G |-------0--------0-2-| then go directly to strumming an open Em chord.
Lying here awake again, minutes before dawn
I hear your breathing, your heartbeat is just a song,
Lately I've been feeling less than good,
But seeing things for the first time like I never could,
I've had my head down against the door,
Trying to get to something I couldn't find before,
That special something, that feeds my soul,
C Am (play the Intro riff, then back to Em)
Is a rhythm to live by, a rhythm of hope...
Verse 2, same progression:
Something drives us onward, something gives us strength,
What makes us falter is the questions - we think:
"Who am I to fly so high? What gives me the right,"
"To dream of what could be, keep reaching for the light?"
Chorus, same progression:
And I've been standing in front of that door,
Basing my happiness on what I knew before,
Searching for something that would move my soul,
C G and now on to the solo.....
A rhythm to hold to, a rhythm to live to.....
Solo: Play G, Em, C and change quickly to Am twice. I haven't tabbed out the
solo, as it's played on a lap steel, but it's not too hard to figure out.
Slide guitar would do equally fine. Then end on G.
Final chorus, same progression:
Have you been down like this before?
I guarantee there's something waiting for you, just open that door
A rhythm to live by, that holds your soul,
A rhythm that holds you, a rhythm to live to,
And if there's one thing we all need now,
C Am Play intro 3 times
It's a rhythm to live by, a rhythm of hope.....
End on an Em chord strummed with an upstroke.
