VERSE
Bm G DI dreamt about you the other night
Bm G DWe were there and people started to die
Bm G DThe seas rose to a terrible height
G D G F#7 But we survived yes we survived (I don't know why)
VERSE
Bm G DWe watched the grass pile up in the cracks
Bm G DThe birds return, the nights went black
Bm G DYeah we were lovers in the great collapse
G D G F#7The seasons came, the seasons passed
CHORUS
G D A EmSo free what you love 'cause it's gonna die anyway
G D A EmThose golden days will be fossilized and you'll scream
G D Bm AOh back it up, back it up, but it's not the same
G D A BmThough it's enough just to say I knew you well
x3 -> Bm, G, D x1 -> G, D, G, F#7 VERSE
Bm G DNow I can't sleep and I can't say no
Bm G DCivilization ain't got no soul
Bm G DThe tick tock ticks out of control
G D G F#7I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll (he's lost control)
VERSE
Bm G DThough when my dream ends
Bm G DIt's true we're hardly friends
Bm G DI can't forget those seasons
G D D F#7The world is one, the world is one
CHORUS
G D A EmSo free what you love 'cause it's gonna die anyway
G D A EmThose golden days will be fossilized and we'll scream

Or alternately continue the chorus by ending the last line with...
G, D, A, G and then start the chorus again as done in the video
