Intro: Dm

Verse:
Dm
Be careful making wishes in the dark
Bb
Can't be sure when they've hit their mark
Dm
Besides in the meantime
         Bb
I'm just dreaming of tearing you apart
          Dm
Im in the details with the devil
           Bb
So now the world can never get me on my level
       Dm
I just got to get you out of the cage
                         Bb
I'm a young lovers rage, gonna need a spark to ignite

Dm -hold-
My songs know what you did in the dark

Chorus -x2-:
             Dm
So light 'em up,
         Bb
Light em up
         F
Light em up
          C
I'm on fire!

Verse:
        Dm
All the writers keep writing what they write
          Bb
Somewhere another pretty vein just dies
             Dm
I've got the scars from tomorrow and i wish you could see
                Bb
That you're the antidote to everything except for me
           Dm
a constellation of tears on your lashes
     Bb                               -mute-
Burn everything you love, then burn the ashes
Dm
In the end everything collides
             Bb
My childhood spat back the monster that you see

Dm -hold-
My songs know what you did in the dark

Chorus -x2-:
             Dm
So light 'em up,
         Bb
Light em up
         F
Light em up
          C
I'm on fire!

-mute-
My songs know what you did in the dark
Dm -hold-
My songs know what you did in the dark

Chorus -x2-:
             Dm
So light 'em up,
         Bb
Light em up
         F
Light em up
          C
I'm on fire!

    THis Is AwEsOme

  2. These cords are spot on, but if someone is listening and playing along with the song you repeat the chords used in the chorus twice after each chorus during the “Oh’s”

  3. R_May_2002

    -5 is easier

  4. if you want it to sound cool, you can half the c and play an A aswell. i can’t really explain it, but if you figure it out, it was just a suggestion! Great tab!!

  5. If you want to play the parts for the ohs inbetween the verses and stuff you can go Dm Bb F C and it sounds great!

  6. just2tucker

    love this song great for the uke

  7. Luna Eclipse

    Absolutely love this! Using it for a cover that’s a lot more low-key than the original. Sounds awesome on the uke. :)
