Intro: D C Bm A D (x3) 

#1. 
D        Am7       D          Am7 
Sheeeeee looked at me and the emptiness in her  
D        Am7      D 
eyes was cruel to see. 
         G               D            G 
Then she turned away and said, once I loved,  
            D 
but love is dead. 
      C                                 D 
And I whispered, sometimes love is only sleeping. 

#2. 
D           G      D                        G 
She said, I cannot cry and I cannot give or feel  
        D 
or even try. 
        G                  D              G 
And her voice was hard and cold, then her sweet  
                  D 
young face looked old. 
      C                                 D 
And I whispered, sometimes love is only sleeping. 

Bridge: 
D 
Through the endless days and nights, could not help  
                    D  Dm       
but wrap herself in sorrow (sorrow.) 
G                                       C      G 
Through the endless days and nights she waited for  
            D Dm 
a shiny new tomorrow (tomorrow.) 
         C         D 
Love was sleeping, sleeping.

D      Am7       D                             Am7 
Sheeee looked at me and her smiling tears were warm and  
          D 
sweet and free. 
D       G                    D          G 
And the moonlight kissed her eyes as it mingled with  
    D 
our sighs. 
        C                                 D 
And she whispered, sometimes love is only sleeping.
