Keeping Watch
Margaret Becker

   E   B/D#	 G#m			B2
[  /  /  /  /  ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]
   E   B/D#	 G#m		/E /D#  E
[  /  /  /  /  ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ][ / / / / ]
G#m	      B	        F#		     E
Out over the hillside I see the houselights shine
G#m		   B		  F#
Burning bright to guide somebody home
G#m		B	 F#		E
Here inside my own house I am lighting mine
	G#m		   B		F#
And it burns against the night for You alone

Chorus:
	     E		   F#	   G#m		     B
Until these arms grow too heavy to hold this candle high
	     E		  B/D#	     D		       Bsus B
Until these eyes grow too weary to search the midnight sky
	     E			  F#
Until this heart has stopped its beating
	     G#m		C#7sus C#
Until these dreams have all run dry
       E	 F#	   B
I'll be keeping watch for You

Friends are all around me, there's laughter in my home
But still sometimes I feel so far away
Here inside of my heart I'll always be alone
Until I finally touch Your gentle face

CHORUS

D     A/C#	     B  D	     C#m7		B
Everything inside of me   is missing something without You
D	A/C#		    B		     F#sus	      F#
I don't care if it takes forever, I'll keep waiting here for You
F#sus		  F#
Waiting here for You
E			       B/D#
I don't care how long it takes, I don't care how much it takes
    C#m7    B /G# A2   B/D# C#/E#
I'm waiting here   for You

CHORUS (in F#)
          F#	     G#	     A#m
...I'll be keeping watch for You
       F#	 G#	   
I'll be keeping watch for You
