Intro: B  F#  B F#  B

 B                 E                          F#
Sleep now, another day in your young lives is done,

       B                   E  
go to sleep now, tomorrow brave new worlds

             F#           B
will surely come, and trouble deep,

              E              F#       B 
it's such a wonder, such a mystery to me.


Somewhere your future friends are lying as you are
and your lovers right now are only crying babes in arms
oh, the world turns under our feet, our lives are passing by
in our sleep


F#  Bbm           G#m           C#   F#
So soon you'll be gone to that wide world

F#   Bbm          G#           F# C#   F#
the tunes of adulthood calling little girls

               E                            F#              B
as though he never knew the meaning of the words until just now

               E                            F#              B
as though he never knew the meaning of the words until just now

               E                            F#              B 
as though he never knew the meaning of the words until just now.
Play with chord inversions, especially on the "so soon..." part.
