NO MORE DRIFTING BY
by Michael Engelbrecht – 10th July 2005
(Capo on fret #5__ D -> G)

(STYLE 1)
____ D__________________________ Dsus
The days roll past as I’m just drifting through life
____ D____________________________Dsus
Successes and failures sometimes striving sometimes drifting
____Em____________________________A
Can I afford this car, will I be happy with this house?
____Em______________________________ A
Sometimes it’s so exciting, but it’s all so pointless

(STYLE 1)
The highs, the lows I’ve seen it all
Possessions and power, people and pleasure
But what’s the future got for me,__
Will I be remembered or just lost in space?

(CHORUS 1)
____D____D9__ Dsus D__ Em A
And life goes drifting by...__
D____D9__ Dsus D__ Em A
Life goes drifting by.
____ Em__________________A
It’s fun to play, but it doesn’t make sense
________Em__________________________A
Another day another dollar one step closer to the grave
____Em__ Em7__Asus A__ D Dsus D Dsus
And life goes drifting by...

(STYLE 1B)
______D____Dsus______ D__________Dsus
I see panic,____I see confusion.__
______D____Dsus________ D____ Dsus
I see hunger, and I see anger
______Em__A__________Em____ A
I see terror, people panic,__
____________Em______A____________ Em__A7__
Some take advantage____but no one cares

(STYLE 1B)
I’ve been bombarded it’s just like a movie
It hasn’t touched me, why should I care
All our freedoms disappearing,__
This world is changing but we’re all asleep

(CHORUS 1)
And life goes drifting by...__
Life goes drifting by.
It’s fun to play, but it doesn’t make sense
Another day another dollar one step closer to the grave
And life goes drifting by...

(STYLE 2)
____Em____________ A
And then one day I meet this guy,__
__ Em____________ A
He knows exactly why he’s here.__
__ Em________________________ A
He doesn’t have much but he’s got it all
__________ Em________________________ A
He’s got a peace, and he knows what’s coming next

(BRIDGE)
D______D9__ Dsus D Em A
What’s Your secret strength?
____D__D9 Dsus D____Em A
How can I find your peace?

(STYLE 2)
“Dust your Bible, read it through”
“God knows what’s happening – predicted it before”
“I know it’s true my life has changed”
“You’ll find my Jesus, hope, and prophecies”__

(CHORUS 2)
D__D9__ Dsus D__ Em A
No more drifting by...__
__ D______D9__Dsus D__Em A
My life’s now full of hope!
__Em______________A
Around me turmoil panic strife
______ Em________________________ A
But my life’s got meaning and I’m safe in His hands
____________Em Em7__Asus A__ D Dsus D Dsus
And there’s no more drifting by...

(STYLE 2)
I open the Book, and I drink in the words
I see myself in the stories and I hear His voice
I realise I’m a sinner and I’m worthy to die
But I cry out for help and He answers my cry!

(CHORUS 2)
And there’s no more drifting by...__
My life’s now full of hope!
Around me turmoil panic strife
But my life’s got meaning and I’m safe in His hands
And there’s no more drifting by....

(STYLE 1)
Well I’m still a human and I’ve got lots to learn
Sometimes I’m still discouraged but He picks me up again
We’re in a cosmic battle, but I’m not scared
‘Cause I know I’m on the winning side
My God is coming soon, and He’ll take me to His side

(CHORUS 3)
____________D__D9__ Dsus D__ Em A
And there’s no more drifting by...
__ D______D9__Dsus D__Em A
My life’s now full of hope!
__D____D9 Dsus D__ Em A
I know my future’s sure...
____D__ D9__ Dsus D__ Em A
My life makes so much sense...
(slower)
____D__ D9__Dsus D__Em A
And you can have it too...
