    Imaginary

    Evanescence

     

    Intro:  / Em – Em/D - / C – Em/B - /

               

                / Em/A – Em/G - / B/F# - B7 - /

     

        Em        Em/D        C                   Em/B 

    Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming,

    Em/A     Em/G         B/F#    B        Em  Em/D  C  B7              
    Cannot cease for the fear of   silent nights.

    Em          Em/D            C                Em/B  
    Oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming,

    Em/A    Em/G          B/F#   B     Em  Em/D  C  B7              
          The goddess of imagi -  nary light.

    Chorus:

    Em                          C
    In my field of paper flowers,

    Em                       C
    And candy clouds of lullaby.

    Em                            C
    I lie inside myself for hours,

             Em                                    C
    And watch my purple sky fly over me.

     

    / B - - - / B  B/A  B/G  B/F# /

    Em                   Dsus2/4

    I linger in the doorways,

           Em                                                    Dsus2/4
    Of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name,

                  Em                                          Dsus2/4
    Let me stay where the wind will whisper to me,

                      Em                                          Dsus2/4
    Where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story.

    Em                                               C
    If you need to leave the world you live in,

    Em                                               C
    Lay your head down and stay a while.

    Em                                             C
    Though you may not remember dreaming,

    Em                                                 C
    Something waits for you to breath again.
