                Am                   Cm                               Gm
On a winter's night, stars are cold and bright in the sky,
Gm                          Fm          Gm
The slumber of the earth is pure and deep
Am                  Cm                      Gm
From a distant wood, drifts the echo of a beast
Gm                   Fm                     Am
The old man stirs and wakens in the night
Dm                                                C
He stands before the window gazing at the grave
Dm                                                 C
Forgotten dreams are flashing through his weary mind
Dm                               C                                         A2
And though his life is empty, he pretends that she's still there

Am                       Cm                                  Gm
With hunger in his soul, he yearns for life and love gone by,
Gm                Fm                  Gm
With memories his one and only joy
Am                       Cm                                               Gm
But All he has to give, you know he would gladly give to bring back the life,
Gm                    Fm                        Am
And raise the one who lies beneath the snow
Dm                                             C
He lights a lamp and looks at pictures of the past
Dm                                             C
The faces of their youth still glow with new-found love,
Dm                         C                     A2
But the pictures faded, and time has stolen youth away

Dm                                            Cm
With a spoken word that he thought he heard from her lips,
Dm                      Bb                       F      
He felt another presence in the room,
Dm                                          Cm
He was filled with fear but turned with joy he arose
Dm                                                            Am
And turned to face the image that he knew
Dm                                                Cm
She stood before him and her hand reached out for his
Dm                                              Bb
A peaceful light shone in her eyes
C                                  Bb                        Dm
She said she'd come to soothe him, and that someday they'd be as one

Am                   Cm                      Gm
She began to fade and her image disappeared,
Gm                      Fm                   Gm
So he was left alone to face another night,
Am                               Cm         Gm
Never in his life, had he been so held in awe,
Gm                  Fm              Am
As he faced the apparition of his wife
Dm                                             C
He stood before the window gazing at the grave,
Dm                                             C
And with a lightened heart he saw the first of dawn,
Dm                                C                         D
He knew that she was waiting, that someday they'd be as one
