Intro:

C3 G
C1
Loosen the wire, your time has expired,
  
the only word left is “good
G
bye.”
  
In my new dream the light’s 
F
shining on me,
  
little needles of sodium unstitch the seams of the 
C1
sky
G
F
C1
Hold your head higher, the heavenly choir
  
is settling in for the 
G
night.
  
And where I had friends I am 
F
left with loose ends;
  
four hours of vision exchanged for four hours of 
G
fright.
  
But enough of “the 
C2
fight,” enough “you and I,”
  
enough of “pre
G
vail” or “walk in the 
F
light.”
  
While the angels stand 
C2
by I get high as a kite.
  
I’m too tired to 
G
smile or know that I’m 
F
right. Am I 
G
right?
C1 G F G
C3 G
F
And all our best-laid 
G
plans, they 
C
crumbled 
G
in our 
Am
hands.
  
Our flags fell where they’d 
G
fanned.
F
You held in your 
G
breath, long 
C
after pro
G
jections of 
Am
death
  
you sat in the waiting room gasping and rasped on dry 
G
land.
  
But the 
C1
audience is tired; “we’ve had enough fire,
  
we’re entering the age now of 
G
ice.”
  
And I, feeling older, pull 
F
off to the shoulder
  
and wonder, with my head in my hands, should I call my 
G
wife
  
and say “enough ’you and 
C2
I,’ enough of ’the fight,’
  
enough of ’pre
G
vail’ or ’walk in the 
F
light’?”
  
While the angels stood 
C2
by I got high as a kite,
  
too tired to 
G
smile or know that I’m 
F
right.
  
“enough ’you and 
C1
I,’ enough of ’the fight,’
  
enough of ’pre
G
vail’ or ’walk in the 
F
light’?”
  
When the spacecraft came 
C2
down I was left on the ground.
  
Will you keep me a
G
round, will you help me sur
F
vive
  
after my 
G
time?
C1 G F
