How To Play

Capo:1st fret

C
If we can cross at the place that divides us.
Cross the river, the river so wide,
If we can smother the pain that's inside us,
                                 G
Deny the demons that wait by our side,
       F              C
We can find, find the light
 
C
Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon,
We share the comfort of the same stars.
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun,
                                         G
That don't matter, can't you see what we are,
        F              C
What we are, what we become?
 
F/C                   G/C
Keep our sights on the way ahead,
F/D                       G/D
Don't look back, it won't help us now.
C/E              Em          F
  The storm we left so far behind
             C/G                   G/A
Seems a dark memory that starts to fade,
            F/D                          C
But till we see the light we will not be safe.
 
C
We all sink or swim in the same ocean,
Break our skin and we will bleed
Our minutes pass with the same motion,
                                           G
We face the same danger, we share the same needs,
              F             C
We're all the same, you and me.
 
F/C                   G/C
Keep our sights on the way ahead,
F/D                       G/D
Don't look back, that won't help us now.
C/E              Em             F
  Upstream, the river gets too wide
           C/G                     G/A
So we must build that bridge right here,
            F/D                              C
Cause if we wait we will not reach the other side.
 
Solo: C            G  F/G  C
 
F                         G
See under that clear blue sky
             Am                          G
The winds of change are blowing hard and long,
            F                           G               C
And they'll not stop to rest 'cause the change is gonna come
 
[Percussion only until G]
C
Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon,
We share the comfort of the same stars.
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun,
                                         G
That don't matter, can't you see what we are,
        F              C
What we are, what we become?
 
F/C                   G/C
Keep our sights on the way ahead,
F/D                       G/D
Don't look back, it won't help us now.
C/E                   Em             F
  Cause upstream the river gets too wide
                C/G                                 G/A
And if we don't build that bridge right here, right now,
               F/D                        C
You know we'll never ever reach the other side.
 
Solo: C
