[Intro]
Em  A  D  G/B  Em  A  D


[Verse]
D                                       G/B
Don't get down when the cavalry doesn't arrive
               Em                              D
That's only in Hollywood and they didn't get it right
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way


[Verse]
D                               G/B
The air is colder closer to the ground
          Em                     D
Find your footing and leave your doubts
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way


[Verse]
D                                   G/B
Promise the world to each other, to obey
              Em                      D
In the end it matters, it's worth the fight
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way


[Verse]
D                                       G/B
We all move mountains that stand in the way
             Em                        D
Just part of being here, making things right
D                                   Em
There will be damage, there will be hell to pay
            A                     D
Light after darkness, that is the way
