Intro 

C          Bm           Am

Dm         C            G

Am         C           C         Am

F          G

Verse

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

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

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

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

C       Bm           Am
I'm not leaving this place

Dm         C       G
Unless I'm leaving with you

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

F                   G
And I know you will put it to use

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

Dm    C     G
Gone, gone, gone

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

Prechorus

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

Chorus

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

I hope you think of me, yeah

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

Am                  F

Verse

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            G
You were always meant for me and you will see

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

Verse

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

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

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

F               G
If we wanted to outlive that night

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

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

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

F                      G
What a wonderful world this could be!

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

Chorus

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

Verse

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            G
You were always meant for me and you will see

C    Am      F      G
that you're impossible

You're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

Verse

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

Am                           C
Because we've all been there once before

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

F                        G
So is this the beginning or the end?

C                     Bm
The last two soldiers on the battlefield

Am
Survivors of the war

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

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

C          Am
So somehow bring him home.

F          G
How did it come to this?"

C               Bm
So the soldiers lift their rifles

Am
And they're aiming at the head

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

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

F           G
"How did it come to this?"
