Intro: Dm / Dm / G / G 


C                              Am 
There's a light that's shining now 
F                      C 
And a calm wind in the pine 
C                          Am    
For the fate of a fearsome travesty 
Dm 
Seems to have forgotten me 
Fmaj7 
Seems to have forgotten me 

C                       Am 
If it hasn't learned by now 
F                      C   
Where I've hid so very long 
C                             Am  
I'll come safely out into the silence found 
Dm 
In the wake of its passing on 
Fmaj7 
In the wake of its passing on 


F                   C              Dm             G 
A Spartan smile and westward stare hold a promise in the air 
F                                      C 
That's the way they used to find their own way home 
Dm            G 
By the stars, on their own 
Dm            Fmaj7 
By the stars, on their own 


C                         Am 
While I pray for Promised Land 
F                     C 
To replace all I have made 
C                           Am 
Darkness steals the light I bear 
Dm 
And the hope of a lifetime fades 
Fmaj7 
The hope of a lifetime fades 


Bridge: Dm / Dm / G / G / C / C / F / F / Dm / G / C / C 


C                   Am  
In the newfound reverie 
F                C 
Of quiet peace I found 
C                        Am 
Freedom comes from being unafraid 
Dm 
Of the heartache that can plague a man 
Fmaj7 
The heartache that can plague a man 


F                   C              Dm             G 
A Spartan smile and westward stare hold a promise in the air 
F                                      C 
That's the way they used to find their own way home 
Dm            G 
By the stars, on their own 
Dm            Fmaj7 
By the stars, on their own
