I Will Be The Air (full band version)

from by Alex Vann



This track appeared on Volume 1 as an acoustic and voice version.


I Will Be The Air

I know what I believe
I believe what my eyes see
I see the world is blind
And it worries me

But I will not be chained
To a life that is not mine
My mind will not be caged
By the hands of time

CHORUS When the rain comes pouring down
I’ll lift you up to higher ground
And keep you safe and dry beneath my wings
I believe

Talk to me, I’ll talk to you
When the sun comes shining through
Be my water and I will be the air
That surrounds you

And when the road is long
And all my faith is gone
I will stand and fight
What I believe is wrong

I hold my hands up high
And fall down to my knees
A bullet takes my cares away
And I can’t breathe

M8 I can see the light – can feel the might
Of something stronger

CHORUS (repeat)
..that surrounds you
And all that you can see
And all that you believe
And everywhere you go
And all that you can know

Intrumental interlude : B B+F# B+A B+E

CHORUS (repeat)

Then overlapping vocal:
Chorus lyric + ‘I will not be chained’ verse + I can see the light can feel the might…
Then, ‘Talk to me’ chorus then, VERSE 1 repeat
