*The Empty Temple* (Lord)

G

Verse:
Am       Amsus2            Amsus4          Am    G
The open doors became that way each day by 7:00 AM.
The vendors stayed the nights preparing the plans left to them.
C                         C7                       Am
The last to leave and the first to arrive, still refining:
C                         Am                         G
Too bad their efforts overwhelmed of desperation and pining

Chorus:
    Em       Am        C
And only the elderly attended
It's just what somebody intended
The spirit went away long ago
G
where were you?

Verse:
Am          Amsus2             Amsus4           Am G
The same mistakes they seem to make today since 1981
The walls are still around but the ground has long become overrun
C               C7              Am
You believe but who believes in you?
C                              Am                      G
The walls are still around but there isn't a soul to renew

Chorus:
    Em       Am        C
And only the elderly attended
It's just what somebody intended
Who will take their place, who will be there
G
tomorrow?

This temple is empty, it once had plenty.
It's not attempting, it isn't tempting. It's unrelenting
It's not exempt, I'm not sure where it went.
An empty vessel - it once was special.
Is it temporal, only temporary?
The hallow is now hollow, it's lost it's halo

G
Go back, go back to the beginning. Go back and start again.
