[Intro]
Am  F  C  G  2x


[Verse]
Dm       A#                F        C
  Do you know what's worth fighting for
Dm          A#        F     C
  When it's not worth dying for?
Dm        A#       F       C
  Does it take you breath away
        A#                 C
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Dm         A#          F       C
  Does the pain weight out the pride?
Dm        A#         F        C
  And you look for a place to hide?
Dm         A#             F       C
  Does someone break your heart inside?
          A#   C
You're in ruins

[Chorus]
F5    C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5            G#5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5    C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5
Throw up your
G#5  F5        C5
arms into the sky
        G#5  F5  C5
You and I


[Verse]
Dm            A#     F          C
  When you're at the end of the road
Dm        A#       F           C
  And you lost all sense of control
Dm         A#            F           C
  And your thoughts have taken their toll
          A#                             C
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Dm     A#             F      C
  Your faith walks on broken glass
Dm        A#       F       C
  And the hangover doesn't pass
Dm          A#   F        C
  Nothing's ever built to last
          A#   C
You're in ruins


[Chorus]
F5    C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5            G#5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5    C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5
Throw up your
G#5  F5        C5
arms into the sky
        G#5  F5  C5
You and I


[Bridge]
Dm        A#     F            C
  Did you try to live on your own
Dm         A#              F         A
  When you burned down the house and home?
Dm         A#       F            A
  Did you stand too close to the fire?
        A#                 C
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone


[Verse]
Dm          A#      F            C
  When it's time to live and let die
Dm        A#         F      C
  And you can't get another try
Dm          A#          F         C
  Something inside this heart has died
            A#~
You're in ruins


[Chorus]
F5    C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5            G#5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5    C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5
Throw up your
G#5  F5        C5
arms into the sky
F5    C   D5
One, 21 guns
C5            G#5
Lay down your arms
F5          C5
Give up the fight
F5    C5   D5
One, 21 guns
C5
Throw up your
G#5  F5        C5
arms into the sky
        G#5  F5   C5~
You and I
