[Verse 1]

Cm                           G7
Strange things are happening every day
           C                 Fm *
I hear the music up above my head
           G#                    Cm
Though the sight of my heart has left me again,
       G        Cm
I hear music up above

[Verse 2]

Cm                  G7
Secrets are written in the sky
                C                        Fm *
Looks like I’ve lost the love I’ve never found
           G#                Cm
Though the sound of hope has left me again,
       G        Cm
I hear music up above


C                           Em
Standing in my broken heart all night long
Am                                  F
Darkness held me like a friend when love wore off
C                                  Em
Looking for the lamb that’s hidden in the cross
             Am   F  **
The finder’s lost
Dm G        C             Am
I know I’ve loved you too much
           Dm  G        C  Fm G
I’ll go on alone to get through


Cm G7 C Fm 
G# Cm G Cm

[Verse 3]

Cm                     G7
I hear Rosetta singing in the night
          C                                         Fm *
Echoes of light that shine like stars after they’re gone
G#                          Cm
Tonight she’s my guide as I go on alone
         G         Cm
With the music up above


Cm G7 C Fm 
G# Cm G Cm

Real good job -- just one thing; I thought maybe Cm and G# should be switched in the third line of the verse.

Thanks for the chords.

Hey, glad someone found it and was able to play through it! I struggled with getting the chords and verses lined up. I need to take a tab publishin 101 class.

As for the chord swapping, yeah I can see that. I think it sounds nice either way, and my ear can't quite differentiate, but it definitely works how you posted it. So play how it sounds best to you, I like both. Thanks for checking this tab out.

Great tab!

I agree with wikkik that Cm and G# should be swapped.
Apart from that, pretty spot on.
