THE BRIGHTEST LIGHTS
by James Hill

[INTRO 1]
D D A A
G G D D G G D D A A D D
G G D D A A D D

[INTRO 2]
G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D

[VERSE]
G G D D G G D D
I wore a carnation
D D G G A A
You wore a lilly white.
G G D D G G D D
Our young love...
D D G G A A
It could survive on sunlight.
G G D D G G D D
It was foolish and fancy,
D D G G A A
Tasted like cotton candy.
G G D D G G D D
I love you, I miss you
D D G G
Like Elvis misses
A A D D G G D D G G D D G G D D AD
Tennessee.

[VERSE]
G G D D G G D D
I sent you a postcard
D D G G A A
Confessions on both sides.
G G D D G G D D
An old flame will flicker
D D G G A A
And turn blue before it dies.
G G D D G G D D
I can't shake these memories
D D G G A A
They stick like wet confetti.
G G D D G G D D
A A swim in the ocean
D D G G A A D D G G D D
Might not hurt me any.

[PRE-CHORUS]
Bm Bm G G
It's mid-July and there's still
A7 A7 D D
a chance of rain
Bm Bm G G
The sky has gone from black
A7 A7
to white to gray...

[CHORUS]
D D
Don't the brightest lights
G G A7 A7 D D
cast the darkest shadows?
G G
Oh my love
A7 A7 D D G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D
Let me go

[VERSE]
G G D D G G D D
I'm spinnin', I'd dizzy,
D D G G A A
I'm busy pushin' paper.
G G D D G G D D
I build things...
D D G G A A
To tear them all down later.
G G D D G G D D
Decisions, distractions
D D G G A A
These angles of refraction.
G G D D G G D D
And somehow you sleep through
D D G G A A D D G G D D
The sound of cymbals crashin'.

[PRE-CHORUS]
Bm Bm G G
It's December but there's still
A7 A7 D D
a chance of rain
Bm Bm G G
The sky has gone from black
A7 A7
to white again...

[DOUBLE CHORUS]
D D
Don't the brightest lights
G G A7 A7 D D
cast the darkest shadows?
G G
Oh my love
A7 A7 D D G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D
Let me go
D D
Don't the brightest lights
G G A7 A7 D D
cast the darkest shadows?
G G
Oh my love
A7 A7 D D G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D
Let me go

[CODA]
A7 A7 D D G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D
Let me go
A7 A7 D D G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D
Let me go
A7 A7 D D G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D
Let me go
A7 A7 D D G G D D G G D D G G D D A A D D
Let me go
