G                    Csus4
Warm yourself by the fire son,
        D5                Csus4
And the morning will come soon.
G                          Csus4
I'll tell you stories of a better time,
     D5                 Csus4
In a place that we once knew.
G                             Csus4
Before we packed our bags and left all this,
  D5             Csus4
Behind us in the dust,
G                            Csus4
We had a place that we could call home,
      D5                Csus4
And a life no one could touch.

CHORUS
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Csus4
You won't let me down, down, down,
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Csus4
You won't let me down, down, down, down...

G                        Csus4
We are the angry and the desperate,
    D5             Csus4
The hungry and the cold.
G                        Csus4
We are the ones who kept quiet,
           D5               Csus4
And always did what we were told.
G                                 Csus4
But we've been sweating while you slept so calm,
       D5             Csus4
In the safety of your home.
G                          Csus4
We've been pulling out the nails that hold up,
D5                Csus4
Everything you've known.

CHORUS
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Csus4
You won't let me down, down, down,
              Em7
Don't hold me up now,
               G
I can stand my own ground
                  D5
I don't need your help now,
                 Csus4              Am
You won't let me down, down, down...

BRIDGE I
(Am)         G                           Am
So open your eyes child, letís be on our way,
                   G                     Am
Broken windows and ashes are guiding the way.
              G                              F/C
Keep quiet no longer, we'll sing through the day,
                        Em                          Csus4    G5    D5
Of the lives that we've lost, and the lives we've reclaimed.
