E                  B
Where my love lies asleep
E                        B
There's no chains to her spirit
E                 B
As she enters the doorway
   E      Bsus B   F#  E B C#m B
Of dreams drifting free
E                         B
Lightning's flash, rivers roar
E                      B
Round the island she's sleeping
E              B
And they echo soul
     E      Bsus   B    F#        E B C#m B
That speaks where she's sleeping
E                  B
Where my love lies asleep
E                   B
There's no past nor tomorrow
E                 B
Only treasures to keep
           E     Bsus  B  F#     E B C#m B
There's no fears there to borrow

harmonica break

E                       B
Through the hallways of wonder
E                     B
Down the steps of the deep
E                    B
And the secrets that drum
         E    Bsus B   F#   E B C#m B
Where my love lies asleep
E                    B
Past the suns in the morning
E                       B
Past the stars in their sleep
E                       B
And the worlds that are near
         E    Bsus B   F#   E B C#m B  E
Where my love lies asleep
