Verse 1:
The n[Am]ight is so w[Em]ild,
And d[F]ownstairs the chi[E]ld is sle[Am]eping,
Her s[Em]pirit is free[F].[E]
For m[Am]ore than an h[Em]our,
I have w[F]alked in the r[E]ain,
I've been w[Am]ondering, w[Em]hat she will be[F].
But w[Dm]here are the heroes?
W[Bb]here are the dreams that I [Am]had, when I was yo[D]ung?
Am I h[F]oping in vain, just to th[C]ink,
She could change anyth[Esus4]ing?[E]
Verse 2:
Well, I'm counting on y[Am]ou.[Em] [F]
I'm co[E]unting on yo[Am]u,
To br[Em]ing that swe[F]et gentlen[E]ess to your w[Am]orld,
And [Em]all that you do[F].[E]
[Am]My gener[Em]ation is l[Dm]osing its w[E]ay.
We don't k[Am]now, what we're l[Em]eaving for y[F]ou.
So [Dm]may there be millions who f[Bb]eel like you do,
Oh, my l[Am]ove.[Em] [F]
There is so [C]mu[G]ch to k[F]now.
There is so [C]fa[G]r to g[F]o.
But you are [C]no[G]t alo[F]ne.
When this is y[C/G]our w[G]orld,
And I'm c[E7]ounting on yo[Am]u.[Em] [F] [Esus4] [E]
Verse 3:
C[Am]ome to me, t[Em]urn to me, g[F]ive me your [E]eyes,
When you s[Am]ee, the m[Em]ysteries of t[F]ime.[E]
H[Am]ere there are th[Em]ose,
Who just l[F]ive in the p[E]ast.
They will n[Am]ever, l[Em]et history l[F]ie.
And this s[Dm]ad little island,
Is br[Bb]eaking my heart with it's d[Am]ark, shades of gr[D]een
And as h[F]ard as I try,
I just c[C]annot see why this should b[Esus4]e.[E]
I'm counting on y[Am]ou.[Em] [F] [E] [Am] [Em] [F] [E]
There is so [C]mu[G]ch to k[F]now.
There is so [C]fa[G]r to g[F]o.
But you are [C]no[G]t alo[F]ne.
When this is y[C/G]our w[G]orld,
And I'm counting on y[C]ou[G].[F]
I'm counting on y[C]ou[G] [F]
I'm counting on y[C]ou[G] [F]
