Wars 03:16
Wars (G Harp) © Lightning Lucas, 2015 G, D, C, G,... C, G, Am, D,... Chorus: (G)Wars are just (D)battles, (C)battles just (G)fights, (C)fights are for (G)sport, and (Am)sports are just (D)wars x2 ... Am, D, G, Em,... Am, D, G, G... ... where the (Am)horrors are (D)real, but (G)just in your (Em)mind, and the (Am)pain that you (D)feel's an e(G)motional (G)kind, that will (G)go away (D)soon, yes (C)soon you'll feel (G)fine, we've a (C)canny a(G)bility to comp(Am)artmental(D)ize, for you'll (G)hate your op(D)ponent, but (C)it's a fine (G)line, you might (C)also be (G)friends and (Am)hang out some(D)times  Chorus  (Am, D, G, Em/(G)) (Am, D, G, Em/(G)) (Am)Wars are just (D)battles could (G)mean that the (Em)wars are com(Am)posed of just (D)battles or (G)it could mean (G)more, that the (G)wars have an (D)end, but there's (C)no end in (G)sight, each (C)war's just a (G)battle, just (Am)one little (D)fight, and (G)hatred breeds (D)hatred each (C)day has a (G)night, but each (C)night has a (G)day so we (Am)wait for the (D)light.  Chorus  (Am, D, G, Em/(G)) (Am, D, G, Em/(G))G, D, C, G,... C, G, Am, D,... So (Am)where does this (D)lead, what do (G)we have in (Em)store, fewer (Am)functional (D)plowshares and (G)more and more (G)swords, and the (G)mine-sweeping (D)teams seem to (C)reap their re(G)wards, let us (C)all walk (G)with them, we must (Am)all walk (D)towards the (G)light at the (D)end of the (C)tunnel is (G)love, we must (C)lay down our (G)weapons so that (Am)we'll rise a(D)bove, for though (G)Wars are just (D)battles and (C)battles just (G)fights, (C)love is just (G)kindness and (Am)kindness just (D)war that is (G)waged without (D)weapons and a(C)ccording to (G)lore can be (C)fought without (G)fighting so (Am)step out the (D)door and do (G)something a(D)bout the in(C)justice you (G)see, for (C)justice is (G)love, and (Am)love is just (D)peace, not the (G)absence of (D)war but the (C)presence of (G)love, I (C)think that is (G)all, I think (Am)I've said e(D)nough.  (Harp Outro)

Dream 03:57
Dream © Lightning Lucas, 2015 G, D, C almost the whole time (Em instead of G at noted places) (if desired, one can use praise chord(2) variety) I still dream about you, if you can believe it's true x2 after all this time and all this distance I'm still back where we once were. I still dream about you, if you can believe it's true, after all this time and all this distance I'm still back where we once were, When we were where we were when we were young and dumb, and fire filled our lungs each time we breathed in. I still dream about you, if you can believe it's true, I dreams of all the ifs and buts and thens, the what ifs the but stills and and thens, the dreams sort out all sorts of these things, but still I wake up, and then, what if... what if I still dream about you, if you can believe it's true after all this time and all this distance I'm still back where we once were, when we were where we were when we were young and dumb, and fire filled our lungs each time we breathed in, and (Em)each time we breathed out our plans were carried out, for we were gods and we could pay the rent. I still dream about you, if you can believe it's true, yeh-eah, and (Em)each time we breathed out our plans were carried out, for we were gods and we could pay the rent, I dream of how I found you heaven sent, and how I should have told you what you meant... to me, I still dream about you, if you can believe it's true after all this time and all this distance I'm still back where we once were. I still dream about you...
