My Goal

Dm intro

C   Dm  x2

C       Am

E       F C

 

Dm  F C           Racing with the Wind with the Clouds right below me.

Dm  F C            Lightning strikes the ground and the Thunder starts a-rolling.  This

Am                      sweet sound fills my ears, I feel it in my Soul.  My

E     F C            journey has begun.  I can't rest 'til I reach my

Dm  F C            Goal.

 

Dm  F C           The Clouds begin to break and a Forest grows below me.

Dm  F C           hese emerald Trees grow tall and they sing a Song of Glory.

Am                      This sweet sound fills my ears, I feel it in my Soul.

E     F C            They're calling me to join them but I can't stop 'til I reach my

Dm  F C            Goal.

 

Dm                      The message came to me as I was basking in the Sun.

Bb                        A million plus were dead, though the war had just begun.

Dm                      When will these humans learn their brothers are their friends.  So I

Bb    F C          left my rays to try to help these people make amends.

 

Dm  F C           The deep green of the Forest quickly fell into the blue.

Dm  F C           The Ocean Waves were stirring white.  The Sea howled its own tune.

Am                      This sweet sound fills my ear, I feel it in my Soul.

E     F C            I'm tempted to dive deep and swim but I won't stop 'til I reach my

Dm  F C            Goal

 

Dm  F C           Smoke rises in the distance.  Fire glows so cold.

Dm  F C           The sights and smells burn deep.  I hear the cries of war.

Am                      This sad sound fills my ears, I feel it in my Soul.

E     F C            The fighting has begun.  I won't rest 'til I reach my

Dm  F C            Goal.

 

Dm                      The cause of war is blind.  Beliefs and borders change.

Bb                       Lust and greed hold tight, like a bird caught in a cage.

Dm                      Unlock this binding door and free your prejudice.

Bb    F C          Acceptance is the key.  Put down your arms.  Unclench your fists.

 

Dm  F C           The ones who heard my plea were the ones who truly Loved Life.

Dm  F C           The rest met with death as the dark was pierced with Sunlight.

Am                      This sweet sight fills my eyes.  I feel it in my Soul.

E     F C            Peace has returned at last.  I finally have fulfilled my

Dm  F C            Goal.
