[Verse]
F
Times were good
                      G     Am
She never thought about the future, she just did what she would
   G       F
Oh but she really cared
                G   Am
About her music, it all seemed so important then


[Chorus]
        D/A
And she dreamed that every time that she performed
G/A A
    Everyone would cry for more
     D/A
That all she had to do was step into the light
G/A  A
 And everyone would start to roar


[Verse]
F
And on the road
                         G      Am
Where all but a few fall by the wayside on the grassier verge
    F
She battled through
                                G        Am
Against the others in her world, and the sleep, and the odds


[Chorus]
    D/A
But now every time that she performed
G/A A 
Oh  everybody cried for more
     D/A
Soon all she had to do was step into the light
G/A  A
 For everyone to start to roar


[Interlude]
    G/A                              D/A
And all the people cried, you're the one we've waited for

[Verse]
       F
Oh but time went by
                       G     Am
It wasn't so easy now, all uphill, and not feeling so strong
    F
Yes times were hard
                                  G    Am
Too much thinking 'bout the future and what people might want


[Chorus]
    D/A
And then there was the time that she performed
G/A  A 
When nobody called for more
    D/A
And soon every time she stepped into the light
G/A  A 
They really let her know the score
        D/A
But she dreamed of the times when she sang all her songs
G/A A 
And everybody cried for more
     D/A
When all she had to do was step into the light
G/A  A 
 For everyone to start to roar


[Interlude]
    G/A                              D/A
And all the people cried, you're the one we've waited for
