----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: staind_dust87

Tuning: Dropped C

Ok, I know what your saying, 3DD don't use drop C! Normally I would agree with you, but 
along with the song while playing my tab and you'll be a believer! If you watch them 
they play this song live, it makes sense!

intro/verse:play this through out the verse until the pre-chorus

Pre-Chorus
Chorus

Now the third verse involves some extreme finger picking on the chords Dm, B, and Am.
I'm not sure what it is, when ever I figure it out, I'll update the tab again!

Lyrics:

Beyond the boundaries of your city's lights,
Stand the heroes waiting for your cries.
So many times you did not bring this on yourself,
When that moment finally comes,
I'll be there to help.

On that day
When you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here.

Citizen soldiers holding the light
For the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready
Because we will always be there.

When there are people crying in the streets,
When they're starving for a meal to eat,
When they simply need a place to make their beds,
Right here underneath my wing,
You can rest your head.

On that day
When you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here.

Citizen soldiers holding the light
For the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready
Because we will always be there.

Hope and pray that you'll never need me,
But rest assured I will not let you down.
I'll walk beside you but you may not see me,
The strongest among you may not wear a crown.

On that day
When you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here!
On that day
When you don't have the strength for the burden you bear,
I'll be right here!
