Before the day
(on Silverbeet album)

B            G          E                 D     A
there was a time when water could be turned to wine
not so long ago these were things that made us go
but the time rolls on for those who sit and watch the day
we can't ignore the signs how long is left just who can say

B           A        E        A      D            E
who will believe you now in times to come they'll say
why were they living this way in times to come they'll say
D                     E
we're gonna live this way

B            G          E                 D     A
but the leader speaks why don't they hold their breath
they should take the lead before there's nothing left

B           A        E        A      D            E
who will believe you now in times to come they'll say
why were they living this way in times to come they'll say
D                     E
we're gonna live this way

as the day comes down they sit upon the barren ground
there's so much to lose they didn't know what they had found 

who will believe you now in times to come they'll say
why were they living this way in times to come they'll say
we're gonna live this way

            D         A            E
they gotta give it up before the day
they gotta give it up before it's too late
before the day before it's too late
before the day before it's too late
