        Em
other's wounds.
Em         D               Em                  D
We all had caught the same disease..and we all sang, the songs 
   Em
of peace.

#2.
    D     A           Em                 G  
So, raise the candles high, cause if you don't, we could stay 
D      A          Em
black against the night.
    D     A            Em               G
Oh, raise them higher again, and if you do we could stay

dry against the rain.

at the ones who stand and frown.

#3.

Em         D               Em                  D
We all had caught the same disease..and we all sang, the songs 
   Em
of peace.
             D                  Em                 D              Em
