[Intro]
Em   G   C   D


[Verse]
Em      G       C         D
    So long to all my friends,
      Em       G        C     D
Every one of them met tragic ends,
Em       G     C       D
   With every passing day,
        Em    G    C      D
I'd be lying if I didn’t say,
        C               D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
That I miss them all tonight
             C             D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
And if they only knew what I would say


[Chorus]
   Em       G       C     D
If I could be with you tonight
         Em           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       C                 D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes
Em       G         C         D
    One day, I'll lose this fight
       Em          G            C
As we fade in the dark, just remember
         D                Em     G     C    D
you will always burn as bright


[Verse]
Em          G         C       D
     Be strong, and hold my hand.
          Em       G          C      D
Time, it comes for us, you'll understand.
Em          G       C     D
     We'll say goodbye today,
           Em    G      C         D
And we're sorry how it ends this way
         C             D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
If you promise not to cry
        C                 D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
I will tell you just what I would say


[Chorus]
   Em       G       C     D
If I could be with you tonight
         Em           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       C                 D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes
Em        G        C         D
    I'll fail and lose this fight
       Em          G            C
Never fade in the dark, just remember
         D
you will always burn as bright
C     D
           The light behind your eyes...
C     D
           the light behind your...


[Bridge]
Em                 D
     Sometimes we must grow stronger and
C                    G
     You can't be stronger in the dark.
Em                   D       C                     D
     When I'm here,      no longer, you must be stronger, and


[Chorus]
   Em      G        C     D
If I could be with you tonight,
         Em           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       C                 D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes.
Em          G         C         D
     I've failed and lost this fight,
       Em          G
Never fade in the dark,
        C              D
Just remember you will always burn as bright.


C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your...
