(Am - Am7 Fade-in) 

Am                             E7sus4   E7 
The only time I ever heard the voice of God 
            F              C            E7sus4            E7 
Was in the silence of the night in the arms of the one I love 
Dm              G         C C9/B Am 
Staring at the ceiling up above 
     G               E7sus4   E       Am 
Like it contained the secrets of the stars 


Am                         E7sus4  E7 
Any time I ever woke up in a dream 
F                  C            E7sus4  E7 
I saw my shadow there staring back at me 
Dm              G         C C9/B Am 
Moving through the walls and wondering 
        G         E7sus4   E      Am 
As all the world rose up inside of me 


    F                E7sus4  E7 
And I long to hear the melody 
     Am  Gadd4  F       Em   Dm 
That one time played inside my mind 
    Dm              E7sus4  E7 
And to love another helplessly 
   Am   Gadd4  F    Em    F     Em   E7sus4 E7 
So breathing feels like putting out a fire 


Am                           E7sus4  E7 
Any time my life flashes in front of me 
F                C            E7sus4  E7 
I see a child there as if on a screen 
Dm              G       C C9/B Am 
Standing in the shadows flickering 
        G    E7sus4   E     Am 
For a moment I know what it means 


**Joey's chords during Kenneth's solo 
        C - Em - Am  


Am                           E7sus4  E7 
All this time I lived inside a memory 
F                  C           E7sus4                   E7 
Daylight creeping in through a crack in the weathered seams 
Dm            G       C C9/B Am 
Severing the ties and trembling 
G             E7sus4   E      Am 
Losing all the voices in the wind 


    F                E7sus4  E7 
And I long to hear the melody 
     Am  Gadd4  F       Em   Dm 
That one time played inside my mind 
    Dm              E7sus4  E7 
And to love another helplessly 
   Am   Gadd4  F    Em    F     Em E7sus4 E7 
So breathing feels like putting out a fire
