Song: Light in Your Eyes
Band: Blessid Union of Souls
Transcribed by: J. White, Austin, TX

Note: Piano chords differ slightly from guitar chords throughout, and guitar takes 
a backseat to what sounds to be a mandolin in the chorus.  This is probably part of the source of confusion with 
the other tabs.  Strumming the high strings only during the chorus helps with sound matching.  Here is a version 
that can be played solo on rhythm guitar, or with piano accompaniment, that I believe is more accurate than the 
other versions available.


***Capo - 2nd fret


Chords:

A:    x02220
D:    xx0232

Intro:  A  D  F#m  E (x2)

Verses:

A       D            E         D             A     D    E    D
I can't remember the last time we kissed goodbye
A         D               E         D           A   D   E
All our I love you's were just not enough to survive
E              C#m         D
Something your eyes never told me
         A                   E
But it's only now to plain to see
             C#m             D
Brilliant disguise when you hold me
        B      D     E
and I'm free

(then verse again)

A         D            E                D           A      D     E    D
I've been thinking and here's what I've come to conclude
A             D           E             D          A       D     E
Sometimes the distance is more than two people can use
E             C#m    D      
But how could I have known girl
       A                            E
It was time and not space you would need
          C#m            D
Darlin' tonight, I could hold you
              B         D           E
And you would know, but would you believe

Chorus:
           A                      D         E   
There's a light in your eyes that I used to see
          A                         D         E
There's a place in your heart where I used to be
      A                             D           B
Was I wrong to assume that you were waiting for me
         D
There's a light in your eyes
                         E           A    D   F#m   E
Did you leave that light burning for me

A    D   F#m   E 

A         D               E          D           A      D     E    D
Cards and phone calls and photograph pictures of you
A          D         E              D            A      D     E
Constant reminder of all the things you get used to
E          C#m               D 
Is there a chance in hell or heaven
             A                             E
That there's still something here to build on
          C#m              D                 B
Or do you just pick up the pieces after they fall
D         E
But after all

          A                       D         E
There's a light in your eyes that I used to see
      A                      D            E
And a song in the words that you spoke to me
      A                   D         B
Was I wrong to believe in your melody
          D
There's a light in your eyes
                         E           F#m       D
Did you leave that light burning for me


       A                         E                    F#m      D
Should I keep on waiting or does love keep on fading away
        B       D      E
Fading away

A    G (x3)
A    D    E     D


A           D                E           D            A       D     E    D
It's been a while since I've seen you so how have you been
    A          D        E              D         A            D     E
Did you get my letter I wrote you, but I did not send
E          C#m               D 
I tried to call your old number
        A                         E
But the voice that I heard on the phone
       C#m           D                      B     
I recognized but she told me the number was wrong


(piano only, or slow strum or pick guitar as substitute)

***piano chord progression differs somewhat from guitar part - don't have a piano 
here to figure out the nuances, but this arrangement will do. 


          A           Asus2/C#      Dsus2/F#      E
There's a light in my eyes but it's too bright to see
      A          Asus2/C#    Dsus2/F#    E
And a pain in my heart where you used to be
            A          Asus2/C#           Dsus2/F#         B
Guess I was wrong to assume that you were waiting here for me
          Dsus2/F#             
There's a light in your eyes
        F#m               E           A    Asus2/C#  Dsus2/F#  E  A
Did you leave that light burning for me 


END

Or, easy version of last chorus:


          A           A             D            E
There's a light in my eyes but it's too bright to see
      A          A           D           E
And a pain in my heart where you used to be
            A          A                  D                B
Guess I was wrong to assume that you were waiting here for me
          D             
There's a light in your eyes
        F#m               E           A        D     E     A
Did you leave that light burning for me
