Have you ever noticed

C                   C/B        C        C/B
how the leaves will fade?

Am                       Em
When you get used to the season

     B7            Em
it's time again to change

Am                       Em
When you get used to the season

     B7            Em
it's time again to change


  C               C/B        C        C/B
I wasn't counting on

  C                C/B        C        C/B
a life that was so long

    Am              Em
but now that it's begun

    B7                 Em
I'm living it till I'm done

    Am              Em
but now that it's begun

    B7                 Em
I'm living it till I'm done

G*               Dsus/F#
Tell me that I'm dreaming

     C     C/B       Am
that everything I've thought about

    D7       D      D7 D D7 D D7 D
was thought about before

       G*
I have seen

                     Dsus/F#    Em
the space behind the curtain

            Am            C              Gsus/D
and all the things that I hoped it would be

G*         Cadd9  Dsus/F#      Em
Bring me-eeeeee a piece of the rainbow

           Am             C            Gsus/D
'cause I'm running out of colors to describe

       G*  DsusF# Em         (instrumental fill-in)
what I saw-oooooh-ooooh-ooooh



     Am          C              Gsus/D
When I was still dreaming and I opened

   G*      Gsus/D  Em
my eyes

     Am          C              Gsus/D
When I was still dreaming and I opened

   G*      Gsus/D  Em           (instrumental fill-in)
my aaahhhh-aaahhhh-aaahhh-eyes

     Am          C              Gsus/D
When I was still dreaming and I opened

   G*      Cadd9  Gsus/D
my eyes

If you never leave

C            C/B        C        C/B
how will you arrive?

   Am              Em
Beneath the frozen ground

    B7            Em
the seed is still alive

   Am              Em
Beneath the frozen ground

    B7            Em
the seed is still alive
