Intro: GGCD (4 times)
1) I'm [G]chasing a shadow, I [C]can't see a t[G]hing,
2) There's a fighter inside who will never give up,
1) It's d[C]ipping and diving like a b[G]ird on the wing,
2) We are what we are and it's never enough,
1) And every ti[C]me I get near it just [D]seems to slip away[G];[C] [G]
2) Write the words in the sand that this man will come again;
Ref1:
You may [bm]run from the sea, and the words disappea[C]r,
Oh you may fall to your knees, But the power is here,
to surv[D]ive;
It's shining aga[G]in,[C]
It's shi[D]ning aga[G]in - the spirit of ma[C]n,
It's shining again - the spirit of man;
It's shi[D]ning aga[G]in
3) Ah rem[G]ember the first day of [C]man on the mo[G]on,
4) Oh look back to the future and look down the years,
3) The w[C]hole world was watching, a [G]whole world in tune,
4) It wasn't all battles and bad news and tears,
3) It was h[C]ard to believe he was the s[D]ame as me and y[G]ou;[C] [G]
4) We have brought to this place a desire to have a dream;
Ref2:
We may [bm]reach for the stars, and fall from the [C]sky,
Oh in the darkest hour the spirit of man
comes to [D]life;
It's [D]shining ag[G]ain - the spirit of [C]man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man;
And we wo[G]rk - aha - for the [C]good things that we [D]can have,
Yea we work - aha - for the family and home,
Yea we work - aha - for the D-Mark and the dollar,
Yea we work - aha - for the woman on the phone,
Yea we work - aha - for that moment of elation,
Yea we work - aha - for a chance to get away,
And we work - aha - just to let imagination,
Come in[Eb]side and take me aw[D]ay;
1) stnaza instr.
Ref2:
We may [bm]reach for the stars, and fall from the [C]sky,
Ooh in the darkest hour the spirit of man
comes to l[D]ife;
It's s[D]hining agai[G]n - the spirit of [C]man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man.
