This is my interpretation of what the chords of this great song.
If anyone knows the meaning of this song please post a message at
alt.music.s-mclachlan  !!please!!

The introduction and verses go like this:


A chord diagramB minorBm  -  -  -
A chord diagramF#m7F#m7  -  -  -
"Under a blackened sky"
A chord diagramAsusAsus  -  -  -
A chord diagramEsusEsus  -  -  -
"Far beyond the glaring street lights"
A chord diagramB minorBm  -  -  -
A chord diagramF#m7F#m7  -  -  -
"Sleeping on empty dreams"
A chord diagramAsusAsus  -  -  -
A chord diagramEsusEsus  -  -  -
"The vultures lie and wait"



The chorus goes like this:

A chord diagramG+G  /  /  /
"When all we wanted  .  .  ."
A chord diagramB minorBm  /  /  /
"Was a dream"
A chord diagramD MajorD  /  /  /
"For heaven to hold that  .  .  ."
A chord diagramG+G  /  /  /
"Precious little thing"
A chord diagramG+G  /  /  /
"With every generation  .  .  ."
A chord diagramB minorBm  /  /  /
"Yields"
A chord diagramD MajorD  /  /  /
"A newborn hope  .  .  ."
A chord diagramA augmentedA  -  -  -
"Unjaded by their years"


The interlude / bridge part is just the verse disorted and with heavy
effects
or someone could transcribe a solo!


And that is about it.  There might be a few mistakes  (A chord diagramEsusEsus could be
Esus7
or Esus/B  and  A chord diagramF#m7F#m7 might be just A chord diagramF# minorF#m) but don't kill me over them
(besides, Sarah McLachlan's fans are 99% nice people!!!)

Also could play the song with a capo on the first fret [Capo I]
(I think how Sarah does it)

Almost there ...
