Intro :  [ Gsus1 (2 bars)   Csus1 (2 bars) ]   -- 2x

   Gsus1
Today I watched in silence as people passed me by, 
      Csus1         
And I strained to see if there was something hidden in their eyes; 
         Am                 Bmsus       Csus
But they all looked back at me as if to say 
               Gsus  Csus
Life just goes on. 
  
    Gsus1     
The old familiar story told in different ways, 
         Csus1
Make the most of your own journey from the cradle to the grave; 
Am                  Bmsus             Csus
Dream your dreams tomorrow because today 
             Gsus1   Dsus  Gsus
Life must go on.  
  

CHORUS: 
            Csus         Dsus                 Emsus
But there’s more to this life than living and dying, 
               Csus              C/Emsus     D            
More than just trying to make it through the day; 
Csus         Dsus                  Emsus          D
More to this life, more than these eyes alone can see, 
            Csus                          Gsus   Csus(to v3,4)
And there’s more than this life alone can be. 
  

Tonight he lies in silence staring into space, 
And looks for ways to make tomorrow better than today, 
But in the morning light it looks the same; 
Life just goes on. 
  
He takes care of his family, he takes care of his work, 
And every Sunday morning he takes his place at the church; 
And somehow he still feels a need to search, 
But life just goes on. 
  
(chorus) 
  
   Am                   Bmsus
So where do we start to find every part 
   F                       Csus
Of what makes this life complete; 
   Am                   Bmsus
If we turn our eyes to Jesus we’ll find 
F                        Csus                     D
Life’s true beginning is there at the cross where He died. 
        Emsus Csus  Dsus
He died to    bring us . . . 

(chorus)

Ok for the most part its a really good tab but instead of Csus2 jus use C2 and...the brigde is the part that needs the most correction and the part that goes "through the day." I have the songbook so i'll try to put some corrections on later


lockespeaker - 2005-10-03

Am7
So where do we start
Bm7 G2
to find every part of
F2 C2
what makes this life complete
Am7 Bm7 G2
if we turn our eyes to Jesus, we'll find
F2 C2 Dsus D2 D (pause)
life's true beginning is there at the cross where He died
D2 D
He died
G Gsus G/B
to bring us...



ya...at the end u could just...not play the chords for "to bring us" and just leave it as a pause

Does anyone have the correct cords to this song?
There is no such cord as Csus1& Gsus1.

I've seen "the walk" video, and this is exactly what he's playing in that video. I'm not so sure it's what he plays on the original recording, but I've performed it in church using these chords, and have played along with the video using these chords -- it sounds great to me. This was one of the very first songs I learned, and this was the transcription that I used.
