[Verse]

Cadd9           Em7                G
Times that I've seen you lose your way
              Dadd4/F#
You're not in control and you won't be told
Cadd9      Em7           G                  
All I can do to keep you safe 
            Dadd4/F#
Is hold you close, hold you close 
Cadd9        Dadd4/F#        Em7
'Til you can breathe on your own
Cadd9        Dadd4/F#        Em7
'Til you can breathe on your own


[Chorus]

Cadd9                   Dadd4/F#  Em7          G
Hold tight; you're slowly coming back to life
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9             Dadd4/F#   Em7          G
Let go of all your haunted dreams tonight
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9                   Dadd4/F#  Em7          G
Hold tight; you're slowly coming back to life
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9             Dadd4/F#   Em7          G
Let go of all your haunted dreams tonight
G                            Dadd4/F#
I'll be keeping your head up
                          Cadd9
I'll be keeping your head up
    C
And I won't let you down


[Verse]

Cadd9      Em7          G
Everyone keeps a darker place
         Dadd4/F#
To lose control, you're not alone
Cadd9             Em7         G
And when you come looking for embrace
            Dadd4/F#
I know your soul; I'll be your home
Cadd9        Dadd4/F#        Em7
'Til you can breathe on your own
Cadd9        Dadd4/F#        Em7
'Til you can breathe on your own


[Chorus]

Cadd9                   Dadd4/F#  Em7          G
Hold tight; you're slowly coming back to life
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9             Dadd4/F#   Em7          G
Let go of all your haunted dreams tonight
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9                   Dadd4/F#  Em7          G
Hold tight; you're slowly coming back to life
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9             Dadd4/F#   Em7          G
Let go of all your haunted dreams tonight
G                            Dadd4/F#
I'll be keeping your head up
                          Cadd9
I'll be keeping your head up

And I won't let you down


[Bridge]

Am                   G          C
You never think that you can fly
C   
You'll always swim against the tide
Am                   G            F
Don't you know your pain is mine?
                                    C               Dadd4/F#  Em7
And I would die a thousand times to ease your mind
   C               Dadd4/F#  Em7
To ease your mind


[Chorus]

Cadd9                   Dadd4/F#  Em7          G
Hold tight; you're slowly coming back to life
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9             Dadd4/F#   Em7          G
Let go of all your haunted dreams tonight
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9                   Dadd4/F#  Em7          G
Hold tight; you're slowly coming back to life
G
I'll be keeping your head up
Am                   Em/C
I'll be keeping your head up, darling
Cadd9             Dadd4/F#   Em7          G
Let go of all your haunted dreams tonight
G                            Dadd4/F#
I'll be keeping your head up
                          Cadd9
I'll be keeping your head up

Thanks for the chords! Thought of putting up the chords on my own as well but now there's no need. The chorus ain't the easiest one...
