   C             Am             G               F

[Verse]
C                       Em
Just because you got it 

You don't have to flaunt it
        F                C      G
With an endless stream of famous men
C                    Em
Pretty as a portrait

Looked like Mamah Borthwick
        F               C   G F
On that Shining Brow of Taliesin

[Chorus]
F                     C
Someone might try and burn it down
Em                        F    G
So you'll have to put the fire out
C        G     C             F          Am    Em                F      G        C
Fortunes spent but that's irrelevant to build something that's sacred till the end

[Interlude]
(Repeat riff x1)

[Verse]
C                     Em
It cost twenty dollars to visit Fallingwater
         F                   C      G
It's the perfect house where no one lives
C                     Em                         F               C      G   F
Maybe someone once did but they got evicted by a busload full of greedy tourists

[Chorus]
F                  C
And it would take a time machine
Em                   F    G
To fulfill all of my fantasies
C               G    C          F
'Cause a hidden dream can be embarrassing
         Am  Em            F      G        C 
And the only thing that's sacred till the end

[Interlude]
(Repeat riff x1)

[Verse]
C
Every time I tempt fate
Em
There's a major earthquake
          F                    C       G
Heard the people scream as the ceiling fell
C 
Every building damaged
Em
Only one left standing
       F                       C  G    F
It was Frank Lloyd Wright's Imperial Hotel

[Chorus]
F           C
A rumination in my mind
Em                           F     G
Winding like the ramp at the Guggenheim
C           G   C
I'm not content
                F           Am    Em                F      G        C
But I'm feeling hesitant to build something that's sacred till the end

[Outro]
(Repeat riff x2)

Just realized the verse is only a chord different from I Will Follow You Into the Dark (Am instead of Em).
