 D        Em
Let it rain
      F#m          Em       D
As I walk these streets unknown
    C
To no one named
    G
Not even myself
Gm F#m    Em
When I’m low

 Em
Give me hope
      D
That help is coming
Gm      F#m     Em
When I need it most
 Em
Give me hope
      D
That help is coming
Gm      F#m     Em
When I need it most

Let it go
No mother no father no home
Forget as all others
Have forgotten
When I’m alone

But give me hope
That help is coming
When I need it most
Give me hope
That help is coming
When I need it most

Let it come
Love that lifts me up
Pain that brings me down
Everything I’d ever want and don’t
When I’m not strong

But give me hope
That help is coming
When I need it most
Give me hope
That help is coming
When I need it most

Let it rain
Let it flood these streets and wash me away
To where it makes no difference who I am
Or what the future holds
When I don’t know

But give me hope
That help is coming
When I need it most
Give me hope
That help is coming
When I need it most

If no love will comfort me
If no kind words come
To offer hope or peace
When I have fallen
If I be a stranger
Friend of no one
I’ll gladly take my place
In the world beyond

If I never see another sun
If I never see another sun
If I never see another sun
Another sun another sun

If I lay down and wake to see
The bright light of the morn
Rise up every day
To blind beat and burn
Show me no mercy
For need or want
Let somebody take my place
When the new day dawns

If I never see another sun
If I never see another sun
If I never see another sun
Another sun another sun

Bm    A   G  F#  Bm
G     F#    A
G     F#    Bm 

Bm          A
   Make me fumble
G           Bm
   Make me fall
Bm              A
Make my heart stop and start
     G            F#
To tremble uncontrollably
 Bm              A
Let my eyes see fear make desire
       G              Bm
Keep those who long apart
 Bm                          A
Forbid the kiss and leave us innocent
         G          F#        Bm
Of the things some do in the dark

      G          F#        A
The things some do in the dark
      G          F#        Bm
The things some do in the dark

Make me remember
Make me forget
Make my mind unable
To force the body to do its will
Let it be right for belief and denial
To share a space in the heart
And leave us only to imagine
About the things some do in the dark

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Make me pretend
Make me expect
Things can go and come to pass
Without trial or tribulation
Let this life space and time
Leave my body with permanent marks
Faded scars and lines
But not a single impression

Of the things some do in the dark

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Let me be tempted
Let me be torn
But make my thoughts pure and not
Morally corrupt in form
Let us sleep tonight, let innocence lie
In our dreams and secret hearts
With burning desire
A need to know and do
The things some do in the dark

The things some do in the dark
The things some do in the dark

Fm:  133111

          Cm
Say Hallelujah
Throw up your hands
The bucket is kicked
     G
The body is gone
  Cm
Close your eyes
And bow your head
To rest your soul
         G         Cm
And to praise the dead

Say Hallelujah
Throw up your hands
The bucket is kicked
The body is gone

Dry your eyes
And stand upright
Put a smile on your face
He wouldn’t want us to cry

     G
The sun will rise
The stars will shine
         Fm
Turning day to dusk
     Cm
And night to dawn
 G
We’ll pass on
But until that time

Say Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Say Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Say Hallelujah
Throw up your hands
The bucket is kicked
The body is gone

Have mercy
It’s a wonderful life
Eternal rest for the weary
Mourners party tonight

Say Hallelujah
Throw up your hands
The bucket is kicked
The body is gone

Wave your hands
But don’t say goodbye
We’re all gonna meet you
On the other side

D:   000232
E:   022100

F#m

F#m
You can close your eyes
           A
And see a picture perfect life
   D       E
Inside of your mind
         F#m                 A
Dreaming only of the days ahead
            D
Wanted and wished for more than now
E
Or the days behind

 F#m
You waste your time
     D
The picture makes a promise
   A                   E      F#m
The flesh lets it be broken
     D
The picture makes a promise
   A                   E      F#m
The flesh lets it be broken

You can never think
You can’t even stop yourself
Before the words have been spoken
And you’ve already said
You would give everything
And something for nothing
Everybody thinks you’re joking

The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken
The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken

You want to be the one
Made over be your own
Before and after
And a supermarket
Beauty in a bottle queen
Who’ll one day grace a check-out counter
Magazine front cover
Though the fine print reads

The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken
The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken

             E
Lets it be broken
             D
Lets it be broken
             A  E F#m
Lets it be broken
             D
Lets it be broken
             E
Lets it be broken
D
Broken, broken
F#m
Broken, broken

                   D
When your life is never what you wanted
    A
Not even halfway normal
      D
Just tarnished and soiled
       E
When in your reach
    D
A framed and frozen moment
 A
So far from perfection
      D
Not truth or transcendence
     E
Will set you free

Still you don’t believe

The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken
The picture makes a promise
The flesh lets it be broken

Possessed by nothing but
A heart that’s chosen freely

If you are mine

When I fall and stumble
Flat on my face
When I’m shamed and humbled
In disgrace

I am yours
If you are mine

When voices call me
To question my faith
When misperception
Taints my love with hate

I am yours
If you are mine

When time decides
It won’t stop for me
When the hawks and vultures
Are circling

I am yours
If you are mine

Cold wind blows
Shivers loose
Hard rain

I don't even care

Sky turns grey
Black and blue
Fall on me
I can't be moved

So over in love with you
I don't even care
