(Basic Riff)
He said I must be dreaming 
But I thought I heard the sound
The sound that lovers make 
As they drop down from the window
Quiet as cats, across the courtyard 
Moving from shadow to shadow
Past the guards to the forest 
So quiet in her still reflection
Drawing them down to the lake, to the center
Of her attention
(End of Riff-basic chord sequence)

G         D    C
Steal the moon tonight
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/james/the_lake_crd.html ]
Before the morning
G         D    C
Steal the moon tonight
                     G         D  C     G  D  C     G  D  C
I just never had the strength

G                     D                    C
And on the westbank a boat is being pulled across the sand

As they move so softly 
G              D
They slip into water
C
As they don't break the moon's reflection
G                D
And drift like a cloud 
C
To the center 
                               G  D  
Beneath the moon's attention

C                              G  D
Still drawing
C
Still drawing

G         D    C
Steal the moon tonight

Before the morning
G         D    C
Steal the moon tonight

G         D
I want to drown in your moondream
C
I've seen you rising from shore to shore
G         D
I want to drown in your moondream
C
I've seen you rising 

G         D    C
Steal the moon tonight

G        D          C
Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinneee
G        D          C
Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinneee
G        D          C
Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinneee

G  D  C  (and repeat and fade)
