[Intro]

C  G  Em  D (x2)


[Verse 1]

C          G         Em          D
I was left to my own de-v-i-c-e-s
C         G              Em         D
Many days fell away with nothing to show


[Pre-Chorus]

C                           G
And the walls kept tumbling down
                   Em       D
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
C                          G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       Em      D
Bringing darkness from a-b-o-v-e


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 2]

C              G              Em         D
We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
C            G           Em             D
In your pose as the dust settles around us


[Pre-Chorus]

C                           G
And the walls kept tumbling down
                    Em      D
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
C                          G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       Em      D
Bringing darkness from a-b-o-v-e


[Chorus]

                      C
But if you close your eyes,
        G
Does it almost feel like
Em                 D
Nothing changed at all?
                      C
And if you close your eyes,
        G
Does it almost feel like
Em                D       
You've been here before?


C                    G         D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
C                    G         D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?


[Instrumental]

C   G   Em   D


[Bridge]

C              G
Oh where do we begin?
Em                D
The rubble or our sins?
C              G
Oh where do we begin?
Em                D
The rubble or our sins?


[Pre-Chorus]

C                           G
And the walls kept tumbling down
                    Em      D
In the city that we l-o-v-e-d
C                          G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       Em       D
Bringing darkness from a-b-o-v-e


[Chorus]

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

                      C
But if you close your eyes,
        G
Does it almost feel like
Em                  D
Nothing changed at all?


[Outro]

C   G   Em   D (x2)

Key is correct with original version from Bastille. Please do not use other versions from (for example) Youtube since people change key and speed so it won't get deleted because of copyrights.

Furthermore, chords are not correct. Switch Em and G throughout the song, go ahead and try it.

This is on the RIGHT track, but it's still a little wrong. The correct chord progression is: C-G-Em-D

Or to get precise: D-A-F#m-E
