Shine On  Chris Deburgh

  [F]  Shine [C]on, [Bb]brighter than the sun[F],
Bb F g C
Live for every moment, before the moment's gone, We
  [F]  shine [C]on, [Bb]you and me tonight[F],
Bb F g C F
Way across the universe, Burning like a fire in the night;

1)[F] I was looking at a      [a]photograph,
2) There are those who can never cross,

F7/Eb g
1) Taken in a garden long before the war,
2) The space between a father and a son,

1) And out on the la[Bbm]wn,  There were[F]  old men and [a]dogs and little child[d]ren,
2) When they are young, We must say all the words that should be spoken

g F C
1) All of them gone forever;
2) Before they are lost forever;

1)[F] And there were people by the [a]waterside,
2) And I was looking at a photograph,

F7/Eb g
1) Standing in the same place where I am today,
2) Taken from a window way above the world,

1) Nothing  has  chan[Bbm]ged - but you know,
2) And we've got to learn: we must

F a C/D d g F C
1) That time is moving like a river, It can only be love forever;
2) leave here a garden for our children, When we are gone forever;

   [Bb]        [C]   [Bb]       [C]                                                                 
1) Ah-------  Ooh-----|    We
2) Ah-------  Ooh-----|    We

1) Ref as above!
2) Ref as above, fade out and sing those words inbetween:

Leave here a garden for the children,
Leave here a new world,
In the night, in the night,
Burning like a fire in the night.
