[Verse 1]
Em       F          G            Am G
  Just a day just an ordinary day
Em        F          G Am G
  Just trying to get by
Em       F          G            Am
  Just a boy just an ordinary boy
G  Em       F       G
but  he was looking to the sky and
 
 
[Verse 2]
Em     F        G       Am
  As he asked if I would  come
     Em          F     G   Am G
along  I started to realize
Em          F            G
  That everyday he finds just
          Am
what he's looking for
Em           F
  And like a shooting star
G
  he shines and he said
 
 
[Chorus 1]
Em    F   G   Am G
  Take my hand
Em     F     G      Am G
  Live while you can
Em         F         G
  Don't you see your dreams
    Am    Em     F
lie right in the palm
  F
of your hand?
 
 
[Post Chorus]
Em F G Am G Em F G
 
 
[Verse 3]
Em           F
  And as he spoke he
     G              Am G
spoke ordinary words
Em       F           G    Am G
  Though they did not feel
Em    F             G
  For I felt what I had not
     Am G   Em
felt be-fore  And you'd swear
F            G          Am G
  those words could heal   and
 
 
[Verse 4]
Em    F         G    Am
  As I looked up into  those
    Em          F       G    Am G
eyes  his vision borrows mine
Em      F             G
  And I know he's no stranger
    Am         Em         F
For I feel I've  held him for
       G
all of time and he said
 
 
[Chorus 2]
Em    F   G   Am G
  Take my hand
Em     F     G      Am G
  Live while you can
Em         F         G
  Don't you see your dreams
    Am    Em     F
lie right in the palm
  F          Am G
of your hand?
Em      F
  in the palm
  G
of your hand

[Bridge]
C      Dm   G    C
Please come with me
C   Dm   F C
See what I see
C     Dm   G    C
Touch the stars for
C    Dm   F   C
time will not flee
C    Dm   F   C
Time will not flee
C    Dm  G
Can you see?
 
 
[Verse 5]
Em       F            G
  Just a dream just an ordinary
     Am G Em    F        G  Am G
dream       As I wake in bed
Em        F       G            Am
  And the boy that ordinary boy
G Em       F        G     Am G
Or  was it all in my head?
 
 
[Verse 6]
Em         F      G
  Didn't he ask if I
     Am
would  come along?
Em      F          G   Am G
  It all seemed so real
Em         F             G
  But as I looked to the door
      Am      Em         F
I saw that boy  standing there
      G
with a deal and he said
 
 
[Chorus 3]
Em    F   G   Am G
  Take my hand
Em     F     G      Am G
  Live while you can
Em         F         G
  Don't you see your dreams
    Am    Em     F
lie right in the palm
  F          Am G
of your hand?
Em      F
  in the palm
  G
of your hand
Em      F
  in the palm
  G
of your hand

[Outro]
Em       F          G            Am G
  Just a day just an ordinary day
Em        F          G Am G
  Just trying to get by
Em       F          G            Am
  Just a boy just an ordinary boy
G  Em       F       G         C
but  he was looking to the sky
