Intro: / Dm - Am - / F - C - / x2


Dm                          Am

I remember tears streaming down your face

        F                        C

When I said, I'll never let you go

     Dm                Am                  F     C

When all those shadows almost killed your light

Dm          Am              F              C

I remember you said, Don't leave me here alone

    G (1)                                  F (1)

But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight



F (1)             C           G

  Just close your eyes   the sun is going

F (1)               C        G

down   You'll be alright  No one can hurt you now

F (1)                C      G

now    Come morning light  You and I'll be

Am     C/G    D7sus2/F# (1)

Don't you dare look out your window

Darling everything's on fire

The war outside our door keeps raging on

Dm       Am      F     C

Hold on to this lullabye

G (1)                  F (2)

Even when the music's gone.   Gone.
