A
 A spark soaring down
D                        
 Through the pouring rain
E               Gbm            D
 And restoring life to the lighthouse
A                  D            
 A slow motion wave on the ocean 
  E              Gbm        D
Stirs my emotion up like a raincloud 


A               D
 When did the sky turn black
E                   Gbm        D   -A   Gbm D-
 And when will the light come back
 

A                   D
 A cab driver turned to skydiver 
    E             Gbm      D
Then to survivor dying to break down 
A                   D
 A blood brother surrogate mother 
  E                 Gbm           D 
Hugging each other, crying their eyes out 


Gbm               D             
  When did the sky turn black 
E                   Gbm        D
 And when will the light come back 


A                 D               
 I'm ecstatic like a drug addict 
  E                
Locked in the attic
  Gbm             D 
Strung out and spellbound


Bm                          D
  I fought all through the night 
Gbm             E
  Oh oh, but I made it alive 
Bm          D
  The sun's starting to rise 
Gbm                 E
  Oh oh, these are beautiful times 


Bm                 D          Gbm
  This fight of my life is so hard
   E        Bm
So hard, so hard 
        A   
But I'm gonna survive
D                 E 
 Oh oh, these are beautiful times 

Interlude -x2-: Bm  Gbm  E 

A
 a bad feeling
   D                       
Burned through the ceiling
 E                
Leaving my healing
Gbm              D 
Heart with a new scar
A  
 A dead fire 
 D                  
Rose and rose higher
 E             
Like a vampire
Gbm             D 
Up from the graveyard 


Gbm               D             
  When did the sky turn black 
E                   Gbm        D
 And when will the light come back 


A               D
 We all suffer but we recover 
 E                Gbm           D
Just to discover life where we all are 


Bm                          D
  I fought all through the night 
Gbm             E
  Oh oh, but I made it alive 
Bm          D
  The sun's starting to rise 
Gbm                 E
  Oh oh, these are beautiful times 

Bm                 D          Gbm
  This fight of my life is so hard
   E        Bm
So hard, so hard 
        A             -x2-
But I'm gonna survive
D                 E 
 Oh oh, these are beautiful times 


A                    D
 My heart's burning bad
                   E
And it's turning black
                 Gbm           D
But I'm learning how to be stronger 
A               D                
 And sincerely I love you dearly
 E                   Gbm        D                  
Oh but I'm clearly destined to wander

  1. Defiantly not the easiest song, but I love it none the less.

    A year ago I could only play it at +3. Now I’m enjoying it at 0! Practice really does make perfect!
