Sophie Hawkins – As I Lay Me Down


This video is requested from GuitarTutee.

Standard Tuning:

G D C D Em C
it felt like springtime on this february morning
G D G D
in the courtyard birds were singing your praise
C D Em C
i’m still recalling things you said to make me feel
G D
alright, i carry them with me today now

chorus:

G D C D G D C
as i lay me down to sleep, yes i pray, that you will hold me dear
D G D C D G
though i’m far away, i whisper your name, into the sky
D C D
and i will wake up happy

G D C D Em C
i wonder why — i feel so high, while i’m not above my sorrow
G D G
heavy hearted ’til you call my name
D C D Em
and it sounds like churchbells or the whistle of a train
C G D
on a summer evening I want to meet you there, i’m barely breathing…

<< chorus x2 >>

G Bb F Eb
it’s not too near for me, like a flower i need the rain
Bb C# G# F# G#
though it’s not real to me, every season has its change
Bb C
and i will see you when the sun comes out again
