No Capo

[Verse 1]
G
When you're feeling like an astronaut
D
Stuck on a planet even time forgot, and
Em
You're a version of yourself, but you're not the same
C
You try to keep the wound camouflaged, and
G                   D
The stitches heal, but the years are lost, and
Em              C
Another bottle on the shelf can't numb the pain

[Pre-Chorus]
G                   D
Why're you running from yourself now?
Em              C
You can't run away

[Chorus]
G
Cause your scars shine like dark stars
D
Yeah, your wounds are where the light shines through
Em
So let's go there, to that place where
C
We sing these broken prayers where the light shines through--
G                      D
The wound is where the light shines through
Em                 C
Yeah, the wound is where the light shines through

[Verse 2]
G
Ain't we all just Abraham's son?
D
Saint and sinner with the song and drum, and
Em
We're fallen on our knees, we all bleed the same
C
And the only tattoos I have are scars
G               D
I got your name written on my heart
Em              C
And the story that brought us here ain't the thing that changed, no

[Pre-Chorus]
G                D
I wanna see that light shining
Em              C
Brighter than the pain

[Chorus]
G
Cause your scars shine like a dark star
D
Yeah, your wounds are where the light shines through
Em
So let's go there, to that place where
C
We sing these broken prayers where the light shines through

The wound is where the light shines through

[Bridge]
G
Mama, ain't the blood just proof I'm human?
D
Mama, ain't the wound just retribution?
Em                    C
Well Mama, ain't the scar like a vision of grace?

[Outro]
G
The wound is where the light shines through
D
The wound is where the light finds you
Em
The wound is where the light shines through
C
The wound is where the light finds you
G
Your scars shine like dark stars
D
Yeah, the wound is where the light shines through
Em
It's where the light shines through
C
Yeah, yeah, it's where the light shines through
G
Yeah, the only time to our heart, oh oh
D
It's where the light shines through
Em
Where the light shines, where the light shines through
C
Where the light shines though
It's where the light shines through
