Intro: G

G   C     D   G
And after the storm,
  G       C      D         G
I run and run as the rains come
    D      C   G      D
And I look up, I look up,
G     D         C      G
on my knees and out of luck,
C      D
I look up.


G         C      D         G
Night has always pushed up day
    G         C       D   G
You must know life to see decay
    D       C    G       D
But I won't rot, I won't rot
G        D        C        G
Not this mind and not this heart,
C       D
I won't rot.


G     C        D      Em
And I took you by the hand
    C        G
And we stood tall,
G     C        D       Em
And remembered our own land,
     C        G
What we lived for.


    C                 Em           G                 G
And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
    C             Em         G                       G
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
    C         Em       G                 G
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
     C             Em        G               G
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Interlude: G  C  D  G

    G     C        D      G
And now I cling to what I knew
  G   C       D        G
I saw exactly what was true
    D     C
But oh no more.
       G     D
That's why I hold,
       G     D         C     G
That's why I hold with all I have.
       C     D
That's why I hold.


G   C      D   Em        C       G
And I will die alone and be left there.
G      C          D       Em       
Well I guess I'll just go home,
   C         G
Oh God knows where.
G       C        D       Em       C      G
Because death is just so full and man so small.
G        C         D      Em         C      G
Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before.


    C                 Em           G                 G
And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
    C             Em         G                       G
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
    C         Em       G                 G
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
     C             Em        G               G
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.


    C                 Em           G                 G
And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
    C             Em         G                       G
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
    C         Em       G                 G
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
     C             Em        G               G
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

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.
