in Beverly Hills.

or the government.
C        G7
But it's all you need...
Chorus:
      C    G    Am       F
And love will hold us together,
 C          F         Am           F
make us a shelter to weather the storm.
     C    G/B   Am        F
And I'll be my brother's keeper,
       C                 F
so the whole world will know
            G     C
that we're not alone.
Verse 3:
C        G/B           Am    F
    It's waiting for you,
C            G/B        Am    F
    knocking at your door,
C           E/G♯       Am
    in the moment of truth
          F                  C
when your heart hits the floor,
           G7
and you're on your knees...
Bridge:
            C     G
This is the first day
       Am              F
of the rest of your life,
             C     G
this is the first day
       Am             F
of the rest of your life.
       C           E/G♯
'Cause even in the dark
        Am              F
you can still see the light;
                 C      F
it's going to be alright,
                 C      G
it's going to be alright.

It don't have a job
It don't pay all your bills
Won't buy you a home in Beverly Hills
Won't fix your life
In five easy steps
Ain't the law of the land
Or the government
But it's all you need...

And love will hold us together
Make us a shelter to weather the storm
And I’ll be my brother's keeper
So the whole world will know
That we're not alone

It's waiting for you
Knocking at your door
In the moment of truth
When your heart hits the floor
And you're on your knees...

This is the first day
Of the rest of your life
This is the first day
Of the rest of your life
‘Cause even in the dark
You can still see the light
It's going to be alright
It's going to be alright
