Van der Graaf Generator - Pilgrims (chords)

A# 	C 	Esus4

A#		Gm7
Sometimes you feel so far away,
A#		Gm7		D5
distance from all the action of the play,
A#		Gm7
unable to grasp signinficance,
A#		Gm7		D5
marking the plot with diffident dismay,
A# 		C		Esus4
standed at centre stage,
G5		F5		D#5		D5
scrabbling through your diary for a lost page: 
A#		C		Esus4
unsure of the dream.


Kicking a stone across the beach,
aching for love and comfort out of reach,
the way ahead seems to be so bleak,
there's no-one with any friendship left to speak 
or show you any relation
between your present and future situations: 
lost to the dream.

A#(no5)	A#m(no5) A#sus2(no5)
Away, away, away: 
F#sus4	G#sus4	A#
look to the future day
A#(no5)	A#m(no5) A#sus2(no5)
for hope, some form of peace 
F#sus4	G#sus4	A#
within the growing storm.

G#		Gm
I climb through the evening,
G#		Gm
alive and believing:
G#		F5
in time we shall all know our 
D#		A#
goals and so finally, home.
G5-G#		Gm
For now all is secret -
G#		Gm
though how could I speak it,
G#		F5	D#
allow me the dream in my eye!
          A#			  G#
I've been waiting for such a long time
	F#5-G#5	G#5-A#
just to see it at last,
	F#5-G#5	G#5-A#
all of the hands tightly clasped,
	F#5-G#5
all of us pilgrims.


Walking in silence down the coast,
merely to journy - here hope is the most;
merely to know there is an end,
all of us, lovers, brothers, sisters, friends
hand in hand.
Shining footprints on the wet sand
lead to the dream.

The time has come, the tide has almost run
and drained the deep: 
I rise from lifelong sleep.

It seems such a long time I've dreamed - 
now, awake, I can see 
we are pilgrims and so must walk this road,
unknown in our purpose, alone, but not worthless,
and home ever calling us on.
We've been waiting here for so long,
all of our hands joined in hope, 
holding the weight on the rope -
all of us pilgrims.
