Intro -x2-: G  Bm  Em  D  C


G         Bm                  Em             C
When you came to me with your bad dreams and your fears
C         D7            G        D D7
It was easy to see that you'd been crying
G       Bm      Em               C
Seems like everywhere you turn catastrophe it reigns
C         D7       G       D D7
But who really profits from the dying
Em    G          C       F F F F  C C C
I could hold you in my arms
D     D7    D       G        D D7
I could hold you forever
Em    G          C         F F F F  C C C
I could hold you in my arms
D     D7    D               G      D D7
I could hold you in my arms forever


G         Bm           Em             C
When you kissed my lips with my mouth so full of questions
C         D7        G           D D7
It's my worried mind that you quiet
G         Bm                  Em             C
Place your hands on my face close my eyes and say
C         D7               G                     D D7
Love is a poor man's food  don't prophesize
Em    G          C       F F F F  C C C
I could hold you in my arms
D     D7    D    G        D D7
I could hold you forever
Em    G          C         F F F F  C C C
I could hold you in my arms
D     D7    D           G      D D7
I could hold you in my arms forever

Interlude: G  Bm  Em  C

G         Bm       Em             C
So now we see how it is this fist begets the spear
C         D7      G           D D7
Weapons of war symptoms of madness
G         Bm             Em             C
Don't let your eyes refuse to see don't let your ears refuse to hear
C         D7          G                           D D7
Or you ain't  never going to shake this sense of sadness
Em    G          C   F F F F  C C C
I could hold you in my arms
D     D7    D       G      D D7
I could hold you forever
Em    G          C    F F F F  C C C
I could hold you in my arms
D     D7    D          G   D D7
I could hold you in my arms forever

  1. The chords in the chorus are wrong. In the second ‘I can hold you…’ It should be G Bm E F F F F C C C
