Moving Hearts Youtube Video Before The Deluge

(G)Some of them were dreamers, (C) and some of them were fools(G)
who were(Em)making plans and (C)thinking of the future(G),,,,[C],,[G]
With the energy of the innocent, they were (C)gathering their tools(G) they would (em)need to make thir (C)journey back to (G) nature(C),,,, (G)
While the (Em) sand slipped through the (G)opening, and their (C)hands reached for the (G) glden ring, with their (Em) hearts they turned to each (G) other's hears for (D) refuge, (C) (G) (D) in the (Em) troubled years that (C)came before the (G) deluge (C),,,, (G)

Chorus:

(G) Now let the music keep your (G) spirits high....(C),, (G) (C) and
let the buildings keep our (G)children dry (C),,, (G) Let creation reveal
(D)it's secrets, by and by (G),, (C) by and by (G),,,
(C) when the (G) light that's lost with (C) in us reaches the sky
(G),,,, (D)


Some of them knew pleasure, and some of them knew pain,
and for some of them it was only the moment that mattered.
With the brave and crazy wings of youth,
they went flying around in the rain
and their feathers once so fine, grew torn and tattered
And in the end they traded their tired wings,
for the resignation that living brings,
and exchanged love's bright and fragile glow
for the glitter and the rouge, and in a moment they were swept
before the deluge

Some of them were angry at the way the earth was abused
by the men who learned how to forge her beauty into power
And they struggled to protect her from them
Only to be confused, by the magnitude of her fury
In the final hour
And when the sand was gone and the time arrived
In the naked dawn only a few survived
and in attemps to understand a thing so simple and so huge
believed that they were meant to live
after the deluge
