Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
F# | C# | B

Verse 1:
F#     B       C#     F#
Every night I say a prayer
        D#m         G#m      C#
In the hopes that there's a heaven,
    F#     B       C#      F#
But every day I'm more confused
        D#m        B     C#
As the saints turn into sinners.

         D#m        F#         D#m       G#
All the heroes and legends I knew as a child
      B        F#         C#
Have fallen to idols of clay,
       F#       B       C#     F#
And I feel this empty place inside,
      B        G#m           C#
So afraid that I've lost my faith.

Chorus:
             F#  B              F#  B
Show me the way,   show me the way!
           F#           A#m
Take me tonight to the river
     D#m       C#       G#m  C#
And wash my illusions away.
                     F#   B  F#  B  F#  B  F#  B
Please, show me the way.

Verse 2:
    F#     B      C#       F#
And as I slowly drift to sleep,
       D#m     G#m       C#
For a moment dreams are sacred,
    F#     B          C#          F#
I close my eyes and know there’s peace
      D#m      B           C#
In a world so filled with hatred.

        D#m          F#          D#m         G#
That I wake up each morning and turn on the news
    B          F#        C#
To find we’ve so far to go,
       F#      B      C#    F#
And I keep on hoping for a sign,
      B        G#m            C#
So afraid that I just won’t know.

Chorus:
             F#  B              F#  B
Show me the way,   show me the way!
  F#        A#m          D#m
Bring me tonight to the mountain
     C#         G#m     C#
And take my confusion away!
                 F#   B  F#  B  F#  B  F#  B
And show me the way.

Bridge:
A#                                  D#m
  And if I see a light, should I believe?
                      G#m   C#  C#7
Tell me, how will I know?

Instrumental:
A  B | A  B | A | B
A  B | A  B | C# | B | C# | B
F# | B | F# | B | F#  A#m | D#m  C# | G#m | C#

Chorus:
             F#  B              F#  B
Show me the way,   show me the way!
           F#           A#m
Take me tonight to the river
     D#m       C#       G#m  C#
And wash my illusions away.
             F#  B              F#  B
Show me the way,   show me the way!
               F#             A#m
Give me the strength and the courage,
      D#m             C#            G#m  C#
to believe that I’ll get there someday.
                          F#   B  F#  B  F#  B  F#  B   
And, please, show me the way.

Instrumental:

F#     B       C#     F#
Every night I say a prayer,

In the hopes that there's a heaven...
