Track Name: Ember
Ember
Intro: C G Am F Dm G C

C G Am F
When you were young and not old enough and you wanted to know, yeah, you wanted to know
C G Am G
All the places you’d be going to, what you’d know right now, where you’d be running to.
C G Am F
Hey, little boy, one day you’ll be a man, and all you didn’t know, you’ll understand.
C G Am G
Now, they don’t say ‘cause they don’t know, or maybe they’re afraid where they’re going to.

C G Am F
Hey, little girl, who you gonna be? Looks like someone to me, looks like someone to be …
C G Am G
Give it all, spread your wings to fly, but in order to live, something else must die.
C G Am F
Looking back on where you’re coming from, on where you’re going to, on where you’re running from,
C G Am F
Come so far, seems so long, can you be brave? Can you be strong?

Am G
Chorus: All the things end, nothing stays the same.
F Am G
Do you believe you’ll make it someday?
Dm G C Csus4
So keep a match close by, but keep an ember burning tonight.

C G Am F
So many voices screaming to be heard, pulling you their way, it’s the only way.
C G Am G
Won’t you believe? Place your trust in me. If you take my hand, I’ll always be here.
C G Am F
But always ain’t forever when nothing’s clear, when what you believe becomes what you fear.
C G Am G
From far away, you can see it all, but get up close, and the world seems so small.

Chorus x2

Hey, little boy, one day you’ll be a man, and all you didn’t know, you’ll understand.
