Intro: Am

[verse]
Am
Never really said too much
C
Afraid it wouldn’t be enough
G
Just try to keep my spirits up
             F           E
When there’s no point in grieving
Am
Doesn’t matter anyway
C
Words could never make me stay
G
Words will never take my place
         Dm        E
When you know I’m leaving


[chorus]
               F                 C
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
              G            Dm
Something I rely on to get home
          F                C
One I can feel at night, A naked light,
  Am              G
a fire to keep me warm
               F                 C
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
            G               Dm
Even in the daylight, shine on
              F                     Am
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
G                E
You won’t feel so alone


[verse]
Am
You know we’ve been down that road
C
What seems a thousand times before
G                                F           E
My back to a closing door and my eyes to the seasons
Am
That roll out underneath my heels
C
And you don’t know how bad it feels
G                                 Dm      E
To leave the only one that I have ever believed in


[chorus]
               F                 C
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
              G            Dm
Something I rely on to get home
          F                C
One I can feel at night, A naked light,
  Am              G
a fire to keep me warm
               F                 C
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
            G               Dm
Even in the daylight, shine on
              F                     Am
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
G                E
You won’t feel so alone


Bridge:
Am  C  G  Dm

D                                 G
Sometimes it feels like we’ve run out of luck
B5       B/A              Em
When the signal keeps on breaking up
C
When the wires cross in my brain
G
You’ll start my heart again
A7sus4
When I come along
A
Oh yeah

[chorus]
              F                 C
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
              G            Dm
Something I rely on to get home
          F                C
One I can feel at night, A naked light,
  Am              G
a fire to keep me warm
               F                 C
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
            G               Dm
Even in the daylight, shine on
              F                     Am
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
G                E
You won’t feel so alone
               F                 C
Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
            G               Dm
Even in the daylight, shine on
              F                     Am
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
G                E
You won’t feel so alone

that's it. play around with it, have fun.
i'll probably post a tab for the first 4 lines of the last chorus, so you guys can play 
plucking. but it's not that hard, i'm sure you guys can figure it out.
if anything, email me.
