Day after day (The show must go on)    (video)

 

      G                             Em                            G

1. Gaze at the sky and picture a memory of days in your life,

              Em                                  C                             Am                 G

    you knew what it meant to be happy and free, with time on your side.

           G                                      Em                                  G

    Remember your daddy, when no one was wiser, your ma used to say

           Em                                     C                            Am                G

    that you would go further than he ever could, with time on your side.

 

      Bm                                C

    Think of a boy with the stars in his eye,

    Bm                                      C

    longing to reach them, but frightened to try,

    Bm        C            Am            D

    sadly, you’d say, someday, someday.

 

            G                           Em                             G

2. But day after day, the show must go on, and time slipped away,

       Em                                    C                                Am                    G

    before you could build any castles in Spain, the chance had gone by.

              G                           Em                           G

    With nothing to say, and no one to say it to, nothing has changed,

                Em                          C                                Am                     G

    you’ve still got it all to do, surely you know, the chance has gone by.

 

      Bm                                C

    Think of a boy with the stars in his eye,

    Bm                                      C

    longing to reach them, but frightened to try,

    Bm        C            Am            D

    sadly, you’d say, someday, someday.

 

             G                          Em                                    G

3. But day after day, the show must go on, and you gaze at the sky,

            Em                            C                              Am                 G

    and picture a memory of days in your life, with time on your side.

             C                  G             C                   G

    With time on your side, with time on your side

            C                   G

    with time on your side ...
