Ok I'm kinda new, so go easy on me

 

Billy Joel

Two Thousand Years

 

From The River of Dreams

 

F

In the beginning

Bb C

there was the cold and the night

Gm

Prophets and angels

C F

gave us the fire and the light

Dm

Man was triumphant

A dim Bb B dim

Armed with the faith and the will

Bb F C

That even the darkest ages couldn't kill

 

F

Too many kingdoms

Bb C

Too many flags on the field

Gm

So many battles

C F

So many wounds to be healed

Dm

Time is relentless

Adim Bb Bdim

Only true love perseveres

F Bb Dm

It's been a long time and now I'm with you

C F

After two thousand years

 

F

This is our moment

Bb C

Here at the crossroads of time

Gm

We hope our children

C F

Carry our dreams down the line

Dm

they are the vintage

A dim Bb Bdim

What kind of life will they live?

Bb F C

Is this a curse or a blessing that we give?

 

F

Sometimes I wonder

Bb C

Why are we so blind to Fate?

Gm

Without compassion

C F

there can be no end to hate

Dm

No end to sorrow

Adim Bb Bdim

caused by the same endless fears

Bb F Dm

Why can’t we learn from all we’ve been through

C F

after two thousand years?

 

F

There will be miracles

Bb C

after the last war is won

Gm

Science and poetry

C F

Rule in the new world to come

Dm

Prophets and angels

dim Bb Bdim

gave us the power to see

Bb F C

what an amazing future there will be

 

F

And in the evening

Bb C

after the fire and the light

Gm

One thing is certain

C F

nothing can hold back the night

Dm

Time is relentless

Adim Bb Bdim

and as the past disappears

F Bb Dm

We’re on the verge of all things new

C Bb F

We are two thousand years

 

Outro

 

F-Bb-C-F

 

Notes: I find that the F and Bb in the second-to-last line of each stanza is

I placed them where I thought they sounded best, but they are subjective. Also, at the

of

stanza, Joel goes up the bass from F to Bb (starting at F to G etc.) and when the bass

to Bb the chord changes. That’s easier to understand on piano
