Closer to the heart  Rush

from the album, "A Farewell to Kings"
Written by Lee/Lifeson/Peart/Talbot

And the [A]men who hold high [G]places must [D]be the [G]ones who [A]start
to [A]mold a new re-[G]ality [D]closer [A]to the [G]heart.
[D]Closer [A]to the [G]heart.

The [A]blacksmith and the [G]artist re-[D]flect it [G]in their [A]art.
They [A]forge their crea-[G]tivity [D]closer [A]to the [G]heart.
[D]Closer [A]to the [G]heart.
Phi-[A]losophers and [G]plowmen [D]each must [G]know his [A]part
to [A]sow a new men-[G]tality [D]closer [A]to the [G]heart,  yes.
[D]Closer [A]to the [G]heart.
[D]Yeaaaaa-[A]aaaaah [G]ohhhhh
Woah, [A]you can be the [G]captain and [D]I will [G]draw the [A]chart.
[A]sailing into [G]destiny [D]closer [A]to the [G]heart.
[D]Closer [A]to the [G]heart.
Well, [D]closer [A]to the [G]heart.
[A]Oh [G]yeah
[D]Closer [A]to the [G]heart.
[D]Closer [A]to the [G]heart.
I said [D]closer [A]to the [G]heart.
Well [D]closer [A]to the [G]heart.
Yeah [D]closer [A]to your [G]heart.
[D]Closer [A]to your [G]heart.
Whoa-[D]ooooh ...
