C  G                  F 
Welcome to the human race
C          G                    F 
With it's wars, disease and brutality
C G               F
You with your innocence and grace
C G                          F
With still some pride and dignity
                 C
To a world in decline

   G                     F
Welcome to the special place
C      G                  F
In a heart of stone it's cold and grey
C G               F
You with your angelface
C G         F
Keep the despair at bay and send it away


Cmaj7          E           Am    Dm
Show me the meaning of the world
Cmaj7          E           Am    Dm
Show me the meaning of the world
Cmaj7         E            Am     Dm
'Cause I've heard so much about it
Cmaj7             E Am            Dm
Now, I don't wanna live without it
Cmaj7             E Am            Dm
Now, I don't wanna live without it

Dm7         Em7
Oh, I want love
Dm7         Em7
Oh, I want love
Dm7         Em7     G
Oh, I want love
 

C  G                    F
Welcome here from outer space
C     G               F
The milky way's still in your eyes
C G                    F
You find yourself a hopeless case
C G                     F
When you're seeking perfection on earth
                   C
As some kind of rebirth

Cmaj7          E           Am    Dm
Show me the meaning of the word
Cmaj7          E           Am    Dm
Show me the meaning of the word
Cmaj7         E            Am     Dm
'Cause I've heard so much about it
Cmaj7             E Am            Dm
Don't make me live without it

Dm7         Em7
Oh, I want love
Dm7         Em7
Oh, I want love
Dm7         Em7
Oh, I want love
