(Then dissolve the time signature and run amok on the note (A).)
(In this case it's easier to just write the chords over the lyrics.)
There was no [Bm]light
A#o Bm *A#o = A#m6-5 (x12023)
Only the white night
First born when the [F#m]sun
A#o Bm
Screamed her eyes wide o- pen
Daylight in the f[Bm]ields
A#o Bm
Daylight moun-tains
Fire kisses the [F#m]floor
A#o Bm
Of the lakes and makes sha-dows

In these final verses (from 4:20) there's only the chord A.
Now I cry for daylight
Daylight and the sun
Now I cry for daylight
Daylight everyone
Daylight in my heart
Daylight in the trees
Daylight kissing everything
She can see
There was no light
Only the white night
First born when the sun
Screamed her eyes wide open
Daylight in the fields
Daylight mountains
Fire kisses the floor
Of the lakes and makes shadows
Ooh, your dream
Here on the water
Warm the sand
The seagulls calling
Kissed by kindness
You gave me this
Your fire becomes a kiss

Jon Sebastian Frederiksen - 17th /March /10
