D Am7Morningís hard, coffeeís cold
G6 DPretending that the day mean more than getting old
D Am7Stale headlines others drenched in pride
G6 DMarching to their drums with fear standing beside
Bm7 G6But if I close my eyes and throw back my head
D AI can see his face and I hear the words he said
Bm7 G6And my memories ache and my senses burn
D ADid he dream too late will we ever learn
Chorus:
D AI, I want to testify
DMy love still lives and breathes
AAnd my soul is screaming why

ABefore it getís too late
Bm7I 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 AI, I want to testify

AAnd my soul is screaming why
DThe thoughts wonít let me sleep
ADonít let hearts break
DAnd donít let children cry
ABefore it getís too late
Bm7I want to testify
Bridge:
GRip through the wire that screens in my window
D Bm7Throw open the shade that covers my mind
C GIím going to touch Iíve got to believe
AThe bell tolls for me
