lyrics

(F)As you (G) leave this place (C), (F)you may (G)feel a(C)fraid
(F)And the dreams (G) you (Em)offer this weary world(Am), may fall by the (G)road (C/G)

(F)And who knows (G) where we'll be(C), (F) in a (G)week or three
(F) So I'll hoist (G) my (Em)heart and I'll give myself (Am) to this travelers' (G)code (C/G G7)

CHORUS
Follow the (F)light, (Gsus G) when the woods become (C)thick (Am7)
Follow the (F) light (G) when your eyes show you (C) tricks
Follow the (F)light, when the waters are (G)rough
Follow the light, (Am)follow the (Dm) light, (G) cause that light is (C)love


Comes the time to go, our heads may hang low
But you and I forever will know that we're a part of this tribe

And I will own my pain, you will do the same
In the end, we're beholden to this law, to which we ascribe

CHORUS
Follow the light, when the woods become thick
Follow the light when your eyes show you tricks
Follow the light, when the waters are rough
Follow the light, follow the light, cause that light is love


BRIDGE:
(F)You will close (G)your (Em)eyes to (Am)sleep
(F) In my (G)heart you'll smile(Em) I'll keep(Am)
(F)And the (G)troubles of (Em) our days
Will (Dm) fade like (Dm7) falling (F)counted (G)sheep

And who knows where we'll be, in a week or three
So I'll hoist my heart and I'll give myself to this travelers code

CHORUS
Follow the light, when the woods become thick
Follow the light when your eyes show you tricks
Follow the light, when the waters are rough
Follow the light, follow the light, cause that light is love
