[Guitar tacit]
When I close my eyes
I can see forever
And the leaves on the trees
Are a brilliant green
         Cadd9 G   Cadd9
My heart hears the sound
     Cadd9 G    D
Of a dis - tant calling
    Am7        D11          [Riff 1]
The wind on my face says to me
            Am7     D11
I've got to live my life
  C  C/B      Cadd9 G Cadd9  Cadd9 G D  Cadd9 G Cadd9  Cadd9 G D
  di - fferently

[Chorus]
       Cadd9 G  Cadd9
When I close my eyes
      Cadd9 G  D
I can see   forever
        Cadd9  G      Em7
And the leaves on the trees
      Cadd9 G    D
Are a brill-iant green
         Cadd9 G   Cadd9
My heart hears the sound
     Cadd9 G    D
Of a dis - tant calling
    Am7        D11          [Riff 1]
The wind on my face says to me
            Am7     D11
I've got to live my life
  C  C/B      Cadd9 G Cadd9  Cadd9 G D  Cadd9 G Cadd9  Cadd9 G D

[Verse]
          C      Em
I say goodbye to spring
        G       D
And farewell to summer
   C     Em      D      Dsus4 D
Hello to falling leaves
   C          Em
My life looks small
       G       D
In the face of change
    C          Em             D  Dsus4 D
The wind feels too strong for me

          C      Em
I say goodbye to safe
    G      D
Goodbye to certain
   C     Em      D   Dsus4 D
Hello to what is new
         C        Em
It's the best and worst
   G     D
Of times together
       C          Em          D    Dsus4 D
In the storm I forget what is true

[Chorus]

I say okay I don't know
Okay I'm afraid
I'll take it one step at a time
It may take a while
For the fog to burn off
Time be my friend for a while

[Chorus]
[Bridge/solo]
  Am7 D11 [Riff 1]
  Am7 D11 [Riff 1]
  Am7 D11 C C/B  Cadd9 G Cadd9  Cadd9 G D  Cadd9 G Cadd9  Cadd9 G D

I say goodbye to control
It's such an illusion
Hello to the truth of my need
The promise of presence
Is all that I have now
Sometimes I don't believe

[Chorus]

       Cadd9 G  Cadd9
When I close my eyes
