Light Before We Land by The Delgados
Standard Tuning, No Capo


For the F/B chords, play x23210, and pull off to x20210. 
Alternatively You can just play E, slide your third/ring finger to the third fret,
 and then remove it for an E7 chord. Playing an E and sliding down a fret also sounds fine (to me).

[Intro]

A C#m G Bm
A C#m G Bm

E F/B 
E F/B


[Verse 1]

   A             Bm               E
In cases such as these I'd like a hand
      A          Bm               E
Don't wake me up without a master plan
     C#m             G/B
With sight and sound becoming fragile
C#m            Bm
Don't you understand?
     C#m                   G/B           E
When things that once were beautiful are bland


[Chorus]

           A    C#m        G         Bm
And when I feel like I can feel once again
       A              C#m 
Let me stay awhile
        G             Bm  
Soak it in awhile
          A    C#m       G           Bm
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
      A            C#m 
Buy a little time
         G               Bm
For this head of mine
          E
Haven for us


[Interlude]

E F/B 
E F/B


[Verse 2]

   A                 Bm              E
In truth there is no better place to be
     A              Bm                E
Than falling out of darkness still to see
    C#m        G/B
Without a premonition, could you
C#m              Bm
Tell me where we stand?
    C#m               G/B             E
I'd hate to lose this light before we land


[Chorus]

           A    C#m        G         Bm
And when I feel like I can feel once again
       A              C#m 
Let me stay awhile
        G             Bm  
Soak it in awhile
          A    C#m       G           Bm
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
      A            C#m 
Buy a little time
         G               Bm
For this head of mine
          E
Haven for us


[Interlude]

E F/B


[Bridge]

  A             C#m
Before we let euphoria
  A                C#m
Convince us we are free
  A              C#m
Remind us how we used to feel
  A                  C#m
Before when life was real

G         Bm              E
Aaah Aaah Aaah  Ah-uh-uh  Ah uh uh
G         Bm              E
Aaah Aaah Aaah  Ah-uh-uh  Ah uh uh


[Chorus]

           A    C#m        G         Bm
And when I feel like I can feel once again
       A              C#m 
Let me stay awhile
        G             Bm  
Soak it in awhile
          A    C#m       G           Bm
If we can hold on we can fix what is wrong
      A            C#m 
Buy a little time
         G               Bm
For this head of mine
          E
Haven for us
