Intro: B

Verse 1:
B                        E                B
Good morning sunshine, I hope that you're well
B                        E                B
Honey I missed you, last night when night fell
B                              E           B
You should know, sunshine, you brighten my day
B                                  E       B
The world gets so dark, love, when you go away

Pre-Chorus:
  Abm                      E                                                 
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder
   Gb
But I can't help but wonder

Chorus:
B                        E                
If the darkness came tomorrow,
        Abm            Gb
Could I keep you in my mind?
B                        E                
When you rise up let me follow
             B     
Just for the chance
   E             B
To stand in your light

Verse 2:
B                          E                 B
Good morning sunshine, I'm glad you're still here
B                            E                B
My darling it's hard when my friends can't be near
B                      E             B
Till I can be there to show them I'm true
B                                E         B
I hope what they're seeing is as bright as you

Pre-Chorus:
  Abm                      E                                                 
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder
   Gb
But I can't help but wonder

Chorus:
B                        E                
If the darkness came tomorrow,
        Abm            Gb
Could I keep you in my mind?
B                        E                
When you rise up let me follow
              B     
Just one more chance

To stand in your light

Could I keep you in my mind?

When you rise up let me follow
              B     
Just one more chance
   E             B
To stand in your light

To stand in your light

Verse 3:
B                           E                B
Good morning sunshine, I wish for your heart
B                           E                B
There's no point pretending that you won't burn out
B                           E                B
But you're still a symbol to all that you meet
B                                E                B
'Coz you keep on shining, you're extraordinary

Chorus:
                     E
If the darkness came tomorrow,
        Abm            Gb
Could I keep you in my mind?

When you rise up let me follow

To stand in your light

  1. don’t believe everything you read on the internet Leia
    this song is still great and so is alex

    • I mean he literally admitted to cheating on carrie with 11 other girls, some of which were fans of his from youtube in videos he has deleted now because of cowardice (but you can find if you look into it)

  2. used to love playing this song but after finding out what he did it makes me feel guilty and gross

  3. em_rowe13

    if you transpose to +1 it’s a bit easier!

  4. it’s also “just for the chance” instead of “just one more chance” :)

  5. the lyrics are actually “where you rise, I’ll gladly follow” but other than that really useful, thank you (-:

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
