Fmaj7
For our children, before its too late.

Verse A
G+D# Em
They will inherit, this small earth.
G+D# Em
Taken from us, just in time.

My kids will, keep the worth.
G+D# Em
To do once, was my mine.

G+/D# Em
So much war, too much hate.

In our lives, in our soul.

In a hundred years, where's our fate?

In that time, what's the toll?
