Intro (Listen to the original song for the rhythm):

Am C F

Am Em F

First Verse:

           Am               C            F
There's a lightning storm each and every night
          Am         Em        F
Crashing inside you like motorbikes
   Am               C          F
We toss and turn, sleep so loud
           Am
Grind the teeth in our
Em          F                   Am
Our empty mouths (are empty...)

Second Verse:

            Am        C         F
There's a forest fire burning bright
            Am             Em          F
Spreading quickly towards our last rites
     Am           C            F
Nowhere to run, pointless to hide
          Am                    Em        F
Just lay there and scream, pretending to try
               Am
Pretending...

Chorus:

              F                   Am
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
C           F               Am
Everyone learns faster on fire
C               F             Am
Things took a turn, lost all desire
      C            F              C
You live and you burn
      F                   Am 
You live and you burn

Third Verse:

       Am                C         F
This impending doom is left deep inside
             Am        Em              F
And it's haunting you each and every night
        Am                  C       F
Like starving wolves    drowning sheep
     Am                  Em         F   
We close our eyes, pretending to sleep
                   Am
Descending...

Chorus:
   
              F                   Am
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
C           F               Am
Everyone learns faster on fire
C               F             Am
Things took a turn, lost all desire
      C            F              C
You live and you burn
      F                
You live and...

Bridge:

      Am7            C      Fadd9
Like hell we are anxiously waiting
      Am7            C      Fadd9
Like hell burning silently strong
     Am7          C         Fadd9  C
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
      Fadd9                C
And somehow this hell is home

Chorus:

              F                   Am
Intending to burn, pretending to fight it
C           F               Am
Everyone learns faster on fire
C               F             Am
Things took a turn, lost all desire
      C            F              C
You live and you burn
      F                
You live and...

Bridge:

      Am7            C      Fadd9
Like hell we are anxiously waiting
      Am7            C      Fadd9
Like hell burning silently strong
     Am7          C         Fadd9  C
Somehow we fell down by the wayside
      Fadd9                C
And somehow this hell is home
       F                C    Am
Right now, this hell is my home
