Verse 1
G     Am       Bm      Am
I can feel it, now it's time
G    Am   Bm   Am
Open your eyes
G        Am       Bm       Am
Fears be gone, it won't be long
G          Am     Bm    Am
There's a light in the sky
     C            Bm
It's okay to look outside
    C            D   (Main Riff 4x)
The day it will abide         and watch the sunrise


Verse 2
Sun, it shines on all of us
We are one in it's hand
Come inside and light my room
like the heart of every man
It's okay to look outside
The day it will abide  and watch the sunrise

Absolutely brilliant! Thanks for tabbing this track, it's one of my all-time favorites and I've been scouring the net for years looking for it.
Great Job!!!
