[Intro]

E E B B F# F# G#m G#m


[Verse 1]

E E B B F# F# G#m G#m
Afterlife, oh my God, what an awful word
E E B B F# F# G#m G#m
After all the breath and the dirt and the fires are burnt
E E B B F# F# G#m G#m
And after all this time, and after all the ambulances go
E E B B F# F#
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
G#m G#m
Of the afterglow

G#m G#m
I've gotta know…


[Chorus]

F# F# E E
Can we work it out?
G#m G#m B B F# F#
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
E E
Can we just work it out?
G#m G#m B B
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?
E E G#m G#m
'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out
F# F# E E
'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out


[Verse 2]
(same chords)

Afterlife, I think I saw what happens next
Oh it was just a glimpse of you, like looking through a window
Or a shallow sea
Could you see me?
And after all this time
It's like nothing else we used to know
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
Of the afterglow
I've gotta know…


[Chorus]

F# F# E E
Can we work it out?
G#m G#m B B
Let's scream and shout 'till we work it out
F# F# E E
Can we just work it out?
G#m G#m B B
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?


[Bridge]

But you say
F# F# E E
Oh
G#m G#m
When love is gone
B B
Where does it go?

And you say
F# F# E E
Oh
G#m G#m
When love is gone
B B
Where does it go?
E E
And where do we go?
G#m G#m
Where do we go?
F# F#
Where do we go?
E E
Where do we go?


[Verse 3]
(same chords as above)

And after this
Can it last another night?
After all the bad advice
Had nothing at all to do with life
I've gotta know


[Chorus]

F# F# E E
Can we work it out?
G#m G#m B B
Let's scream and shout 'till we work it out
F# F# E E
Can we just work it out?
G#m G#m B B
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?


[Bridge]

But you say
F# F# E E
Oh
G#m G#m
When love is gone
B B
Where does it go?

And you say
F# F# E E
Oh
G#m G#m
When love is gone
B B
Where does it go?

F# F# E E
Oh
G#m G#m
When love is gone
B B
Where did it go?

F# F# E E
Oh
G#m G#m
When love is gone
B B
Where did it go?
F# F# E E
And where do we go?


[Outro]

G#m G#m B B F# F# E E (cycle)

B B (hold)
It's just an afterlife
It's just an afterlife
It's just an afterlife with you
It's just an afterlife
