Quiet Revolution
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
                G/B         D/A            G/B
There's a quiet Revolution going on,
           G                D7/A              G
Like a fire in every corner of the world,
        Bm                                                     Em
And friends that you have known for many years,
       C/E                G             D/F#
Are talking with a new light inside,
C/E                  G                      G/D  
Talking with a brightness in their eyes;
 
There are quiet conversations going on,
As people speak about what they have seen,
And everywhere the feeling's getting stronger,
That soon there will be change in our lives,
From a thousand years of looking in the sky,
D                      C              Dsus4 - D                  C          D 
   Something is coming now,______ something is coming now;
 
                 G
You will believe it when,
                  Em
You will believe it,
                Am      G         Am - Em        D7sus4 
When the light comes shining ____ through,
 D7                G
    You will believe it when,
                Em
You will believe it,
                C - G    D7        G
When it's shining down on you;
 
There are quiet celebrations going on,
So many have been waiting for so long,
To see the whole world waking from a dream,
And find a new dimension inside,
See a revelation in our time,
Something is coming now,
Something is coming now.;
 
You will believe it when,
You will believe it,
When the light comes shining through,
You will believe it when,
You will believe it,
When it's shining down on you;
 
                Bb
We must guard against the enemy,
                                                C                                     
They can help us or they can betray us in the night,
                                             Cm
Don't talk, don't talk,but this quiet revolution,
             Ab                                                 D7sus4 - D7 
Can destroy the man of darkness with the light;
 
                 C
You will believe it when,
                  Am
You will believe it,
                F       C       Dm - Am       G

When it's shining down on you;
                F - C   G            C 
When it's shining down on you;

Shining down on you, shining down on you........
