A Candle's Fire  Beirut

I believe you have to tune the guitar in Eb.. I'm not too sure, try to play along with
the song!
Intro: C, D, G, C
[C] [D] [G] 
Oh,[C] light a candle's fire, it carries our good name
What would you ask a campfi[C]re?[D]
It sca[G]res me just the same[C]
And you, you[C]'ve had it all along[D]
An end[G]less need for games[C]
[C] [D] [G] 
Just d[C]on't forget, a candle's fire is only just a flame
C, D, G, C
(same as the first verse)
I hit certain from afar, failed to pull my weight
But you were light, we traveled through the fall
To arrive at our front gate
Tonight, we rest beside the fire
A smile upon your face
Just don't forget, a candle's fire is only just a flame
then the verse ends on C, it keeps it going for a while, then G.. and then the kick-ass
epic brasses part should be something like this:
[Am] If I had known[D], that to carry on t[G]hat way[C]
[Am] It wouldn't show in [D]the creases on you[G]r face[C]
[Am] If you should go, wou[D]ld you carry on my nam[G]e?[C]
[Am] [D] [G] 
Jus[C]t let it blow, and the blah blah blah blah blaaah(what does he say??)
then Am, D, G, C till the end (note: if the second part doesn't sound right to your ear,
play C chords instead of Am chords)
I hope you'll find this useful!
