The Power of a Moment
by:  Chris Rice (taken from Wow '99)
Copyright 1998 Clumsy Fly Music/Ascap
Tabbed by:  Andy Coleman 

A                                     D (play w/out F# on ist string)
What am I gonna be when I grow up
        E                                                D
and how am I gonna make my mark in history
        A                                                  D
and what are they gonna write about me when I'm gone?
B                              D             
These are the questions that shape the way I think about what matters

          A                                          D
Well I have no guarantee of my next heartbeat
              E                                    D
and my world's too big to make a name for myself.
A                                         D
And what if no one wants to read about me when I'm gone?
           B                D
It seems to me that right now's the only moment that matters...

  D                                       A
You know the number of my days
D                                                   A
so come paint your pictures in the canvas in my head
 D                                           F#m
come write true wisdom on my heart
                            B                          D
and teach me the power of a moment, the power of a moment
the power of a moment--yeah.

A                                                  D
In your kingdom where the least is greatest
 E                                                          D
the weak are given strength and fools can be found wise
A                                            D
Forever brushes up against a moment's time
B                                    D                          
leaving impressions and drawing me into what really matters.

E                                   B
Get so distracted by my bigger seeds
E                                             B
show me the importance of the simple things

like a word or seed, a thorn, a nail
and a cup of cold water...(chorus 2x)

Repeat and fade out on D--A

okay, like on the end of the verse that says "about what matters", you need to go back to B on that one part. thats what he does on the WoW 1999 cd, and if you don't go back to it, it breaks up the natural flow of the song. I would bring the flow of the song into consideration the next time you tab a song. but nice song otherwise.
