Intro: GGCD (4 times)

       G                             C            G
1) I'm chasing a shadow, I           can't see a thing,
2) There's a fighter inside who will never give  up,
         C                         G
1) It's dipping and diving like a bird on the wing,
2) We are what we are and it's     never enough,
               C                         D                 G     C G
1) And every time I get near it just     seems to slip away;
2) Write the words in the sand that this man will come again;


Ref1:
           Bm                                      C
You may    run from the sea, and the words disappear,
Oh you may fall to your knees,    But the power is here,
       D
to survive;
                G                    C
It's shining again,
        D       G                    C
It's shining again - the spirit of man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man;
        D       G
It's shining again

         G                        C            G
3) Ah remember the first day of   man on the moon,
4) Oh look back to the future and look down the years,
        C                          G
3) The whole world was watching, a whole world in tune,
4) It wasn't all battles and       bad news and tears,
           C                          D              G     C G
3) It was hard to believe he was the same as me and you;
4) We have brought to this place a desire to have a dream;

Ref2:
          Bm                                     C
We may    reach for the stars, and fall from the sky,
Oh in the darkest hour the              spirit of man
         D
comes to life;
     D         G                   C
It's shining again - the spirit of man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man;
         G                  C                   D
And we work - aha - for the good things that we can have,
Yea we work - aha - for the family       and    home,
Yea we work - aha - for the D-Mark       and the dollar,
Yea we work - aha - for the woman  on    the    phone,
Yea we work - aha - for that moment       of   elation,
Yea we work - aha - for a chance  to  get       away,
And we work - aha - just to let imagination,
       Eb                 D
Come inside and take me away;

1) stnaza instr.
Ref2:
           Bm                                     C
We may     reach for the stars, and fall from the sky,
Ooh in the darkest hour the             spirit of man
          D
comes to life;
      D          G                 C
It's shining again - the spirit of man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man,
It's shining again - the spirit of man.

(fade out)

the chord C in the refrain could be played:

^0---3----- (it should give an uprising feeling)
|1-3-3-----
|0---------
|2---------
|3---------
