Tuning: Eb Bb F# C# Ab Eb

B F# E              F#                Abm       E
     It felt like springtime on this february morning
         B                    F#           B       F#
In the courtyard birds were singing your praise
E           F#                 Abm              E
I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel
   B                   F#
Alright, I carry them with me today now

    B    F#     E       F#           B          F#               E
    As I lay me down to sleep, yes I pray, that you will hold me dear
    F#               B     F#       E         F#        B
    Though I'm far away, I whisper your name, into the sky
        F#             E      F#
    And I will wake up happy

B           F#  E           F#            Abm             E
I wonder why ... I feel so high, while I'm not above my sorrow
         B              F#        B
Heavy hearted 'til you call my name
F#                   E                  F#           Abm
And it sounds like churchbells or the whistle of a train
               E               B                   F#
On a summer evening I want to meet you there, I'm barely breathing...

2x Chorus

B             D       A            E                D
It's not too near for me, like a flower i need the rain
                 F      C          G               F
Though it's not real to me, every season has its change
           D                E
And I will see you when the sun comes out again
