[Riff 3] x2 w/ lyrics:

My eyes have just been opened and they're opened very wide.
Images around me don't identify inside.

Just one blur I recognize, the one that soothes and feeds.
My way of life is easy, and as simple are my needs. [strike A5]

Yet my eyes are drawn towards the mountain in the east.
Fascinates and capitaves; gives my heart no peace.

[Riff 3] x2 w/ lyrics:

Living one long sunrise, for to me all things are new.
I've never watched the sky grow pale, or strolled through fields of dew.

I do not know of dust to dust, I live from breath to breath.
I live to climb that mountain to the Fountain of Lamneth. [strike A5]

Progression:

[Riff 1] x2

[Riff 1] x2 w/ lyrics:

Look, the mist is rising and the sun is peeking through.
See the steps grow lighter as I reach their final few.

Hear the dancing waters, I must be drawing near.
Feel my heart is pounding with embattled hope and fear. [Strike A5]

[Riff 2] x2

[Riff 2] x2 w/ lyrics:

Now at last I fall before the Fountain of Lamneth.
I thought I would be singing, but I'm tired, out of breath.

D                                 C
Many journeys end here, but the secret's told the same.

D                              C   Fmaj7               G6
Life is just a candle, and a dream...    must give it flame.

[Riff 1] x2

[Riff 1] x2 w/ lyrics:

The key, the end, the answer, stripped of their disguise.
Still it's all confusion and tears spring to my eyes.

Though I've reached a signpost, it's really not the end.
Like Old Sol behind the mountain, I'll be coming up again. [Strike A5]

[Riff 2] x1

[Guitar Solo] in the key of G over: [Riff 2] x2 then [Riff 3] x1

(this is only an approximation; and a BAD one at that; the beginning is
  right, and the ending is right, the rest is ... )

[Above x2 w/ lyrics]:

I'm in motion; I am still.
I am crying; I am still.
I'm together; I'm apart.
I'm forever at the start.

          D
Still, I am.
