Acoustic version of an awesome song.
I used the following video as my reference
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nEB96x28ZU
and it all seems to be accurate.

Here's The Zolas website containing lyrics and other links

Here are some chords you'll need to know first though
Bm  [224432]
G   [320033]
D   [x00323]
A   [002220]
F#7 [x1435x]

Capo on 3rd fret

VERSE
Bm                     G     D
I dreamt about you the other night
Bm                       G          D
We were there and people started to die
Bm                 G        D
The seas rose to a terrible height
    G     D         G     F#7         
But we survived yes we survived (I don't know why)

VERSE
Bm                        G         D
We watched the grass pile up in the cracks
Bm                    G           D
The birds return, the nights went black
Bm                         G     D
Yeah we were lovers in the great collapse
    G       D         G       F#7
The seasons came, the seasons passed

CHORUS
G                D                A         Em
So free what you love 'cause it's gonna die anyway
G            D            A          Em
Those golden days will be fossilized and you'll scream
G          D           Bm           A
Oh back it up, back it up, but it's not the same
G            D             A              Bm
Though it's enough just to say I knew you well

x3 -> Bm, G, D
x1 -> G, D, G, F#7

VERSE
Bm                      G         D
Now I can't sleep and I can't say no
Bm                 G      D
Civilization ain't got no soul
Bm                  G         D
The tick tock ticks out of control
    G    D         G    F#7
I'm on a roll, I'm on a roll (he's lost control)

VERSE
Bm          G        D
Though when my dream ends
Bm              G      D
It's true we're hardly friends
Bm             G     D
I can't forget those seasons
    G        D        D        F#7
The world is one, the world is one

CHORUS
G                D                A         Em
So free what you love 'cause it's gonna die anyway
G            D            A          Em
Those golden days will be fossilized and we'll scream
G          D           Bm           A
Oh back it up, back it up, but it's not the same
G            D             A              Bm
Though it's enough just to say I knew you well

Or alternately continue the chorus by ending the last line with...
G, D, A, G  
and then start the chorus again as done in the video

Hope you enjoy it!
