Came the last night of sadness
           F         Em         Am
And it was clear she couldn't go on
G        Am       G             Am
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
G    Am       G        Am
The candles blew then disappeared
G    Am       G        Am                   G        Am
The curtains flew then he appeared. [Saying don't be afraid]
G       Am          G        Am
Come on baby. [And she had no fear]
        G      Am           G        Am
And she ran to him. [Then they started to fly]
            G          Am                      G           Am
They looked backward & said goodbye. [She had become like they are]
        G         Am            G         Am
She had taken his hand. [She had become like they are]
G       Am             G        Am       G 
Come on baby. [Don't fear the reaper]
