She has only whispers of some quiet conversa - tion

I stopped an old man along the way
SI                  LA            DO#m             LAbm  LA DO#m
Hoping to find some old forgotten words of ancient melo-dies

The wild dogs cry out in the night
SI           LA                   DO#m           LAbm  LA DO#m
As they grow restless longing for some solitary compa-ny
SI         MIbm              LAbm
I know that I must do what's right
SI                    LA         DO#m                  
Sure as kilimangiaro rises like olimpus
               LAbm  LA  DO#m
above the seranget-ti
SI        MIb7              LAbm
I seek to cure what's deep inside
LAbm                LA              DO#m
Frightened of this thing that I've become
