G         D         F          G                          D
Lay down, lay down, lay it all down..let your white birds smile
       F                  G
at the ones who stand and frown.

at the ones who stand and frown.

#1.
Em         D                   Em              D
We were so close, there was no room, we bled inside each 
        Em
other's wounds.
Em         D               Em                  D
We all had caught the same disease..and we all sang, the songs 
   Em
of peace.

CHORUS:
G         D         F          G                          D

at the ones who stand and frown.
G         D         F          G                          D

at the ones who stand and frown.

#2.
    D     A           Em                 G  
So, raise the candles high, cause if you don't, we could stay 
D      A          Em
black against the night.
    D     A            Em               G
Oh, raise them higher again, and if you do we could stay 
D    A          Em
dry against the rain.

CHORUS:
G         D         F          G                          D

at the ones who stand and frown.

       F                  Em
at the ones who stand and frown.

#3.
Em         D                   Em              D
We were so close, there was no room, we bled inside each 
        Em
other's wounds.
Em         D               Em                  D
We all had caught the same disease..and we all sang, the songs 
   Em
of peace.
             D                  Em                 D              Em
Some came to sing, some came to pray..some came to keep the dark away.

#4.
    D     A           Em                 G  
So, raise the candles high, cause if you don't, we could stay

black against the night.
    D     A            Em               G
Oh, raise them higher again, and if you do we could stay 
D    A          Em
dry against the rain.

CHORUS:

at the ones who stand and frown.
G         D         F          G                          D

at the ones who stand and frown.
