Em7                  Cadd9
Warm yourself by the fire son,
        D5                Asus4
And the morning will come soon.
Em7                        Cadd9
I'll tell you stories of a better time,
     G5                 Em7
In a place that we once knew.
Em7                           Cadd9
Before we packed our bags and left all this,
  D5             Asus4
Behind us in the dust,
Em7                          Cadd9
We had a place that we could call home,
      G5                Em7
And a life no one could touch.


CHORUS
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G5
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Cadd9
You won't let me down, down, down,
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G5
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Cadd9
You won't let me down, down, down, down...

Em7                      Cadd9
We are the angry and the desperate,
    D5             Asus4
The hungry and the cold.
Em7                      Cadd9
We are the ones who kept quiet,
           G5               Em7
And always did what we were told.
Em7                               Cadd9
But we've been sweating while you slept so calm,
       D5             Asus4
In the safety of your home.
Em7                        Cadd9
We've been pulling out the nails that hold up,
G5                Em7
Everything you've known.


CHORUS
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Cadd9
You won't let me down, down, down,
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Cadd9              Am
You won't let me down, down, down...


BRIDGE I
(Am)         G5                          Am
So open your eyes child, let’s be on our way,
                   G5                    Am
Broken windows and ashes are guiding the way.
              G                              F
Keep quiet no longer, we'll sing through the day,
                        Em7                         Cadd9    G5    D5
Of the lives that we've lost, and the lives we've reclaimed.

Sorry the chords got butchered when the tab was posted on the website. I'm not really sure how that happened, but this is how they should read:

G : 320033
Cadd9: x32033
Dsus4: xx0233
Em7 : 022033
Am : x02210
F : x33211
C# : xx3121 (Like I say in the tab, I'm not 100% sure on this one.)

hey thanks for posting this ive been looking for it. i wont be able to check it out til tomoro, so i cant rate it, but you should repost this as chords instead of as a guitar tab. it will make it much easier for alot of people to read.
