Intro: Bm

Verse:
D                  G
Midnight falls over me,
A                 D
coming down like water.
D                  G
Midnight falls over me,
A                D
coming down like water.

D  G  A  D

D                              G
Throwing these ashes out to the sea,
A                  D
And it's taking so long.
D                                                     G
Breaking these bones, breaking these bones, won't grow old.
A                          D
It only hurts when you're gone.

Pre-Chorus:
       Em                        Bm
If you look for me, I'm never at home,
      Em                      D
If I ever call, you're never alone.

Chorus:
               G                A
And if there's nothing left for me to do,
             D                    G      Em
I'll write a song for you to come home to.
              A               D
Don't dig my grave 'till I'm gone.
              G                 A
They may be words you heard me say before,
          D               G        Em    A
But this time I hope they mean more,
D
In a song.

Verse:
D                  G
Midnight falls over me,
A                      D
I see the moon in your eyes.
D                      G
Just be here, just breathe,
A                      D
Just stay to see the sunrise.

Pre-Chorus:
        Em                   Bm
You may turn away, but I understand,
          Em                            D
Though we never touch, I'm holding your hand.

Chorus:
               G                A
And if there's nothing left for me to do,
             D                    G      Em
I'll write a song for you to come home to.

Don't dig my grave 'till I'm gone.
              G                 A
They may be words you heard me say before,
          D               G        Em    A
But this time I hope they mean more,
D
In a song.

Bridge:
         Em                A
So what good are the tears for?
           Em                D
Will they bring you back to my door?
      Em                A
What good at are the tears for,
            Em             G
When you're half a world away?

            Em         A
This isn't what I left for,
        Em             D
I can feel my heart beating me,
          Em               A
So what good are the tears for,
             G         D       G
When you're lonely?

A    D
Ohhhh

Chorus:
               G                A
And if there's nothing left for me to do,
             D                    G      Em
You're like a song for me to come home to.
              A               D
Don't dig my grave 'till I'm gone.
                   G                 A
Though there are many men who've come before,
          D               G        Em    A
I wanna let you know you've meant more,
D
In a song.

               G                A
And if there's nothing left for me to do,
             D                    G      Em
I'll write a song for you to come home to.
              A               D
Don't dig my grave 'till I'm gone.
              G                 A
They may be words you heard me say before,
          D               G      Em    A
But this time I hope they mean more,
D
In a song.

Midnight falls over me,
A                  D
Coming down like water.
