Should I Tell Them


             (Lowest string tuned to D)

Verse 1:
Bm9                   A4
Walking with you is not without hazards
E7                          Gsus2     A4
Tripping's this traveler's curse
Bm9                            A4
The price paid for falling is more than my stumble
      E7                         Gsus2
In a world that is watching and waiting for worse
D                                A5
But I listened when you said to go
       D/F#                    Gsus2
And I set  out in spite of my fears
            D                       A5
I brought truth mixed with my imperfections
            D/F#      G          D          A5
And the question of what to say when I got here

And now that I'm here

          Bm                         G  
Should I tell them that you are the one who has made me
      D                   A
And saved me to set up a home there inside
          Bm                    G 
Should I tell them that I am a perfect example 
    D                     A
Of all you can do with a life?
What should I say to them?
 A                   G    D/F#
What if I'm failing them?
G              A
What should I tell them tonight?

Interlude:   Bm9   A4   D/F#    Gsus2    A4

Verse 2:
Bm9                       A4
Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful to be here
      E7                       Gsus2       A4
With this song to sing and a spotlight on me
     Bm9                    A4
But lately I'm wondering if you are mistaken
     E7                    Gsus2     
If you're seeing all of me there is to see
    D                  A5
But on every face I detect
     D/F#                        Gsus2
The same questions I've posed to you
      D                          A5
Like "Do You speak through the imperfect,
    D/F#      Gsus2           D5           A5      
Or are we too dirty for Your light to get through?"

I want your light to get through


     Em                  D/F#              
Well, they're thirsty but my cup is empty, Lord
G                              A
Come and meet me here in this place
Em                 D/F#
Cause I'm unashamed, but I'm unprepared
G                  A
And I'm just plain afraid

(Chorus 2x)
G              A           D
What should I tell them tonight?
