The Spirit Carries On

A
D                     D/F#

Where did we come from? Why are we here?

G                      D               D/C#

Where do we go when we die?

Bm              Bm/A

What lies beyond? What lay before?

E/G#                  A4            A

Is anything certain in life?

A:

They say life is too short the here and the now,

and you’re only given one shot.

But could there be more? Have I lived before?

Or could this be all that we’ve got?

B:

Chorus:

G         A                 D       D/C#        Bm
If I die tomorrow, I’d be all right because I believe

G           Em                 D
that after we’re gone, the spirit carries on

(interlude)

D           D9                   D4               Em .
D           D9                    D4               A4      (drums)

A:

I used to be frightened of dying.

I used to think death was the end.

But that was before, I’m not scared anymore.

I know that my soul will transcend.

A:

I may never find all the answers,

I may never understand why.

I may never prove what I know to be true,

but I know that I still have to try.

B:

CHORUS:

If I died tomorrow I’d be all right because I believe

G          Em                 D           D7

that after we’re gone, the spirit carries on

C:

Em                    D#

Move on, be brave! Don’t weep at my grave!

D                E

because I’m no longer here.

G           Em                      Bm
But please never let your memory of me disappear.

Same chords

A:

Safe in the light that surrounds me.

Free of the fear and the pain.

The question in mind has helped me to find

the meaning in my life again.

A:

Victoria’s real! I finally feel

at peace with the girl in my dreams.

And now that I’m here, it’s perfectly clear

I’ll find out what all of this means.

B:

Chorus:

If I died tomorrow I’d be all right because I believe

G           Em                        D

that after we’re gone, the spirit carries  on
