Intro: Eb  Gm  Ab  Eb

Eb
  Be still
                Gm
  And go on to bed
            Ab               Eb
  Nobody knows what lies ahead
Eb
  And life is short
                Gm
  To say the least
                Ab              Eb
  We're in the belly of the beast


        Cm
  Be still
              Ab     
  Wild and young
Eb                            Bb
  Long may your innocence reign
                       Cm
  Like shells on the shore
                             Ab
  And may your limits be unknown
                                Eb
  And may your efforts be your own
                              Bb
  If you ever feel you can't take it anymore


Cm                Ab 
  Don't break character
                Eb      Bb
  You've got a lot of heart
Cm                         Fm
  Is this real or just a dream?
   Ab             Bb  Cm
  Rise up like the sun
   Ab          Bb   Cm   Bb   Ab
  Labor till the work is done


Eb
  Be still
                    Gm
  One day you'll leave
   Ab                       Eb
  Fearlessness on your sleeve
Eb                                             Gm
  When you've come back tell me what did you see
                  Ab                  Eb
  Was there something out there for me?


       Cm
  Be still
               Ab
  Close your eyes
Eb                                Bb
  Soon enough you'll be on your own
                  Cm
  Steady and straight
                                    Ab
  And if they drag you through the mud
                                     Eb
  It doesn't change what's in your blood

  Over chains
Bb
  When they knock you down

 
Cm                Ab 
  Don't break character
                Eb      Bb
  You've got a lot of heart
Cm                         Fm
  Is this real or just a dream?
Eb       Gm
   Be still
Ab       Eb
   Be still
Eb       Gm
   Be still
Ab       Eb
   Be still


Cm                 Ab
  Over rock and chain
                Eb
  Over sunset plain
                  Bb
  Over trap and snare
                      Cm
  When you're in too deep
                     Ab
  In your wildest dream
                     Eb
  In your made up scheme
                       Bb
  When they knock you down
                       Cm
  When they knock you down

 
Cm                Ab 
  Don't break character
                Eb      Bb
  You've got a lot of heart
Cm                         Fm
  Is this real or just a dream?
   Ab             Bb  Cm
  Rise up like the sun
   Ab          Bb   Cm   Bb   Ab
  Labor till the work is done
   Ab             Bb  Cm
  Rise up like the sun
   Ab          Bb   Cm   Bb   Ab
  Labor till the work is done
   Ab             Bb  Cm
  Rise up like the sun
   Ab          Bb   Cm   Bb   Ab
  Labor till the work is done
