[Intro] E A I've conjured up a plan, Cm7 F#7 as a sentimental man, Am E to destroy our things in style. E A It involves our belongings in a pile, Cm7 F#7 some lighter fluid and a smile, Am E and some matches with "Chicago" inscribed on every stick. [Verse] E A Strangers could see the flames for miles Cm7 F#7 -- from any highway or any hilltop -- Am and we'd pass out as the smoke billows C Bm E and spills into our young lungs. [Pre-Chorus] E A With what strength that we'd have left Cm7 F#7 we'd save each others final breaths Am E for a distressed phone call to 9-1-1 A and in minutes they'd arrive, Cm7 F#7 horrified at what they might find. [Chorus] Am Gbm Am Gbm It'd be you and I and a pile of ashes C Bm E hand in hand and in each others arms, C Bm E hand in hand and in each others arms, C Bm E hand in hand and in each others arms... [Bridge] Cm7 F#7 but it's not that bad. C They revived me on the scene A E and took my temperature and pulse Cm7 F#7 and while the handsome paramedic gave you mouth-to-mouth, A I bit my tongue C Bm E in hopes they could save your life, C Bm E in hopes they could save your life. C Bm C Bm Just you and I and a pile of ashes C Bm E hand in hand and in each others arms. [Outro] E A In a week when we look back, Cm7 F#7 we'll be bandaged up, but laugh it off. Am And your skin might be thicker and my stuff, it might be gone, C Bm E but we'll have crammed everything we need in this song. C Bm E We'll have everything we'd need inside this song. C Bm C Bm Just you and I and a pile of ashes C Bm E hand in hand and in each others arms.
