Intro:

G   G   G   G/E

G         C        D      G   G      C             G      D
  Every heart has got a story  'bout love holding out a lure
G       C             D         G    G         C       D   D
  Baby, when you've been that lonely, you just want a cure
C           C         D       D     C           C            D       G
  Fool you once, you are forgiven;   fool you twice, you're just a fool
G              C         D           Em   C        C          C          D
  You fear the future's all been written   by the past, and what didn't last

        G           C      D   D    G          C      D         D
All the better to dream of you, the better to be this side of heaven
  G         C          D           Em        C           D      C   C   C   D
Believing again when a dream comes true, the better to dream of you

Every story's got a chapter; that chapter will be defined
By what's before and what comes after; this one is mine
Everything that came before us wore me out and weighed me down
You raised me up like a gospel chorus, rock steady on solid ground

    G           C      D   D    G          C      D         D
The better to dream of you, the better to be this side of heaven
  G         C        D           Em        C           D      F   F   F   F
Believing again some dreams come true, the better to dream of you

C/E        C/E     C/E     C/E    Dsus4    Dsus4       G     G
  Like an old time tent revival, I felt my heart come back alive
C/E  C/E           C/E     C/E   Em          Em      D      D
  No preacher baby, no bible,     just this love to testify

(guitar solo, same chords as one chorus)

Oh, the better to dream of you, the better to be this side of heaven
Believing again some dreams come true, the better to dream of you

The better to dream of you, yeah, stranger things they might have happened
Believing again that dreams come true, the better to dream of you

The better to dream of you, the better to be this side of heaven
Believing again some dreams come true, the better to dream of you
