Songs - Sounds & Lyrics
        
        C                                  Am
Verse        I just can't imagine the courage it took
              F                               G
        To keep on seeking the light.
        C                                            Am
        And finally it seems that the struggle was lost -
                      Fmaj7                 G
        Perhaps you gave up the fight?
        Em                                       Am
        And nobody stands here in judgement,
                          F                     C                G
        Though we question ourselves in the end
           Em                         Am
        If maybe a deed or a word left unsaid
                           F              C              G         G7
        Could have saved the life of our friend.

                F                                  C
    Refrain        You finally danced with the angel of death,
                            Am                                          F
        When he knocked and he found you alone.
                Dm           G7               C             F
        And some may fear that my brother is lost,
               C              F               Am7           G7                  F
        But somehow I wonder if maybe he's found his way home.


Verse        When you looked in the mirror, did you ever see
        The beauty we saw in your face?
        You reached out to many and taught them of pride,
        And helped them to take their place.
        But still the shadows pursued you,
        Though your lover stood close by your side,
        And finally love couldn't hold you
        From the pain that ravaged inside.

Refrain        You finally danced…..

Verse        I know that you faithfully followed your God;
        You tried to walk in God's ways;
        Though often the comfort of peace was denied,
        You clung there day by day.
        I hope that I will be forgiven
        If I rage at the loss of a friend,
        And I trust that the love that is greatest of all
        Will embrace us all in the end.

    Refrain        You finally danced with the angel of death,
        When he knocked and he found you alone.
        And some may fear that my brother is lost,
        But somehow I'm sure that he's finally found his way home.
