And on to eternity,
A (x02220@1)     E/G# (143121@4)      A (x02220@1)        EAnd (022100@1)far away I can hear your voice,
       A (x02220@1)            E/G# (143121@4)         Bsus4I (x24452@1)can hear it in the silence of the morning,
 B (x2444x@1)       E (022100@1)    F#m (244222@1)        E/G# (143121@4)ABut (x02220@1)these broken wings have let me down
E/G# (143121@4)name="chord_244222@1">F#m        F#m7/B      E (022100@1) Esus4- (022200@1)E- (022100@1)Esus4 (022200@1)They can�t even carry me home.
In broken dreams that keep me from sleeping
I remember all the things I said,
Well I've broken all the promises
I said I would be keeping,
They're gone, like leaves they fell,
For it's so hard when you�re far away,
All I needed was a shoulder I could cry on,
Now these broken dreams have woken me,
My love, will you carry me home.
E (022100@1)name="chord_022200@1">Esus4        B (x2444x@1)Or will you treat me like some traveller
      A (x02220@1)     E/G# (143121@4)     EOn (022100@1)a dark and lonely road,
    F#m (244222@1)      E/G# (143121@4)   A (x02220@1)           E/G# (143121@4)   F#m7 (131141@2) B (x2444x@1)Who sees a light and a woman who will give him love,
        E (022100@1)                         F#mOh (244222@1)and just when she reaches the part
                        E/G# (143121@4)             AWhen (x02220@1)she's supposed to comfort his broken heart
           E (022100@1)       F#m (244222@1)                  B (x2444x@1) A- (x02220@1) E/G#- (143121@4)F#m (244222@1)She turns away, and sends him travelling on, on.
Oh when I left I believed that nothing would go wrong
I thought the whole world would be waiting for my story,
Take me back, my love, I need you now,
Come back and carry me home,
E (022100@1)               D (xx0232@1)        C#m (x13321@4)      ATake (x02220@1)me back and heal these broken wings,
