Alberto: The Cosmos Rocks12 Sep 2008 09:14

Hello everybody! There is just a few days to the official release date of the new Queen album, but pre-releases start going around and so I started to write down the chords of some songs.
I looked for the lyrics of the new songs on google but there is nothing, and I'm not so good to understand lyrics... If you know where to find them or you want to write them down let me know, else we'll wait for the album release, which hopefully will contain also the official lyrics...
I hope to be able to learn some of them by heart for the concert in Milan...

Some Things That Glitter
Chords by Alberto Orlandini (alberto.email@tiscali.it)
Key of G major


G F C
Once I loved a butterfly
C D G G4 G
Don't wonder how - don't ask me why
G F C G/B Am
But I believed what I've been told
C/D G
All things that glitter can't be gold
F C G G D/F# C/E
Oooh... oh, yeah
C/D G
All things that glitter can't be gold


Those jealous minds conspired to say
'Just let that creature fly away'
How can it be - she has it all
The pride is headed for a fall
Oooh... oh, yeah
All things that glitter can't be gold

Em6 Em5+ Em Em6 Em5+ Em F
Oh Lord, what races we run
A1+ A A7 A1+ A A7 Dm
Seeking our place in the sun
Bbmaj7 Bb Bb2 Bbmaj7/B G7/B C4 C
Reaching and hoping we'll find the right one

Now every day a new joy waits
My butterfly grew golden wings
It seems we find as we grow old
Some things that glitter may be gold
Oooh... oh, yeah...
Some things that glitter may be gold

So let us mind what's there to see
Before our hearts become too cold
In spite of all that we've been told
Some things that glitter may be gold
Oooh... oh, yeah...
Some things that glitter may be gold
Oooh... oh, yeah...
Some things that glitter may be gold


strange chords used:

G/B = x2003x
C/D = xx0010

Em6 = 0x203x
Em5+ = 0x201x

A1+ = x0232x

Bbmaj7/B = x2323x

Time To Shine
Chords by Alberto Orlandini (alberto.email@tiscali.it)

         Bb5         Bb4          Bb5          Bb4
With the sun in your eyes and the wind in your face
   Bb5        Bb4       Bb5    Bb4
To heaven you rise in a holy embrace
     Bb5         Bb4         Bb5         Bb4
Your feet on the ground your head in the clouds
           Bb5       Bb4        Bb5  Bb4    Ab Ab4 Ab Ab4 Ab Ab4 Ab Ab4
And you're wondering if  you're ever coming down

In an istant the mysteries of life will unfold
The myths and the dragons of time will esplode
Here's to a real understanding of truth
For compassion and grace to be given their chance too

              Db Db4 Db Db4 Db Db4 Db Db4
Raise up your mind
             Ab Ab4 Ab
It's time to shine

A moment down through millennium
Unveiling the secrets of song to be sung
Waters of life flowing soft to the touch
Wisdom remembered have we forgotten oh so much

Raise up your mind
It's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Hey, it's time to shine

Let's awaken from barbarity
Into a world of serenità
Beyond the rage of foolish pride
And on to the golden shores of paradise

Raise up your mind
Hey, it's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Hey, it's time to shine
Raise up your mind
Your time to shine
It's time to shine
It's time to shine

Small
Chords by Alberto Orlandini (alberto.email@tiscali.it)


D         Dmaj7           G
I like to sit here in the sunshine
Em                          C        G
The trees in the fields are green sublime
   C         G
Suspended in time
    Am            C        G
And don't it make you feel small?

I like to sit here by the fire's light
The trees in the fields lie bare to the night
The stars burn bright
And don't it make you feel small?

C    Am          Fmaj7          C
Everyone needs a place they can hide
C     Am         Fmaj7        C
Hide away find a space to be alone
C    Am          Fmaj7          C
Everyone needs a place they can hide
C    Am           Fmaj7         C
Everyone needs to find peace sublime

I like to sit here in the Autumn time
The trees in the fields they rustle in the wind
The church bells gently chime
Gentle on your mind
Suspended in time
And don't it make you feel small?

Everyone needs a place they can hide
Everyone need to find peace sublime
Oh peace of mind

Everyone needs a place they can hide
Hide away find a space to be alone

Everyone needs a place they can hide
Hide away find a space to be alone

Everyone needs a place they can hide
Hide away find a space to be alone
Everyone needs a place they can hide

Everyone needs to find, peace sublime
Oh, peace of mind

We Believe
Chords and Tab by Alberto Orlandini (alberto.email@tiscali.it)
Key of E major


E                    A              F#m              E          B4 B
I believe there's no evil out there we didn't have a hand in
E                  A                                  E          B4 B
You believe it's a time for peace and a time for understanding
A                              E
Some of us believe that we are chosen
       A             E                  B
And if God is on our side we'll win the game
    A                                 E
And some of us believe that there's a heaven
         A              E/G#          F#m       E       B4       B
When the trumpets sound       and the judges call  your name

But let's get it straight?


E                      A                   F#m               E         B4 B
I believe there's just once chance in this world to hear our brothers
E                     A             B              E      B4 B
You believe there's a better way to listen to each other
   A                        B      E
We don't get what the other guy is saying
   A                           E    B
We hear the words but we don't understand
   A                             B     C#m    B
So around the world the same old anger raging
       A           E/G#          F#m      E            B
And we all cry for shame and the same old tragedy goes down


A         B/A        A                    B/A
We believe there's a better way to fight
          A                        B       E
There's a way to make our children safe at night
E4      E
Yeah We believe
    A          B/A           A                       B/A
And we believe     there's a war we could be winning
        A                  B     C#m  B A
But the only way to win it is to give
                E
What we need to receive


I believe we need a hero to step boldly from the shadows
You believe there must be someone on the scene that fits the bill
A man or a woman who knows how to say I'm sorry
With courage in his heart to match his creed
A leader who can build a brand new morning
And match the tide of changes
Match the intent with the deed

We believe there's a deed of obligation
To bring reconciliation
To make peace with every nation - in our time
We believe there's not a minute we should be wasting
When the darkness falls it's too late to fix the crime
It's peace that we need
That's what we believe

And the bullets fly in the face of common reason
        E       G#m         F#m    E             B
And the pain we give is the legacy in the end we get


We believe there's a song that's worth the singing
It's a song of truth we're bringing
There's a way to share the Earth with everyone
We believe every creature has to be
Has a right to respect and feeling
To live and breathe and flourish in the sun

That's what we believe

Thanks Alberto!
Are they final version or just beta? I wonder when I can put them into the archive.

6.Alberto 15 Sep 2008 22:19

The first post has no lyrics, but from post 1 to 4 I think you can consider them quite final... possibily I've made some mistakes but I think they can be archived like this for now.

If me or someone else has to make any correction in the future he can always contact you!

Actually the tab archive could be organized like a Wiki... or two sections, a "Community Wiki" which any registered tabber can edit and a "Locked Archive" which only you can edit and which basically is obtained from dumps of the wiki moderated and filtered by the common sense of the admin... but it's just an idea... I know it requires a lot of time and effort to put up such a system so... it works good also like it is now!

Thanks to you for mantaining this great site!

Thanx a lot for the transcriptions . Any chance you could tab out the great solo in Small ?

8.LG 20 Oct 2008 11:12

Archive updated (also with Small solo).

  Tell me something that'll ease the pain
  I am living life in vain
    C             D          Em
  Crying doesn't help me anymore
   
  Tell me something that'll ease my mind
  I am walking the line
  Trying doesn't get me anywhere

G
All the stars are shining bright
 Am
Searching for a guiding light
G                     Am    Am
I wander through the night
  
  Tell me something 'cos I need to know
  Can you teach me how to live
  How to understand, how to love, and how to give

  Anger burns in bitterness and fills me up inside
  Can't face it and there's no place I can hide
  
I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Searching for a guiding light
I wander through the night

Solo: chords as intro (I think:))

  Tell me something 'cos I need to know
  Can you teach me how to live
  How to understand, how to love, and how to give

  Anger burns in bitterness and fills me up inside
  Without your love there's nowhere I can hide
   
I wander through the night
All the stars are shining bright
Searching for a guiding light
I wander through the night

Solo: Am ...to fade
