[G+]I can't light[G] no more of your d[F-C-F-C]arkness
[F]All my pictures[F] seem to fade to black and w[G-C/G-G-C/G]hite
[G+]I'm growing t[C/G]ired a[G7]nd time stands still b[F]efore[C] me [F-C-F-C-C7/E]
[F]Frozen her[F]e on the ladder of my [G+-C/G-G7]life
G+-C/G-G7                     C-F-C-F-C-C/E

Too late to save myself from falling
[F]I took a cha[A#/F-F]nce and changed your way of [F-C/G-G7]life
[G+]But you misre[C/G-G+]ad my meaning when I me[F-C-C-C/E]t you
[F]Closed the doo[F]r and left me bl[C/G]inded by the l[G-F/G]ight
[C]Don't let the sun go d[C/A#]own on me
[Am7]Although I search myself, it's always s[D7]omeone else I see
[C/G]I'd just allow a fragment of your l[F/G-G7]ife to wander [C]free[C/A#]
But l[F]osing everything is like the s[Dm7]un g[C-F]oing d[C/G]own [F/G]on m[C]e
[C/A#-F/A-C/G-F]G+           G                C(diddle a C/A# in here)C
I can't find, oh the right romantic line
[F]But see me onc[F]e and see the way I [G+-C/G-G7-F/G-F-G+]feel
[G+-G7-C/G]Don't discard me [G7]just because you th[C]ink I mean you [C-C/E]harm
[F]But these cuts I h[F]ave they need l[C/G]ove to help them h[G-G7]eal
[C]Don't let the sun go d[C/A#]own on me
[Am7]Although I search myself, it's always s[D7]omeone else I see
[C/G]I'd just allow a fragment of your l[F/G-G7]ife to wander [C]free[C/A#]
But l[F]osing everything is like the s[Dm7]un g[C-F]oing d[C/G]own [F/G]on m[C]e
[C/A#-F/A-G#-A#-C]
