[Intro]

(Dm F Am G)2x "Starts after techno"


[Verse]

           Dm    F
The cycle repeated
     Am                     G
as explosions broke in the sky
            Dm   F
all that I needed
        Am                    G
was the one thing I couldn't find
             Dm
And you were there at the turn
F                 Am  G
Waiting to let me know


[Chorus]

                  Dm F
We're building it up
                  C G
To break it back down
                  Dm F
We're building it up
           C  
To burn it down
         G
We can't wait
                      Dm
To burn it to the ground


Dm F Am G


[Verse]

               Dm  F 
The colors conflicted
         Am                      G
as the flames climbed into the clouds
            Dm   F 
I wanted to fix this / but
         Am                    G
couldn't stop from tearing it down

              Dm
And you were there at the turn
F                      Am G
caught in the burning glow
           Dm
And I was there at the turn
F                  Am  G
Waiting to let you know


[Chorus]

                  Dm F
We're building it up
                  C G
To break it back down
                  Dm F
We're building it up
           C  
To burn it down
         
We can't wait
     G                
To burn it to the ground


[Verse]

Dm                                 
You told me yes / You held me high
           F                 
And I believed when you told that lie
                 Am                      
I played that soldier / You played king
                G                     
And struck me down when I kissed that ring
                 Dm                       
You lost that right / to hold that crown
             F                 
I built you up but you let me down
             Am                      
so when you fall / I'll take my turn
               G                       
and fan the flames as your blazes burn


"1 strum each"
              Dm
And you were there at the turn
F                  Am  G
Waiting to let me know


[Chorus]

                  Dm F
We're building it up
                  C G
To break it back down
                  Dm F
We're building it up
           C  
To burn it down
         
We can't wait
     G                Dm
To burn it to the ground

                            
so when you fall / I'll take my turn
               F                      
and fan the flames as your blazes burn 

C
    We can't wait
     G                Dm
To burn it to the ground

so when you fall / I'll take my turn
               F                      
and fan the flames as your blazes burn 

C
    We can't wait
     G                Dm
To burn it to the ground


[Outro]

F Am G
Dm F Am G

This is a really dumb question, but are you supposed to play the chords version to a song or the tabs version? I'm super new to guitar...I don't understand which one to choose?
