When the dream came
  A                      E (use intro shapes as fill)
I held my breath with my eyes closed
I went insane
       A                       E
like a smoke ring day when the wind blows
      A                  E
Now I won't be back till later on
     A               F#m     B
if I do come back at all
      D        A        D               
But I love you,   and I miss you now.

Repeat intro.

In a strange game,
I saw myself as you knew me
When the change came
and you had a chance to see through me
Though the other side is just the same,
You can tell my dream is real.
Because I love you, can you feel it now?

Repeat intro.

Hold a D chord 8 beats.

Repeat intro.

          A             E
Though we rush ahead to save our time
       A            F#m     B
we are only what we feel
      D         A          D                     
But I love you,    can you feel it now

Repeat intro.
