God's Plan

C               Dm7                                                                                                     
The night never looked
   G       C
As dark as this
         Am         
When the world slipped
G            F
Through our fingertips
C          Dm7
I held you close
    G             C
The tears pouring down
     Am            G
With thoughts of him
F
Spinning around
C          Dm7 
A spark of life
         G         C
Like the wind to a flame
Am      G
Who can stand
    F
And who's to blame
C           Dm7
And who are we
        G       C 
When we fail to cope
      Am
In the bad times
   G                 F
Is where we find our hope
Bb           F
We cannot answer
Bb           F
We'll never know
Bb          F
What is the basic question
C         F     Eb
Grows and grows
Bb               F
It's a life long mystery
C             Bb
Buried in the sand
           C
It's all a part
         F
Of God's plan
C           Dm
So hold me tight
             G    C
Through this lullaby
        Am        G
There's always tomorrow
        F
And the answer is life
C           Dm7
And who are we
        G       C 
When we fail to cope
       Am  
In the bad times
   G                 F
Is where we find our hope
Bb           F
We cannot answer
Bb           F
We'll never know
Bb          F
What is the basic question
C         F     Eb
Grows and grows
Bb              F
It's a lifelong mystery
C             Bb
Buried in the sand
           C
It's all a part
         F
Of God's plan
