1st verse: 
Em Em                D D               Em Em                 D D
First time that I saw her she had white doves in her eyes
    Em Em              D D           Am Am         Em Em
She spoke to me but I could not reply, not reply
Em Em        D D          Em Em            D D
She was a stranger I had known for years
    Em Em               D D           Am Am           Em Em
She brought to me so many smiles and tears, smiles and tears

 Em Em               D D                Em Em            D D
Tired maid slowly drifts into the past, into the past
    Em Em                 D D         Am Am            Em Em
And finds a home where all echoes rest, echoes rest
Em Em         D D          Em Em      D D
She softly kissed my mind, my mind, 
    Em Em             D D                Am Am           Em Em
And whispered what will we do with time, do with time

Together like the two  hands of a prayer
                  D D -  C C          D D       D D
Together like the two  hands of a prayer
