                  E (4)

    I had a dream last night while I was laying in my bed

                   E (4)
    And the whole world was standing still and the moon was turning red.
                 E (4)

    I saw a sign in the sky, I have come to set you free

                   E (4)
    There’s a light shining bright, shining down, down on me.

    Chorus:

             E                  G                        A                  E
    I saw fire, fire and brimstone coming down on my head

             E                   G                        A                  E
    I saw fire, fire and brimstone coming down on my head.


                 E (4)

    I look around, I saw eyes, I heard a voice say “come to me”

                  E (4)
    I felt the rumbling beneath my feet and the whole world was shaking free

                  E (4)
    And the sun was standing still, it was dark, but I could see.

    Chorus

    / E - - - / x17


    Chorus

                 E (4)

    I look around, I saw eyes, I heard a voice say “come to me”

                  E (4)
    I felt the rumbling beneath my feet and the whole world was shaking free


    Chorus x2

     

    End on E
