Hey guys! These are the chords to 'Blinding Light' from Switchfoot's latest album 'Vice 
Verses'. I'm not totally sure on all the chords as this song is very chordal, but I 
noticed a need and I hope you have fun playing it.

Key: C

Verse 1:
C throughout
Hey boy, don't believe them, their old lies never could come true
Hey boy, don't believe them, everything that they told you to
Hey boy, don't believe them, we're the nation that eats our youth
Hey boy, don't believe them, none of us our bullet proof, yeh

Pre-chorus:
F                      G         F                           G
Deep down there's a war inside, asleep waiting for the sun to rise
F               (G)
Wake up, wake up

Chorus:
                      C                                     G
Still looking for the blinding light, still looking for the reason why
                      Am                    F          G
Still looking for the sun to shine, take me higher and higher
C                                     G
All my life, I've been living in the darkest night, still looking for the
Am                      F          (Fm)
blinding light, to make higher and higher

Verse 2:
C
Hey girl, be yourself now, don't believe what they told you to
Hey girl, be yourself now, your skin's more than a pin up suit
Hey girl, don't conform now, No one else's got soul like you
Hey girl, you're a strong one, but none of us are bulletproof, yeh

Pre-chorus 2:
F                       G       F                       G
Deep down there's a hope inside, you got wings but your scared to fly
F                (G)
Wake up, wake up,

Chorus

Pre-chorus 3:
F                         G      F                G
Deep down there's a hope inside, brighter than the fears in my mind
F                      G              F                 G
I keep looking for the blinding light, It's a hope that keeps me live
F             (G)
Wake up, wake up

Chorus

Chorus (variation in lyrics):
Blinding light, blinding light, Yeah I've been waiting on my life, To take me higher and 
higher, Blinding light, you're the vision that gives me sight, All the blinding light, 
take me higher and higher

Hope you enjoy this - buy the album! John

There's more going on in the verses than just C, and your Fm should definitely be a G#
