PRISM FACE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



         INTRO:  Am7/E - Am6 - Am7 - Dadd9 - D9
                 Am - Dadd9 - D9

                 Am
             I.  have you seen the prism light -

                 every angle another hue,
                 Dadd9
                 one for every point of you?
                 Am
                 hemispheres of day and night,

                 Atlas overseeing
                 Dadd9
                 a world of different meanings?
                 Am/E
                 like a great art,

                 every day starts
                 Dadd9
                 with a new interpretation.
                 Am/E
                 like an ancient

                 sacred doctrine:
                 Dadd9
                 every man a new religion.
                     Am
                 and could I have a prism face,

                 crystal hologram in space?
                 Dadd9
                 you might love me if you saw me...
                        Am7/E   Am6   Am7   Dadd9   D9
                 if you saw me.


  INSTRUMENTAL:  Am - Dadd9  (repeats until second verse)


                     Am
            II.  the face that launched a thousand ships

                 and sent them on a thousand trips -
                 Dadd9
                 how could anybody leave her?
                    Am
                 on muddy shores, the puddle clouds

                 the shifting shallow life of shrouds.
                 Dadd9
                 but all is deep to a believer.
                 Am/E
                 like a great art,

                 every day starts
                 Dadd9
                 with a new interpretation.
                 Am/E
                 like an ancient

                 sacred doctrine:
                 Dadd9
                 every man a new religion.
                     Am
                 and could I have a prism face,

                 crystal hologram in space?
                 Dadd9
                 you might love me if you saw me.
                       Am
                 you'd answer me before I ask

                 what's the meaning of the mask?
                 Dadd9
                 but will you ever really know me?


  INSTRUMENTAL:  Am - Dadd9  (repetition, with ad lib guitar)
