             A
It's like we both have just arrived here

Like we've just stepped off a
               Dmaj7
plane in a new town
                Esus4
and the sun was out.
      A
I was talking, you would point your ear at me
                             Dmaj7
like I was making some sweet sound
                   Esus4
you said, "make it loud"
           Bm
But we can never come back here again
       Dsus2              A   Asus4
we can only hope... to forget.
                 A
Walked through a cemetery archway
                                 Dmaj7
into a wood that hung so happily alone
                       Esus4
but the words were all wrong.
           A
You traded all my ill affections
                                 Dmaj7
for directions to a party across town.

                    Esus4
You bring the house down.
           Bm
But we can never go back there again
       Dsus2
we can only hope.

So...
A
Burned is the house.
Dsus2
Gone is the street.
F#m7                 E
Here is the same disappointing retreat.
      A                        Dsus2
And I need it like hell if I'd lie to myself
   F#m7                         E
to think I could live that life over again.
          A
Where the cuts were like guilt
        Dsus2
and the taste for your eyes
        F#m7 
I say, "we're up when I
         E
couldn't just say goodnight"
       F#m7     A         D
If you cry me a river you can baptize me in
        F#m7            A 
I say, "I guess that's it, now I've
D            E
fucking seen everything"

A            Dsus2         
Woah's
             A                         F#m7
You were the first real choice I would make, 
       E            Dsus2  E
but we all make mistakes,  so...

(Like the beginning)
Jumped overboard because the
water’s always greener
when the sun shines on the sea
Would you drown for me?
It's just as deep as you can make it
you tread water when you could
stand on your knees
but don't pray to me.
Cause when the lamp ray's taken all it can
it will keep you dead.

But but, 

Burned is the house.
Gone is the street.
Here is the same disappointing retreat.
And I need it like hell if I'd lie to myself
to think I could live that life over again.
Where the cuts were like guilt
and the taste for your eyes
I say, "we're up when I
couldn't just say goodnight"
If you cry me a river you can baptize me in
I say, "I guess that's it, yeah, 
I've fucking seen everything now"

A         F#m7    E    Dsus4
A         F#m7    E    Dsus4
A      D
Woah's

You were the first real choice I would make, 
You were the only one that I would take
Now you'll take til I go.

You were the first real choice I would make, 
but we all make mistakes, so...

Good job, there's only i think a careless mistake in the chorus, because when he says " and i need it like hell.." it goes F#m A D as later when he says " if you cry me a river..".
Thank you anyway for posting the tab of this awesome song!
