Verse

G       C       G       C
Em      C       G

Lately I've found
When I start to think aloud
There's a longing in the sound
There is more I could be
In darkness I leave
For a place I've never seen
It's been calling out to me
That is where I should be

We will find ourselves on the road

On we march with a midnight song
We will light our way
With our lanterns on
On we march ‘til we meet the dawn
We will light our way
With our lanterns on

2nd Verse

G       C       G       C
Em      C       G


As we walk out
Without question without doubt
In the light that we have found
It is finally clear

Our day has come
And we'll stand for who we are
We are ready we are young
We have nothing to fear

Repeat Fill + Pre-Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Bridge

C       Am
C       Am
C       F       Am

We held the light
To our faces
And realised
We were chasing
Shadows behind
Not worth saving
So burn it bright
Forever illuminating

Repeat Chorus x2

Outro

G       C       G       C
Em      C       G

In darkness I leave
For a place I've never seen
It's been calling out to me
That is where I should be

I might be completely tone deaf, but to me the riff sounds like
