Em chordEm D chordD G chordG
On the turning away
C chordC Em chordEm
From the pale and downtrodden
D chordD G chordG
And the words they say
C chordC
Which we won't understand
Em chordEm C chordC G chordG
Don't accept that what's happening
Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
Is just a case of others' suffering
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm
Or you'll find that you're joining in
D chordD G chordG
The turning away


Em chordEm D chordD G chordG
It's a sin that somehow
C chordC Em chordEm
Light is changing to shadow
D chordD G chordG
And casting its shroud
C chordC
Over all we have known
Em chordEm C chordC G chordG
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
Driven on by a heart of stone
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm
We could find that we're all alone
D chordD G chordG
In the dream of the proud


Em chordEm D chordD G chordG
On the wings of the night
C chordC Em chordEm
As the daytime is stirring
D chordD G chordG
Where the speechless unite
C chordC
In a silent accord
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm
Using words you will find are strange
G chordG Em chordEm C chordC
And mesmerized as they light the flame
G chordG C chordC
Feel the new wind of change
Em chordEm D chordD G chordG
On the wings of the night



Em chordEm D chordD G chordG
No more turning away
C chordC Em chordEm
From the weak and the weary
D chordD G chordG
No more turning away
C chordC
From the coldness inside
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm
Just a world that we all must share
G chordG Em chordEm C chordC
It's not enough just to stand and stare
G chordG C chordC Em chordEm
Is it only a dream that there'll be
D chordD G chordG
No more turning away
