Intro Chords: E B A x2

Verse 1:
C#m                 A
I've worked for so long

E
With the weakest of hands

        B                     C#m
On the coldest of shores.

                  A
The wind and the rain

E
Fill me with doubt,

            B
But you've never been wrong before.


Tag 1 (acoustic):
G#m               A *(optional)
I prayed for the sun,

F#m
Some guidance, some truth,

       B*
Some glimpse of the things to come.

G#m             A
With only your song,

      D*
Your love made me strong

     E/D#
When all hope was gone.


Tag (electric) *palm mute*

    G#m     A     F#m     B
e|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------|
D|---6------7------4------9------|
A|---6-x6---7-x6---4-x6---9-x6---|
E|---4------5------2------7------|
     *      *      *      *

    G#m     A     F#m    E/D#
e|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|----------6------7------8---------8---|
D|---6------6-x6---7-x6---9-x3------9---| (let ring)
A|---6-x6---4------5------6---------6---|
E|---4----------------------------------|
     *      *      *      *

Chorus: (for electric, use power chords. These are the bottom three notes of every 
chord. For example an E power chord would be xxx220. Easy peasy.)
E                           B   A
All through the night I was fallin',

E                            B   A
Straining to hear Your voice callin'.

C#m
You never gave out,

G#m
You never gave in,

A                E         A
You never quite gave up on me.

B
You are my constant.


Intro Chords stay the same.

Same as the Intro Riff, but it throws in one extra note that carries into the second 
a little longer.

B|---------------------------------------12--12------------|
G|---11b13---11b13b11---9---11b13---11h13--13--13----------|

D|---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 2:
We always want time
To hoard up our treasures
And bury our dead.
It's true what he said.
Foxes have holes,
But the king has no place for his head.

Tag 2:
I pray for relief,
But relief doesn't come,
Just the will to press on.
With only Your song,
Your love makes me strong
When all hope is gone.

Chorus

Bridge:
C
All through the night,

D                        E
Your love is faithful to me.

C
All through the night,

D                            E
Your love is right here with me.

C
All through the night,

D                    E
Your love is holding me.

Chorus (begins with just acoustic and then the electric comes in with muted power chords)

All through the night I was fallin',
Straining to see your light shinin'.
You never gave out,
You never gave in,
You never quite gave up on me.
You are my constant. (this phrase x4)
