Em
I have been cruel and kind without knowing
C

I fell into silence overwhelmed by these days
    Am
For I had been shown empty rulers,
       B7
ruling all things


Em
Thinking the world was mine to lay hold of
  C

I breathed in the promise of maiden and man
    Am
But each had their own illusions
        B7
to hold on to


Em     D                     C

I only want to be left to my own ways
Em              D                      C         Bm
The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C

I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C

Gathered among them was the morning
                       Em
Giving all its rest


Em
Thinking the world was mine to be lost in
C

I ran with a freedom and sang in between
    Am
For I had the path of wonder
        B7
There before me


Em     D                     C

I only want to be left to my own ways
Em              D                      C         Bm
The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C

I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C

Gathered among them was the morning

Giving all its rest


(Solo)  Em C Am B7


Em     D                     C

I only want to be left to my own ways
Em              D                      C         Bm
The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C

I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C

Gathered among them was the morning
                       Em
Giving all its rest


       D                     C

I only want to be left to my own ways
Em              D                      C         Bm
The rulers have won leaving all things undone
Em            D                   C

I've stood in awe of the whole creation
Bm                          C

Gathered among them was the morning
                       Em
Giving all its rest

View Just Lyrics...

I have been cruel and kind without knowing
I fell in the silence overwhelmed by these days
For I have been shown dear rulers, ruling all things
Thinking the world was mine to lay hold on
I breathe in the promise of maiden and man
But each have their on illusions to hold onto

I only want to be left to my own ways
The rulers of one leaving all things undone
I stood in the awe of the whole creations
Gathered among them was the morning
Giving all its rays

Thinking the world was mine to be lost in
I ran with freedom and sank in between
For I have the path of wonder
There before me

I only want to be left to my own ways
The rulers of one leaving all things undone
I stood in the awe of the whole creation
Gathered among them was the morning
Giving all its rays

I only want to be left to my own ways
The rulers of one leaving all things undone
I stood in the awe of the whole creation
Gathered among them was the morning
Giving all its rays

I only want to be left to my own ways
The rulers of one leaving all things undone
I stood in the awe of the whole creation
Gathered among them was the morning
Giving all its rays
