Heart of Darkness
Words & Music by Chris DeBurgh                   

Gm              F                  Eb                             F
Last night I saw it there, shining in the dark again,
Gm                  F                         Eb - F
The light that all men seem to fear,
Eb                  F                   Bb                        Eb
They say that sailors were drowning in the bay,
        Cm 
And people kept away,
           Ab/C                                                   Gm
Waiting for the riches that a wreck would bring,
                                F
When the morning comes,
        Eb                    F                      Gm
And on and on that light returns again,
F     Eb                           F                              Gm - F - Eb - F - Gm - F - Eb
To haunt the ones who would not hear the pain;

I took the old path down, climbing over rocks and stones,
The place I knew when I was young,
And in my fear I had to carry on,
Where no-one else had gone,
Looking in the heart of darkness from above,
To the man inside,
I took my chance and set off for the light,
And started the journey of my life;

F               Gm                                    Eb
And in the darkest hour that light was calling me,
                     F                                   Gm
Through the doorway to another world,
                                                    Eb
And there below me I saw all the days of my life,
           Cm                                     D
Till the moment I stood on the shore,
Worlds away, this was my destiny,
To be back here in another time,
And all around me I saw the faces that I knew,
Reaching out, "there is nothing to fear,"
Worlds away,
Come with me;

Gm             F                   Eb
Last night I saw it there, shining in the dark again,
Gm                  F                          Eb - F
The light that all men seem to fear;
Eb               F      Eb             F    Eb             F     
Come with me, come with me, come with me...
