  Gb         Ebm7
A minute away
           Bbm   Gb/Bb Bbdim Bbm Gb/Bb Bbm Cb

[VERSE 1]
Dm                            Am
   By grief and sorrow one is striving to repay
Dm                         Bb
   Behind the palisade, he lives his destined life
Dm                             Am
   The music and the tears are piercing through the walls
Dm                         Gm7        F/A
   Turns to nightmares and there's no escape at all


[PRE-CHORUS]
Bb
   Oh joyful childhood,
C
   you died so young


[CHORUS]
Fm       Bbm
   Every child follows blind
Ab            C7
   On the jour - ney we call life
Fm            C   Db
   Learning every day
Fm           Bbm
   Given love   or given hate
Ab             C          Fm  Eb       Db
   Determines everybody's fate  in life
                   Fm      Eb
   Be careful what you give


[VERSE 2]
Dm                          Am
   A stranger to love and affection on the run
Dm                             Bb
   In search of shelter in the solitude of sin
Dm                          Am
   A drifter in the dark, a soldier of the pain
Dm                            Gm      Am
   A constant slave under the belt of misery


[PRE-CHORUS]
Bb
   Oh joyful childhood,
C
   you died so young


[FINAL CHORUS]
Fm       Bbm
   Every child follows blind
Ab            C7
   On the jour - ney we call life
Fm            C   Db
   Learning every day
Fm           Bbm
   Given love   or given hate
Ab             C          Fm  Eb       Db
   Determines everybody's fate  in life
                   Bbm7
   Be careful what you give
