w/Rhy. Figs 1&1A
He seems alone and silent, waiting on his hands
and knees.  Ths chill fo winter's darkness sits
quietly.  
Moved by desire   (pre-chorus) Riff B
and fear, he takes a few steps away
Lifting shadows off a dream once broken (Chorus) Riff C
She can turn a drop of water into an ocean
And she listens.  Whoa, whoa.  (Bridge) Riff D (6x)
Oh, and she listens openly

Riff D
