                    Question    (Moody Blues)

C  /  G7sus  /  G  /  F  /

 D# /  F /  D# /  D /       G7sus /  C /   Cdim /  G7sus /  C / / /
[                     ](x3)  Aaahhhhhhh   [                         ](x2)

         Cdim  G7sus   C                  Cdim    G7sus    C
Why do we never get an answer, when we're knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions, about hate and death and war
Cause when we stop and look around us, there is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution, that is burning in its greed

 D# /  F /  D# /  D /       G7sus /  C /   Cdim /  G7sus /  C / / /
[                     ](x2)  Aaahhhhhhh   [                         ](x2)

         Cdim  G7sus   C                  Cdim    G7sus    C  /  /
Why do we never get an answer, when we're knocking at the door
Because the truth is hard to swallow, that's what the war of love is for

F  C  /  /  F  C  /  /  F  C  /  /

              F            C              G7sus               C
It's not the way that you say it, when you do those things to me
It's more the way that you mean it, when you tell me what will be
And when you stop and think about it, you won't believe it's true
That all the love you've been giving, has all been meant for you

     F   C   G7                        C       (add f)
I'm looking for, someone to change my life

     F   C   G7                  C                 F
I'm looking for a miracle in my life, and if you could see

                  C                        G                           C
What it's done to me, to lose the love I knew, you'd safely lead me through

             F               C                G7sus            C
Between the silence of the mountains, and the crashing of the sea
There lies a land I once lived in, and she's waiting there for me
But in the grey of the morning, my mind becomes confused
Between the dead and the sleeping, and the road that I must choose

     F   C   G7                        C       (add f)
I'm looking for, someone to change my life

     F   C   G7                  C                 F

                      F                         C
You'd safely lead me to, the land that I once knew

                     G                       C
To learn as we grow old, the secrets of our soul

              F            C              G7sus               C
It's not the way that you say it, when you do those things to me
It's more the way you really mean it, when you tell me what will be

C  /  G7sus  /  G  /  F  /
