Intro: Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Esus Verse 1:
EbSometimes you feel so far away,
Ddistanced from all the action of the play,
Ebunable to grasp significance,
Dmarking the plot with diffident dismay,
Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Esusstranded at centre stage,
G Fmaj7 Gm D Dsus scrabbling through your diary for a lost page:
Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Esusunsure of the dream.
Verse 2:
EbKicking a stone across the beach,
Daching for love and comfort out of reach;
Ebthe way ahead seems to be so bleak,
Dthere's no-one with any friendship left to speak
Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Esusor show any relation
Gm Fmaj7 Gm D Dsusbetween your present and future situations...
Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Esuslost to the dream.
Bb7 Bbdim Adim F# G#7 A# Away, away, away - look to the future day
Bb7 Bbdim Adim for hope, some form of peace
F# G#7 A#within the growing storm.
Ab Gm Ab GmI climb through the evening, alive and believing
Ab Fm Bb7 Eb Bbin time we shall all know our goals and so, finally, home;
Ab Gm Ab Gmfor now, all is secret - though how could I speak it,
Ab Fm Bb7 Eballow me the dream in my eye!
Bb AbI've been waiting for such a long time
F# G# Bbjust to see it at last,
F# G# Bball of the hands tightly clasped,
F# G#all of us pilgrims.
Verse 3:
EbWalking in silence down the coast,
Dmerely to journey, here hope is the most,
Ebmerely to know there is an end;
Dall of us, lovers, brothers, sisters, friends
Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Esushand in hand....
Gm Fmaj7 Gm D DsusShining footprints on the wet sand
Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Esuslead to the dream.
Bridge 2:
Bb7 Bbdim Adim F# G#7 A# The time has come, the tide has almost run
Bb7 Bbdimand drained the deep:
Adim F# G#7 A#I rise from lifelong sleep.
Chorus 2:
Ab Gm AbIt seems such a long time I've dreamed -
Gm Abnow, awake, I can see
Fm Bb7 Eb Bbwe are pilgrims and so must walk this road,
Ab Gm Ab Gm unknown in our purpose, alone, but not worthless,
Ab Fm Bb7 Eband home ever calling us on.
Bb AbWe've been waiting here for so long,
F# G# Bball of our hands joined in hope,
F# G# Bbholding the weight on the rope -
F# G#all of us Pilgrims.
