Living In The World
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 Am              G            F                  Am    
Living in this fantasy, working with reality,
                             G                   F                        Am
I have come back here again, to touch the sun and feel the rain,
G                C       C/E      F                                Esus4  
Invitations, conversations, friends to make me strong,
E     Am                          Dm                G                  Am
I've seen that light, and I watch it shine, living in the world;

Well I believe that destiny is written in the darkest sea,
With every movement that we make, and every footstep that we take,
Inspirations, correlations, where we're meant to be,
There's so much more that I want to know, living In The World;

      G                         Am  G
Oh-oh still the hunger, Oh-oh to see it all,
Am  G                                    Fmaj7
Oh-oh and the wonder of the sunlight in the morning,
            Am/E                     E
And the moonlight on the bay,
I'm singing now;

Am          Dm     G           Am
Oh oh oh oh...    oh oh oh oh.
               Dm  G               Am
Oh oh oh oh, living in the world
               Dm  G           Am
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh...
          F - Esus4   E   Am
Living in______ the world.

Don't believe a word you read, and only half of what you see,
'Cos there are those who make it up, just to make that extra buck,
And when they write the poison,they will surely get it back,
And I'm still here, and I'm gonna stay, living in the World;

Oh-oh - In the spotlight, Oh-oh - it can be hard,
Oh-oh - it's a hotlight, when it's shining on the tough,
That's when the tough begin to shine,
I'm singing now;

Oh oh oh oh...oh oh oh oh.
Oh oh oh oh, living in the world,
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh,
Living in... the world;

                     Dm                G                 Am
I've seen the wonder of the forest in the light,
                     Dm           G                  Am
I've seen the miracle of winter birds in flight,
                    Dm                 G                   Am
I've seen the universe come flashing in the night,
          F - Esus4        E 
Living in______ the world;

F                                 C                Am   Dm            G9        C
 And when they call me,   I will be waiting, When it's time to go,
But I'm not ready yet!

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh,
Living in the world,
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh,
Living in the world,
Living in the world,
Living in the world.

Living in, living in, living in the world......
