lyrics

A WORLD AWAY
(Ricardo)
———————————

INTRO
G Cm G Cm

VERSE
G Cm G
You... shine like an evening star
Bm Em Cm
I heard that you’re doing better. Still, you’re a world away

VERSE
G Cm G
So I watch you from afar
Bm Em Am Cm
I know I will reach you on some fortunate day. Still you’re a world away

CHORUS
G D C G
I fly higher than the highest mountain
G D Eb
But only in my dreams
G D C G
So I stare into the dusty air ’til the
Am Cm
End of the day. Still you’re a world away

INTRO
G Cm G Cm
VERSE
G Cm G
I’m ready to trade orange in for blue
Bm Em Am Cm
To feel gravity’s pull! It’s true that I am ready to pay. You’re only a world away

CHORUS
G D C G
I’ll fly higher than the highest mountain
G D Eb
Eyes fixed upon the queen
G D C G
I know that we will be together
Am Cm
One fortunate day. Still you’re a world away

CODA
G D C Bb
G D C Bb
G D C Bb
All of my life I heard the stories and I
G D C Bb
Looked to the stars
G Cm
All of my life I watched you from
G Cm
Mars!
G Cm
Sitting at the foot of the Olympus Mons;
G Cm
By this time tomorrow I’ll be
G Cm
Gone. Pale blue marble with a swirl of white;
G Cm G D C Bb
I’m gonna dream of you tonight!
