Darkness Descends
A really easy tab - just strumming. A lovely song  :)

Verse 1

G                        D7                    D                       G

You're holding bits of styrofoam with your face painted on to your friends

G                        D7                    D                       G

You listen to them whine and moan about everything you can't understand

G            D7        D           G

Can I just say I don't fear the light

G            D7        D           G

But darkness descends once more into my life

G                  D7               D                       G

And suddenly we're all alone in silence so I take a step away

G                   D7                       D                 G

I look up to the falling snow as it makes it's home upon my face

G                        D7        D                G

Well I wouldn't want to ruin something I couldn't save

G                     D7         D                G

The gap will keep us safe, the gap will keep us safe

Bm       A    Bm               A

   Step away  Get me when I'm dooooown

Em      A      Em       A                       G

Ahhahh Ahhahh Ahhahh Ahhahh .........

Verse 2

G                 D7                      D                    G

And suddenly I'm five years old and I'm just so cold I want to cry

G                     D7               D                    G

I haul up on my gentlemen, who have always been there in hard times

G                    D7        D         G

But they're just not like that man of mine, 

G        D7        D         G

who visits me from time to time

Bm    A    Bm              A

My love, I'll treasure youuu

Em      A      Em       A                       G

Ahhahh Ahhahh Ahhahh Ahhahh .........

Verse 3

G                     D7                  D                      G

I hear that summer's coming back oh I stretch out my back and travel on

G                     D7                 D                    G

The winter thought it darkens me, it is pure and clean and all I want

G          D7           D       G

I'll apologize to the ones I love, 

G          D7              D         G

for leaving them when the sun comes up

Bm        A            Bm           A
    Too bright for me, darkness descends

Em      A      Em       A                   

Ahhahh Ahhahh Ahhahh Ahhahh 

Em                A             Em                    A  

Oh well I'm not well again and once more darkness it descends

Em                     A          Em                    A                   G

The ground is falling under me and I can't find the means to leave      

Verse 4 

G                     D7           D                      G

Convinced that I am going mad oh I bury my head into his hands

G                     D7             D                      G

So sure that I am losing faith oh I clear a space in his father's land

G             D7   D         G

You deal with God far to young, 

G             D7         D       G  D7    G

before you know it your life has ruuun away

Her debut single came out on WayOutWest Records, with a new single coming out soon on Virgin Records.
