INTRO: Bbm, Ab, F#, F    2x
       C#, Bbm           2x

VERSE:
C#                   
Fight the fight alone
Bbm                   
When the world is full of victims
C#                   
Dims a fading light
       Bbm                   
In our souls
C#                   
Leave the peace alone
Bbm                   
How we all are slowly changing
C#                   
Dims a fading light
       Bbm                   
In our Souls
 
                  
PRE-CHORUS:
   Ab         F#           Bbm
In my opinion seeing is to know
    Ab               
the things we hold
    F#              Bbm 
are always first to go
    Ab               
and who?s to say
   F#            F    
we won?t end up alone
 
                  
CHORUS:
                    C#
On broken wings I?m falling
                Ab/C   
and it won?t be long
                  Bbm
The skin on me is burning
                    F#
By the fires of the sun
                     C#
On skinned knees I?m bleeding
                Ab/C   
and it won?t be long
                      Bbm
I?ve got to find that meaning
                   F#
I?ll search for so long

C#, Bbm  2x 
                  
VERSE:
C#                   
Cry ourselves to sleep
Bbm                   
We will sleep alone forever
C#                   
Will you lay me down
       Bbm            
In the same place with all I love
C#                   
Mend the broken homes
Bbm                   
Care for them
                   
they are our brothers
C#                           Bbm
Save the fading light in our souls
                   
   Ab         F#           Bbm
In my opinion seeing is to know
Ab                   
What you give
     F#           Bbm   
will always carry you
    Ab               
And who?s to say
   F#               F
we won?t survive it too
                   

CHORUS:
                    C#
On broken wings I?m falling
                Ab/C   
and it won?t be long
                  Bbm
The skin on me is burning
                    F#
By the fires of the sun
                     C#
On skinned knees I?m bleeding
                Ab/C   
and it won?t be long
                      Bbm
I?ve got to find that meaning
                   F#
I?ll search for so long   
                   

Ab                   
Set A
     F#              
free all
Bbm                   
Relying on their will
           Ab         F#
to make me all that I am
                 Bbm 
and all that I?ll be
Ab                   
Set A
     F#              
free all
Bbm                   
Will fall between the cracks
                  Ab        F#
with memories of all that I am
                  F 
and all that I?ll be
                   

CHORUS:
                    C#
On broken wings I?m falling
                Ab/C   
and it won?t be long
                  Bbm
The skin on me is burning
                    F#
By the fires of the sun
                     C#
On skinned knees I?m bleeding
                Ab/C   
and it won?t be long
                      Bbm
I?ve got to find that meaning
                   F#
I?ll search for so long
