Intro:  Bm7  G  D  A     2x


Verse 1:
D                Am7
Morningís hard, coffeeís cold
G6                            D
Pretending that the day mean more than getting old
D                       Am7
Stale headlines others drenched in pride
G6                            D
Marching to their drums with fear standing beside
           Bm7               G6
But if I close my eyes and throw back my head
       D                           A
I can see his face and I hear the words he said
        Bm7                  G6
And my memories ache and my senses burn
         D                          A
Did he dream too late will we ever learn

Chorus:
D             A
I, I want to testify
                          D
My love still lives and breathes
                          A
And my soul is screaming why
                            D
The thoughts wonít let me sleep
                   A
Donít let hearts break
                        D
And donít let children cry
                     A
Before it getís too late
            Bm7
I want to testify


Verse 2:
I take whatís said as my daily bread
I turn the page and I turn my head
I pick I choose on the evening news
Caused by cause they fight and one by one they loose
Must I live my days in these concrete ways
Will the fre break through this smokey haze
And I swear tonight Iím gonna find that place
Itís not the love that dies but the understanding ways


Chorus:
D             A
I, I want to testify
                          D
My love still lives and breathes
                          A
And my soul is screaming why
                            D
The thoughts wonít let me sleep
                   A
Donít let hearts break
                        D
And donít let children cry
                     A
Before it getís too late
            Bm7
I want to testify


Bridge:
                             G
Rip through the wire that screens in my window
  D                        Bm7
Throw open the shade that covers my mind
     C                   G
Iím going to touch Iíve got to believe
     A
The bell tolls for me


Chorus 2x 
and end.
