The light's shining through on you.

It's the morning and just we two.
G
I'll stay with you darling now,
I'll stay with you till my seas are dried up.

3. WORLD OF PAIN  by Gail Collins and Felix Pappalardi

F          A      Dm  Dm/C   G
Outside my window is a tree.
F          A      Dm  Dm/C   G
Outside my window is a tree.
               B
There only for me.
       D             C#          F#
And it stands in the gray of the city,
            Bm           E        C#
No time for pity for the tree or me.

  A     D             A
  There is a world of pain
  D              A
  In the falling rain
  D
  Around me.

F          A      Dm  Dm/C   G
Is there a reason for today?
F          A      Dm  Dm/C   G
Is there a reason for today?
         B  
Do you remember?
       D             C#          F#
I can hear all the cries of the city,
            Bm           E        C#
No time for pity for a growing tree.

                G     C  G                      C G
Don't take the wrong direction passing through
            G     C  G                      C G
Instead of deep reflection of what's true,
            G  C  G                               C G
For it's a combination of judgments made by you

You must be enterprising in your way,
For you will hear no laughter, nor see the sun;
Life would be one disaster all the way through.

D5                     D/C           D/B            D/Bb
You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
D5                     D/C           D/B            D/Bb
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

(guitar echoes bass)
        D5            D/C           D/B                  D/Bb
And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
        D5                 D/C           D/B            D/Bb
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
        D5              D/C             D/B            D/Bb
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
        D5                     D/C          D/B            D/Bb
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.

     D5               D/C           D/B               D/Bb
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body,
 D5                D/C           D/B             D/Bb
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind.
