I'm awake in the in---finite cold

And I lift my hands and pray to be only yours

I know now you're my only hope

Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again

NOTE:On every chord, except those in the chorus, and the bridge, you play the
top string of that chord once, and then play the rest of the chord twice.
Here is an example.

This tab should be 100% perfect, but if you find something wrong, you can
post a comment, so I can fix it. I love this song, because it's the only
Switchfoot song that has a waltz feel. I hope you enjoy this tab.
