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'-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
        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...
