LEARN TO BE STILL

[C] another day in [FM7] paradise
[Am] as you stumble to your [G] bed
you'd give anything to silence
voices ringing in your head

 

[Em] you thought you could find [F] happiness
[Em] just over that green [F] hill
[Am] you thought you would be [Em] satisfied
[F] but you never [G] will

 

learn to be [C(openE)]

still [G(open E)-FM7-G(open E)]

[x2]

 

we are like sheep without a shepherd
we don't know how to be alone
so we wander 'round this desert

wind up following the wrong gods home
 

but the flock cries out for another
and they keep answering that bell
one more starry-eyed messiah
meets a violent farewell

 

learn to be still
learn to be still

 

[Em] now the flowers in your [F] garden
[Em] they don't smell so [F] sweet
[Em] maybe you've [Am] forgotten
[F] heaven lying at your [G] feet

 

so many contradictions
in all these messages we send
how do I get out of here
where do I fit in

 

though the world is torn and shaken
even if your heart is breakin'
it's waiting for you to awaken
and someday you will

 

learn to be still
learn to be still
