Hi hello wake from thy sleep

God has given your soul to keep

all of the power that burns in the flame

ignites the light in a single name

Cmaj7 D    Bm7      Em
Frederick name of care
Cmaj7  D          Bm7            Em
fast asleep in a room somewhere
Cmaj7     D          Bm7 Em
guardian angels line a bed

shed their light on my sleepy head

I am a threshold yearning to sing
Cmaj7                    D            Bm                Em
down with the the dancers having one last fling
Cmaj7            D                         Bm      Em
here’s to the moment when you said hello
Cmaj7             D                Bm            Em
come on my spirit are you ready let’s go

Cmaj7     D                Bm              Em

up         above to the land of love

now       I lay me down to sleep
Cmaj7     D          Bm       Em
pray the Lord my soul to keep
Cmaj7     D      Bm           Em
kiss     to kiss breath to breath
Cmaj7          D              Bm             Em
my soul surrenders astonished to death

Cmaj7     D         Bm        Em
night of wonder for us to keep
Cmaj7     D     Bm             Em
set our sails channel out deep
Cmaj7     D                Bm       Em
after the rapture two hearts meet
Cmaj7     D             Bm      Em
mine entwined in a single beat

Cmaj7 D   Bm           Em
Frederick you’re the one
Cmaj7     D              Bm    Em
as we journey from sun to sun
Cmaj7     D          Bm         Em
all the dreams I waited so long for
Cmaj7     D          Bm        Em
fly        tonight so long so long

Cmaj7     D                Bm              Em
bye         bye             hey              hey
Cmaj7        D             Bm              Em
maybe we will come back some day now
Cmaj7     D            Bm              Em
but tonight on the wings of a dove
Cmaj7     D                Bm       Em
up         above to the land of love






Cmaj7  D      Bm         Em
Frederick      name of care
Cmaj7     D         Bm           Em
high      above in sky that’s clear
Cmaj7     D         Bm              Em
all the things I’ve been dreamin’ of
Cmaj7   D                  Bm         Em
are expressed in this name of love

 

Cmaj7     D                Bm              Em
hi            hi                hey              hey
Cmaj7           D                Bm          Em
maybe I will come back some day now
