The Light (Part II)

Mason Jennings

 

/ C* - - - / - - - - /

 

C*

And regardless, in the evening
A light is thrown by the setting sun
It speeds along this vast familiar
And silently crosses everyone

 

Chorus:

Am                         F
It's the light that's changing

G                            C
It's the light that's changing

Am                          F
It's the light that's changing

G                     C
It's only the light

 

C*
Across the gardens, across the schoolyards
Across the chapels where lovers have leapt
Across the table in our old kitchen
Across the cities where our future slept


Chorus

 

                          Am
What can I do to defy you

F                         C
What can I do to deny you

                                            Am
'cause I want no part of this breaking

               F                                 G
This is a hurtful mistake you are making

     C                                           Am
And to me this love was true and shining

F                                         C
These years were real and defining

                                                  Am
Please don't forget how much I meant to you

F                                       G
When you are redefined by someone new

 

C*
Across what's left of these old places
Across the playgrounds where old friends play
Across the lines on familiar faces
Across the nothing that we say

 

Am                         F
It's the light that's breaking

G                            C
It's the light that's breaking

Am                          F
It's the light that's breaking

G                   
It's only the light
