D          C   G   C            D      D
Rising and falling lighter than air

Silently calling no one is there
    G            C  Am     C           D     D

Voices of strangers keep me from sleep
D        C G          C        D       D
Guardian angels watch over the deep
  G            C  Am       G          D      D
A ship that is sailing way out to the sea

Love that lies sleeping wakes in the night

Secrets for keeping that won't see the light
