[Intro]
Em  D  C  Am


[Verse]
        Em       D         C            Am
I had a way then losing it all on my own
        Em        D                       C           Am
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown
    Em               D       C                Am
And I'm not sleeping now the dark is too hard to beat
    Em              D        C                 Am
And I'm not keeping now the strength I need to push me


[Chorus]
             Em                  D
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    C                  Am
You shine it when I'm alone
         Em               D
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
    C                     Am
And dreaming when they're gone
               Em                D
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
C                 Am
Calling, calling, calling home
             Em                  D
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    C                  Am~
You shine it when I'm alone


[Verse]
Em    D            C          Am
Noises, I play within my head
         Em      D                   C              Am
Touch my own skin and hope that I'm still breathing
    Em              D       C              Am
And I think back to when my brother and my sister slept
Em             D         C           Am
in an unlocked place the only time I feel safe


[Chorus]
             Em                  D
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    C                  Am
You shine it when I'm alone
         Em               D
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
    C                     Am
And dreaming when they're gone
               Em                D
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
C                 Am
Calling, calling, calling home
             Em                  D
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    C                  Am~
You shine it when I'm alone


[Interlude]
Em  D  C  Am
Em    D    C  \(Am)
Home, home


[Chorus]
             Em                  D
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    C                  Am
You shine it when I'm alone
         Em               D
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
    C                     Am
And dreaming when they're gone
               Em                D
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
C                 Am
Calling, calling, calling home
             Em                  D
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    C                  Am~
You shine it when I'm alone
