Looking Out
Give up the Ghost

Standard tuning, no capo

G                          Em                        C
I went out looking for the answers and never left my town. 
                    G                                  D
I’m no good at understanding, but I’m good at standing ground. 
 G                         Em                      
And when I asked a corner preacher I couldn’t hear him for my 
C                       G                           D       
youth. Some people get religion some people get the truth. I
               C                      G
never get the truth, I never get the truth.

Chorus:
Bm                            C                                G
I know the darkness falls on you. And it’s just a point of view
                            Em                          C
When you’re outside looking in you belong to someone and when 
                     Am
you feel like giving in and the coming of the end, like your 
                    C (Strum)            G
heart can break in two, someone loves you.


G                         Em                                C
I lay this suitcase on my chest so I can feel somebody’s weight. 
                 G                             D
And I lay you to rest just to feel a give and take? 
G                        Em                             C
I got a new interpretation and it’s a better point of view, you 
                    G                              D          
were looking for a landslide I was looking out for you, I was 
                 C                               G
looking out for you, someone’s looking out for you

Chorus:
Bm                            C                                G
I know the darkness falls on you. And it’s just a point of view
                            Em                          C
When you’re outside looking in you belong to someone and when 
                     Am
you feel like giving in and the coming of the end, like your 
                    C                     G
heart can break in two, someone loves you.

Bridge
G (strum)                     Em (strum)
I am afraid of crossing lines. I am afraid of flying blind.  

C (strum)                  G(Strum)               D(strum)to Am
afraid of inquiring minds. Afraid of being left behind. 

G                             Em                           C
I close my eyes I think of you, I take a step I think of you, 
                               G                             D
I catch my breath I think of you, I cannot rest I think of you

Last Chorus
Bm                            C             
My one and only wrecking ball, and you’re cutting through my 
G                                   D                         Em
walls. When you’re outside looking in you belong to someone and 
                          C                         Am               
when you feel like giving in and the coming of the end, like 
                          C                    G
your heart could break in two, someone loves you.

Pretty good, but I have a couple corrections.

The chorus goes like this:
Bm C
I know the darkness pulls on you
G
But it's just a point of view
D
When you're outside looking in
Em
You belong to someone
C
And when you feel like giving in
A7
And the coming of the end
C
It's like your heart could break in two
G
Someone loves you

OK, so my formatting didn't work, but you can figure out where each chord is played (on the last word of the line, or right after, in the case of Em and the last G). :)
