         C
It's the way that you move
 
It's the way that you smile
          Dm
It's your skin on my skin
 
It's that look in your eye
         C
It's the promise of you
 
In the heat of the night
         Dm 
When you open your door
                                 C
It's the way that you bring me inside
 
 
      G                    Am
I can honestly say, I have never before
      G                     Am
Had a feeling so good in my heart

It's the rhythm of you
 
With your hips on my hips
         Dm
It's the things that you do
 
With your mouth and your lips
      C
The caress of your hair
 
And your sensual kiss
         Dm
It's the way that we share
                              C
In the moment that goes on forever
 
 
        G                      Am
When we finally fall from this heaven I feel
     G                         Am
I am lost in the light of your heart
         G                       C           F
Oh sweet angel, it's shining for you and for me

This is love (this is love)
        C  G          F

I'm in your world

03. This Weight on Me 4:04
Tabbed by: Gunter Kohl


Intro: Em7 - A - Em7 - A - Em7
 
                Em7                         A             Em7
Some are talking of revolution, they've got guns and they got cash,
          Am7                                   Em7
But nobody knows, nobody gives a damn;
                                            A   Em7
So they call in the television who are happy to oblige,
               C                                        Em
And this nothing story's on the news tonight,

   D       G
I don't need this information,
            A7
I don't need it anymore,
            C            D             Em7
I don't need this weight on me,
            G     
I don't need this situation,
            A7
I have heard it all before,
            C            D            Em7                                     A      Em7
I don't need this weight on me;      a no, no, no, no, a no, no, no, no,

He was good and he was famous and a hero to us all,
And his name was known and loved all over the world,
But the moment he's dead and buried,
They are digging up the dirt,
They've got newsmen looking through his life for mud;

I don't need this information,
I don't need it anymore,
I don't need this weight on me,
I don't need this situation,
I have heard it all before,
I don't need this weight on me; no, no, no, no...

        E                                   F#m7
For once in my life, I'm gonna stand up for truth,
E/G#                        Aadd9
Justice and glory forever,
B         E                                     F#m7
Had enough of the news, I've got media blues,
      E/G#                    Aadd9  B          C
To faking and lying I'm gonna say goodbye
            D                    E
I don't need you in my life.

I don't need, I don't need,
I don't need this weight on me,
I don't need, I don't need,
I don't need this weight on me,

    D     G         
I don't need this information,
    A7   
I don't need it anymore,
            C            D           Em7
I don't need this weight on me,
            G       
I don't need this aggravation,
            A7
I have heard it all before,
            C             D          Em
I don't need this weight on me; no, no, no, no...

05. Oh My Brave Hearts 6:51
Tabbed by: NBA96


Capo 3

Verse 1:
        Am                   C          G      F
Oh my brave hearts, we must leave this land tomorrow.
          F          Em7   F
We can't live here anymore.
            G                               Am7
And in the quiet hours, we talk before the dawn.

Verse 2: 
        Am                    C        G          F
And the old hearts, they are calling from the shadows.
        F      Em7       F
Telling us we must not go, 
           G                              F
Oh but we cannot fight, the power of the gun,
                  G                           F                    G
To take away our land, they take it from our sons, swear it on my hands.

Chorus:
           C                         G
We will return to run here like the wolf,
                      F                         G
And see the hunter's moon and watch our river flow,
                 Am7
It's not gone forever.

Verse 3:
       Am                   C       G        F
Oh my bold hearts, we will go down to the city.
         F       Em7       F
We will live by city light.
            G                             Am7
But in the darkest hour, keep this fire alive.

Verse 4:
          Am                   C        G        F
We will grow strong, we will bring our wealth together.
        F       Em7       F
Never showing what we have,
              G                                       F
And when the time has come, we'll reach out for the gun.
                 G                     F                    G
Taking back our land, take it for our sons, swear it on my hands.

Chorus:
           C                         G
We will return to run here like the wolf,
                      F                         G
And see the hunter's moon and watch our river flow.
           C                       G
We will return to touch the open sky,
                    F                       G
And see the eagle fly and feel the morning rain.
                 Am7  D  Am7  D  Am7  D  F  G  Am7
It's not gone forever...

Tabbed by: NBA96


       F                               Bb               F
I was walking down that road, to the place that was my home,
         Dm            F            C
And the memories of a life go on forever,
            F                                       Bb              F
Here's the village, here's the sea and here's the place where it began,
        Gm7     Am7        Bb       F         C
When I found myself in the arms of Lady Madonna,
            Dm               Bb         F               Bb
And then I listen for those footsteps, coming down the hall,
   C                                Dm
A father to his young boy, who was hurting from a fall,
     Bb                             Dm         C       Bb
You must have heard me crying, you must have dried my tears,
          F                   Dm                   C
But you know, I just can't remember, just can't remember,
     Bb          F    Bb     C           F    Bb
The son and the father, the son and the father,

         F                                Bb               F
Now I'm walking with my boy through the place that is our home,
         Dm              F                  C
And the memories of his life are growing forever,
Bb       F                                   Bb             F
And I'm looking through his eyes at all the wonders of the world,
      Gm7     Am7          Bb        F         C
Then hand in hand we will make this journey together,
             Dm              Bb           F             Bb
And we will talk of men and pirates, and heroes in the dark,
        C                               Dm
I will tell him of the hungers and the mysteries of the heart,
           Bb                             Dm       C       Bb
And I will always hear you crying, I will always dry your tears,
        F         C         Dm               C      
And I pray you'll always remember, always forever
     Bb          F     Bb     C           F     Bb 
The son and the father,  the son and the father,  
     C           F    Bb  Am  Bb      C           F 
The son and the father,          the son and the father...

08. Up Here in Heaven 5:56
Tabbed by: frankowillo


INTRO: C  
 
Up on the hill, I see it begin
                              F
Marking the heroes where they fall
 
In the stone
                                          C
In the stone, the names of those who have gone
 
 
 
And over the river, there is a place
                             F
Where they remember boys and men
 
Widows talk
                                        C
Widows talk of all that they could have been
 
 
PRE-CHORUS:
 
We can hear you
       Bb       F           C
We can hear you whisper our names
 
We can see you
       Bb      F           C
We can see you reading our names
 
 
CHORUS:
           F                  C
Up here in heaven, we stand together
               G                                C
Both the enemy and the friend, 'till the end of time
           F                 C
Up here in heaven, we are forever
                  G                           C
There is only one god up here, for all of the world
 
 
 
What of the children caught in the war?
                               F
How can we tell them what it's for?
 
When they cry
          C
When they cry, are voices heard anymore?
 
 
PRE-CHORUS:
 
Are you listening
        Bb         F          C
Are you listening, men of the war?
 
There is nothing
         Bb      F           C
There is nothing worth dying for
 
 
CHORUS:
           F                  C
Up here in heaven, we stand together
               G                                C
Both the enemy and the friend, 'till the end of time
           F                 C
Up here in heaven, we are forever
                  G                           C
There is only one god up here, for all of the world
         F             C
La la la laa, la la la la la 
         F                C
La la la laa, ooh ooh ooh ooh
         F             C
La la la laa, la la la la la 
                  G                           C

Leaving footprints by the sea,
