    Chorus

       Am7b5        Bm                Em
    I believe this rain won’t last forever
          C         D             Em 
    Can I tame this lonely nights parade
          Am7b5     Bm            Em
    I can change my oath for this endeavor
         C       D            C       D             D     G/B   G/C
    Am I sane or lying,  Am I sane or lying, to the shade
           D     G/B   G/C
    To the shade
    

    Verse 2
    Wasting lies, a fragrant speech
    Passengers fasten to their grief
    Skipping upon a bridge of glass
    Confident and frightened they lead through the path

    Guitar lead over verse chord progression 3X 
    Then chorus progression, then verse progression again
    

    Verse 3
    Alone in the night nothing seems to be learned
    Out in the distance a faint cry is heard
    A wishing well, with a bucket that weeps
    Wishing to drink from the well at its feet

    Chorus
