This song has a very "Disarm-y" feel. It is downtuned half a step.

I have labelled these as Figs because the order is quite complicated, there
is no definite verse/chorus pattern. Strumming patterns and chord changes
are easy so I haven=92t bothered illustrating it.

Verse 1: with Rhy Fig 1
Time is never time at all
you can never ever leave without leaving a piece
of youth
and our lives are forever changed
we will never be the same
the more you change the more you feel
believe, believe in me, believe
[Am]that life can change, [C]that you're not stuck in vain[G] [D] [Em]
[Am]we're not the same, we[C]'re different tonight
Chorus:
[C]ton[B]igh[D]t, so bright
tonight
[G]And you know you're never sure
but you're sure you could be right
[Em]if you held yourself up to the light
[G]and the embers never fade in your city by the lake
[Em]the place where you were born
with Rhy Fig 1 ( omit the 3rd Bar)
believe, believe in me, believe
[Am]in the resolute [C]urgency of now[G] [D] [Em]
[Am]and if you believe there's [C]not a chance tonight
[C]ton[B]ight[D], so bright
[C]toni[B]ght[D] [G] [D] [Em]
[Am]we'll crucify the [C]insincere ton[G]ight[D] [Em]
Am C G D Em
we'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
[Am]we'll find a way to o[C]ffer up the nigh[G]t ton[D]ight[Em]
[Am]the indescribable mom[C]ents of your li[G]fe to[D]night[Em]
[Am]the impossible is p[C]ossible t[G]onigh[D]t[Em]
if you be[Am]lieve in me as I b[C]elieve in you , tonight
End song with tonight tonight a few times while playing Rhy Fig 1(omit 3rd)
The last chords are G D Em. I find that you get a more dramatic exit
if you use D/F# instead of D. Enjoy. Alex Spitzer
