A time of change, a time to rest
Em								A
Bolt up the windows, dig in hard shoulder
Then come out, to give yourself, 
A                           Em			Em
to give yourself a fighting chance

I've seen those eyes, I know that face
So many search for a resting place
Just give me your word, that's all I need
Em									          A
No time to lose, I've wasted too much already
A							      A	      Em         Em
Making plans by the ninety, taking action by the new time

The lonely search in the silent halls
Hunters prowl around wounded in the night
A					      A
By an unknown enemy, who runs them down
A 							         Em		Em
By wearing a hundred different masks

With darkness closing all around
Your light is small but let it shine
          A 			  A		      A	
That much brighter, everytime, everytime
A                   Em		Em
Everytime I look to you

Em					      G		   A
Urgent embrace and a love that calls
Em					       G	 A	        Em 
Throw away the old -- and greet the emergency

With all you've got, with all you can give

Greet it with all that you have got
