Verse:
        A                     A 
I can't sleep tonight, wide awake and so confused
      A7                       D
Everything's in line, but I am bruised
         A                       A 
I need a voice to echo, I need a light to take me home
               A7          D
I kinda need a hero, is it you?

Pre-Chorus:
                Gbm                                  E
I never see the forest for the trees, I could really use your melody
           A7                                         D
Baby I'm a little blind, I think it's time for you to find me

Can you be my Nightingale, sing to me I know you're there.
D               Gbm     D                    Gbm
You could be my sanity, bring me peace, sing me to sleep.
D   E      Gbm   E
Say you'll be my Nightingale

Verse:
         A                  A 
Somebody speak to me, cause im feeling like hell
            A7             D
Need you to answer me, I'm overwhelmed
         A                       A 
I need a voice to echo, I need a light to take me home
         A7                     D
I need a star to follow, I dont know

Pre-Chorus:
                Gbm                                  E

           A7                                  D
Baby I'm a little blind, I think it's time for you to find me

Bridge:
                      Gbm        A   E
I don't know what I'd do without you
                      Gbm           A
Your words are like a whisper, come through
                  Gbm          A            E
As long as you're with me here tonight, I'm good
