22Verse - same as other Verses -:
23There is a forest I loved
24Where the air was fresh and clean
25We took the forest for a factory
26So we could build some more machines
28Verse - same as other Verses -:
29When I was young I learned to sing
30And music blossomed in my soul
31We took the music from the schools
32And left the darkest, gaping holes.
Em55 Bm56 D57 Em58 35Where will our children be?
Em59 Bm60 D61 Em62 36If they don't learn to see?
Em63 Bm64 D65 Em66 37Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone
Em67 Bm68 40When we were young
D69 Em70 41All the world was new
Em71 Bm72 42But soon we found
D73 Em74 Em75 43The childhood fairytale were never true
Em76 Bm77 46And how the story ends
D78 47Depends on you
Em79 48And me
Em80 Bm81 50 Where will our children be?
D82 Em83 51 If they don't learn to see?
Em84 Bm85 D86 Em87 52Millions of voices falling silent til' they're gone
Em88 Bm89 D90 Em91 55 Before we fade away
Em92 Bm93 D94 Em95 56 Let's make a better day
Em96 Bm97 D98 Em99 57 This world will keep on turning
59After we are gone
60After you are gone.
Em100 Bm101 D-- Em102 62 After we are gone... long gone.
