Intro: Em   G   C   D


Em      G       C         D
    So long to all my friends,
      Em       G        C     D
Every one of them met tragic ends,
Em       G     C       D
   With every passing day,
        Em    G    C      D
I'd be lying if I didn’t say,
        C               D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
That I miss them all tonight
             C             D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
And if they only knew what I would say


   Em       G       C     D
If I could be with you tonight
         Em           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       C                 D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes
Em       G         C         D
    One day, I'll lose this fight
       Em          G            C
As we fade in the dark, just remember
         D                Em     G     C    D
you will always burn as bright


Em          G         C       D
     Be strong, and hold my hand.
          Em       G          C      D
Time, it comes for us, you'll understand.
Em          G       C     D
     We'll say goodbye today,
           Em    G      C         D
And we're sorry how it ends this way
         C             D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
If you promise not to cry
        C                 D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4  -  D  -  Dsus4
I will tell you just what I would say


   Em       G       C     D
If I could be with you tonight
         Em           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       C                 D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes
Em        G        C         D
    I'll fail and lose this fight
       Em          G            C
Never fade in the dark, just remember
         D
you will always burn as bright
C     D
           The light behind your eyes...
C     D
           the light behind your...


Em                 D
     Sometimes we must grow stronger and
C                    G
     You can't be stronger in the dark.
Em                   D       C                     D
     When I'm here,      no longer, you must be stronger, and


   Em      G        C     D
If I could be with you tonight,
         Em           G
I would sing you to sleep,
       C                 D
Never let them take the light behind your eyes.
Em          G         C         D
     I've failed and lost this fight,
       Em          G
Never fade in the dark,
        C              D
Just remember you will always burn as bright.


C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes
C     D
           the light behind your eyes

I did down, down up down. It’s easier for me because the only other song I know is riptide.

Also, for the d to dsus4, I simply did quarter notes. (Down, down, down, down, etc)

is it still 2005

seems appropriate for todays happenings to be playing this at 11 o’clock at night, happy ieroween, and happy new mcr day, also slowly get quieter on the last bit, and on the last line do one final downward strum before really quietly whisper singing the line, try not to die killjoys

With tempo, I normally just listen to the song and make a clicking sound in my head enough that it forces me to follow it.

+5 is much easier for me, and it suits my voice better. I love this song and I’m so glad that I can learn it.
