[Intro]

Em      B7         C
   Hmmm mmmh mhhh mhhhhmmmm
G       B7        Em
   Hmmm mmmh mhhh mhhhmmmm
Em      B7         C
   Hmmm mmmh mhhh mhhhhmmmm
G       B7        Em
   Hmmm mmmh mhhh mhhhmmmm


[Preverse]

Em              G              C      
   When I was a child, I heard voices,
Am                                B7 
   Some would sing and some would scream.
Em          G                 C       
   You soon find you have few choices,
Am                                Em 
   I learned the voices died with me.


[Verse 1]

Em              G                 C    
   When I was a child I'd sit for hours,
Am         C         B7 
   Staring into open flames.
Em           G           C    
   Something in it had a power,
Am              B7           Em 
   Could barely tear my eyes away.


[Chorus]

Em         G            C           
   All you have is your fire,
Em         G                 B7 
   And the place you need to reach.
Em           G     C     
   Don't you ever, taaaame your demons,
Am        B7             Em
   Always keep them on a leash.


[Humming]

Em      B7        C
   Hmmm mmmh mhhh mhhhhmmmm
G       B7        Em
   Hmmm mmmh mhhh mhhhmmmm


[Verse 2]

Em            G            C     
   When i was 16 my senses fooled me,
Em              G             B7 
   Thought gasoline was on my clothes.
Em                   G                C     
   I knew that something would always rule me,
Am             B7           Em
   I knew this sin was mine alone.


[Chorus]


Em         G            C           
   All you have is your fire,
Em         G                 B7 
   And the place you need to reach.
Em           G     C     
   Don't you ever, taaaame your demons,
Am        B7             Em
   Always keep them on a leash.


[Verse 3]

Em              G                C     
   When I was a man I thought it ended,
Em        G                   B7 
   Well I knew love's perfect ache
Em                  G      C     
   But my peace has always depended,
Am            B7          Em
   on all the ashes in my way


[Chorus]


Em         G            C           
   All you have is your fire,
Em         G                 B7 
   And the place you need to reach.
Em           G     C     
   Don't you ever, taaaame your demons,
Am        B7             Em
   Always keep them on a leash.
