Verse: G C G Z
Like the crashing of a wave on the shores of consciousness,
[G]We're alive and we're awake to the world,
[C]And with the gift of love we're [D]blessed. Cos..
Chorus: D C D C D C G Z
We can be, yes we can be, we can be children of paradise.
[C]Children of [G]paradise.
In the twinkling of an eye or the turning of a page,
Comes the moment when our time has arrived.
We can never be the same.
Chorus (repeat)
Bridge: Bm C G D
And all I know is we're still climbing up that hill
And [Bm]all we [C]need to sustain us is [G]love of love, the [D]light of life,
And the [Em]faith to know we can [A7]heal.... like [C]chil[D7]dren.
Through the violence and the rage, by the grace of love be still.
And the spirit that breaks free from the cage
Is the one they cannot kill.
Chorus: (repeat)
End: ZC G Z G
Children of paradise children of paradise.
