In These Times by Joan Armatrading

Intro: 4/4 
|     C    |    G    |    F    |  G  -  C  |

      C
1.  These are the times
      G
    Tears fill the back of your eyes
                   Am           
    These are the times the birds mi-grate
   G              C
    A-cross the skies

     C
2. These are the times
         G
   What hope you had you for-get
                  Am
   These wick-ed times you're bound to feel
        G           C
   All san-i-ty is lost

                  C            Am         G
Chorus: In these times ev'-er-yone needs love
                  C            Am      G
        In these times do you pray to God   
                  C
        In these times ev'-ry-one needs com-fort
                  G
        And would wel-come a hand to hold
            Am                                   F                   C
        Com-pas-sion is the fire that burns the hurt that pains the soul
                       C
        And though my eyes are so pol-lu-ted
                 G
        By the sight of lost de-sires
               F        G       C
        I can see you stand-ing by
        
    C
3. This is my fear
         G
   That dis-tance will come be-tween us
                 Am
   And it could mean noth-ing___ Noth-ing
       G                 C
   To get from here to there

   C
4. We own the world
       G
   And ev'-ry-thing that's in it
                 Am
   Let our love shine like glist'-ning rain-drops
    G             C
   Rest-ing on a rose
   
                  C           Am        G
Chorus: In these times ce-le-brate our love
                   C             Am       G
        In these times let's be thank-ful of
                 C
        All the days we can spend to-ge-ther
                 G
        And I'm hap-py to hold your hand
             Am                                   F              C
        Your pas-sion is the food that feeds the hun-ger in my heart
                    C
        And now my eyes are clear-ly o-pen
                 G
        No more long-ing for the past
               F       G          C
        Now I have you in these times

      C                      Am         G
Chorus: In these times ev'ry-one needs love
                  C            Am      G
        In these times do you pray to God   
                   C
        In these times ev'-ry-one needs com-fort
                  G
        And would wel-come a hand to hold
            Am                                   F                   C
        Com-pas-sion is the fire that burns the hurt that pains the soul
                       C
        And though my eyes are so pol-lu-ted
                 G
        By the sight of lost de-sires
                 F       G          C
        Good to have you in these times...
