After The Fall

	  		Intro     G         Notes played    C# D B 
Riff 1 A A G/A G   x3          G/D G/E G/F# G/E 

D            A                        Em                        Bm              
I just had a really bad fall and this time it was harder to get up than before  
  D                            A                 Em (Hold) 
I shouted to the heavens and a vision appeared I cried out "Can you help?", 
     G                    Riff1 
it replied "Not at all"  
G                      Riff 1   G                    Riff 1  G             
After the fall is over          You'll be on your own        After the fall is over  
            D                  A                         Bm                G 
There'll be wrecks to clear in this war zone There'll be much to clean and time to atone  
    D                       A                   Bm                          G 
But while it's dark you can shelter here In the bleak midwinter when you're feeling the fear  
                 Em (hold)         A           Riff 2D     A   G    D D    Riff1 
Ah, but when the mist clears, the sun will shine again  
  G                           Riff1  G                         Riff1 G                           Riff1 
A life's gotta have direction        After the deals are done        You gotta ask the question  
D                    A                      Em 
Ask yourself why you go through it all When morality kicks in,  
who will catch you when you fall  
      D                     A                       Em 
I'm a sinner waiting at the traveler's rest Seeking refuge from the storm,  
and I'm a grateful guest  
      D                    A 
And a prophet cries out in high platitudes  
  Em                         Bm 
I smile and say, "Hey, I was just passing through"  
       D                         A 
And an angel cries, "Wait, we'll tell you when to move"  
     Em                             D                     Riff 1 
Even at the gates of Heaven I'll be waiting in a queue  
G                                Riff1  G                            Riff1 
Seems like I'm falling upwards          Into the great white blue  
G                           Riff1 
And all my imperfections  
    D                    A 
You can learn your lines and fabricate a show  
        Bm                    G  
But the way we come in, yeah, that's the way we're gonna go  
We cheat and lie to conquer our fears  
We can put on a smile just to cover up the tears
