Bm, G, A (x2)

Verse: (Palm Muted)

G                                                              D
From the get-go I knew this was hard to hold,
G                                                              D
Like a crash the whole thing spun out of control,
G
Oh on a wire we were dancing,
A
To kids no consequences,
Bm
Pull the trigger without thinking,
A
There’s only one way down this road,

Chorus: (Open)

B                                                          G
It was like a time-bomb started in motion,
A
We were only destined to explode,
                B  
If I had to pull you out of a wreckage,
A                                         G
I would never let you go,
                    B
We’re like a time-bomb,
A                                             G
Gonna lose it let’s diffuse it,
                            B
Baby we’re like a time-bomb but I need it,
A                                G                   
Wouldn’t have it any other way,

Interlude: (Open)

G

Verse: (Palm Muted)

G                                                                        D
Well there’s no way out of this so let’s stay in,
G                                                                        D
Have a storm that could just soak us to an end,
G
Oh resistance is useless,
A
Just two kids stupid and fearless,
Bm
Like a bullet shooting a lesson,
A
There’s only one day down this road,

Chorus: (Open)

B                                                          G
It was like a time-bomb started in motion,
A
We were only destined to explode,
                B  
If I had to pull you out of a wreckage,
A                                         G
I would never let you go,
                    B
We’re like a time-bomb,
A                                             G
Gonna lose it let’s diffuse it,
                            B
Baby we’re like a time-bomb but I need it,
A                                G                   
Wouldn’t have it any other way,

Interlude: (Open)

G

Bridge: (Palm Muted)

G                           A                             Bm                             A
Had your heart in my hands like a time-bomb ticking,
G                           A                             Bm                             A
It goes off we start again when it breaks we fix it,
G                           A                             Bm                             A
Got my heart in your hands like a time-bomb ticking,
G                           A                             Bm                             A
We should know better though we won’t let go,

Interlude: (Open)

G

Chorus: (Open)

B                                                          G
It was like a time-bomb started in motion,
A
We were only destined to explode,
                B  
If I had to pull you out of a wreckage,
A                                         G
I would never let you go,
                    B
We’re like a time-bomb,
A                                             G
Gonna lose it let’s diffuse it,
                            B
Baby we’re like a time-bomb but I need it,
A                                G                   
Wouldn’t have it any other way,

Outro: (Open)

Bm, G, A (x2)

This is completely accurate because I watched the live video of Alex playing it in 
Brussels on the 15th February 2011 and these were the exact chords he played. 

NOTE: In the studio the band recorded using standard tuning.
