Em7  C2  Em7  C2
Verse 1:
Em7                           D
  I've been searching for a city
         C2                   Em7
One not built by the hands of man
                                 D
And I've been looking for a country
          C2                    Em7
A better place that I can call home
G                             D
  I've been longing for a kingdom
      A7sus            C2
One I know is sure to come
Em7                        D
  When the rider on the white horse
       C2                  Em7
Comes again for His chosen ones   (to intro)
Verse 2:
Like a stranger in a strange land
I know I'm only passing through
It's so hard not to put my roots down, I'm trying to fix my eyes on You
The pleasures of this world may tempt me
But I've tasted something new
Like a pilgrim I will journey, I know I've set my hope on You
Chorus:
                      G                           D
I'm living in the overlap, I'm living in the balance
         C2               Em7
Between what is and is to come
                  G                        D
I'm living in freedom, but I'm caught in a tension
         C2                 Em7
Between now and the age to come
Bridge:
Em7                                  G
  I don't want silver, don't want gold
A7sus                         C2
  Or all the riches in this world
Em7                G
  Oh lover of my soul
   A7sus
In You are faithfulness and truth
    C2                        C2
And all I need is found in You

I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A CITY
One not built by the hands of man
And I've been looking for a country
A better place that I can call home
I've been longing for a kingdom
One I know is sure to come
When the rider on the white horse
Comes again for his chosen ones

So like a stranger in a strange land
I know I'm only passing through
It's so hard not to put my roots down
I'm trying to fix my eyes on You
The pleasures of this world may tempt me
But I've tasted something new
Like a pilgrim I will journey
I know I've set my hope on You

I'm living in the overlap
I'm living in the balance
Between what is and is to come
I'm living in freedom
But I'm caught in a tension
Between now and the age to come


I don't want silver
Don't want gold
Or all the riches in this world
Oh lover of my soul
In You are faithfulness and truth
And all I need is found in You
