Lyrics/Chords - The Secret
Am Em
I took a look at my life tonight
Am Em
Stripped away all those dirty ol’ lies
Am Em G F
Then I saw the sunshine in your eyes
I saw the secret tonight
Am Em
I was walkin down the street tonight
Am Em
Wonderin what I’m gonna do with my life
Am Em G F
Then the phone rings and I feel your smile
I saw the secret tonight
Bridge:
Bm D
Your kind words of honesty
A E
Renews my faith in you n me
Bm D
If only you could see
A E
Inside what you do to me
Am Em
Never thought someone so young could see
Am Em
Right thru to the soul of me
Am Em G F
In the end, I don’t know anything…But I…
I saw the secret tonight
Am Em
The angels smile when they hear you sing
Am Em
I don’t know what tomorrow may bring
Am Em
Mona Lisa don’t have anything
G F Am Em
On you….I saw the secret tonight
End on Am
Lyrics - Nice to Know
It’s nice to know
That you are with me
It’s nice to know
That you were there
And all the time you’re thinking of me
It’s nice to know that you still care
It’s nice to know when the chips are down
It’s nice to know…you’re always around
And now you know when you see me
Count on me…I’ll be around
It’s nice to know
That you are with me
It’s nice to know
You were there
And all the time you’re thinking of me
It’s nice to know that you still care

Lyrics/Chords - The Seeker
Capo 2nd fret – drop D tuning – key of E
Do I wanna live
my life over
Do I wanna live
my life sober
Or do I wanna live
like a soldier
No love in my heart
A chip on my shoulder
—– CHORUS ——
D
I am the Seeker
C G
Let me come inside
D
I am the Seeker
C G
I wanna know why
D
Looking for answers
C G
You know what to say
D
I am the Seeker
C G
Let me take you away
———————-
D riff
And to live for myself
does it make me bolder
I wanna live
as if im older
But you make me feel
as if im younger
Thru your eyes I see
My deep and burning hunger
CHORUS
Now im gonna soar
like wind and fire
So I can live
a little bite higher
Now im gonna ride
like earth and water
Take me to the stars
Make me wonder, why
CHORUS

Lyrics - What Will it Take
Looking out my window
As far as the eye can see
I see meadow to cross, mountains to climb
To claim my fortune from sea to sea
My power and money
Is all I crave and need
Irrisistable deals
That will bring you to your knees
—– CHORUS —–
What will it take
To change the world
What will it take
Till we understand we’re all the same
What will it take
To say enough
What will it take
Till we understand it’s all just a crazy game
—————-
It’s hard for me to think
Taking over the world is still a goal
To those of you that want to
You should crawl back into your hole
Feed your children
Take care of their needs
And in the end
All our eyes will finally see
—– CHORUS —–
My god told me to
Kill my brother in his name
He must be right
Cause we don’t look the same
And then I woke up
And realized it’s all a lie
Created by men
With the look of fear in their eyes
—– CHORUS —–
