so, hold on, hold on, hold on, open the sky


Temptation and I
empty bedroom at night
alone as the dawn's iron gates
in the workhouse light
eyes in the firefight
so, hold on, hold on, hold on, open the sky

   
  G        D
When dawn comes
     E
the morning bleeds
  G             D
that drink who were
    E
a drink to sleep
G            D
so are the shouts
      Bm
that calls you
     G                   A
who wants you to play again


Temptation and I
temptation and I
comes the morning whistles the sign
brings on the light
memory brings light
so, hold on, hold on, hold on, open the sky

When dawn comes
     Bm          A
the morning it bleeds
           G           F#m
that dawn comes, drink were

a drink to sleep

just like dawn comes

temptation and I ...
