Em          Em/D          Am               C   B      Em
As time goes by, you will see that we're going to be free,

You and me, we'll touch the sky,
           C      B          Em               Em/D
Can't you see in your mind's eye, that we are one,
               Am                C       B     Em
We're all the same, and life is just a simple game?

When this crazy world is free, free from doubt,
              Am              C          B       Em
When it finds out ...exactly what we're meant to be,

Thinking how life could be,
Em           D               C             G    D7  D7sus4 
All of the things that our great men have said-----,
D7 D7sus4   Em                     Em/D
            Be what we want to be, what we deserve to be,
