Light Of Day, by Tommy Stinson

Tommy's site: http://www.tommystinson.com/

Song taken from the Album 'Village Gorilla Head'

This is a beautiful, beautiful song.
It deserved to be tabbed/chorded much better than this, but since noone else has done 
I have taken it upon myself.
A few bits here I’m not completely happy with, but it’s very close I think. Any suggestions?

Verse 1:

C				Am                         Em
We'll always make it through the day there's always gonna be a better way
                   G
Always be someone else's way
C				Am
Even when we know we've gone too far
               Em				   G
Closer to the edge is so much further than we'll get without a car

F                              C                          F
And everyone's lookin for some place they're just killing more time than
C
space
F		Em	    Am		           F		C
Some nights I wish that the sun would never show its face

Verse 2:

C			Am                     Em
You're so beautiful at night the moon's got a way of lighting you
             G
The way no picture’s ever goin to
C				Am
Even when the stars begin to weep
                  Em				         G
We'll laugh at the expense of all their grief you never made me feel like I'm a creep

F                             C                            F                And 
lookin for some space we're just killing time all over this
  C
place
F		Em	     Am		          F	    C
Some nights I wish that the sun would never show its face

Chorus

F                C	  Am	    Em       G
Wouldn't want to face the light of day
C	  Am	   Em		G
Face the light of day with anyone
F           C	   Am	      Em
Will you face the light of day
G		   F	        G	    C
With anyone like I'll face the night with you

Verse 3:

C				   Am                     Em
Just look at everyone no one really knowing why they're here
               G
Tryin so hard not to disappear
C				Am                         Em
Doesn't take a lot to make you dance we're making such a scene
                                     G
With two left feet never even sing or hear the beat

F			         C                          F
And everyone's looking for some place they're just killing more time in
C
haste
F		Em		Am		F		C
Some nights it feels like the moon is just a light above our graves

Chorus


       F	    G		C	Am
Like I’ll face the night with you

Chorus


       F	     G		C
Like I’ll face the night with you
