INTRO
| G | % | C | G |
 (piano)
| G | % | C | G |
 (piano + guitar)
 
VERSE 1
       G
With a glass inlaid with gemstones
     G
On a pool around the evening
 C
Among the perfumed roses
         G
Wait for her
 
VERSE 2
         G
With the patience of a packhorse
G
Loaded for the mountains
       C
Like a stoic, noble prince
         G
Wait for her
 
VERSE 3
           G
With seven pillows laid out on the stair
    G                                  C
The scent of womens' incense fills the air
             G
Be calm, and wait for her
 
VERSE 4
    G
And do not flush the sparrows 
         G
That are nesting in her braids
     C
All along the barricades
         G      G G/F#
Wait for her
 
CHORUS
Em                 C
  And if she comes soon
        | G | G   G G/F# |
Wait for her
Em                 C
  And if she comes late
|  G  |  %  |
Wait
 
VERSE 5
G
 Let her be still 
     G
As a summer afternoon
  C                     |  G  |
A garden in full bloom
 
VERSE 6
        G
Let her breathe in the air 
        G
That is foreign to her heart
C
 Let her lips part
         G
Wait for her
 
VERSE 7
G
Take her to the balcony
        G
See the moon soaked in milk
         C
Hear the rustle of her silk
         G
Wait for her
 
VERSE 8
      G
Don't let your eyes alight upon 
    G
The twin doves of her breast
C
 Lest they take flight
         G      G G/F#
Wait for her
 
CHORUS
Em                 C
  And if she comes soon
        | G | G   G G/F# |
Wait for her
Em                 C
  And if she comes late
|  G  | D
Wait,   wait
       BREAK
 
VERSE 9
          G
Serve her water before wine
G
Do not touch her hand
         C                         G
Let your fingertips rest at her command
 
VERSE 10
      G
Speak softly as a flute would 
     G
To a fearful violin
        C                 | G   G G/F# |
Breathe out, breathe in
 
 
CHORUS instrumental
| Em | C | G | G   G G/F# |
| Em | C | G | D |
              BREAK
 
[Outro verse]
    G
And as the echo fades
          G
From that final fusillade
  C                       G
Remember the promises you made
