Alice In Wonderland


 Db7			Gb

     Db7				    Gb
When Alice has an answer it's a common rationality
    Db7						   Gb
She measures her phrases, tipping the scales of reality
              Db7			 Fb2	    Cb/Eb     Gb
But does she know that it's cold to sing songs to a troubled heart
	 Db7		     Abdim/D
Tho' her aim is sincere she's missing the mark

Chorus:
    Cb	       Cbm6	Gb/Bb		  Cb	  Cbm6	    Gb/Bb
She paints her world in yellow and green, covering over the greys
	Cb	Cbm6	  Gb/Bb		Ab7
'Cause life's demands are hard to understand
    Db7			   Gb
So Alice stays lost in her wonderland

I said - Alice look around you, people are falling to pieces
Yea, even the faithful, the ones who still believe in Jesus
But that doesn't mean they've fallen from grace
But in her landscape, their heartache is so out of place

CHORUS
 Db7   Gb  Db7   Gb
[ 2 ][ 2 ][ 2 ][ 2 ]
		   Db
So can we talk of shoes and of ships?
	Fb2	Cb/Eb	      Gb
Can we talk of cabbages and kings?
	Db7			Abdim/D
And of learning to live with the mystery of things

CHORUS

  Db7		/Eb	   Fb2	     Gb
So Alice stays lost in her Wonderland
