    A                E         D                     A  E 
You might believe in heaven, I would not care to say
    A                 E             D                 A     
For every star in heaven, there's a sad soul here today
     D                        Bm
Wake up in the morning with a good face
E                     A 
stare at the moon all day
D                        Bm
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase
     E                E7sus4
does anyone care anyway?
    A                    E
For all the prayers in heaven
   D                   F    A  E  D  E7sus4   A
so much of life's this way

[Chorus:]
     A
     Did we leave our way behind us?
     (A)
     Such a long, long way behind us?
     D
     Who knows when, now who knows where?
     A
     Where the light of day might find us?
     D7               A
     Look for the day.

Take heart, my friend, we love you
though it seems like you're alone
A million lights above you
smile down upon your home
Hurry put your troubles in a suitcase
Come let the new child play
Lonely as a whisper on a star chase
I'm leaving here, I'm gone away
For all the stars in heaven
  D                 F                    A
I would not live, I could not live, this way

     A
     Did we leave our way behind us?
     Such a long, long time behind us?
     D
     Leave it for some hopeless lane
     A
     Such a long, long way
     Such a long, long way
                           A7
     Such a long, long way
     A   D            F                      A
     I'm looking for, still looking for that day
