More songs by Caedmon's Call


This transcription is not my own work; it was contributed to the site by another Caedmon's Call fan.

I haven't had a lot of time for guitar recently, but this is one of several tabs that various nice people have sent me. I haven't reviewed or editted them, so no guarantees about accuracy, but I'm sure people will find them useful. If you have transcribed a Caedmon's Call or derek webb song that's not already on this site, please feel free to send it in to be shared here.

Am7
it’s been a long year
C5
like a long sleepness night
G4
Jacob wrestled the angel
F2
but I’m too tired to fight

every Wednesday
for two years we’ve met
I’ve showed you all my anger,
my doubts and bitterness

G                             Am7
there was no judgment in your eyes
                         F2
just the silent peace of God
                     G
that felt so real in you

         Am7      G4        F2  G4 (5) (same as in the intro)
will you hold the light for me?


and I stay up late
because I cannot sleep
I don’t want to face the quiet
where its just God and me

I’m waiting for the gavel
handing me the sentence down
because I don’t believe forgiveness
or even repentance now

I want to feel redemption
flowing through my veins
I want to see with clear eyes
beyond lust and hate

I want the war to be over
and know the good guys won
and I want love to hold me
to know I’m not alone

standing around a willow weeping
we were praying in the backyard
in the chill of the night
the friendship light reminded me who we are
