VERES 1
********
Have you ever [Am]been to northpoint
[Dm] To spend your time and [Am]pray
[Dm] The prison walls are [Am]dark and cold and [Dm]grey
The writing on the [Am]wall at northpoint
[Dm] Speaks to a silent [Am]room
[Dm] They shut the bars [Am]down, leave you to the [Dm]gloom
CHORUS
*******
how could we [Bb]get any [C]closer, so high is the wire
and the [F]guards won't listen
[Bb] they won't [C]believe me[Dm]

and then it [Bb]all came [C]back
somewhere far above, has a [F]new day risen
[Bb] way beyond the [C]searchlight, [Dm]comes alive, comes alive
VERSE 2
********
Then on a bright [Am]day at northpoint
[Dm] The gate was open [Am]wide
[Dm] They chanced to look [Am]at what was [Dm]inside

There were a million [Am]stars at northpoint
[Dm] And from the silent [Am]tomb
[Dm] They took it to the [Am]heart,
And left for the [Dm]moon
