Chords and Lyrics Hilltop Hoods - Through The Dark


Artist : Hilltop Hoods
Song : Through The Dark

Verse 1 :
A
The very day you were born, your light shone bold in dark
Em
The doctor said you had a hole in your heart
G
Just knew you were making room for a whole lot of heart
D
And loved you from that day until your soul would depart
Am
You took your first breath upon my chest
C
I built you a good nest before I left
G
It wasn't that I never loved your mother
A Em
But two happy homes are better than one that suffered
G
Every regret in this life that I've made
A
Have been tempered by the strength in your eyes everyday
Em
I know you never said that you'd like me to stay
G
Still I'm sorry I neglected you while I was away

You were eight when we headed to casualty
Am
And no child should face their death or mortality
C
You taught me patience, strength and morality
Em
And I'd burden this weight instead of you happily
A
That night, you asked would you die from your sickness?
Em
And why had it chosen your life out of millions
Am
You filled me with a pride I was missing
C
Cause grown men cry they lack your type of resilience
A
Only when it's dark are the stars so bright
Em
For your fight you're gonna harbour these scars for life
G
But you a brave little soul, came in the cold
A
Like a fighter hope you find that same flame when you're old

Chorus :
Am C
Fall asleep
Em
And lay with me
G A
We'll search the night for shooting stars
Am
If they can't take
C
Away your pain
Em G
I'll take your hand, walk through the dark
D
The dark
A
Through the dark

Verse 2 :
Am
I wrote this while you slept in a hospital bed
C
Know this, your breath at the cost of my breath
A
I'd forego this life, let you honour my death
Em
If you could know what it's like to live long and regret
G
So you can fight you can shove you can bleed and hurt
A
So you can cry you can love learn your creed or worth
Em
Earn your stripes, act dumb, cut your teeth or worse
G
Or take a wife to become your sky, sea and earth
D
But if these are things that you never see
Am
With no god, just me here to set you free
C
And most others won't understand the hell in which you've been in
G
Until they've wrestled with a demon
A
Take heart, to be brave we first need fear
Am
That same heart that's seen pain yet persevered
C
Will serve you, I know this world is of course unfair
Em
And you hurt, but these virtues are yours to bare
A
I named you Lion Hearted the day you're born
G
They say the night is darkest before the dawn
Em G
I'll take your hand upon this path if you can light a spark
D
Then we can find some calm in a raging storm

Ain't nothing left to scare you see
Am
So we can live, laugh and cherish every breath we breathe
C
And no matter where you go know I'll never leave
Em A
Cause even when we're gone we're living in a memory, so live on

Chorus :
Am C
Fall asleep
Em
And lay with me
G A
We'll search the night for shooting stars
Am
If they can't take
C
Away your pain
Em G
I'll take your hand, walk through the dark
D
The dark
A
Through the dark

Verse 3 :
Am
And I'm sorry that I can't take your pain or answer why
C
We'll lay awake through darker skies
G
I say your name you cast a light
A
You're a flame on a starless night
Am
And I didn't know I was lost till you found me
C
Didn't know I was locked here without keys
G
But we can walk across all these boundaries
A
You and me nothing here to stop you you're now free
Em
So I wrote this to give you hope
D
For every good thing in life you'll live to know
Am C
They say cancers survivors are gifted though
G A
Let me know if that isn't so
