 [INTRO]


 . 
 [VERSE ONE]
 C                F
 Please open the door
  F              G                      E
 Nothing is different, we've been here before
    E            Am
 Pacing these halls
            D             Gsus4 G F C/E
 Trying to talk over the silence
      C                       F 
 And pride sticks out its tongue
    F             G                    E
 Laughs at the portrait that we've become
    E          Am               D
 Stuck in a frame, unable to change
           Gsus4 G F C/E
 I was wrong

 [CHORUS]
       C            F          G 
 I'm late, but I'm here right now
           E            Am
 Though I used to be romantic
       D     Gsus4 G
 I forgot somehow
            F  G      C 
 Time can make you blind
        F      G 
 But I see you now
            E             Am 
 As we're laying in the darkness
        D         Gsus4 G
 Did I wait too long
                F G       C F Gsus4 G F C/E
 To turn the lights back on?
 
 [VERSE TWO]
   C               F 
 Herе, stuck on a hill
 F            G                      E
 Outsiders inside the homе that we built
   E              Am
 The cold settles in
                    D           Gsus4 G F 
 It's been a long winter of indifference
                 C                 F 
 And maybe you love me, maybe you don't
               G                    E
 Maybe you'll learn to, maybe you won't
               Am                    D
 You've had enough, but I won't give up
    Gsus4 G F C/E
 On you

 I'm late, but I'm here right now
          E                   Am
 And I'm tryin' to find the magic
          D        Gsus4 G
 That we lost somehow
       F     G  C 
 Maybe I was blind
        F        G 
 But I see you now
             E              Am 
 As we're laying in the darkness
         D        Gsus4 G
 Did I wait too long
     F          G          Am 
 To turn the lights back on?

 I'm late, but I'm here right now
            E                   Am
 Is there still time for forgiveness?
            D
 Won't you tell me how?
  F         C/E    C 
 I can't read your mind
        F        G
 But I see you now
          E                Am 
 As we're layin' in the darkness
        D        Gsus4 G
 Did I wait too long
                F  G      C 
 To turn the lights back on?
  
 [OUTRO]

 I'm here right now

 Yes, I'm here right now

 Looking for forgiveness

 I can see as we're laying in the darkness

 Yeah, as we're laying in the darkness

 Did I wait too long

 To turn the lights back on?
