VERSE
         F
Tell you a story and it starts with time
E
Moves to how you live, and learn how to die
         C             C2                         G
Another phase in this world that brings death to life
   F
So don't believe in everything you see
E
Because what you want might not be what you need
         C         C2                        G
Hold your breath, jump with me and we'll survive
F         E                                 G      G2   G3   G4
Cause you are the song that leads me to the light
 
    CHORUS:
C3              G5            C3           F2
Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
 D4      D                 D2       F4
Alone is the street where you found me
C3                 G5
Scared of what's behind you
    C3                  F2
And scared of what's in front
 D4                 D
Live with what you have now
             D2        F4
And make the best of what's to come
 
    INTRO: N/A
 
    VERSE:
  F
Tell me a story long and true
                  E
We aren't what we say
We are what we do
        C                 C2                       G
Just pieces of a puzzle to find where we stand just to confused
F               E                              G      G2   G3   G4
So you are the moon that pulls me through the night
 
    CHORUS:
C3              G5            C3           F2
Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
 D4      D                 D2       F4
Alone is the street where you found me
C3                 G5
Scared of what's behind you
    C3                  F2
And scared of what's in front
 D4                 D
Live with what you have now
             D2        F4
And make the best of what's to come
 
THE INTERLUDE HERE IS THE SAME AS THE CHORUS. REPEAT 2X
 
   CHORUS AGAIN:
 C3              G5            C3           F2
Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
 D4      D                 D2       F4
Alone is the street where you found me
C3                 G5
Scared of what's behind you
    C3                  F2
And scared of what's in front
 D4                 D
Live with what you have now
             D2        F4
And make the best of what's to come
 
    OUTRO:
F E   X2
 
C4   D2      A   X4
 
C4  D2  A       C4   D2   A
So you are the sun that leads me,
C4  D2  A      C4  D2     A
You are the moon that pulls me, 
C4  D2  A       C4   D2   A
So you are the sun that leads me,
C4  D2  A      C4  D2     A
You are the moon that pulls me
 
C4   D2      A
(Keep playing until song fades out)
