Pilgrims

Chord transcription by Pedro Marques, 27. June 2007

Eb – Fmaj7 – Esus
Eb
Sometimes you feel so far away,
D
distanced from all the action of the play,
Eb
unable to grasp significance,
D
marking the plot with diffident dismay,
Eb Fmaj7 Esus
stranded at centre stage,
Gm Fmaj7 Gm D
scrabbling through your diary for a lost page:
Eb F Esus
unsure of the dream.
Eb
Kicking a stone across the beach,
D
aching for love and comfort out of reach:
Eb
the way ahead seems to be so bleak,
D
there's no-one with any friendship left to speak
Eb F Esus
or show any relation
Gm F Gm D
between your present and future situations...
Eb F Esus
lost to the dream.
Bbmaj7 – Bbm7+ – Bbmaj7,9 – F#no5 – G#no5 – A#no5
Away, away, away--look to the future day
Bbmaj7 – Bbm7+ – Bbmaj7,9
for hope, some form of peace
F#no5 – G#no5 – A#no5
within the growing storm.
Ab/C Bb6
I climb through the evening,
Ab/C Bb6
alive and believing
Fm Eb Bb
in time we shall all know our goals
and so, finally, home;
Ab/C Bb6
for now, all is secret -
Ab/C Bb6
though how could I speak it,
Fm Eb Bb
allow me the dream in my eye!
I've been waiting for such a long time
Ab/C Bb
just to see it at last, all of the hands tightly clasped,
Ab/C
all of us pilgrims.
Eb
Walking in silence down the coast,
D
merely to journey - here hope is the most,
Eb
merely to know there is an end;
D
all of us - lovers, brothers, sisters, friends
hand in hand.
Gm F Gm D
Shining footprints on the wet sand
Eb F Esus
lead to the dream.
Bbmaj7 Bbm7+ Bbmaj7,9 – F#no5 – G#no5 – A#no5
The time has come, the tide has almost run
Bbmaj7 Bbm7+ Bbmaj7 – F#no5 – G#no5 – A#no5
and drained the deep: I rise from lifelong sleep.
Ab/C Bb6
It seems such a long time
Ab/C Bb6
I've dreamed but now, awake,
Fm Eb Bb
I can see we are pilgrims and so
must walk this road,
Ab/C Bb6
unknown in our purpose,
Ab/C Bb6
alone, but not worthless,
Fm Eb Bb
and home ever calling us on.
We've been waiting here for so long,
Ab/C Bb6
all of our hands joined in hope,
Ab/C Bb6
holding the weight on the rope
all of us Pilgrims
Ab/C – Bb6 – Ab/C – Bb6 – Fm – Eb – Bb – repeat until end
