G F F F

G    D         G    Gbm
Why should the fire die?
           Bm       G       D
My mom and dad kept theirs alive.
     G     D          G       Gbm      
It's early yet, don't say goodnight.

I know you're tired, you'll be alright,


Bridge -

G F F F

       G       D       G         Gbm
You're shining still behind the clouds
       Bm      G          D
saying I won't figure you out.
    G       D         G	     Gbm       
It might be true, but let me try,
             Bm          G          D
and try, and try for the rest of my life.

(Pause)

G                 F              (F Am)   
I'm not scared of being alone.  
G                 F              
I'm not scared of being alone,

being alone, I'm just 
G    D  G        Gbm
happier being confused
           Bm       G                 D
beside the fire, as long as it's with you.
G   D           G    Gbm
Why should that fire die?
           Bm       G       D
My mom and dad kept theirs alive.
     G        D        G        Gbm
It's getting late, she says goodnight
          Bm           G    D**
and falls asleep. I'll be alright
