Intro: E 

          A            Eb/G 
If you leap awake 
            F#m7         B9/sus4      E 
In the mirror of a bad            dream 
                  F#7                E6 
And for a fraction of a second 
                 /D               Bsus9          C#m 
You can't remember where you are 
                           A            E/G 
Just open your window  
         F#m7           B9/sus4  E 
And follow your memory upstream 
             F#7                     E6 
To the meadow in the mountain 
                   E/D#                 B          C#m 
Where we counted every falling star 

                        A                        E 
I believe the light that shines on you 
        F#m7           B7sus4        E 
Will shine on you              forever 
                          F#7              E6 
And though I can't guarantee  
                              E/D#             B                  C#m 
There's nothing scary hiding under your bed 
                 A           E 
I’m gonna stand guard 
  F#m7                       B7sus4       E 
Like a postcard of a Golden Retriever 
                   F#7             E6 
And never leave till I leave you  
              E/D#            B9/sus4  C#m 
With a sweet dream in your head 


Eadd9                                        Aadd9 
            I'm gonna watch you shine 
                                Eadd9 
Gonna watch you grow 
                           Aadd9 
Gonna paint a sign 
                             Eadd9 
So you'll always know 
                   Add9                  Eadd9     Aadd9 
As long as one and one is two          (oo-oo) 
                      E6                E/D# 
There could never be a father 
                           C#m7                       B9/sus4 
Who loved his daughter more than I love you 

E 
Trust your intuition 
It's just like going fishing 
        F#7                 E6 
You cast your line 
        E/D#       B9/sus4        C#m       
And hope you get a bite 
                                      A        E/G#   F#m7 
But you don't need to waste your time 
E 
Worrying about the market place 

Try to help the human race 
F#7             E6             E/D#  B                          C#m 
Struggling to survive its      harshest night 

Eadd9                                        Aadd9 
            I'm gonna watch you shine 
                                Eadd9 
Gonna watch you grow 
                           Aadd9 
Gonna paint a sign 
                             Eadd9 
So you'll always know 
                   Add9                  Eadd9     Aadd9 
As long as one and one is two          (oo-oo) 
                      E6                E/D# 
There could never be a father 
                           C#m7                                   C#m  A6  B7
