Intro: Gadd9 A6 | Bm | Gmaj Gmaj A6 Someone’s selling garden roses Gmaj Down the square, A6 People gathering by to breathe Gmaj The morning air, A But no one sees the bitter cold A#dim7 Bmadd9 Bmadd11 Bm Bmadd9 And shivering empty hands. Gadd9 A6 A schoolgirl running by and trying Gadd9 To beat the bell, Gmaj A People dropping, tossing coins F#m F#m+ Gadd9 In wishing wells, A But no one cares for dreams A#dim7 Bm Bmadd9 Bm That don’t fit into our world. Chorus: Bm7 Gadd9 Gmaj A6 Maybe nightfall F#m7 Bm Bmadd9 Darkens skies G Asus4 And maybe teardrops F#m7 Bmsus4 Bm Stain our eyes, Bmadd9 Gmaj A But may the slightest light Gmaj Gmaj5- Start a fire. Gmaj A6 A soldier in the hands Gmaj Of a forgotten mess A6 F#m7 Digging out the burning bullets Gmaj In his chest, A6 So eager, bold and noble – A#dim7 Bm Bmadd9 Printing footsteps on this earth. Chorus: Gmaj A And maybe nightfall F#m7 Bm Darkens skies Gadd9 A And maybe teardrops F#m F#m+ F#m7 Bm Stain our eyes, Gmaj A But may the slightest light Bm F#7 Start a fire, D E6 E G Start a fire.
