Melanie Safka - Racing Heart
 
 
CAPO: 1st Fret
 
 
INTRO:  F Bb F C F    
Be the sky I long to fly through 
                     C Bb    
I'm a song for your breeze to sing
     Dm C Bb    
I'm in this play without a part 
                            C F C F 
And I stand silent with my racing heart
 
 
                     C F    
Beauty cries out to everyone 
             C Bb    
So few ever hear her sing
    Dm C Bb    
We live to play our souls out loud 
                            C F    
Yet we stand silent with a racing heart
 
 
CHORUS 1:
                 C Dm 
It has it's own life, it has it's own sun 
                 Bb C 
It has it's own god, it has it's own gun
                                            F 
It knocks at heaven's door and opens it as well
                  Bb C 
It seeks its own truth, finds its own hell
 
 
CHORUS 2:
                         F Dm Bb 
I'm condemned to wander worlds apart
                       C F Bb 
I stand silent with a racing heart
                     F Dm Bb 
Condemned to wander worlds apart
                        C F Dm Bb F 
I stand silent with my racing heart
 
 
                    C F 
In these places of my longing
           C Bb    
Beyond isolation's door
    Dm C Bb             
In realms of dream I light the spark
                              C F  
My soul shall burn beside my racing heart
 
 
CHORUS 1:
                 C Dm 
It has it's own life, it has it's own sun 
                 Bb C 
It has it's own god, it has it's own gun
                                            F 
It knocks at heaven's door and opens it as well
                  Bb C 
It seeks its own truth, finds its own hell
 
 
CHORUS 2:
                         F Dm Bb 
I'm condemned to wander worlds apart
                         C F Bb 
Standing silent with my racing heart
                     F Dm Bb 
Condemned to wander worlds apart
                       
I stand silent with my racing heart

Condemned to wander worlds apart
                        C Dm Bb C Dm Bb 
I stand silent with my racing heart
