Lyrics and Chords

Thoughts (When I’m Alone) From the album, ‘Stir into Flame’

That’s exactly what this song is about:- thoughts. . . thoughts about social injustice, and all those less fortunate than us,

and Christian faith. Chris.

Intro: Am . . . .

Am Dm

When I’m alone, and my thoughts are milling round,

G E7 Am

I think of Him, and the love my friends have found.


I think of peace, and of wars that never end,

G E7 Am

and of the suffering, and the pain, I long to end.



How will I know, when He’s right here beside me,

G E7 Am

and His love is shining out and pouring through my soul?


How will I feel, when I can look into the faces of my loved ones,

E7 Am

and knowingly say - that He is real?

I think of prisons, the lonely faces that look out,

into a world full of hatred, greed and doubt.

I see the children, and their starving eyes that gaze

back into mine, where they mirror - only pain.
