This is a great song from a great Irish band that doesn't get enough publicity.  These guys are mostly secular, but have done a couple of Christian songs.  You may have heard their work on the theme for the motion picture "Benny and Joon"

The More I Believe -- Proclaimers:
(Basically E, A, B thru the whole thang)
Verse 1-
    E                   A
The life that I've been living
         B                E
from the day I first drew breath
    E                 A
Has been my way of forgettin'
           B             E
I'm on the journey to my death
(same chords thru whole thing...)
You make my soul rise up,
and You make my eyes to see,
when I place my faith in You,
and I lose my belief in me.
The less I believe in me,
The more I believe in Thee (repeat)
Verse 2-
I don't believe in beads or crystals
Instant karma or mother earth.
I don't believe that what I think
makes any difference to what I'm worth.
I don't believe in reincarnation,
I'm not coming back as a flower.
I don't bow my heads to kings or preists
cause I believe in Your higher power
Repeat Chorus
             A         E
Well You've given me a plan
     A       E
That I don't understand.
           A             E
Cause I've wandered over half the world
         B                    E
Yet I've remained an ignorant man.
Bridge 2-
A                E
One thing that I know,
             A         E
Is when the final bell tolls,
A                A
human love won't be enough,
good deeds can't save my soul.
Verse 3-
Well I'm not afraid of dying,
but I am afraid of You,
because You hear me when I'm lying,
and you see the things I do.
So the hands go round the clock,
as the life goes from the room.
And I can't help thinking to myself,
I'm gonna find out much too soon.

Well that's pretty much it. I'm not quite sure how they end it, but If you have any questions or comments, or you want a midi file of the song, e-mail me at cuinheaven at
