Capo
5th fret
Capo on 5  (As someone pointed out, the song is accurately played on the 7th
fret, but for singing purposes it sounds better on the 5th, ...for some :)

[Verse]

Dm                          Am
I remember tears streaming down your face
        F                      C
When I said, I'll never let you go
  Dm                       Am             F      C
When all those shadows almost killed your light
  Dm        Am              F             C
I remember you said, Don't leave me here alone
  Dm                     Am               F      pause
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight


[Chorus]

F                   C
  Just close your eyes
     G             F
The sun is going down
            C
You'll be alright
    G               F
No one can hurt you now
               C
Come morning light
G                 Am      F
You and I'll be safe and sound

[Verse]

Dm              Am                     F
Don't you dare look out your window darling
                 C
Everything's on fire
Dm                   Am                F     C
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Dm      Am     F     C
Hold onto this lullaby
Dm            Am        F       F
Even when the music's gone    gone


[Chorus]

F                   C
  Just close your eyes
     G             F
The sun is going down
            C
You'll be alright
    G               F
No one can hurt you now
               C
Come morning light
G                 Am      F
You and I'll be safe and sound


[Bridge]

F         C         Am         Dm
Ooooh    Oooooh     Ahhhhh    Ahhhhhh
F         C         Am         Dm
Ooooh    Oooooh     Ahhhhh    Ahhhhhh

I really like this version of the song, it sounds the most accurate out of all the other chords I've found. I was wondering if you might be able to do the chords for the 'ooh ooh ah' etc. parts between the second chorus and bridge and then again at the end of the song. If you don't want to/can't, I totally understand. Thanks so much! :)

The capo is on the wrong fret. It should be a capo on the 7th fret for these chords.

at the last part of the chorus when she says "safe and sound", i think the correct chords are Am then F instead of F then Am
