Real Guitar Chords Nichole Nordeman
[Intro] E7 B D#m [Verse 1] E7 B D#m Frozen statues in the cold, washed in moonlight blue and gold. E7 G#m F# Mary's babe in plastic hay, quiet wonder on her face. E7 B D#m Mary, you look so serene, far too pretty, much too clean. E7 B D#m We might think we know you well, but what stories would you tell? E G#m B D#m Of all the dirt and dust and shame, every burning labor pain, E F# And as I turn to walk away, I hear you say... [Chorus] E F# I am real. G#m E Don't turn me into memory or myth. E F# Let me be real. Real. G#m E And I'll show you what it means to love like this. E To be real. [Interlude] E7 B D#m [Verse 2] E7 B D#m Shepherds bending to the ground, Bethlehem is safe and sound. E7 B D#m Joseph, you look brave and true, but do we know what it was like to be you? E7 B D#m How many sleepless nights awake found you desperate and afraid? E7 F# And as I turn to walk away, I hear you say... [Chorus] E F# I am real. G#m E Don't turn me into memory or myth. E F# Let me be real, real G#m E And I'll show you what it means to love like this. [Bridge] C#m B To love like you don't even care about the hurry and the hussle, C#m B Like you are unaware December comes with so much trouble C#m B E Cause you believe a baby came not in paintings or in plays E But every minute, every hour, every day. [Chorus] B To be real, D#m Real G#m B D#m E F# You are real, real E Show us what it means to love like this. E To be real F# To be real E More than a memory, F# More than a story.
