 G                C              G                     C
Smile down on us sun, show your rays when things come undone

All animals lead, us to light when we can't see

Verse 2: Use verse 1 chords (riff 1)

Verse 3: Use verse 1 Chords (riff 1)
All calendars pass, days die off, and hope cannot last 
But if love was like stone, then yours was mine, through to my bones 
But how can we give back to those, with whom we can't live 
When will the flame break and spare the good people it takes 

Pre-Chorus Chords: (riff 2)
Awe, souls escape fire, they rise higher, souls escape fire, they rise higher 

Chorus Chords: (riff 3)
Gentle moon, find us soon, gentle moon, find us soon (repeat till fade out)

Thanks for this.

For Riff 1 you can also try like this:
- open G with a little riff of ABAG using the G and B string (index finger)
- open C with a little riff of DEDE using the D string (pull off/on middle finger)
