"WHY I LIVE"

Capo: 1st fret

Intro: D, G, D/F#, Asus4, Bm, G, D, Asus4

Verse 1

(D) Why do these tears run down my cheek?

(G) Why do I feel so uncertain?

(D) Why does tomorrow look so bleak?

Should I (G) open up my curtains,

Or should I (D) go to sleep? (G)

 

I (D) know I was born to live for God,

To (G) be apart and to be call(A)ed out.

(D) Even when there’re times that I feel odd,

The (G) truth is truth and I won’t let g(Asus4)o. (G)

Chorus

(D) No, I won’t li(G)e here and cr(Em)y.

Don't have to have all (G) of the answers,

I (Asus4) just have to tr(Bm)y.

I’ve been cal(G)led,

That’s why I (Em)live.

I’m not much at (G) all,

But please (Asus4) use me all You (D) can.

 

Interlude: D, G, D/F#, Asus4, Bm, G, D, Asus4

Verse 2

(D) So many questions in my head:

What (G) should I say, what should I not (Asus4) say?

(D) I’ve decided I don’t care

What (G) others think of me.

My (D) life is Yours. (G)

 

So (D) take me, Lord, and fill me now.

I (G) have no hope in what I can (Asus4) be.

I’m (D) nothing, really, just a girl.

I (G) give to You my mind and my (Asus4) heart (G) 

Chorus

(D) No, I won’t li(G)e here and cr(Em)y.

Don't have to have all (G) of the answers,

I (Asus4) just have to tr(Bm)y.

I’ve been cal(G)led,

That’s why I (Em)live.

I’m not much at (G) all,

But please (Asus4) use me all You (Bm) can.

Bridge

Take my ha(Em)nd,

Take my he(A)art

Help me to (D) leave all my (A/C#) past far be(Bm)hind

Make me in(Em)to the child of love that I was bo(A)rn to be for this era in  (G) time.

Chorus

(D) No, I won’t li(G)e here and cr(Em)y.

Don't have to have all (G) of the answers,

I (Asus4) just have to tr(Bm)y.

I’ve been cal(G)led,

That’s why I (Em)live.

I’m not much at (G) all,

But please (Asus4) use me all You (D) can.

Repeat Chorus
