I've had a lot of trouble with the current chords for this, so I decided to make 
my own since I'm p. sure I'm correct.

F          G

C                       G                  Am
Why do you cry when you know how the story ends?

F                          C                         G
How can you laugh when you know that it hurts your friends?

C                    G                   Am          Em
We've all been there once, but you never left 

F                                  G               
This is me coming back to get you out to say goodbye, to make amends

C           G            Am
  I'm not leaving this place

F          C            G
Unless I'm leaving with you

      C               G             Am          Em
Cause you're the only person with a half decent heart here

F                          G
And I know you will put it to use

           C     G     Am
Until it's gone, gone, gone

F     C     G
Gone, gone, gone

C     G     Am    Em    F     G
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, yeah

Na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F 
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

C            G                      Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

                    F
I hope you think of me, yeah

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F 
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

           C            G
And if you go, I'll be gone

    Am              F                 C             G
And you'll be left alone to live your life, as you please

     Am             F                C               G
But someday you'll agree that I was always meant for you

         Am               F                C           
You were always meant for me and you will see

G

             C     Am     F       G
that you're impossible

        C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

        C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

        C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

C       Am        F        G x2


C          G            Am
Me and Mr. Dylan on the ride home

         F        C           G
We had a heart-to-heart about life

    C              G           Am           Em
But neither him or me could decide for ourselves 

      F                      G
If we wanted to outlive that night

           C              G                Am
Like two children on the playground of the unconfessed souls

F                C               G
Abandoned by our mothers and our lovers and our foes

   C            G                Am                Em
If only we were brave enough to live the lives we stole

         F                        G
What a wonderful world this could be!

C       G       Am

F       C       G

C       G       Am       Em

F       G

Na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F 
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

C           G                       Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

                    F
I hope you think of me, yeah

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F 
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

           C           G
And if you go, I'll be gone

    Am              F                 C             G
And you'll be left alone to live your life, as you please

     Am             F                 C              G
But someday you'll agree that I was always meant for you

          Am              F                C            
You were always meant for me and you will see

G

             C    Am      F      G
that you're impossible

        C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

        C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

        C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

    C              G                Am
So, how many more examples until we break?
 
   F              C            G
So how many sacrifices must we make?

      C                      G
Because we've all been there once before

        Am                 Em
And it looks like we've returned once more

       F                        G
So is this the beginning or the end?

              C                 G    
The last two soldiers on the battlefield

Am
Survivors of the war

      F                             C               G
They aim at one another while their mothers beg the lord

                C         G
"If you're listening, I'm missing him

    Am                Em
So somehow bring him home.

F                   G
How did it come to this?"

          C                  G
So the soldiers lift their rifles

             Am
And they're aiming at the head

      F                                     C               G
They think of their first love before they take their final breath

     C                G                 Am                Em
And somewhere in the distance they hear something someone said:

F                    G
"How did it come to this?"

F     E     F      

C     G     Am    F

C     G     Am    F

C            G                      Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

                  E F   C    Am   F
I hope you think of me, yeah

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

C            G                      Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

           F
I hope you think of me, yeah

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F 
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
