The Nights Chords/Lyrics/Verse

C#m
Once upon a younger year
          C#m
When all our shadows disappeared
        B                                            C#m
The animals inside came out to play
           C#m
When face to face with all our fears
C#m
Learned our lessons through the tears
B                                                               C#m
Made memories we knew would never fade

The Nights Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

                      A
One day my father—he told me,
                    E
"Son, don't let it slip away"
      B                                                     C#m
He took me in his arms, I heard him say,            

The Nights Chords/Lyrics/Verse

                           A
"When you get older
                                E
Your wild life will live for younger days
B                                           B
Think of me if ever you're afraid."

The Nights Chords/Lyrics/Pre-Chorus

        A                                              E
He said, "One day you'll leave this world behind
               B                       C#m
So live a life you will remember."
                  A                                          E
My father told me when I was just a child
                        B                          C#m
These are the nights that never die

My father told me

The Nights Chords/Lyrics/Verse

C#m
When thunder clouds start pouring down
C#m
Light a fire they can't put out
B                                                              C#m
Carve their name into those shinning stars
                C#m
He said, "Go adventure far beyond these shores.
C#m
Don't forsake this life of yours.
B                                                                   C#m
I'll guide you home no matter where you are."
