Blind Guardian


This song has a very big arrangemet with a lot of guitars and stuff
so guess it's impossible for me to get the song all right. There for 
example lot of places were gutars are doubled with a guitar that's a
octave higher/lower, and I also think I've missed some of the harmonies.
The rhtyhm guitars is also hard to hear, so I've written down the chords
so you can play whatever you think it is.

There's a lot of tempo changes here, so pay attention to the timing

h:  hammer-on
p:  pull-off
/:  slide up
\:  slide down
bf: bend a whole step
bh: bend a half step
r:  release the previous bend

VERSE 4

I'm not sure how this is played. I mean it's not too easy to hear what's played.
But I think the chords should be correct.

VERSE 7

Odd verse this one. It's just some "soloing" in the background that's
pretty hard to hear, but I think it should be correct. I also think 
there's a guitar that plays the chords I've notated

Verse 1
	Far, far beyond the island
	We dwelt in shades of twilight
	Through dread and weary days
	Through grief and endless pain

Verse 2
	It lies unknown
	The land of mine
	A hidden gate 
	to save us from the shadow fall

Verse 3
	The lord of water spoke
	In the silence
	Words of wisdom
	I've seen the end of all
	Be aware the storm gets closer

Chorus 1
	Mirror, mirror on the wall
	True hope lies beyond the coast
	You're a damned kind,
	can't you see that the winds will cange
	Mirror, mirror on the wall
	True hope lies beyond the coast
	You're a damned kind,
	can't you see that tomorrow bears insanity   

Verse 4
	Gone's the wisdom of thousand years
	A world in fire and chains and fear
	Leads me to a place so far
	Deep down it lies, my secret vision
	I better keep it safe

Verse 5
	Shall I leave my frieds alone
	Hidden in my twilight hall
	(I) know the world is lost in fire
	Sure there is no way to turn it back
 	 to the old days

Verse 6
	Of bliss and cheerful laughter
	We're lost in barren lands
	Caught in the running flames 
	Alone

Verse 7
	How shall we leave the lost road
	Time's getting short, so follow me
	A leaders task so clearly
	To find the path out of the dark

Chorus 2
	Mirror, mirror on the wall
	True hope lies beyond the coast
	You're a damned kind,
	can't you see that the winds will cange
	Mirror, mirror on the wall
	True hope lies beyond the coast
	You're a damned kind,
	can't you see that the winds will cange

Verse 8
	Even though the storm calmed down
	The bitter end 
	It's just a matter of time

Verse 9
	Shall we dare the dragon
	Mercyless he's poisening our hearts
	...our hearts

Verse 10
	How shall we leave the lost road
	Time's getting short, so follow me
	A leaders task so clearly
	To find the path out of the dark

Chorus 3
	Mirror, mirror on the wall
	True hope lies beyond the coast
	You're a damned kind,
	can't you see that the winds will cange
	Mirror, mirror on the wall
	True hope lies beyond the coast
	You're a damned kind,
	can't you see that the winds will cange
