NOTES
In Memory of all lost in the Camp Fire November 2018.
written by Monica Petruzzelli, Tim Bonow, and Kevin Held, this song truly captures the feel of the pain and sadness in the song, but can not compare to the actual pain and suffering of all those caught in the aftermath.

Verse -
G Dm
The wildfire burns tonight Like a demon in the wind
C Em
We had everything Now we've lost our homes and friends.
G Dm
This will go down in history With scars that last for years
C Em D
Family lives put on the line Is this a pressure we can bear ?

Bridge
C G C D
Can we bear it? Can we bear it?

Chorus:
G Dm C Em D
If life’s taught us anything
G Dm C Em D
We stand together to be strong
G Dm C Em D
We drive through the brightness of the dark ...to somewhere to call home

Bridge and Solo C G C G C G D

Repeat Chorus
G Dm C Em D
If life’s taught us anything
G Dm C Em D
We stand together to be strong
G Dm C Em D
We drive through the brightness of the dark ...to somewhere to call home

Verse 2
A fire burns inside, that’s right One that will last, and is our home
Embers took the things we held So each other we will hold
Where do we go from here? We cannot go to the start
It’s time to move ourselves Find comfort, and fall apart..

Bridge C G C D
Can we bear it? Can we bear it?
Repeat Chorus:
Bridge C G C D

OUTRO: C G D
We lost Paradise But we’re strong (voice response): Paradise can still be found
We lost Paradise But we held on (voice response): Paradise can still be found
Paradise, Paradise we’re not gone, (voice response): Paradise can still be found
Paradise, Paradise, you’re not gone
