Verse 1:

        D                  G                           Cadd9                     F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

love shines a light, I'll be your winners cup and I'll be looking for the one who cut you up,

you're not having me I know the skies are mean and I'll be looking for the way to free you.


Chorus 1:

                 F (6)                                                                           C (2)

'Cause I'm fixing holes, the ones you brake up coming from your drive,

and the hands that rocks you cuts you up like lyrics of your life


Repeat Intro

I'm gonna let you pass on another pass, I wanna be the king while you zig zag,

          D                  G                                 Cadd9           F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

on a holy road like Kain from Kung Foo, how high can you kiss the sun?


Chorus 2:

   F (6)                                                                 C (2)

Hang on to your hopes my darlin' don't let it slip away

              F (6)                                                                             C (2)
And the hand that holds you keeps you warm and helps you live today



                     Am   Em          Fmaj7        (C)

Love shines a light,     and it takes and it hurts, I know

     Am   Em       Fmaj7     (C)

I'm right,   I can bend till I burst,

       Am              Em             Fmaj7          (C)

And love shines a light and repays you with us

        G (4)
Yeah too right I'm gonna pledge my time 'til the day I die
