[Cadd9] [G] [Cadd9] [G] [D] [Cadd9]  
[Cadd9]Did you ever wake up in an hour of d[G]arkness,
[Cadd9]on a boat, prevailing winds at your [G]back.
[D]Sunny, faded picture from your m[Cadd9]emory.
[Cadd9]Jagged ridge for your p[G]ath.
[Cadd9]Were you lost inside the dream of another's ch[G]oosing?
[Cadd9]Did the rhythm of your days become your f[G]oe?
[D]Were countless hours of pity like a b[Cadd9]lanket
[Cadd9]that covered up the daylight from your s[G]oul?
[Cadd9] D Dsus4[G] Cadd[D]9 [Dsus4] G [Cadd9](two dow[G]n strokes)
Halleeeeeeeeeelujahhh, halleeeeeeeeeelujahhh, hallelujah.
[Cadd9]Were you hopeless at the thought of ever lov[G]ing?
[Cadd9]Were you hounded by the curses in the da[G]rk?
[D]Did you ever give until you just quit fe[Cadd9]eling;
[Cadd9]a castaway with a bottled he[G]art..
[Cadd9]Did you ever think the worst was bound to ha[G]ppen,
[Cadd9]the river rise and waters of the fl[G]ood..
[D]Yeah, Honesty, another name for Hea[Cadd9]rtache,
[Cadd9]and Fear, like starlight, shining from abo[G]ve.
[Cadd9] D Dsus4[G] Cadd[D]9 [Dsus4] G [Cadd9](two dow[G]n strokes)
Halleeeeeeeeeelujahhh, halleeeeeeeeeelujahhh, hallelujah.
(interlude) Cadd9 G D Dsus4
(strum once in the final verse)
[Cadd9]Are you in the eleventh hour of your de[G]speration?
[Cadd9]Can you dig through the tunnel and break through the ni[G]ght?
[D]Are you ready for the loosening of your [Cadd9]chains
[Cadd9]that kept you in the shadows in your ti[G]me..
[Cadd9] [G] [D] [Dsus4] [Cadd9] [G]  
H[D]al[Dsus4]leeeeee[Cadd9]eeeeluja[G]hhh, h[D]al[Dsus4]leeeeeeeeeelujahhh, halleeeeeeeeeelujahhh,
[Cadd9](two dow[G]n stro[D]ke[Dsus4]s)[Cadd9]
halleeeeeeeeeelujahhh, hallelujah.
