NOTE: These fingerings are not necessarily the exact ones used on the recording; these 
are my suggestions based on the collective sound and chord quality.

===
INTRO:

Gadd9/D

===
VERSE ONE:

D
Who's the boy you like the most?
Em7
Is he teasing you with underage?
Bm
Could he be waving from a tropical sunset?
D
Static silhouette somehow
Em7
Single in this bed someday

===
CHORUS:

Bm                        D
Quiet till it falls, falls, falls; Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome
A
Focus looking forward, the Colosseum
Bm7
Oh no, what did I say? What can I say?
G6                         C#m7b5
Rome, Rome, many tears are falling here
                                      D
I'll be driving; you'll look the other way

===
VERSE TWO:

D
That ain't easy to ignore
Em7
With your shutters open all the way
Bm                                 D
When it's candlelight I see I go insane

Distant silhouette somehow
Em7
We shared a cigarette somewhere

===
CHORUS TWO:

Bm                         Gadd9
Addict till it falls, falls, falls; Rome, Rome, Rome, Rome
A
Focus looking forward, the Colosseum
Bm7
Oh no, what did I say? What can I say?
G6                         A9
Rome, Rome, many tears are falling here

I'll be driving; you'll look the other way

===
BREAK:

| D | (x4)
| D | Em7 | Bm7 | (x4)

===
VERSE THREE: (no bass)

Gadd9
Always and forevermore
A9
I call to say I'm on the way
D                              Gadd9
Two thousand years remain in a trash can

Let burn the cigarette somewhere
A9/C#
Ashes till it fall, fall, falls

===
BREAK TWO:

--- NOTE ---
At this point in the song, the keyboard plays the chords, and the guitar just holds a D 
note until the outro. The keyboard could be replaced by another guitar playing the 
following chords:

| Gadd9 | "" | Em7 | "" | C#m7b5 | "" | Bm7 | A | (x2)

All together, these are the chords created:

| Gadd9 | "" | Em7 | "" | C#m7(B5,B9) | "" 
| Bm7 Aadd11 | (x2)
---

===
BRIDGE:

Gadd9      Em7               C#m7(B5,B9)   
Bm7  A
I stand outside under broken leaves
  Gadd9               Em7                         
C#m7(B5,B9)    Bm7   Aadd11
I know I can't do without; the future's trying to wait
Gadd9             Em7
I never loved you; and if I loved you
C#m7(B5,B9)        Bm7    Aadd11
I wouldn't say I'm sorry, oh no
Gadd9      Em7               Bm/F#   F#/A#
I stand outside under broken leaves

===
VERSE FOUR:

Gadd9                    A9
Always and forever more; We're together dead and lonely
Bm7                          Gadd9
I thought I couldn't do this without you
                         A9
Single in this bed somewhere

Ashes till it fall, fall, falls

===
OUTRO:

| D | Em7 | Bm7 |

End on D.

Playing it in 7th fret makes it easier......transpose down 7 semi tones and then use the new chords....on chord doest show.....C#m7b5 should become F#m7b5 but i play it as F#m and its fine
