Lyrics and Music by James Blunt, Amy Wadge and Jimmy Hogarth


Intro: :3/4: Eb | Eb | Eb
       Gm/D | Cm | Cm | Cm
       Eb/Bb | Ab | Ab

Eb                   Gm/D        Cm
Oh, before they turn off all the lights,
I won’t read you:
     Eb/Bb          Ab
Your wrongs or your rights.
             Eb
The time has gone.
                  Gm/D             Cm
I’ll tell you goodnight, close the door,
            Eb/Bb          Ab
Tell you “I love you” once more.
             Eb
The time has gone,
           Bb
So here it is:

Chorus:
                  Ab
     I’m not your son,
                   Bb
     You’re not my father.
                Eb
     We’re just two grown men
     Gm7/D      Cm
     Saying goodbye.
        Ab
     No need to forgive,
        Bb
     No need to forget;
            Eb
     I know your mistakes
     Gm7/D        Cm
     And you know mine.

    Ab
     And while you’re sleeping,
          Bb
     I’ll try to make you proud.
         Eb
     So, daddy, won’t you
     Gm7/D           Cm
     Just close your eyes?
               Ab              Bb
     Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
                            Eb
     To chase the monsters away.

Eb                   Gm/D     Cm
Oh, well I’ll read a story to you;
                   Eb/Bb       Ab
Only difference is this one is true.
             Eb
The time has gone.
              Gm/D           Cm
I folded your clothes on the chair.
                 Eb/Bb          Ab
I hope you sleep well. Don’t be scared.
             Eb
The time has gone,
           Bb
So here it is:

Chorus:
                  Ab
     I’m not your son,
                   Bb
     You’re not my father.
                Eb
     We’re just two grown men
     Gm7/D      Cm
     Saying goodbye.
        Ab
     No need to forgive,
        Bb
     No need to forget;
            Eb
     I know your mistakes
     Gm7/D        Cm
     And you know mine.

    Ab
     And while you’re sleeping,
          Bb
     I’ll try to make you proud.
         Eb
     So, daddy, won’t you
     Gm7/D           Cm
     Just close your eyes?
               Ab             Bb
     Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
                            Eb
     To chase the monsters away.

Bridge:
   Eb      Gm7/D
   Sleep a lifetime,
            Cm        Bb6
   Yes, and breathe a last word.
           Ab      Cm7/G        Bb/F
   You can feel my hand on your own.

Instrumental: Bb/F | Bb/F | Bb | Bb

          Eb     Gm7/D
   I will be the last one,
           Cm      Bb6
   So I’ll leave a light on.
             Ab    Cm7/G
   Let there be no darkness
           Bb/F
   In your heart.

Instrumental: Bb/F | Bb/F | Bb | Bb

Chorus:
                      Ab
     But I’m not your son,
                   Bb
     You’re not my father.
                Eb
     We’re just two grown men
     Gm7/D      Cm
     Saying goodbye.
        Ab
     No need to forgive,
        Bb
     No need to forget;
            Eb
     I know your mistakes
     Gm7/D        Cm
     And you know mine.

    Ab
     And while you’re sleeping,
          Bb
     I’ll try to make you proud.
         Eb
     So, daddy, won’t you
     Gm7/D           Cm
     Just close your eyes?
               Ab             Bb
     Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
                            Eb
     To chase the monsters away.
