Lyrics Chord: Dream Theater – The Spirit Carries On


D                     D/F#
Where did we come from? Why are we here?
G                      D               D/C#
Where do we go when we die?
Bm              Bm/A
What lies beyond? What lay before?
E/G#                  Asus4            A

Is anything certain in life?

A:
They say life is too short the here and the now,
and you’re only given one shot.
But could there be more? Have I lived before?

Or could this be all that we’ve got?

B:

Chorus:

G         A                 D       D/C#        Bm
If I die tomorrow, I’d be all right because I believe
G           Em                 D
that after we’re gone, the spirit carries on

Interlude :
D D9 Dsus4  Em .
D D9  Dsus4 Asus4 (drums)

A :

I used to be frightened of dying.
I used to think death was the end.
But that was before, I’m not scared anymore.
I know that my soul will transcend.

A:

I may never find all the answers,
I may never understand why.
I may never prove what I know to be true,
but I know that I still have to try.

B:

Chorus :

If I died tomorrow I’d be all right because I believe
G          Em                 D           D7
that after we’re gone, the spirit carries on

C:
Em                    Eb
Move on, be brave! Don’t weep at my grave!
D                E
because I’m no longer here.
G           Em                      Bm
But please never let your memory of me disappear.

Guitar Solo

Same chords

A:
Safe in the light that surrounds me.
Free of the fear and the pain.
The question in mind has helped me to find
the meaning in my life again.

A:
Victoria’s real! I finally feel
at peace with the girl in my dreams.
And now that I’m here, it’s perfectly clear
I’ll find out what all of this means.

B:
Chorus:

If I died tomorrow I’d be all right because I believe
G           Em                        D
that after we’re gone, the spirit carries  on
