C-G-Em-D X2

C G Em D
I was left to my own de–v-i-c-e-s
C G Em D
Many days fell away with nothing to show

C G
And the walls kept tumbling down
Em D
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
C G
Great clouds roll over the hills
Em D
Bringing darkness from A-B-o-v-E

C
But if you close your eyes,
G
Does it almost feel like
Em D
Nothing changed at all?
C
And if you close your eyes,
G
Does it almost feel like
Em D
You’ve been here before?

C Em D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
C Em D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

C G Em D
We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
C G Em D
In your pose as the dust settles around us

C G
And the walls kept tumbling down
Em D
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
C G
Great clouds roll over the hills
Em D
Bringing darkness from A-B]-o-v-E

C
But if you close your eyes,
G
Does it almost feel like
Em D
Nothing changed at all?
C
And if you close your eyes,
G
Does it almost feel like
Em D
You’ve been here before?

C G D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
C G D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

(Instrumental)
C-G-Em-D

C G
Oh where do we begin?
Em D
The rubble or our sins?
C G
Oh where do we begin?
Em D
The rubble or our sins?

C G
And the walls kept tumbling down
Em D
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
C G
Great clouds roll over the hills
Em D
Bringing darkness from A-B-o-v-E

C
But if you close your eyes,
G
Does it almost feel like
Em D
Nothing changed at all?
C
And if you close your eyes,
G
Does it almost feel like
Em D
You’ve been here before?

C Em D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
C Em D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

C
But if you close your eyes,
G
Does it almost feel like
Em D
Nothing changed at all?

(Outro)
C-G-Em-D X2
