Em
I have been cruel and kind without knowing
C
I fell into silence overwhelmed by these days
    Am
For I had been shown empty rulers,
       B7
ruling all things


Em
Thinking the world was mine to lay hold of
  C
I breathed in the promise of maiden and man
    Am
But each had their own illusions
        B7
to hold on to


Em     D                     C
I only want to be left to my own ways
Em              D                      C         Bm
The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C
I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C
Gathered among them was the morning
                       Em
Giving all its rest


Em
Thinking the world was mine to be lost in
C
I ran with a freedom and sang in between
    Am
For I had the path of wonder
        B7
There before me


Em     D                     C
I only want to be left to my own ways
Em              D                      C         Bm
The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C
I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C
Gathered among them was the morning

Giving all its rest


(Solo)  Em C Am B7


Em     D                     C
I only want to be left to my own ways
Em              D                      C         Bm
The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C
I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C
Gathered among them was the morning
                       Em
Giving all its rest


       D                     C
I only want to be left to my own ways

The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C
I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C
Gathered among them was the morning
                       Em
Giving all its rest
