________________________________________________________
|***G#m7 doesn't have a very easily playable chord form|
|when it comes to the way this song is played, so      |
|if you take off the 7th note it's just G#m and sounds |
|close enough, but if your determined to play it right,|
|here's the form:                                      |
|E|--4--   --7--                                       |
|B|--7--   --7--                                       |

[Verse]
F#                  C#2
   You woke the morning up
                 G#m7
running off the darkest night
                       D#sus4
the longest fight i’ve seen

F#                   C#2
   Here goes a chance i know
              G#m7
cashing in on all my chips
                  D#sus4
let all my ships come fly


[Pre-Chorus]
      Bmaj7               D#m             C#2
these days, a little bit longer that the last
                Bmaj7               D#m              C#2
and all of your ways, a little bit stronger than the past
         Bmaj7            D#m          C#2
and your light, found my bottle in the night
    D#m             C#       D#m             C#2
and gave me second life, you kept me in this fight, 


[Chorus]
      F#2        C#2
and I won’t back down
  F#2          B
I won’t turn around and around
      F#2        C#2
and I won’t back down
          B
doesn’t matter what comes crashing down
    D#m                   C#2
I’m still gonna stand my solid ground


[Pre-verse chords]
F#sus2    F#    F#sus2     F#5

[Verse]
F#                        C#2
   you found me once and for all
                       G#m7 
i laid it down in the sinking ground
               D#sus4
the hopeless undertow

F#                      C#2
   singing out the gentle sound
                     G#m7
rattling through my smoking screens
                    D#sus4
my broken dreams last night


[Repeat Pre-Chorus]
[Repeat Chorus]


[Bridge/Outro]
         C#5/F      F#       
I sing Hallelujah, rip through my veins
  F#sus2/F
I heard the hammer drop
  F#5/D#
my blood in the rain
  C#5/F      F#       
Hallelujah, came like a train
  F#sus2/F
when all is lost
  F#5/D#  
all is left to gain


[Repeat Chorus till end]
