The looming past
(on Fear of god album)

Capo on 2nd fret

A       Bm       G
so the night is down
A              Bm       G
it's time to close our eyes
D        Asus4          G
but when sleep doesn't come
D           Asus4    G
i don't know what to do
D       Em7       G         Asus4
oh Lord grant me sleep tonight yeah 
D       Em7      G       Asus4
i don't want to lie here long
D           Em7       G      Asus4
i hear the sounds of others loving
D         Em7     G
and that's all i hear 
D          Em7     G  
and that's what i fear

as the hours tick by
i'm way past waiting
and it reminds me now
of what i used to know
oh Lord grant me sleep tonight yeah 
i don't want to lie here long
i hear the sounds of others loving
and that's all i hear 
and that's what i fear

        A                              G
and if love is right why does it sound bad? 
D                     A                     Em7               G
it reminds me of the things i had some time ago when love was known

i still keep in touch
with letters from the loved ones
they do too much for me
these memories are dangerous
oh Lord grant me sleep tonight yeah 
i don't want to lie here long
i hear the sounds of others loving
and that's all i hear 
and that's what i fear

    D         Em7     G  
tonight    when you hold me
i know    it's forever
you wouldn't even take the blame
for driving everyone away
and it's all that i hear
and it's too much i fear
and it's all that i hear
and it's too much i fear
