[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)]



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
