Hymn for the Missing
From: Until We Have Faces
By: RED

This is my version of "Hymn for the Missing". Capoing the song up higher makes it 
much lighter sounding but you can keep the same vocals because of the transposition. 
I really did this mostly because I hate the C7 chord and I wanted an easier way to 
play it, so I based it off a transposition of the first tab out here. Some of the 
chords, especially the C's and G's can be swapped with the other voicing in the 
song: just play them back and forth. During the verses play around with the C7's, 
C's, G6's, and G's to get a sound you like, same thing with Em7, E, Dsus4, and D in 
the interludes.

The interlude is a little complicated-looking how I have it written out. It's 
basically Em, D, Em, D, C, and each receive four beats (the middle Em has an 
additional measure), but as you're strumming them, add in the Dsus4 and Em7 for part 
of your strumming until it sounds right. I have the measures marked out on the first 
interlude. Let the last strum of the C7 ring into the chorus and don't start 
strumming again till the Em.


VERSE 1:

   Em              D
We tried to walk together
         C        C7      G6
But the night was growing dark
Em                  D
Thought you were beside me
       C7         C7       G6
But I reached and you were gone
    Em                D
Sometimes I hear you calling
           C       C7       G6
From some lost and distant shore
   Em              D                C7          G6
I hear you crying softly before the way it was before


INTERLUDE:
   V         V        V    V   V
Em | D Dsus4 | Em Em7 | Em | D | C C7


CHORUS:

              Em
Where are you now?
         D
Are you lost?
        G        C7
Will I find you again?
         Em
Are you alone?
          D
Are you afraid?
          G6          C    C7
Are you searching for me?
            Em           D
Why did you go I had to stay
          G           C
Now I'm reaching for you
          Em             D
Will you wait, will you wake
       G6        Em   Em7
Will I see you again?

Verse 2

     Em               D
You took it with you when you left
       C        C7      G6
These scars are just a trace
Em              D
Now it wonders lost and wounded
     C7         C7   G6
This heart that I misplaced


INTERLUDE:

Em D Dsus4 Em Em7 Em D C C7


CHORUS:

              Em
Where are you now?
         D
Are you lost?
        G        C7
Will I find you again?
         Em
Are you alone?
          D
Are you afraid?
          G6          C   C7
Are you searching for me?
            Em           D
Why did you go I had to stay
          G           C
Now I'm reaching for you
          Em             D
Will you wait, will you wake
       G6        Em   
Will I see you again?
