Stop the world

(Intro) G#, D#, C#

G#
The T.V. is talking, the telephone's ringing
D#
The lights are all on and the radio's screaming
C# G#
A million distractions are stealing my heart from You
G#
I'm tired and empty, this life is relentless
D#
It weakens my knees and it breaks my defenses
C# G#
It's wearing me down and I'm desperate to hear from You

(Single Strum Chords)
G# G#
Stop the world, I wanna get out
C# C#
I need an escape away from this crowd
D# C# G#
Just to hear You speak to me

(Back to normal pattern)
G#
I need to be still before I make a move
D#
And I need to be humble with nothing to prove
C#
And I need Your Word to show me the truth
G#
I need time, precious time

G#
Stop the world, I wanna get out
C#
I need an escape away from this crowd
D# C# G#
Just to hear You speak to me
G#
Stop the world, I'm ready to listen
C# D#
Show me a sign, just give me a vision of Heaven
C# G#
That I can hold on to
G#
Stop the world, I need some time with You

(Instrumental Bridge) G#, C#, D#, C#, G#

G#
Before I can find my voice
C#
I need to hear Your voice
D# C#
Above all the senseless noise

G#
Stop the world, I wanna get out
C#
I need an escape away from this crowd
D# C#
Just to hear You, I need to hear Your Voice
G#
Stop the world, I'm ready to listen
C# D#
Show me a sign, give me a vision of Heaven
C# G#
That I can hold on to
G#
Stop the world, I need some time with You

(Outro) G#, C#, D#, C#, G#
