- Dbm -     Abm       Gb           E           Dbm
I had a way then losing it all on my own 
         Abm        Gb                       E           Dbm
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown 
        Abm              Gb      E              Dbm          
And I'm not sleeping now the dark is too hard to beat
        Abm             Gb        E             Dbm
And I'm not keeping now the strength I need to push me 
 
Chorus:                
    Abm                     Gb
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone 
     E                      Dbm
You shine It when I'm alone
            Abm               Gb 
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong 
    E                        Dbm
And dreaming when they're gone 
               Abm                        Gb
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home 
E                    Dbm
Calling, calling, calling home 
             Abm                  Gb
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone 
    E                 Dbm
You shine It when I'm alone 


Abm       Gb        E           Dbm
Noises, I play within my head 
         Abm           Gb                   E          Dbm
Touch my own skin and hope that I'm still breathing 
    Abm               Gb       E               Dbm
And I think back to when my brother and my sister slept
Abm              Gb      E              Dbm
in an unlocked place the only time I feel safe 
  
           Abm                  Gb
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone 
    E                Dbm
You shine It when I'm alone
         Abm               Gb
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong 
    E                    Dbm
And dreaming when they're gone 
               Abm                        Gb
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home 
  E                       Dbm
Calling, calling, calling home 
             Abm                  Gb
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone 
    E                 Dbm
You shine It when I'm alone

You shine It when I'm alone

  1. +1 is pretty simple if you don’t want to do -4 for higher voices

  2. Nice song can learn

  3. It is way easier if you go down 4 half steps.

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.
