Verse 1:
    C
I'm tired
   Em              D
Of tending to this fire
     Bm                  C
I've used up all I've collected
Em               D     Bm
I have singed my hands
     C
It's glowing
Em            D
Embers barely showing
Bm                   C
Proof of life in the shadows
Em            D     Bm
Dancing on my plans

Chorus:
                    C      Em
They know that it's almost
                    D        Bm
They know that it's almost over
                    C      Em
They know that it's almost
                    D        Bm

Verse 2:
    C
The burning
   Em             D
Is so low it's concerning
       Bm                     C
'Cause they know that when it goes out
Em               D   Bm
It's a glorious gone
     C
It's only
Em               D
Time before they show me
Bm              C
Why no one ever comes back
     Em             D     Bm
With details from beyond

Chorus:
                    C      Em

Bridge:
   C     Em               D    Bm

Verse 3:
C
Last year
  Em               D
I needed change of pace
         Bm               C
Couldn't take the pace of change
Em          D   Bm
Moving hastily
    C
But this year
Em                  D
Though I'm far from home
   Bm              C
In TRENCH I'm not alone
      Em           D   Bm
These faces facing me
