VERSE 1 (Gabriel)
Am        F     Dm           G
Days have come, winters have gone
       Am           F           Am
and we gambled like siblings in Paradise.
Am         F       Dm          G
I was your knight, holding you tight
       Am         F          Am
as a brother when I saw your crying eyes.
         G          F      E7      Am
Time went by and we had to say goodbye.


PRE-CHORUS 1
D                 Am
Staring up to the clouds above
D                      Am
Children so little and sad.
E          E/G#         Am
Hoping the saints could help one day
G                 C
Lead us together again.
Am          G          F        Dm7             E       | E7  F G
Holding the key to the alley of dreams still in   hands!


CHORUS
C                          G7
Time telling me to say farewell
                              Am         F     C  G
but I know that I would fight hell and I know: We will
C                          G
go for another time we can see,
                          F         G           Am     G
for another time we'll be free, for no more farewell
C                          G7
Time telling me to say farewell
                              Am         F     C  G
but I know that I would fight hell and I know: We will
C                          G
go for another time we can see,
                          F         G           Am
for another time we'll be free, for no more farewell


VERSE 2 (Anna)
Am          F       Dm             G
Stepbrother tell me where have you been
          Am            F          Am
when they brought me to this godforsaken place.
Am          F            Dm       G
Sign of the cross - they took me away
    Am           F            Am
for healing with herbs by the way of grace.
      G            F      E7       Am
Now I wait for the day to feed the flames.


PRE-CHORUS 2 (Gabriel)
D                       Am
I have been caught in a cage of despair.
   D                         Am
My heart as a monk's cell so empty and bare.
    Am      G         F          Dm7      E    | E7  F G
But no holy water can make me forget you again!


CHORUS
C                          G7
Time telling me to say farewell
                              Am         F     C  G
but I know that I would fight hell and I know: We will
C                          G
go for another time we can see,
                          F         G           Am     G
for another time we'll be free, for no more farewell
C                          G7
Time telling me to say farewell
                              Am         F     C  G
but I know that I would fight hell and I know: We will
C                          G
go for another time we can see,
                          F         G           Am
for another time we'll be free, for no more farewell
