[Verse]

  Am                                  Dsus2  G        
I don't know what it is that makes me feel alive
  Am                                     Dsus2    G
I don't know how to wake the things that sleep inside
  Am                            Dsus2    G       Am    Dsus2 G
I only wanna see the light that shines behind your eyes

  Am                               Dsus2    G
I hope that I can say the things I wish I'd said
   Am                                Dsus2    G
To sing my soul to sleep and take me back to bed
    Am                            Dsus2  G       (Am G D Fmaj7 E)
who wants to be alone when we can feel alive instead


[Chorus]

           Fmaj7 C     G         Fmaj7 C          G        
Because we need   each other we believe  in one another
           Fmaj7  C          G                                   Fmaj7 C G
And I know we're  going to uncover what's sleepin' in our soul  
           Fmaj7 C     G         Fmaj7 C          G        
because we need   each other we believe  in one another
           Fmaj7  C          G                                   Fmaj7 C G
And I know we're  going to uncover what's sleepin' in our soul        
                       Am G D Fmaj7 E
what's sleepin' in our soul...


[Verse]

(repeat for the 2nd verse)

there are many things that i would like to know
and there are many places that i wish to go
but everything's depending on the way the wind may blow
I dont know what it is that makes me feel alive
i dont know how to wake the things that sleep inside
                                                   Am G D Fmaj7 E
i only wanna see the light that shines behind your eyes...  


[Chorus]

           Fmaj7 C     G         Fmaj7 C          G        
Because we need   each other we believe  in one another
           Fmaj7  C          G                                   Fmaj7 C G
And I know we're  going to uncover what's sleepin' in our soul  
           Fmaj7 C     G         Fmaj7 C          G        
because we need   each other we believe  in one another
           Fmaj7  C          G                                   Fmaj7 C G
And I know we're  going to uncover what's sleepin' in our soul        
              Fmaj7 C G
sleeping in our soul...
            Fmaj7 C G
cause we believe...

About the artist behind Acquiesce:

Oasis are an English rock band that formed in Manchester in 1991. The group was formed by Liam Gallagher (lead vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCarroll (drums), who were soon joined by Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals). Oasis have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide,[1] and have had eight UK number one singles. The Gallagher brothers are the band's leading songwriters and the only continual members. The present lineup is completed by rhythm/lead guitarist and songwriter Gem Archer, guitarist and songwriter Andy Bell and unofficial drummer Zak Starkey.

The band initially gained prominence performing on the Manchester club circuit. They were signed to independent record label Creation Records and afterwards released their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. The following year, the band recorded (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) with their new drummer Alan White, whilst rivalling with Britpop peers Blur in the charts. The Gallagher brothers were featured regularly in tabloid newspapers for their sibling rivalry and wild lifestyles, cultivating reputations both as bad boys and as a band of the people. At the height of their fame, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now (1997), became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history, but lost much of its long-term appeal after the initial hype and positive reception tempered.

While recording their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) in 1999, Oasis lost two founding members and suffered a notable decline in popularity in America. The band added replacements Gem Archer and Andy Bell for Heathen Chemistry (2002). Their sixth album Don't Believe the Truth (2005) with Zak Starkey, despite turbulent recording, became their best-selling and best-received album in a decade. The following year, the band released a compilation album entitled Stop the Clocks. In February 2007, Oasis received the BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to music.

The seventh studio album by the band is reported to be complete and, although an official release date has not been confirmed, both Liam and Noel Gallagher have been quoted as saying that the album is due out in September 2008. [2] [3]
