My Hand To God

ascending notes a b d g

Bm7
There's a displacement in the air, Someone else is breathing
Em
Tonight could be the night, I think I may be leaving
Bm7
There's a slight pressure in my ear, Something here is moving
Em
Never seen the moon so big and bright or had a dream this strangely soothing
                 Bm        Am
It's good you're sleeping, baby
G#m               F#m
I won't wake you, sweetheart

   Bm/F#
   My hand to God
   Em
   I believe this is true
   Bm/F#
   Beyond the dark gate I see here now
   Em
   I'll be waiting for you
             Em
   All we've dreaded and hoped for is here
   G#m
   What we both welcome and fear
     F#m
   I pray you don't despair, I'll always be near
      Bm7
   My hand to God, my hand to God
Em

Bm7
We've both embraced the sobering truth: It's a world without happy endings
Em
Now it's as if the film has stopped and real life is just beginning
           Bm        Am
You know I love you, sweetheart
G#m                F#m
See you again soon, baby

   Bm/F#
   My hand to God
   Em
   I believe this is true
   Bm/F#
   Beyond the dark gate I see here now
   Em
   I'll be waiting for you
             Em
   All we've dreaded and hoped for is here
   G#m
   What we both welcome and fear
     F#m
   I pray you don't despair, I'll always be near
      Bm7
   My hand to God, my hand to God
F  5 bars
Bm7    Em  as in verse

Bm7
Well, it's easier than I thought it would be, My chest is full and singing with blood
Em
You're the only reason I hesitate but it's like swimming against a flood
Bm         Am
Be strong, sweetheart
G#m                F#m
Won't be long now, baby

   Bm/F#
   My hand to God
   Em
   I believe this is true
   Bm/F#
   Beyond the dark gate I see here now
   Em
   I'll be waiting for you
             Em
   All we've dreaded and hoped for is here
   G#m
   What we both welcome and fear
     F#m
   I pray you don't despair, I'll always be near
   Bm  Am   G#m   F#m

   G#m
My hand to God.
