Am        Bm
   I can’t, it’s funny that
Em            Esus2
   That I got stopped when I’m walking the streets
Am                     Bm
   Walking down streets, walking down paths 
         Em                   Esus2
With the kids in the back way, I said

Either we’re vain or we’re broken hearted

We fell from sky and universe

When we fell in love with the sound
                 Am                   Bm
Of the birds and all the ocean lights
                Em              Esus2
And the gravity pulling us down

I’m in hell

If the sky would fall

Do we have to start all over again

As sure as the stars in the skies above

We’re going back to the place that we started


[Outro] 

Am          Bm       Em
Born to run until we fell in love

Born to run until we fell
Am          Bm       Em
Born to run until we fell in love

the timing is a little hard if you've never heard the song before, but the tab seems almost perfect. great job dude,

5 stars from me.
