This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

A2                                                                E7
  No-one can take your place with me and time has proven that I'm right
                                                            A2
  There's no place I'd rather be than at your place for the night
                                                              E7
  No time can pass your sight unseen, no moment steals away unfound
                                                                A2
  A lifetime lived in such a dream floats like a feather to the ground

       D             C#                   F#m
         And for the first time I've been seeing
             D                A2          E7
         The things I'd never notice, without you
       D             C#                F#m
         And for the first time I'm discovering
             D               A2         E
         The things I use to treasure, about you
       A  A13  A A13  A    A13  A A13  A

A2                                                                 E7
  The birds like leaves on Winterwood sing hopeful songs on dismal days
                                                                              A2
  They've learned to live life as they should, they are at peace with natures ways
                                                                   E7
  You are as natural as the night and all that springs from you is good
                                                                       A2
  And the children born beneath your light are like the birds on Winterwood
