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.
