Sleep
I don’t need to sleep
I hide my fist behind me
Dream
I don’t sleep I dream
My conscience lays beside me

If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day
If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day

Speak
I don’t need to speak
You’re satisfied with silence
Scream
I won’t speak I’ll scream
My conscience walks behind me

If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day
If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day

Sleep
And all my energy
I waste on dreams of silence

If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day
If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day

  F#m

Kommentar: Dmaj7 = xx0222, Bm7 = x24232,
           F#m/x = Gitarrer spelar F#m (244222)
           samtidigt som basen spelar tonen efter snedstrecket.
           Spela introriffet under hela refrängen förutom när man
           när man sjunger "today, this day", men i allra sista
refrängvändan
           (den med annan ackordföljd) spelar man detta riff även där och
           ända till slutet.
