“Nothing More”: Lyrics and chords

Tonight on NCIS (one of the very few television shows I can be convinced to watch) I heard this song that I think is a very fitting song for the holidays. I want to be the first to post the lyrics and guitar chords on the Internet. You can hear the song on YouTube here:

“Nothing More” by The Alternate Routes (an American rock band out of Bridgeport, Connecticut formed by Tim Warren and Eric Donnelly in 2002)

Am                       C

To be humble to be kind,

F G7

It is a giving of the peace in your mind,

Am F  C

To a stranger to a friend,

F C G7

To give in such a way that has no end,

C Am

We are love, we are one,

F C G7

we are how we treat each other when the day is done.

C Am

We are peace, we are war,

F G7 C

we are how we treat each other, and nothing more.

AM            B;         C

To be bold, to be brave,

F                   G7

It is a thinking that the heart can still be saved,

Am                         B     C

And the darkness can come quick,

F G7

And the dangers in the anger and the holding on to it.

We are love, we are one,

We are how we treat each other when the day is done.

We are peace, we are war,

We are how we treat each other, and nothing more.

G AM

And tell me what is that you’ll see

F C  G7

A world that’s full of endless possibilities,

AM

And heroes don’t look like they used to,

G7

They look like you do,

We are love, we are one,

We are how we treat each other when the day is done.

We are peace, we are war,

We are how we treat each other, and nothing more.

We are how we treat each other , nothing more.

We are how we treat each other.
