THE DAY - Sonata Arctica
Acoustic version by sinForge xJp
Standard Tuning (EADGBe), Capo 1
This is NOT based on an acoustic performance/recording!!

========================================================
*The way the guitar sounds in this song, I'll assume  |
 Elias was using a 7-string (tuned a half step down)  |
 the way he usually does, but I tabbed the chords for |
 a 6-string in standard tuning like I usually do!!!   |
 The capo puts the bulk of the song in the correct    |
 key.  It makes the intro a hassel, but it's doable*  |

[Key change - C major, relative to the capo]

G
Sea full of diamonds, good morning new day
G
I'll fix us breakfast, and the newspaper says
    C                                  G
The company will lay off 5,000 souls today

   G
"I wish I was a child with no worries back then", I say
 G
"Kiss me and smile...", you reply, in your way
    C                                               G
You wake up the children for school... for the last time
    C
For suddenly our beautiful life blurs away
        G
And the world breaks into pieces

C.. C.. C.. C..
G.. G.. D/F#.. Em*

       G         D/F#     Bm
'Cause today the sea came in
         D                 Em*
The wave came and stole my loved ones
  G           D/F#   Bm                        Em*
I write these lines alone on the rooftop of my home
     G            D/F# Bm      D       Em*
I'm adrift on the vast oceans, can you feel me?
       G       D/F# Bm         D
I will not see you again, even if I live through
    Em
The day when the sea came...
(Em)
Day when the sea came...
(Em)
Day when the sea came in...

Em... Em... D...  Em...

Em
I trace the scenes our children once played
Em
Names carved in wood, all the words, bound to fade
    D
I believe, my love, your memory and dreams
                        Em
Deserve to live again tomorrow...


    C                                                         G
(My love...) We built this world together, we lived in here together,
                                                     C
And shared the fun together, bore the sorrows, all together
                                                 (My friend...)
                                                    G
We'll win the fight together, we'll lose the game together
                                                    C
Greet the heroes all together, and forever, we'll remember
                                                (My world...)
                                                 G
We built this world together, we lived in here together
                                                     C
And shared the fun together, bore the sorrows, all together
                                                G
And as long as we're together, in spirit, yet together,
                                                     C     G
You're the air that I am kissing, you will always be there...

                      C    G
I can feel you in the wind...
                      C    G
I can feel you in the wind...

C... G... C...
