Verse 1

    G7/C C   Cdim7     G7/C  C  G7/C  C   
Why  do  we  never  get  an  answer
G7/C  C      Cdim7(VIII) G9/C    C    C
When  we're  knocking  at  the  door
         Cdim7       G7/C   C   G7/C   C
With  a  thousand  million  questions
G7/C C Cdim7       G9/C       C    C
About  hate  and  death  and  war?
                  Cdim7        G7/C C     G7/C  C
'Cause  when  we  stop  and  look  around  us
G7/C   C   Cdim7        G9/C  C    C
There  is  nothing  that  we  need
       Cdim7       G7/C C G7/C C
In  a  world  of  persecution
G7/C  C   Cdim7(VIII) G9/C  C
That  is  burning  in  its  greed

| C                        | 


             Cdim7    G7/C   C   G7/C   C
Why  do  we  never  get  an  answer
G7/C     C   Cdim7       G9/C   C    C
When  we're  knocking  at  the  door?
              Cdim7         G7/C    C 
Because  the  truth  is  hard  to  swallow
        G7/C  C    Cdim7        G9/C  C
That's  what  the  war  of  love  is  for

Bridge

    G7sus4/D  C/E  F       C/E
It's  not  the  way  that  you  say  it
      C      G7sus4/D             C
When  you  do  those  things  to  me
    G7sus4/D  C/E   F            C/E
It's  more  the  way  that  you  mean  it
      C         G7sus4/D         C(nh)
When  you  tell  me  what  will  be
    G7sus4/D        F             C/E
And  when  you  stop  and  think  about  it
C         G7sus4/D   C
You  won't  believe  it's  true
   G7sus4/D C/E     F         C/E
That  all  the  love  you've  been  giving
 C      G7sus4/D            C(nh)
Has  all  been  meant  for  you
    C6sus4 C5 G   G7                          C  C6sus4  C  C6sus4  C
I'm  looking  for  someone  to  change  my  life
              G7                         C
I'm  looking  for  a  miracle  in  my  life
         G7sus4/D C/E F  Fadd2
And  if  you  could  see
             C/E G7sus4/D C
What  it's  done  to  me
                   G
Lose  the  love  I  knew
         G7       G6  C   C(nh)
And  safely  leave  here  through
  G7sus4/D C/E  F          C/E
Between  the  silence  of  the  mountains
      C       G7sus4/D       C
And  the  crashing  of  the  sea
  G7sus4/D   C/E     F     C/E
There  lies  a  land  I  once  lived  in
       C        G7sus4/D         C
And  she's  waiting  there  for  me
  G7sus4/D C/E     F    C/E
But  in  the  gray  of  the  morning
C     G7sus4/D        C
My  mind  becomes  confused
 G7sus4/D C/E      F         C/E
Between  the  dead  and  the  sleeping
     C        G7sus4/D         C
And  the  road  that  I  must  choose
   G7sus4/D C/E C G7                          C  C6sus4  C  C6sus4  C
I'm  looking  for  someone  to  change  my  life
              G7                         C
I'm  looking  for  a  miracle  in  my  life
       G7sus4/D C/E F     Fadd2
And  if  you  could  see
                      C    G
What  it's  done  to  me
                      C
To  lose  the  love  I  knew
          G7sus4/D C/E F
It  safely  lead  me  to
                  C/E G7sus4/D  C
The  land  that  I  once  knew
                           G
A-learn  as  we  grow  old
                            C(nh)
The  secrets  of  our  soul
    G7sus4/D C/E F         C/E
It's  not  the  way  that  you  say  it
       C      G7sus4/D            C
When  you  do  those  things  to  me
 G7sus4/D    C/E     F             C/E
It's  more  the  way  you  really  mean  it
       C       G7sus4/D          C(nh)
When  you  tell  me  what  will  be
