[Intro]

G,C,Em,D,C


[Verse 1]


                    G                        C
I say remember this moment In the back of my mind
                            Em
The time we stood with our shaking hands
     D                      C
The crowds in stands went wild 
                          G
We were the kings and the queens
                      C
And they read off our names 
                              Em
The night you danced like you knew our lives
       D              C
Would never be the same
                           Em                      C
You held your head like a hero On a history book page
                     Em   D                      C
It was the end of a decade But the start of an age


[Chorus]

       G                          C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C               G
One day we will be remembered


[Verse 2]

                      G                             C
I said remember this feeling I passed the pictures around
                          Em                 D
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines
           C
Wishing for right now
                          G                                          C
We are the kings and the queens You traded your baseball cap for a crown
                       Em              D                    C
When they gave us our trophies And we held them up for our town
                    Em                              C
And the cynics were outraged Screaming, "this is absurd"
                       Em
'Cause for a moment a band of thieves in 
D                        C
ripped up jeans got to rule the world


[Chorus]

       G                          C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em                 D
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid
      G                           C
Long live all the mountains we moved
                      Em
I had the time of my life
                       D
Fighting dragons with you
                        G                     C
I was screaming, "long live the look on your face"
                       Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C                G
One day we will be remembered


[Bridge]

C            Em
Hold on to spinning around
    C     Em
Confetti falls to the ground
          C
May these memories break our fall


[Verse 3]

                 G
And you take a moment
            C
Promise me this:
                          Em
That you'll stand by me forever
        D                          C
But if God forbid fate should step in
                     G
And force us into a goodbye
                          C
If you have children someday
                        Em     D
When they point to the pictures
                     C
Please tell them my name
                    C
Tell them how the crowds went wild
                 D
Tell them how I hope they shine


[Chorus]

      G                            C
Long live the walls we crashed through
                      Em         D
I had the time of my life with you
           G                          C
Long,long live the walls we crashed through
                         Em                   D
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                        G                      C
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
                         Em                 D
And bring on all the pretenders I'm not afraid
      G                           C
Long live all the mountains we moved
                      Em
I had the time of my life
                       D
Fighting dragons with you
      G                     C
long live the look on your face
                       Em
And bring on all the pretenders
     C                G
One day we will be remembered
