Soft Black Stars chords
Antony and The Johnsons *

F Am  G

F      Am       G
Little children snuggle,
F     G          Am
under soft black stars
F          Am     G
And if you look into their eyes,
F    G     Am
soft black stars

C                     Am
Deliver them from the book,
        F              G           
and the letter and the word
    F        Am       G
And let them read the silence,
F         G          Am
bathed in soft black stars

F        Am        G
Let them trace the raindrops,
F     G          Am
under soft black stars
F        Am     G
Let them follow whispers,
F          G       Am
and scare away the night

C                         Am
Let them kiss the feather breath,
   F          G 
of soft black stars
F            Am         G
And let them ride their horses,
F             G            Am
licked by the wind and the snow

    F         Am G
And tip-toe into twilight,
F        G                Am
where we all one day will go
  F           Am    G
Caressed with tenderness,
F           G       Am
and with no fear at all

      C                   Am
Their faces shining river gold,
          F          G 
washed by soft black stars
F                       Am           G
And angels' wings shall soothe their cares,
F           G                   Am
and all the birds shall sing at dawn,
F    Am     G
blessed and wet with joy

C              Am
You and I will meet one day,
          F     G 
under the night sky,
F      G          Am
lit by soft black stars.
