CAPO ON 1

(Intro)

C chordC - F chordF - Em chordEm - G chordG


(Pre-Chorus)

C chordC
It's a really old city
F chordF
Stuck between the dead and the living
Em chordEm G chordG
So I thought to myself sitting on a graveyard shelf
Am chordAm F chordF
As the echo of heartbeats from the ground below my feet
Em chordEm G chordG (once)
Filled a cemetery in the center of Queens



(Verse 1)

C chordC
I started running the maze of
F chordF Em chordEm
The names and the dates some older than others
G chordG
The skyscrapers little tombstone brothers
Am chordAm F chordF
With Manhattan behind her three million stunning reminders
Em chordEm G chordG (once)
Built a cemetery in the center of Queens



(Chorus)

C chordC Em chordEm F chordF
You said remember that life is not meant to be wasted
G chordG C chordC (once)
We can always be chasing the sun

C chordC Em chordEm F chordF
So fill up your lungs and just run
G chordG C chordC (once)
But always be chasing the sun


C chordC - F chordF - Em chordEm - G chordG


(Verse 2)

C chordC F chordF Em chordEm
So how do you do it With just words and just music capture the feeling
G chordG
That my earth is somebody's ceiling
Am chordAm F chordF
can I deliver in sound the weight of the ground
Em chordEm G chordG
Of a cemetery in the center of Queens
C chordC
There's a history through her
F chordF Em chordEm
Sent to us as a gift from the future to show us the proof
G chordG
More than that it's to dare us to move
Am chordAm F chordF
To open our eyes and to learn from the sky
Em chordEm G chordG (once)
From a cemetery in the center of Queens



(Chorus)

C chordC Em chordEm F chordF
You said remember that life is Not meant to be wasted
G chordG C chordC (once)
We can always be chasing the sun

C chordC Em chordEm F chordF
So fill up your lungs and just run
G chordG C chordC (once)
But always be chasing the sun



(Bridge)

C chordC F chordF G chordG
All we can do is try
Am chordAm F chordF G chordG
And live like we're still alive



(Pre Chorus)

C chordC
It's a really old city
F chordF
Stuck between the dead and the living
Em chordEm G chordG
So I thought to myself sitting on a graveyard shelf
Am chordAm F chordF
And the gift of my heartbeat sounds like a symphony
Em chordEm G chordG (once)
Played by a cemetery in the center of Queens



(Chorus)

C chordC Em chordEm F chordF
You said remember that life is not meant to be wasted
G chordG C chordC (once)
We can always be chasing the sun
C chordC Em chordEm F chordF
So fill up your lungs and just run
G chordG C chordC
But always be chasing the sun


(Bridge)

C chordC F chordF G chordG
All we can do is try
Am chordAm F chordF G chordG
And live like we're still alive
C chordC F chordF G chordG
All we can do is try
Am chordAm F chordF G chordG
And live like we're still alive


NOTE FOR ENDING You can either go with the Pre-chorus thing that starts out the song like she does or what I like to do is the first two lines of the chorus except softer and stay in the octave for sun instead of going up like in the rest of the song and fade off with a pretty C chordC chord

Thanks xx
