Ten years old with thoughts as bold as thoughts can be.

Loving life and becoming wise in simplicity.

Sickness will surely take the mind where minds can't usually go

Come on the amazing journey and learn all you should know.

 

[BRIDGE]

G Dsus4 D Dsus4 D

A vague haze of delirium creeps upon me

G Dsus4 D Dsus4 D

All at once a tall stranger I suddenly see

G Dsus4 D Dsus4 D

He's dressed in a silver-sparkled glittering gown.

G D

And his golden beard flows nearly down to the (ground)

Each sensation makes a note in my symphony.

| G | E5 | A | |

 

[repeat CHORUS]

Sickness will surely take the mind where minds can't usually go

Come on the amazing journey and learn all you should know

 

[repeat BRIDGE]

G Dsus4 D Dsus4 D

His eyes are the eyes that transmit all they know

G Dsus4 D Dsus4 D

Sparkle warm crystalline glances to show

G Dsus4 D Dsus4 D

He is your leader, he is your guide

G D

On the amazing journey together you'll (ride).
