          G               D              C           Am7

It’s not time to make a change, just re-lax, take it easy,

               G                 Em                Am                D

You’re still young, that’s your fault, there’s so much you have to know,

        G             D           C             Am7

Find a girl, settle down, if you want, you can marry,

        G         Em           Am7   D

Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy

 

 

 

        G               Bm7          C                 Am7         G

I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy to be calm,

              Em                  Am7  D                G            Bm7

When you’ve found something going on,    but take your time, think a lot,

                  C             Am7                 G                Em

Why, think of everything you’ve got, for you will still be here to-morrow,

            D        G  C/G     G   C/G

But your dreams may not

 

 

 

        G             Bm7            C               Am7

How can I try to ex-plain?    When I do , he turns a-way again!

       G                  Em               Am7  D

It’s always been the same,   the same old story,

            G            Bm7           C         Am7

From the moment I could talk, I was ordered to listen,

               G          Em           D     G

Now there’s a way, and I know that I have to go away,

    D     C      G   C/G    G    C/G

I know I have to go

 

 

 

          G              D                C              Am7

It’s not time to make a change, just sit down, take it slowly,

     ( A-way ,        a-way,           a-way )

 

               G                      Em                     Am

You’re still young,    that’s you’re fault       there’s so much

                   ( I—-            —-know—-

 

            D                   G           D            C             Am7

you have to go through, Find a girl,settle down, if you want you can marry,

 I  have to make this—    de-cision—          —a-lone!)

 

         G            Em           Am7   D

Look at me ,    I am old, but I’m happy

          ( No !)

 

 

 

          G           Bm7            C               Am7

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,

      ( Stay ,       stay,         stay )

 

       G                   Em             Am7                 D

It’s hard,      but it’s harder    to ig-nore it!

          ( Why—          —must—        —you go ,and make—

 

                   G           Bm7            C                   Am7

If they were     right, I’d a-gree, but it’s them, they know, not me,

     —this de-cision—-            —-a-lone? )

 

               G          Em           D      G          D      C      G

Now there’s a way, and I know that I have to go away, I know I have to go

I THINK I SEE THE LIGHT

 

A              C           D            F    C          A    C  D  F C

   I used to trust nobody,    trusting even less their words,

A            C             D            F      C       A    C  D  F C

   Until I found somebody,    there was no one I pre-fered ,

A                C             D        F     C     A    C   D   F C

   My heart was made of stone,   I saw only misty grey,

A             C             D                 F    C        A   C  D  F C

   Until you came into my life ,girl, I saw every-one that way

 

Em          D/F#             C/G        F/A   Em              B

   Until I found the one I needed at my side,    I think I would’ve been

   I used to walk alone,   every step would seem the same,

A                 C          D                 F      C       A   C  D  F C

  This world was not my home,   so there was nothing much to gain,

A               C             D                F       C     A    C  D  F C

  Look up, and see the clouds,  look down and see the cold floor,

A            C            D                   F        C     A    C  D  F C

  Until you came into my life, girl, I saw nothing, nothing more

And everything  emptying  in-to  whi—-te

 

   C  C/B   D/A         C   C/B D      C      C/B  D/A

A sim-ple garden with acres of sky, a brown haired dog mouse,

    C    C/B   D     G         C           D            Fadd9  C

If one dropped by, yellow de-lanie would sleep well at night——,

A sad blue eyed drummer re-hearses out-side, a black spi-der dancing

    C     C/B  D    G            C             D      Fadd9  C

on top of his eye, red legged chicken stands ready to strike—-,

                   G     (D)  Esus4   E
