Now that wisdom has come, everything else fades,

She said she realizes that,

C
She's seen her better days,

For the way she is today,

Then only the strong shall survive, she said,

G                    Cadd9
But I'm feeling quite weak, she said,

G                     Cadd9
Won't you comfort and forgive me, she said

Riff x4

Riff                          Riff
She said she's still searching for salvation's light,

Riff                     Riff
Yeah, she wishes all day, then she prays all night,

F
She said she won't speak of love,

C
Cause love she's never known,

Riff x2

F
And it's moments like these,

C
When she hates to be alone,

Riff x2
(drum beat)

G                  Cadd9
Life's river shall rise, she said,

G              Cadd9
Then only the strong shall survive, she said,

But I'm feeling quite weak, she said,

Will you comfort and forgive me, she said,

That's it.  It's one of my favorite songs, so I felt it needed to be done justice.  I
performed this at places that got some major crowds and they loved it the way it was done,
is EXACTLY as I've relayed it to you.  The only thing I couldn't put in words or symbols 
timing.  That's up to you.  If you can figure this out, then you can figure out the
 It's not really that hard.

"You stood on the shoulders of geniuses and before you even knew what you had, you
it, packaged it, slapped it on a plastic lunchbox and now, you're selling it."  -Ian Malcolm
