[Verse 1]
G#m
All that I felt on the first time it happened
E
Was the feeling of something bad coming true
F#
One day I was happy, one day I was laughing
G#m
Then, somewhere a chain snapped; like that, I was loose

[Verse 2]
G#m
Why don’t anything give me the joy that it used to?
E
Why don’t anything feel as real as it once was?
F#
I feel so sad but that ain’t how I choose to
G#m
It shouldn’t have to hurt so bad but it does

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone

[Verse 3]
G#m
It was a summer night when I found my religion
E
I was under the tent, I was struck by the palm
F#
And the Holy Spirit rained down upon me a vision
G#m
And I felt better a little while but then it was gone

[Verse 4]
G#m
I went to the mountain then I went to the cavern
E
I washed myself in the river and I waited on love
F#
But I was lonely and dark as the moons around Saturn
G#m
Yeah, darkness for miles was all that there was

[Verse 5]
G#m
It was after the Lord and me parted ways that I found her
E
And she was taking pictures of people who came in to the mall
F#
And she took my portrait as well as she could do
G#m
With someone who seemed to be not there at all

[Verse 6]
G#m
I stayed with her a while and I called myself happy
E
I clung to her hands, and her hair, and her mouth
F#
But like every man who finds out he is drowning
G#m
I held on to her hard until I just wore her out

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone

[Verse 7]
G#m
So I took off south like the beat of a bat wing
E
I fell in with this boat salesman and a kid
F#
One carried the nails for his own crucifixion
G#m
The other one seemed to screw up whatever he did

[Verse 8]
G#m
The kid always loved me like I was his neighbor
E
He asked all about me and my life on the road
F#
And the boat salesman, when he found out he wasn’t a savior
G#m
Shot himself in the head in a Key West Payday Loan

[Verse 9]
G#m
I got jobs and I lost them like the beat of a drummer
E
Who lost sleep, and got drunk, and couldn’t see through his tears
F#
And just how I survived, I cannot even remember
G#m
But I know that it lasted a couple of years

[Verse 10]
G#m
I moved down deep into the jungle during those days
E
I existed on oranges and oxygen
F#
But I carried the sadness against which even the old ways
G#m
Reached their limits of power and could not defend

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone

[Verse 11]
G#m
I wandered through temples covered over with Saints’ days
E
I wandered through drug labs and kidnaps and graves
F#
I tried my best to meet death by the jaguar or AK
G#m
But I was covered over with grief and by this, I was saved

[Verse 12]
G#m
When I was up, I saw the connection between all of all things
E
When I was up, I was so high up above
F#
That the world appeared to me electric and thrilling
G#m
With a fineness of lightning and the sweet milk of love

[Verse 13]
G#m
When I was down, the whole world melted
E
In burning black plastic wherever I chanced to be
F#
And off that, I was judged with some kind of a tragic
G#m
Mistake that had somehow crawled out of the sea

[Verse 14]
G#m
How long until I’m free of these devils that bind me?
E
How long until I live the life that I have?
F#
Can I outstrip a creator who searches and finds me
G#m
Then leaves me with the demons that I already have?

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone

[Verse 15]
G#m
I went to the doctor who sent me to a doctor
E
Who sent me to a doctor who sent me to a room
F#
And that’s where I waited with the world ending around me
G#m
And the voices in my head jangling ’round in a tomb

[Verse 16]
G#m
She gave me a bottle and I took what was in it
E
The stuff in my bloodstream started to rattle and fizz
F#
And I know that they’re working but the devil is still down there
G#m
I tell myself that it’s better and sometimes it is

[Verse 17]
G#m
What else is there to say but to tell you that I love you
E
I haven’t seen much of the world but I know
F#
That there aren’t any others who know me like you do
G#m
And your comfort seems to follow me wherever I go

[Verse 18]
G#m
I know you’re no cure for the darkness inside me
E
But it feels better just to know that you’re near
F#
And your patience, your joy, and your strength are astounding
G#m
And I know that without you, I wouldn’t be here

[Verse 19]
G#m
And I know that without you, I would not be here
E
And I know that without you, I would not be here
F#
I know that without you, I wouldn’t be here
G#m
I know that without you

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone

[Chorus]
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
E
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
F#
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
G#m
Dreams a-keep a-coming but the dream done gone
