Streetlight Manifesto

played behind the notes. If you pluck the right strings on these chords you will be 
the intro though.

C G Am   F C G   C GAm Em F G

Verse - I like to arpegiate these chords like Tom does live, it sounds really good

C              G                Am
Why do you cry when you know how the story ends?

F                C                  G
How can you laugh when you know that it hurts your friends?

C                      G                  Am
We've all been there once, but you never left

F                 C                   G
This is me coming back to get you out to say goodbye, to make amends

C        G           Am       Em
I'm not leaving this place

F                            G
    Unless I'm leaving with you

C               G                  Am
Cause you're the only person with a half decent heart here

       F             C         G
And I know you will put it to use

           C     G      Am
Until it's gone, gone, gone

F      C     G
Gone, gone, gone

C      G     Am    Em    F     G
Gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, yeah

Prechorus - Power Chords

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Chorus

C                 G         Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

F
I hope you think of me, yeah

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F

Verse

C              G
And if you go, I'll be gone

Am                 F             C          G
And you'll be left alone to live your life, as you please

Am          F            C                 G
But someday you'll agree that I was always meant for you

Am              F                C            G
You were always meant for me and you will see

C     Am     F       G
that you're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

Verse

C           G           Am
Me and Mr. Dylan on the ride home

F       C              G
We had a heart-to-heart about life

C                  G          Am        Em
But neither him or me could decide for ourselves

F               G
If we wanted to outlive that night

C                        G                  Am
Like two children on the playground of the unconfessed souls

F                C               G
Abandoned by our mothers and our lovers and our foes

C                G               Am              Em
If only we were brave enough to live the lives we stole

F                      G
What a wonderful world this could be!

Prechorus

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Chorus

C                 G         Am
When as you close your eyes for the big sleep

F
I hope you think of me, yeah

C
Na, na, na, na, na, na

G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Am                  F
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Verse

C              G
And if you go, I'll be gone

Am                 F             C          G
And you'll be left alone to live your life, as you please

Am          F            C                 G
But someday you'll agree that I was always meant for you

Am              F                C            G
You were always meant for me and you will see

C    Am      F      G
that you're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

C    Am    F      G
You're impossible

Verse

  C            G          Am
So, how many more examples until we break?

   F          C            G
So how many sacrifices must we make?

C                            G
Because we've all been there once before

Am                       Em
And it looks like we've returned once more

F                        G
So is this the beginning or the end?

C                     G
The last two soldiers on the battlefield

Am
Survivors of the war

F                       C                   G
They aim at one another while their mothers beg the lord

            C             G
"If you're listening, I'm missing him

    Am               Em
So somehow bring him home.

F                   G
How did it come to this?"

C                            G
So the soldiers lift their rifles

Am
And they're aiming at the head

F                           C               G
They think of their first love before they take their final breath

C                     G                  Am                Em
And somewhere in the distance they hear something someone said:

F                    G
"How did it come to this?"
