Dm                 C/D                   Bb/D       C/D
    I can feel it coming in the air to - night, oh, Lord,
Dm                                  C/D              Bb/D      C/D
    And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, Lord,
Dm                   C/D                   Bb/D       C/D       Dm(type2)
    Can you feel it coming in the air to - night? Oh, Lord, oh, Lord!


         Dm                                Am/D
Well, if you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand,
     Bb/D                                          F/D
I've seen your face before, my friend, but I don't know if you know who I am,
     Dm                                    Am/D
Well, I was there, and I saw what you did, saw it with my own two eyes,
           Bb/D                                               F/D
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you've been, it's all been a pack of lies!


Dm                      C/D                   Bb/D       C/D
    And  I can feel it coming in the air to - night, oh, Lord,

     Well, I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, Lord,
Dm                   C/D                   Bb/D       C/D
     I can feel it coming in the air to - night, oh, Lord,
Dm                                     C/D              Bb/D      C/D       Dm(type2)
     Well, I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh, Lord, oh, Lord!


             Dm                                     Am/D
Well, I re - mem - ber... I remember, don't worry!        How could I ever forget?
              ^     ^
         Bb/D                           F/D                 
It's the first time, the last time, we ever met,
       Dm                                                 Am/D
But--- I know the reason why... you keep this silence up,    ...no, you don't fool me,
          Bb/D                                                   F/D
Well, the hurt doesn't show, but the pain still grows, it's no stranger to you and me!

*****************************************************************************
You could use any combination of these alternative chord shapes,
or stick to one set throughout. For variety, I like to use the open 4th string as the drone
for the earlier parts of the song, saving the bottom D until the drum break
and final choruses, hitting the bass note first, then strumming the rest of the chord,
but avoiding the 5th string on the C and Bb chords.

Intro:
Dm(type2)= 000232
Dm     =  xx0765    
C/D    =  xx0553
Bb/D   =  xx0331

Verses & 1st Chorus: 
Dm     =  xx0765    
C/D    =  xx0553
Bb/D   =  xx0331
Am/D   =  xx0210
F/D    =  xx0565

Drum Break:
Dm(type3)= 007765 [On last beat of break, slide down to Dm(type 2) chord] 

3rd & 4th Choruses: 
Dm(type2)=  000231    
C/D      =  0x0010
Bb/D     =  0x0331
