Night So Still

from From Years To Hours... the early recordings

Intro: (asus2) (f#m7sus4) (asus2) (f#m7sus4)

(asus2) i turn on the hallway light
(f#m7sus4) i am up again at night
(asus2) i've got my window seat
Got a light (f#m7sus4) that shines down to the street

(asus2) (f#m7sus4)

(asus2) in the day i think i can
(f#m7sus4) but at night i think again
(asus2) got these worries on my mind and i'll
(f#m7sus4) organize them one more time

'cause (d) if i hold (a/c#) the night (bm) this still (e/g#)
I (a) know i'll be (e/g#) alright (f#m7) un- (dadd9) til
(asus2) morning (f#m7sus4) (asus2) (f#m7sus4)

(asus2) oh the darkness makes me smaller
(f#m7sus4) and the world seems that much taller
(asus2) sometimes i worry i'll get what i hoped
And i'll have (f#m7sus4) to stand up and sing the songs i wrote

But (d) if i hold (a/c#) the night (bm) this still (e/g#)
I (a) know i'll be (e/g#) alright (f#m7) un- (dadd9) til
(asus2) morning (f#m7sus4) (asus2) (f#m7sus4)

Instrumental break:
(d a/c#) (bm e/g#) (a e/g#) (f#m7) (dadd9)
(asus2) (f#m7sus4) (asus2) (f#m7sus4)

(d) oh a walk would do (a) me good
But (bmadd9) i don't trust the neigh- (e/g#) borhood
(d) i could call my west (a) coast friends (a/c#)
Say (bmadd9) "hey, i'm (e/g#) up again."

(Asus2) (f#m7sus4) (asus2) (f#m7sus4)

(asus2) i let my mind run through the house
(f#m7sus4) pretty soon i'm tired out
(asus2) empty my pockets, take off my shoes
(f#m7sus4) in sleep i will join you.

And (d) can you hold (a/c#) the night (bm) this still (e/g#)
So (a) i will be (e/g#) alright (f#m7) un- (dadd9) til
(asus2) morning? (F#m7sus4)
(asus2) ooh (f#m7sus4) (a)
