[INTRO] G D Am Em Dsus4 D
[VERSE]
G                     D
Through the driving rain
                Am
I have lost the words
                     Em
To piece us back together
     D                G
To tell you how it hurts
                            D
'Cause lately we've been breaking
                   Am
All we've built so far
                            Em
And I'm tired of sitting waiting
  D           C
Alone in the dark

[PRE-CHORUS]
          Em    D  Am          C
There's still a way to make it right
       Em          Dsus4      G
We'll find the strength this time

[CHORUS]
G                D
And pull back this veil
D                Am
Turn night into day
Am          Em            D                        G
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?
G              D
Pour oil on these flames
              Am
Speed up my heart again
            Em           D                        C D
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?

[VERSE]
G                D
Round we go in circles
D                        Am
Does it have to be this hard?
Am                  Em
We can stop the fighting
    D                  C
If you let down your guard

[PRE-CHORUS]
          Em    D  Am          C
There's still a way to make it right
       Em          Dsus4      G
We'll find the strength this time

[CHORUS]
G                D
And pull back this veil
D                Am
Turn night into day
Am          Em            D                        G
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?
G              D
Pour oil on these flames
              Am
Speed up my heart again
            Em           D                        Am
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?

[BRIDGE]
 Am                      Em
So come on, come on, come on
              D            C
We've been living in the shadows too long
C              Em         D
So come on, come on, come on

[CHORUS]
G                D
Just pull back this veil
D                Am
Turn night into day
Am          Em            D                        G
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?
G              D
Pour oil on these flames
              Am
Speed up my heart again
            Em           D                        G
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?
G                D
Just pull back this veil
D                Am
Turn night into day
Am          Em            D                        G
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?
G              D
Pour oil on these flames
              Am
Speed up my heart again
            Em           D                        C
Don't you know you're standing in the way of the light?
          D                       G
You're standing in the way of the light
