lyrics

TELL ME THERE'S A LIGHT

verse: C Em x3 F G
chorus: C Em F F x2 C Em F Dm Dm G G

long lost highway / come back someday
say what you want to say / when you're back
rain fall curtains / we were best friends
i'm not certain / you'll come back.

[chorus]
tell me there's a light,
shining out for us tonight
tell me there's a light
for you...for you & i

i am submerged / there's an ocean on the earth
& it's heavy & it hurts / & it takes its toll
so give back an ocean / i know you've been broken
& all that's unspoken / & still i stole
your heart...

[ch] x2
