Intro: :|Dadd9 D C CM7 Em|:

D7 Am7 FM7 D Dsus4 D
D7 Am7 FM7 Gsus4 G
Music in the air
Something that we’d like to share
I wonder where it came from

It’s something so sweet
But you know you cannot eat
It’s much too deep so get your head on

:|D A C G|:
Ch I’ve seen the symmetry
Been in the light
I’ve heard the poetry
It smelled divine (alright)

I’ve felt serenity
I know her name
Tasted infinity
On another plane

Imagine in your mind
A feeling of a different kind
You have to find The Answer

Think of love and peace
Just as though your mind’s at ease
Your thoughts will lead and you’ll go under

Repeat Chorus with ‘Shambhala, Shangri-La’ mantra

Am Gsus4 G Fadd9 EbM7 F
M8 Music from afar
Could it be a Shangri-La
You know you are The Answer

Solo C G Bb F C Gsus4 G

Repeat Chorus x2

Coda Dadd9 D C CM7 Em
