Eb5  F5  E5

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,
Eb5      F5  E5
stranded at centre stage,
G5                       F5       G5   D5 D5  
scrabbling through your diary for a lost page:
Eb5 F5  E5
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
Eb5 F5 E5
or show any relation
             G5          F5   G5   D5 D5
between your present and future situations...
Eb5 F5 E5
lost to the dream.

Bb5     Bb5  A5   F#5          Ab5    Bb5 
Away,   away,  away - look to the future day
Bb5            Bb5   A5 
for hope, some form of peace
F#5         Ab5     Bb5
within the growing storm.

Ab5                  G5       Ab5           G5
I climb through the evening, alive and believing
Ab5               F5       Bb5 Eb5                   Bb5
in time we shall all know our goals and so, finally, home;
Ab5               G5      Ab5                 G5
for now, all is secret - though how could I speak it,
Ab5           F5       Bb5 Eb5
allow me the dream in my eye!
          Bb5                       Ab5
I've been waiting for such a long time
        F#5  Ab5    Bb5
just to see it at last, 
           F#5    Ab5      Bb5
all of the hands tightly clasped,

          F#5 Ab5
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
Eb5 F5  E5
hand in hand....
G5      F5             G5   D5 D5
Shining footprints on the wet sand
Eb5 F5  E5
lead to the dream.

Bridge 2:
Bb5          Bb5     A5     F#5  Ab5 Bb5 
The time has come, the tide has almost run   
    Bb5         Bb5
and drained the deep: 
  A5       F#5  Ab5 Bb5
I rise from lifelong sleep.

Chorus 2:
Ab5              G5              Ab5
It seems such a long time I've dreamed -
     G5           Ab5
now, awake, I can see
       F5       Bb5 Eb5                Bb5
we are pilgrims and so must walk this road,
  Ab5           G5      Ab5             G5       
unknown in our purpose, alone, but not worthless,
Ab5            F5      Bb5 Eb5
and home ever calling us on.
           Bb5                  Ab5
We've been waiting here for so long,

           F#5    Ab5        Bb5
all of our hands joined in hope,
            F#5     Ab5     Bb5
holding the weight on the rope - 
          F#5 Ab5
all of us Pilgrims.
