Verse 1

EmLying here awake again, minutes before dawn AmI hear your breathing, your heartbeat is just a soEmng, EmLately I've been feeling less than good, AmBut seeing things for the first time like I never couEmld,

Chorus

(If you have two guitars here, one can play arpeggios, and the other can play single power-chords - G5, F5 and A5.) GI've had my head down against the door, FTrying to get to something I couldn't find before, GThat special something, that feeds my soul, FIs a rhythm to live by, a rhythm of Emhope... Em Verse 2, same progression: EmSomething drives us onward, something gives us strength, AmWhat makes us falter is the questions - we think: Em"Who am I to fly so high? What gives me the right," Am"To dream of what could be, keep reaching for the light?" Chorus, same progression: GAnd I've been standing in front of that door, FBasing my happiness on what I knew before, GSearching for something that would move my soul, F Em and now on to the solo..... A rhythm to hold to, a rhythm to live to.....

Solo

Play G, Em, F and change quickly to Am twice. I haven't tabbed out the solo, as it's played on a lap steel, but it's not too hard to figure out. Slide guitar would do equally fine. Then end on G. Final chorus, same progression: GHave you been down like this before? FI guarantee there's something waiting for you, just open that Gdoor GA rhythm to live by, that holds your soul, FA rhythm that holds you, a rhythm to live to, GAnd if there's one thing we all need now, F Em Play intro 3 times It's a rhythm to live by, a rhythm of hope..... End on an Em chord strummed with an upstroke. That's it! May you all find something waiting for you behind that door! - G.
