Intro:
    Dm  Bb  Gm  C -x2-
    F   Bb  Gm  C


Dm                           C  F
Things were all good yesterday 
                                 C  Bb
And then the devil took your memory 
                          F      Bb
And if you fell to your death today, 
                                    Dm
I hope that heaven is your resting place 


Dm                                    C  F
I heard the doctors put your chest in pain
                                   C Bb 
then that could've been the medicine
                                  C 
And now you're lying in the bed again
C
Either way I'll cry with the rest of them

Pre-Chorus:
Bb      F         Dm
And my father told me son
F
It's not his fault he doesn't know your face
Bb         F            Dm
And you're not the only one
            Bb       F            C
Although my grandma used to say, he used to see

Chorus:
Dm                   Bb
Darling hold me in arms the way you did last night
Gm            C
And your life inside, a little while with you more 
Dm                     Bb
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up 
Gm                     C
And we're wrapped in light, in life and love


Dm                       Bb
Put your open lips on mine, slowly let them shut
Gm                   C
for they're designed to be together 
Dm                      Bb
With your body next to mine our hearts will beat as one
Gm             C
And we'll set alight, we're afire love

Interlude: F  Gm  Bb  C

Verse:
Dm                           C  F
Things were all good yesterday
                                      C  Bb
And then the devil took your breath away
                           F Bb
And now we're left here in pain 
                                       Dm
Black suit black tie standing in the rain


Dm                           C F 
And now my family is one again 
                                             C Bb
Stapled together with the strangers and a friend
                                           C
Came to my mind I should paint it with a pen 
C
Six years old I remember when 

Pre-Chorus:
Bb      F         Dm
And my father told me son
F
It's not his fault he doesn't know your face
Bb         F            Dm
And you're not the only one
            Bb       F            C
Although my grandma used to say, he used to see

Chorus:
Dm                   Bb
Darling hold me in arms the way you did last night
Gm            C
And your life inside, a little while with you more 
Dm                     Bb
I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up 
Gm                     C
And we're wrapped in light, in life and love


Dm                       Bb
Put your open lips on mine, slowly let them shut
Gm                   C
for they're designed to be together 
Dm                      Bb
With your body next to mine our hearts will beat as one
Gm             C
And we'll set alight, we're afire love

Interlude: Dm  Bb  Gm  C

Dm                        Bb
My father, and all of my family 
                 Gm                  C
rise from their seats to sing hallelujah
       Dm                     Bb
And my brother and all of my family 
                Gm                   C
rise from their seats to sing hallelujah -x2-
