D C Bm7 Em7 Am7 Stuff that's pur-er than gold is and clear-er than glass could ever be G/A Am7 G/B C D Em Em/D Can I be with You? C2 G/B C D7sus Can I be with You? G D Em C2 Am7 D7sus D7 [ / / / / ] [ / / / / ] [ / / / / ] [ / / / / ] And everybody all and each, from the day that we are born We have to learn to walk beneath those mercies by which we're drawn And now we wrestle in the dark with these angels that we can't see We will move on although with scars Oh Lord, move inside of me And when my body lies in the ruins of the lies that nearly runied me Will You pick up the pieces that were pure and true And breathe Your life into them and set them free? And when You blast this cosmos to kingdom come When those jagged-edged mountains I love are gone When the sky is crossed with the tears of a thousand falling suns As they crash into the sea Can I be with you? Can I be with you?
