    I’m so afraid to love you, I’m more afraid to lose

      G                 C                       D          (Em)

    Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose

    G                          C                 D (1)

    Once there was a darkness, a deep and endless night

    G                            C                  D (1)

    You gave me everything you had, oh, you gave me life
