G+           G                 F-C-F-C
I can't light no more of your darkness
F              F                           G-C/G-G-C/G
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
G+           C/G   G7                    F    C   F-C-F-C-C7/E
I'm growing tired and time stands still before me
F         F                     G+-C/G-G7
Frozen here on the ladder of my life
G+-C/G-G7                     C-F-C-F-C-C/E
Too late to save myself from falling
F           A#/F-F                      F-C/G-G7
I took a chance and changed your way of life
G+           C/G-G+                 F-C-C-C/E
But you misread my meaning when I met you
F             F               C/G           G-F/G
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light
C                     C/A#
Don't let the sun go down on me
Am7                                    D7
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
C/G                                F/G-G7        C   C/A#
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
     F                             Dm7 C-F   C/G F/G C
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me
C/A#-F/A-C/G-F
G+           G                C(diddle a C/A# in here)C
I can't find, oh the right romantic line
F             F                   G+-C/G-G7-F/G-F-G+
But see me once and see the way I feel
G+-G7-C/G        G7                 C              C-C/E
Don't discard me just because you think I mean you harm
F                 F              C/G               G-G7
But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal
C                     C/A#
Don't let the sun go down on me
Am7                                    D7
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
C/G                                F/G-G7        C   C/A#
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
     F                             Dm7 C-F   C/G F/G C
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me
C/A#-F/A-G#-A#-C
