Dream Theater – The Spirit Carries On

Published

A:
D D/F#

Where did we come from? Why are we here?

G D D/C#

Where do we go when we die?

Bm Bm/A

What lies beyond? What lay before?

E/G# A4 A

Is anything certain in life?

A:
D D/F#
They say life is too short the here and the now,

G D D/C#
and you`re only given one shot.

Bm Bm/A
But could there be more? Have I lived before?

E/G# A4 A
Or could this be all that we`ve got?

B:

Chorus:

G A D D/C# Bm
If I die tomorrow, I`d be all right because I believe

G Em D
that after we`re gone, the spirit carries on

(interlude)

D D9 D4 Em .
D D9 D4 A4 (drums)

A:

D D/F#
I used to be frightened of dying.

G D D/C#
I used to think death was the end.

Bm Bm/A
But that was before, I`m not scared anymore.

E/G# A4 A
I know that my soul will transcend.

A:

D D/F#
I may never find all the answers,

G D D/C#
I may never understand why.

Bm Bm/A
I may never prove what I know to be true,

E/G# A4 A
but I know that I still have to try.

B:

CHORUS:

G A D D/C# Bm
If I died tomorrow I`d be all right because I believe

G Em D D7

that after we`re gone, the spirit carries on

C:

Em D#

Move on, be brave! Don`t weep at my grave!

D E

because I`m no longer here.

G Em Bm
But please never let your memory of me disappear.

Guitar Solo

(Kord Sama)

A:

D D/F#
Safe in the light that surrounds me.

G D D/C#
Free of the fear and the pain.

Bm Bm/A
The question in mind has helped me to find

E/G# A4 A
the meaning in my life again.

A:

D D/F#
Victoria`s real! I finally feel

G D D/C#
at peace with the girl in my dreams.

Bm Bm/A
And now that I`m here, it`s perfectly clear

E/G# A4 A
I`ll find out what all of this means.

B:

Chorus:

G A D D/C# Bm
If I died tomorrow I`d be all right because I believe

G Em D

that after we`re gone, the spirit carries on
