[Intro]

F#m E (x2)

[Verse]

F#m                           E
We wipe the chaff from our hands
                         F#m
And the sweat off of our brows
                            E
We mourn the old setting sun
                     F#m
And our empty bank accounts
                            E                       F#m
For all the damages we've done in the service of a dream
           E                D
They say, baby, you'll pay dearly

[Interlude]

F#m E (x2)

[Verse]

F#m                           E
Oh how these roads make us old
                           F#m
And the sunrise makes us quake
                                E
We live for scant scraps of hope
                         F#m
Laid along the interstate
                          E                             F#m
Of all the places we'll go, we'll wind up memory and debris
               E                  D
And I'll say, kid, you're coming with me

[Chorus]

A             A/G#         F#m               E          D    E
I'll close my eyes and pretend to pray that rain never ends
A             A/G#         F#m          E         D     E
But when the oceans dry up, I'll know enough is enough
     D         E
And I'll sing softly

[Interlude]

F#m E (x2)

[Verse]

F#m                               E
We'll take the last thing we know
                          F#m
And we'll let it run our lives
                               E
Serenade the devil with those songs
                      F#m
We've sang too many times
                                E                             F#m
That just blow by and leave us numb with the thrill of our defeat
               E           D
I'll keep the habit if it kills me

[Chorus]

A             A/G#         F#m               E          D    E
I'll close my eyes and pretend to pray that rain never ends
A             A/G#         F#m          E         D     E
But when the oceans dry up, I'll know enough is enough
     D         E
And I'll sing softly
A            A/G#       F#m    E  
I guess I'll see you around
     D         E
And I'll sing softly
A            A/G#       F#m   E         D    E
I guess I'll see you around, see you around

[Interlude]

D A E F#m E (x2)

[Outro]

D     A
Holy ghost
        E                  F#m     E          
Let us live until we're forgotten
D        A
Hold me close
        E                   F#m    E
To the floors of masterless oceans
D     A
Holy ghost
        E                   F#m    E
To the souls of motherless orphans
D        A
Hold me close
         E                            F#m    E  D
Til our histories lay still in their coffins
