Bm D Em Verse: Em Bm D Em Take all the Metal and Wood Em Bm D Em Used in the waging war Em Bm D Em And teach the men that make those weapons Em Bm D Em To build shelter for the poor Verse: Em Bm D Em Take all the money we spend Em Bm D Em On the way that we appear Em Bm D Em Find the ones that die of hunger Em Bm D Em And help them to see another year Chorus: Em Bm D Em Before we fade away Em Bm D Em Let's make a better day Em Bm D Em This world will keep on turning Em Bm D -- Em After we are gone... long gone. Solo: Em Bm D Bm Verse - same as other Verses -: There is a forest I loved Where the air was fresh and clean We took the forest for a factory So we could build some more machines Verse - same as other Verses -: When I was young I learned to sing And music blossomed in my soul We took the music from the schools And left the darkest, gaping holes. Chorus: Em Bm D Em Where will our children be? Em Bm D Em If they don't learn to see? Em Bm D Em Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone Bridge: Em Bm When we were young D Em All the world was new Em Bm But soon we found D Em Em The childhood fairytale were never true Verse: Em Bm And how the story ends D Depends on you Em And me Em Bm Where will our children be? D Em If they don't learn to see? Em Bm D Em Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone Outro: Em Bm D Em Before we fade away Em Bm D Em Let's make a better day Em Bm D Em This world will keep on turning After we are gone After you are gone. Em Bm D -- Em After we are gone... long gone.
