Intro: G  D  Em

Em          G        D           Em
   One went out at a bus-stop in Edinburgh
         G         D       Em
One went out in an English park
         G        D                Em
One went out in a night club, when I was fifteen
G      D            Em
Little lights in my heart


         G          D          Em
One went out when I lied to my mother
         G              D              Em
Said the cigarettes she found were not mine
         G          D
One went out within me
      Em
Now I smoke like a chimney
             G            D        Em
It's getting dark in this heart of mine
             G            D        Em
It's getting dark in this heart of mine


D
We're born with millions
   G             D              C
Of little lights shining in the dark
         Em          D
And they show us the way
               G              D                 C
One lights up, every time you feel love in your heart
    Em           D
One dies when it moves away


         G          D               Em
One went out in the back streets of Manchester
         G         D          Em
One went out in an airport in Spain
         G            D
One went out, have no doubt
            Em
When I grew up and moved out
       G               D           Em
Of the place where the boy used to play


         G              D           Em
One went out when uncle Ben got his tumor
           G          D       Em
We used to fish and I fish no more
          G        D
Though we will not return
       Em
I know one still burns
     G                   D          Em
On a fishing boat of the New Jersey Shore
     G                   D          Em
On a fishing boat of the New Jersey Shore


D
We're born with millions
   G             D              C
Of little lights shining in the dark
         Em          D
And they show us the way
               G              D                 C
One lights up, every time you feel love in your heart
    Em           D
One dies when it moves away


D
We're born with millions
   G             D              C
Of little lights shining in our hearts
         Em            D
And they die along the way
                         G
Till we're old and we're cold
          D            C
And we're lying in the dark
               Em               D
'Cause they'll all burn out one day
G           D        Em
They'll all burn out one day
       G           D        Em
Oh oh, they'll all burn out one day
G           D        Em
They'll all burn out one day
