Great song, Great band

The chords are pretty much the same throughout but I would like to say
that although ive said the 3rd chord in the progression is (F#m) and this is how I 
play it, sometimes it looks as though the guitar is playing a normal F# though its 
still sung as if over a minor. :) Enjoy

Verse and Chorus are the same

(D)        (A)          (F#m)        (E)        
I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show
And the walls kept tumbling down In the city we love
Great clouds roll over the hills Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
Nothing changed at all.
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
You've been here before?


(D)                  (A)                   (E)
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?


(D)           (A)          (F#m)         (E)
We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settles around us
And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above


But if you close your eyes
(D)       (A)   (F#m)    (E)
Does it almost feels like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
You've been here before?

(D)       (A)   (F#m)    (E)
How am I gonna be an optimist about this 

If you close your eyes

Middle 8 is the same as verse

(D)       (A)         (F#m)         (E)
Oh where do we begin, The rubble or our sins?
Oh where do we begin, The rubble or our sins?
Oh where do we begin, The rubble or our sins?
Oh where do we begin, The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
Nothing changed at all,
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Sounds Good! When playing the F#m, play it with variation 2 when you hover over the chord with the mouse. Sounds really good like that.
