(E) A E D A D E
Uh, I had the time but I blew it, I had the power and I knew it
D A D E
Had the energy, but outgrew it, the identity but saw through it, yeah
E D A D E
I had the walk, but got trampled, had the taste, it was sampled
D A D E
Had the engine dismantled, had the flame, but no candle

CHORUS
D E
I can't bear to see how it all looks in the light, keep it hidden now
D E F#m
If I could only find a switch that turns on the endless night
E D A E F#m
That turns on the endless night, that turns on the endless night
E D E
That turns on the endless night ah ah ah uh

Ah, if there's a wire, must cross it, if there's a coin, must toss it
If it's dirt can't wash it, It's my head, d-don't cosh it
There's a door, but they shut it, we all bleed, they cut it
It's so dark when you don't fit, it's a gauntlet you gotta run it oh baby
A E
REPEAT CHORUS (plus) Turn on the endless night
Instrumental verse (then)
B
Turn on the endless, turn on the endless, turn on the endless

If there's a cross, then bear it, if there's a loss, then share it
If it's a risk let's dare it, if it's blindness, outstare it

REPEAT CHORUS (plus)
D A E F#m
That turns on the endless night, (That, just, and) turns on the endless night
E D E
Let's turns on the endless night ah ah ah uh (repeat with variations and fade)
