[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.


[Outro]

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...

This bit,
Sometimes we must grow stronger and

You can't be stronger in the dark.

When I'm here, no longer, you must be stronger, and ...

It should be, You can't be stronger when I'm gone ....

Great chords, though. The song sounds great!
