    soul again. Just a poor \{?\} on the run. How did I get

    C#mBF#BBF#
     
    B
    I hear those ancient lullabies. And as I watch the seedling 
    grow,

    When the jagged edge appears

    thru the distance, clouds of tears. I'm like a bridge that was 
    washed
    C#mDC#mBEC#mA
     
    B
    away, my foundations were made of clay. As my soul slides down to 
    EC#mABEC#mA

    how could I lose him, what did I try? Bit by bit, I've
