** Riff#2 **
C    G               F            C
Cruise... we're both traveling so far
Am          G             F        C
burning our flares like a shooting star
C               G              F            C
Cruise, are you sure that your song will be sung
         Am          G       F    C
and will ring in the ears of everyone

Saving our children, saving our land
Dm            C              G
protecting us from things we cannot understand
Am        G     F          C
power and glory just isn't right
Dm            C              G
i'm sure that you'll help us to see the light
        Am            G       C            F
and the love that you radiate will keep us warm
               C           G
and help us to weather the storm
>>> The rest of the song follows the same pattern as above. No surprises <<<
Cruise... you have taken me in
and just when I've got you under my skin
you start ignoring the fears I have felt
cause you know you can always make my poor heart melt
** Riff #2 **
Please don't take what I'm saying amiss
or miss understand at time such as this
Because if such close friends should ever fall out
what would there be left worth fighting about?
Power and glory just isn't right
I'm sure that you'll help them to see the light
Will you save our children, will you save our land?
...and protect us from all the things that we can't understand?
Power and glory just isn't wrong
who will we turn to when your heart brave falls?
