A5 {no guitar}                     G5 {no guitar} 
Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come 
        D5 {no guitar}                    A5 {no guitar} 
Fasten up your earthly burdens, you have just begun 
 

A5    A5    A5    A5  
{instrumental} 
 

       A5                                          
In the ink of an eye I saw you bleed, through the thunder I could hear    you scream 
G5                           D5 
Solid to the air I breathe, open-eyed and fast asleep 
 A5                          
Falling softly as the rain, no footsteps ringing in your ears 
G5                             D5 
Ragged down worn to the skin, warrior raging, have no fear 
 

  A5                             G5 
Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come 
        D5                                A5       A5  
Fasten up your earthly burdens, you have just begun 
 
I'm kneeling down with broken prayers, hearts and bones from days of youth 

Restless with an angel's wing, I dig a grave to bury you 

No feet to fall, you need no ground, allowed to glide right through the sun 

Released from circles guarded tight, now we all are chosen ones 
 

  A5                             G5 
Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come 
        D5                                A5  
Fasten up your earthly burdens, you have just begun 
 

  A5 {hold}                      G5 {hold} 
Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come 
        D5 {hold}                         A5       A5    A5    A5 
Fasten up your earthly burdens, you have just begun 
 
In the ink of an eye I saw you bleed, through the thunder I could hear    you scream 

Solid to the air I breathe, open-eyed and fast asleep 

Falling softly as the rain, no footsteps ringing in your ears 

Ragged down worn to the skin, warrior raging, have no fear 
 
Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come 

Fasten up your earthly burdens, you have just begun 

Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come 

 (In the ink of an eye I saw you bleed, through the thunder I could hear...) 

Fasten up your earthly burdens, you have just begun 

 (Solid to the air I breathe, open-eyed and fast asleep) 

Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come 

 (No feet to fall, you need no ground, allowed to glide right through the sun) 

Fasten up your earthly burdens, you have just begun 

 (Released from circles guarded tight, now we all are chosen ones) 

Now we all are chosen ones, but now the night has come 

 (Secure yourself to heaven, hold on tight, the night has come) 
  D5                                  A5 {hold} 
Released from circles guarded tight, now we all are chosen ones 
 (Fasten up your earthly burdens,    now we all are chosen ones) 
 
 
 
TAB: 
 
This tab is for the instrumental part right after the vocal/organ intro. 
 
The D's and U's under the chord names are Amy's strumming part; D for down, 
U for up.  Uppercase D's and U's are accented more than lowercase d's and u's.
