[Intro]
C  G  Em  D  2x


[Verse]
C          G         Em       D
I was left to my own devices
C         G              Em         D
Many days fell away with nothing to show


[Pre-chorus]
C                           G
And the walls kept tumbling down
                   Em     D
In the city that we loved
C                          G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       Em   D
Bringing darkness from above


[Chorus]
                      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?


[Verse]
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


[Pre-chorus]
C                           G
And the walls kept tumbling down
                   Em     D
In the city that we loved
C                          G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       Em   D
Bringing darkness from above


[Chorus]
                      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?


[Interlude]
C  G  Em  D


[Bridge]
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?


[Pre-chorus]
C                           G
And the walls kept tumbling down
                   Em     D
In the city that we loved
C                          G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       Em   D
Bringing darkness from above


[Chorus]
                     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?


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


[Outro]
