[Verse]
Am                         C                 G
     When the wind picked up the fire spread
                      D                 Am
And the grapevines seemed left for dead
                   C                             G
And the Northern sky looked like the end of days
                Em
The end of days


[Verse]
Am                    C                 G
     The wake-up call to a rented room
                  D                      Am
Sounded like an alarm of impending doom
                C                      G
To warn us it's only a matter of time


[Chorus]
              Am    C   G  D
Before we all burn
              Am    C   G  Em
Before we all burn
              Am    C   G  D
Before we all burn
              Am    C     G*
Before we all burn


[Verse]
Am                   C                        G
      We bought some wine and some paper cups
                    D                            Am
Near your daughters school when we picked her up
               C               G
And drove to a cemetery on a hill
       Em
On a hill


[Verse]
Am                         C                     G
      And we watched the plumes paint the sky gray
                    D                               Am
But she laughed and danced through the field of graves
             C                    G
And there I knew it would be alright
          D
That everything


[Chorus]
           Am    C   G  D
Would be alright
           Am    C   G  Em
Would be alright
           Am    C   G  D
Would be alright
           Am    C     G*
Would be alright


[Bridge]
  B*                                C*
     And the news reports on the radio
              G*              Am*
Said it was getting worse
               C*                   Em*
As the ocean air fanned the flames
  B*
     But I couldn't think
     C*                    G*            Am*
Of anywhere I would of rather been
              C*           D*
To watch it all burn away


[Interlude]
         Am    C   G  D
To burn away
Am  C  G  Em
Am  C  G  D
Am  C  G  G

Am  C  G  D
Am  C  G  Em
Am  C  G  D
Am  C  G  G


[Outro]
  Am*                       C*                    G*
      And the firemen worked in double shifts
                   D*                 Am*
With prayers for rain on their lips
                       C*                  G*
And they knew it was only a matter of time
