Intro: G D Em C (x2)

Verse 1:
G
Listen,
D               Em        C
 I can hear a voice,
         G
I need a helping hand,
D                  Em     C
 just to beat the void.
         G
I need a mission,
                    D
a dream to stop me talking to myself
             Em
and now the silence is broken
        C
and my soul is to sell
           G
I need to pick up the pieces,
    D
to scatter to the wind
          Em
hold the city to your ears
             C
and you can hear the wind come in.

Chorus:
         Em               G
But you can?t change the world with a song
         Em            G
and you can?t make it right when it?s wrong.
G                         D                           Em
I cannot stop this music travelling round with me wherever I go,
     C
it?s playing for you.
G                         D                      Em
I cannot stop the voice unravelling round me whatever I do,
     C
it?s talking to you.
G                       D
The world dances to the rhythm of its own
       Em                 C
heart beating for you, however you lose.
G              D
So speak to me
  Em                 C
believe, believe, believe me.

Verse 2:
       G          D                   Em      C
Don?t let it slip, through your fingertips.
      G              D
When there?s a ghost,
                    Em         C
don?t try to reason with it.
                 G
Because now I?m tired, I?m wired,
     D
so I will not miss a thing.
          Em
I rope my words out to dry
          C
and I?ve forgotten what to sing

Chorus:
         Em               G
But you can?t change the world with a song
         Em            G
and you can?t make it right when it?s wrong.
G                         D                           Em
I cannot stop this music travelling round with me wherever I go,
     C
it?s playing for you.
G                         D                      Em

     C
it?s talking to you.
G                       D
The world dances to the rhythm of its own

heart beating for you, however you lose.
G              D
So speak to me
  Em                 C
believe, believe, believe me.

Bridge:
   G                     D
If that?s what it was to you,
     Em                    C
then that?s what it was to me.
   G                     D

then that?s what it was to me.
