Like walking into a dream, so unlike what you‘ve seen
Bb                                                              ( F5  G5  G#5 )              
So unsure but it seems, ‘cause we‘ve been waiting for you
Dm                                                            ( F5 G5 G#5 )
Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste
Gm                                                                         
Of your afterlife here so stay, 
                                    ( F5 G5 G#5 G5 F5 D5 )
you‘ll be back here soon anyway

  Dm                   C    Dm                           C
  I see a distant light, but girl this can‘t be right
  Dm                    C                                     Bb
  Such a surreal place to see so how did this come to be
      C            C#
  Arrived too early

  Dm              F                    Bb           C             
    And when I think of all the places I just don‘t belong
  Dm             F                Bb           C
    I‘ve come to grips with life and realize this is going too far

    F               C                                    Dm
*   I don‘t belong here, we gotta move on dear
        Bb                   F                          
    Escape from this afterlife,  
                     C                                Dm
    Cause this time I‘m right to move on and on       
    Bb
    Far away from here

Dm                                                                       ( F5 G5 G#5 )
A place of hope and no pain, perfect skies with no rain
Bb                                                                        ( F5 G5 G#5 )
Can leave this place but refrain, ‘cause we‘ve been waiting for you
Dm                                                            ( F5 G5 G#5 )
Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste

Of your afterlife here so stay, 
                                    ( F5 G5 G#5 G5 F5 D5 )
you‘ll be back here soon anyway

  Dm                                  C
  This peace on earth‘s not right (with my back against the wall)
  Dm                       C
  No pain or sign of time (I‘m much too young to fall)
  Dm                                      C                              Bb
  So out of place don‘t wanna stay, I feel wrong and that‘s my sign
           C          C#
  I‘ve made up my mind

  Dm          F            Bb             C
  Give me your hand but realize I just wanna say goodbye
  Dm           F               Gm        C
  Please understand I have to leave and carry on my own life

              Bb                 F                               C
      This place full of peace and light, and I‘d hope you might
                   Dm              Bb
      Take me back inside when the time is right

 Loved ones back home all crying

‘cause they‘re already missing me
