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


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

Eb                   Gm          Cm
Oh, before they turn off all the lights,
I won’t read you:
     Eb             Ab
Your wrongs or your rights.
             Eb
The time has gone.
                  Gm               Cm
I’ll tell you goodnight, close the door,
            Eb             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        Cm
     Saying goodbye.
        Ab
     No need to forgive,
        Bb
     No need to forget;
            Eb
     I know your mistakes
     Gm7          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             Cm
     Just close your eyes?
               Ab              Bb
     Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
                            Eb
     To chase the monsters away.

Eb                   Gm       Cm
Oh, well I’ll read a story to you;
                   Eb          Ab
Only difference is this one is true.
             Eb
The time has gone.
              Gm             Cm
I folded your clothes on the chair.
                 Eb             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        Cm
     Saying goodbye.
        Ab
     No need to forgive,
        Bb
     No need to forget;
            Eb
     I know your mistakes
     Gm7          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             Cm
     Just close your eyes?
               Ab             Bb
     Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
                            Eb
     To chase the monsters away.

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

Instrumental: Bb | Bb | Bb | Bb

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

Instrumental: Bb | Bb | Bb | Bb

Chorus:
                      Ab
     But I’m not your son,
                   Bb
     You’re not my father.
                Eb
     We’re just two grown men
     Gm7        Cm
     Saying goodbye.
        Ab
     No need to forgive,
        Bb
     No need to forget;
            Eb
     I know your mistakes
     Gm7          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             Cm
     Just close your eyes?
               Ab             Bb
     Don’t be afraid, it’s my turn
                            Eb
     To chase the monsters away.
