   I was left,to my own devi......ices .....

 [Intro]

 [Verse 1]

   I was left to my own devices
   Many days fell away with nothing to show
   And the walls kept tumbling down
   In the city that we love
   Great clouds roll over the hills
   Bringing darkness from above

 [Chorus]
                          D 
    But if you close your eyes,
             A 
    Does it almost feel like
     F#m                E 
    Nothing changed at all?
                          D 
    And if you close your eyes,
             A 
    Does it almost feel like
     F#m                 E 
    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?

 [Verse 2]

   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 that we love
   Great clouds roll over the hills
   Bringing darkness from above

 [Chorus]
                        D 
    But if you close your eyes,
             A 
    Does it almost feel like
     F#m                E 
    Nothing changed at all?
                           D 
    And if you close your eyes,
              A 
    Does it almost feel like
     F#m                E 
    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?
