Eb7M  F7M  E4

Verse 1:
Sometimes you feel so far away,
distanced from all the action of the play,
unable to grasp significance,
marking the plot with diffident dismay,
Eb7M      F7M  E4
stranded at centre stage,
G                       F7M       Gm   D D4  
scrabbling through your diary for a lost page:
Eb7M F7M  E4
unsure of the dream.

Verse 2:
Kicking a stone across the beach,
aching for love and comfort out of reach;
the way ahead seems to be so bleak,
there's no-one with any friendship left to speak
Eb7M F7M E4
or show any relation
             Gm          F7M   Gm   D D4
between your present and future situations...
Eb7M F7M E4
lost to the dream.

Bb7     Bb?  A?   F#          Ab7    Bb 
Away,   away,  away - look to the future day
Bb7            Bb?   A? 
for hope, some form of peace
F#         Ab7     Bb
within the growing storm.

Ab                  Gm       Ab           Gm
I climb through the evening, alive and believing
Ab               Fm       Bb7 Eb                   Bb
in time we shall all know our goals and so, finally, home;
Ab               Gm      Ab                 Gm
for now, all is secret - though how could I speak it,
Ab           Fm       Bb7 Eb
allow me the dream in my eye!
          Bb                       Ab
I've been waiting for such a long time
        F#  Ab    Bb
just to see it at last, 
           F#    Ab      Bb
all of the hands tightly clasped,

          F# Ab
all of us pilgrims.

Verse 3:
Walking in silence down the coast,
merely to journey, here hope is the most,
merely to know there is an end;
all of us, lovers, brothers, sisters, friends
Eb7M F7M  E4
hand in hand....
Gm      F7M             Gm   D D4
Shining footprints on the wet sand
Eb7M F7M  E4
lead to the dream.

Bridge 2:
Bb7          Bb?     A?     F#  Ab7 Bb 
The time has come, the tide has almost run   
    Bb7         Bb?
and drained the deep: 
  A?       F#  Ab7 Bb
I rise from lifelong sleep.

Chorus 2:
Ab              Gm              Ab
It seems such a long time I've dreamed -
     Gm           Ab
now, awake, I can see
       Fm       Bb7 Eb                Bb
we are pilgrims and so must walk this road,
  Ab           Gm      Ab             Gm       
unknown in our purpose, alone, but not worthless,
Ab            Fm      Bb7 Eb
and home ever calling us on.
           Bb                  Ab
We've been waiting here for so long,

           F#    Ab        Bb
all of our hands joined in hope,
            F#     Ab     Bb
holding the weight on the rope - 
          F# Ab
all of us Pilgrims.
