[Intro]
Em7   G   Cadd9   D


[Verse]
Em7   F#/G           Cadd9     D
    So long to all my friends,
     Em7    F#/G  G       Cadd9   D
Every one of them met tragic ends,
Em7  F#/G     G     Cadd9    D
   With every passing day,
        Em7  F#/G  G    Cadd9    D
I'd be lying if I didn’t say,
        Cadd9               D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
That I miss them all tonight
            Cadd9          D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
And if they only knew what I would say


[Chorus]
   Em7   F#/G    G     Cadd9 D
If I could be with you tonight
         Em7           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       Cadd9             D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes
Em7  F#/G  G         Cadd9     D
    One day, I'll lose this fight
       Em7   F#/G   G            Cadd9
As we fade in the dark, just remember
         D                Em7     Em7-------Em7
you will always burn as bright


[Verse]
Em7    F#/G      G         Cadd9   D
     Be strong, and hold my hand.
          Em7       G          Cadd9  D
Time, it comes for us, you'll understand.
Em7   F#/G   G       Cadd9 D
     We'll say goodbye today,
      Em7  F#/G    G      Cadd9     D
And we're sorry how it ends this way
         Cadd9         D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
If you promise not to cry
        Cadd9             D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
I will tell you just what I would say


[Chorus]
   Em7       G       Cadd9 D
If I could be with you tonight
         Em7           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       Cadd9             D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes
Em7       G        Cadd9     D
    I'll fail and lose this fight
       Em7         G          Cadd9
Never fade in the dark, just remember
         D
you will always burn as bright
Cadd9 D
           The light behind your eyes...
Cadd9 D
           the light behind your...


[Bridge]
Em7                 D
     Sometimes we must grow stronger and
Cadd9                G
     You can't be stronger in the dark.
Em7                   D       Cadd9                 D
     When I'm here,      no longer, you must be stronger, and


[Chorus]
   Em7      G        Cadd9   D
If I could be with you tonight,
         Em7           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       Cadd9             D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes.
Em7          G         Cadd9     D
     I've failed and lost this fight,
       Em7          G
Never fade in the dark,
        Cadd9          D
Just remember you will always burn as bright.


Cadd9 D
           the light behind your eyes
Cadd9 D
           the light behind your eyes
Cadd9 D
           the light behind your eyes
Cadd9 D
           the light behind your eyes
Cadd9 D
           the light behind your eyes
Cadd9 D

           the light behind your...



NOTE: these are basic chords which can also be played as Em/G - G - C/G - D during the choruses. At the end of 
the first chourus just strum the Em7 on the every up and down beat, a total of 16 times. The F#/G is a slide 
up on the top E string, or low E string as some call it, it is in the music video if you know what the chord 
looks like, but you can hear it in the song as well. Hope you enjoy the addition of the chord.
