Song 1: Mr Brightside
Capo 1


[Intro]
C C/B  F

[Verse 1]
C                   C/B
  Coming out of my cage
                          F
And I've been doing just fine
F
Gotta gotta be down

Because I want it all
C                       C/B
  It started out with a kiss
                         F
How did it end up like this?
N.C
It was only a kiss

It was only a kiss
C                   C/B
  Now I'm falling asleep
                     F
And she's calling a cab
F
While he's having a smoke

And she's taking the drag
C                      C/B
  Now they're going to bed
                   F
And my stomach is sick
N.C
And it's all in my head
F
But she's touching his

[Pre-Chorus]
 Am
Сhest now
                   G
He takes off her dress now
       F
Let me go
Am
  I just can't look
      G
It's killing me
     F
And taking control

[Chorus]
C
Jealousy
F               Am
Turning saints into the sea
G                      C
Swimming through sick lullabies
F               Am
Choking on your alibis
G                  C
But it's just the price I pay
F          Am
Destiny is calling me
G          C     F
Open up my eager eyes
Am                  G
   ‘Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

[Instrumental]
C   F  Am   G
C   F  Am   G

Song 2: Somebody Told Me
Capo 1


[Verse]

Am
Breaking my back just to know your name
                                            Dm              F
Seventeen tracks and I've had it with this game
Am
I'm breaking my back just to know your name
Am
But heaven ain't close in a place like this
Am                                 Dm              F
Anything goes but don't blink you might miss
Am
Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
Am
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this
 F                   G                    Am
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight
 F                       G
Never thought I'd let a rumor ruin my moonlight


[Chorus]

              Am
Well somebody told me
           F
You had a boyfriend
                   G
Who looked like a girlfriend
               E            Am
That I had in February of last year
          F
It's not confidential
          G
I've got potential


[Verse]

Am
Ready? Let's roll onto something new
                                                    Dm              F
Taking its toll and I'm leaving without you
Am
Ready? Let's roll onto something new
Am
But heaven ain't close in a place like this
Am                                                  Dm              F
Anything goes but don't blink you might miss
Am
Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
Am
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this
F                                  G      Am
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight

          F
It's not confidential
          G
I've got potential
                  E
A rushin', a rushin' around


[Bridge]

F         G         C
Pace yourself from me
        F     C      F
I said maybe baby please
                 Am       G     F
But I just don't know now
   E                              G
When all I wanna do is try


[Chorus]

              Am

Capo 2


[Intro]
E                              E7
When there's nowhere else to run
                           A
Is there room for one more son?
         E
One more son?
       C#m
If you can hold on,
       A                E
If you can hold on, hold on.


[Verse]
E
I want to stand up, I want to let go
                                        A
You know you know - no, you don't, you don't.
                                    E
I want to shine on in the hearts of men.

I want a meaning from the back of my broken hand.

E
Another head aches, another heart breaks.
                              A
I'm so much older than I can take.
                                     E
And my affection, well it comes and goes.

I need direction to perfection, no no no no


[Hook]
E
Help me out, yeah

You know you gotta help me out, yeah
                           A
Oh don't you put me on the back burner,

You know you gotta help me out, yeah.


[Verse]
E
And when there's nowhere else to run
                              A
Is there room for one more son?

These changes ain't changing me,
     E
The cold-hearted boy I used to be.


[Chorus]
E
Yeah, you know you gotta help me out, yeah
                           A
Oh don't you put me on the back burner
                            E
You know you gotta help me out, yeah
                            C#m
You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah


[Bridge]
                            A
You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah
                            E
You're gonna bring yourself down.

E
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier

I got soul, but I'm not a soldier
A
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier
E
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier (2x)
C#m
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier
A                               E
I got soul, but I'm not a soldier


[Chorus]
E
Yeah, you know you gotta help me out, yeah
                           A
Oh don't you put me on the back burner
                            E
You know you gotta help me out, yeah
                            E
You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah

You're gonna bring yourself down, yeah
                           A
Oh don't you put me on the back burner,
                            E
You're gonna bring yourself down


[Outro]
C#m      F#m               A
Over and in, last call for sin.
                                     B
While everyone's lost, the battle is won
                                E
With all these things that I've done.
                                C#m
With all these things that I've done.
       A                   B           E
If you can hold on, if you can hold on...

You sit there in your heart-ache
    B              E
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
 E                F#       G#m

When you were young

Can we climb this mountain

I dont know

Higher now than ever before

[Verse 1]

C                  Am7
  On the corner of main street
Gsus4                       G
  Just tryin' to keep it in line
C                        Am7
  You say you wanna move on and
Gsus4                   G
  You say I'm falling behind
                   C     Am7    Gsus4    G
Can you read my mind?

Can you read my mind?


[Verse 2]

C                     Am7
  I never really gave up on
Gsus4                  G
  Breakin' out of this two-star town
C                       Am7
  I got the green light, I got a little fight
Gsus4                        G

The good old days, the honest man

The restless heart, the promised land
         F                C
A subtle kiss that no one sees
         G                    G
A broken wrist and a big trapeze
                F                  C
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
            G         E7       Am
Coz I don't shine if you don't shine
           F                   G
Before you go, can you read my mind?


[Verse 3]

C                         Am7
  It’s funny how you just break down
Gsus4             G
  Waitin' on some sign
         C                       Am7
  I pull up to the front of your driveway
Gsus4                   G
  With magic soakin' my spine
                   C      Am7     Gsus4     G
Can you read my mind?
                   C      Am7     Gsus4     G
Can you read my mind?


[Chorus]

            F                 C
The teenage queen, the loaded gun
              G                 G
The drop dead dream, the chosen one
           F                C
A southern drawl, a world unseen
       G                G
A city wall and a trampoline
                F                  C
Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
              G        E7        Am
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
           F     F
Before you jump,    tell me what you

   Slippin’ in my faith until I fall
           G
He never returned that call
G                  F                  C
   Woman, open the door, don't let it sting
                     G           G
I wanna breathe that fire again,   she said
        Am                 G
I don't mind, if you don't mind
              F                  C
Cause I don't shine if you don't shine

Song 8: For Reasons Unknown
Capo 3


[Verse 1]

   F
I pack my case. I check my face.
                    C                           G
I look a little bit older. I look a little bit colder.
      F
With one deep breath, and one big step,
                     C                           G
I move a little bit closer. I move a little bit closer.


[Bridge]

      F
For reasons unknown. I caught my stride. I flew and flied.
           C                            G          E
I know if destiny's kind, I've got the rest on my mind.


[Chorus]

        Am                             F
But my heart, it don't beat, it don't beat the way it used to.
        C                           G            E
And my eyes, they don't see you no more.
        Am                                 F
And my lips, they don't kiss, they don't kiss the way they used to,
        C                           G         E
and my eyes don't recognize you no more.


[Bridge]

     C         F       Am         G
For reasons unknown;
     C         F       Am         G
for reasons unknown


[Verse]

              F
There was an open chair. We sat down in the open chair.
           C                            G          E
I said if destiny's kind, I've got the rest on my mind.


[Chorus]

But my heart, it don't beat, it don't beat the way it used to.
        C                           G        E
And my eyes, they don't see you no more.
        Am                                F
And my lips, they don't kiss, they don't kiss the way they used to,
        C                           G        E
and my eyes don't recognize you at all.


[Bridge]

     C         F       Am         G
For reasons unknown;
     C         F       Am         G
for reasons unknown


[Chorus]

            C              F              Am               G
I said my heart, it don't beat, it don't beat the way it used to
        C               F           Am      G
and my eyes don't recognize you no more.
        Am               F                C                 G
And my lips, they don't kiss, they don't kiss the way they used to,
        Am              F           C        G

Up to the platform of surrender I was brought, but I was kind.

Close your eyes, clear your heart.

  It started with a low light,  next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed.
                      C#m        B                       B              E
And then they took my blood type,  they left a strange impression in my head.
                    E      E                         E                   B
You know that I was hopin',  that I could leave this starcrossed world behind.
                     C#m  B                      B
But when they cut me open,  I guess I changed my mind.


[Pre-Chorus 1]

        A      B               C#m       G#m
And you know I might have just flown too far
         A          B                  C#m              G#m
from the floor this time, 'cos they're calling me by my name.

And they’re zipping white light beams, disregarding bombs and satellites.
B              B             B              B
  That was the turning point,  that was one lonely night.


[Chorus 1]

E                       C#m          E                         A
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
A                     C#m                 G#m                B
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."


[Verse 2]

  Well now I'm back at home and,  I'm looking forward to this life I live.
                    C#m      B               B              E
You know it's gonna haunt me,  so hesitation to this life I give.
                          E    E                           E                     B
You think you might cross over,  you're caught between the devil & the deep blue sea.
                   C#m  B                      B
You better look it over,  before you make that leap.


[Pre-Chorus 2]

        A        B           C#m        G#m
And you know I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   A         B           C#m        G#m
at night sometimes, that justify my claim.
        A                     B                        G#m        C#m
And the public don't dwell on my transmission, 'cos it wasn't televised.
B                B             B            B
  But it was the turning point,  oh, what a lonely night!

  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
A                     C#m                 G#m                B

           D           D                     A                  G
A dustland fairytale beginning, just another white trash county kiss.
          D               D                D               D
In 'Sixty-One, long brown hair and foolish eyes.
D                           D                          A                     G
  He looked just like you'd want him to - some kind of slick chrome American prince.
  A             Bm         Bm              G          G
A blue jean serenade, Moon River, what you do to me.
    E                    E
But I don't believe you.


[Chorus]
D           D               Gmaj7/B           Gmaj7/B
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D                   D/F#
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D/F#          (D/A#)    Bm          A                 D             D
  I saw the minute that I turned away, I got my money on a palm tonight.


[Verse]
    D                 D            A              G
The change came in disguise of revelation set his soul on fire.
    D/A             Gmaj7/B         D             D
She says she always knew he'd come around.
        D            D                 Bm                  Bm
And the decades disappear like sinking ships that we persevere.
             G                  G/B            D         D
God gives us hope, but we still fear, we don't know, the mind is poison.
Bm               Bm                G              G
  Castles in the sky sit stranded, vandalised.
    E                      E
The drawbridge is closing.


[Chorus]
D/A         D/A             Gmaj7/B           Gmaj7/B
  Saw Cinderella in a party dress but she was looking for a nightgown.
A           A                     D                   D/F#
  I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, he's getting ready for the showdown.
G           D/F#             (D/A#)     Bm               A                 D
  I saw the ending when they turned the page, I threw my money and I ran away.
                D/F#                   A
Straight to the valley of the great divide.


[Middle Eight:]
A                          D     D               (A)        G
  Out where the dreams all hide,   out where the wind don't blow.
G              (A)        Bm   Bm        (A)       D
  Out here the good girls die,   and the sky won't snow.
D              (A)        G     G              (A)         G
  Out here the bird don't sing,   out here the field don't grow.
G              (A)        Bm    B7                        E       E7
  Out here the bell don't ring,   out here the bell don't ring.
G     G                         D/A
        Out here the good girls die.


[Outro]
          D/A                  Gmaj7/B            Gmaj7/B
Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge.
A              A                        D          D/F#
  Oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege? And everybody needs you.
G                D/F#         (D/A#)   Bm              A                       D
  Is there still magic in the midnight sun? Or did you leave it back in 'Sixty-One?
       D/F#                     G     G               (A)         D
In the cadence of a young man's eyes,   and where the dreams roll high




Song 12: Runaways
Capo


[Intro]

C G F - F C G x2


[Verse]

 C           G              F
Blonde hair blowing in the summer wind
 F         C           G
Blue eyed girl playing in the sand
      C           G            F
I've been on the trail for a little while
     F            C              G                      F
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand

         Am
Teenage rush
         Dm
She said
                   G
Ain't we all just runaways?
        F                  Am
We got time and that ain't much


[Chorus]

          G            F
We can't wait 'till tomorrow
           G                 Am
You gotta know that this is real
       F
Baby, why you wanna fight it?
         Am         C         F
It's the one thing you can't choose
   G Am F
Oh!


[Verse]

C         G          F
We got engaged on a friday night
   F            C           G
I swore on the head of our unborn child
     C             G           F
That I could take care of the three of us
    F              C          G                        F
But I've got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild

            Am
It's in my blood
Dm                          G
  You said she might just runaway
           F              Am
Somewhere else, someplace good


[Chorus]

          G           F
We can't wait 'till tomorrow
           G                 Am
You gotta know that this is real
       F
Baby, why you wanna fight it?
         Am         C         F
It's the one thing you can't choose
              G
Let's take a chance, baby we can't lose


[Post-Chorus]

                  C   G    F
Ain't we all just runaways?
                  F
I knew it when I met you
C              G       C   G   F
I'm not gonna let you runaway
                  F
I knew it when I held you
   C             G
I wasn't letting go


[Verse]

            Em                       Am
We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams
           F
Hold each other 'till the morning light
    C                     Am
We used to laugh, now we only fight
 G                    F
Baby are you lonesome now?

            C         G         F
At night I come home after they go to sleep
         F         C       G
Like a stumbling ghost I haunt this hall
            C        G           F
There's a picture of us on our wedding day
        F        C          G                     F
I recognize the girl but I can't settle in these walls


[Chorus]

          G          F
We can't wait 'till tomorrow
           G                Am
No we're caught up in the appeal
       F
Baby, why you wanna hide it?
          Am        C      F
It's the last thing on my mind (Why you wanna hide it?)
   G
I turn the engine over and my body just comes alive


[Post-Chorus]

                  C   G    F
Ain't we all just runaways?
                 F
I knew it when I met you
C              G       C  G   F
I'm not gonna let you runaway
                  F
I knew it when I held you
   C             G
I wasn't letting go


[Outro]

                  C   G    F
Ain't we all just runaways?
F  C G   C   G   F
Yeeeaah, runaways (Ain't we all just runaways?)

Capo 3


[Intro]
G


[Verse]
G                                         Dsus4
You were standing with your girlfriends in the streets
Cadd9          Em7    Dsus4            Em7 Cadd9 Em7 Dsus4
Falling back on forever, I wonder what you came to be
G                                         Dsus4
I was new in town, the boy with the eager eyes
Cadd9           Em7    Dsus4              Em7 Cadd9 Em7 Dsus4
I never was a quitter, oblivious to schoolgirls' lies

Cadd9                           Em7
When I look back on those neon nights
The leather seats, the passage rite
Cadd9                      Em7 Dsus4
I feel the heat, I see the light

G
Miss Atomic Bomb
             Dsus4
Making out, we've got the radio on
Cadd9                      Em7
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Cadd9                      Em7 Dsus4
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone


[Chorus]
G
Racing shadows in the moonlight
          Dsus4
Through the desert on a hot night
Cadd9                       Em7
And for a second there we'd won
Cadd9                       Em7 Dsus4
Yeah, we were innocent and young

G  -  Dsus4  -  Cadd9  -  Em7  -  Cadd9  -  Em7 Dsus4 (x2)


[Verse]
G                                               Dsus4
Cast out of the night, well you've got a foolish heart
Cadd9                       Em7                         A7sus4     Em7 Dsus4
So you took your place but the fall from grace was the hardest part
G                                                Dsus4
It feels just like a dagger buried deep in your back
You run for cover but you can't escape the second attack
Cadd9                                         Em7
Your soul was innocent, she kissed him and she painted it black
Cadd9                                            Em7 A7sus4
You should have seen your little face, burnin' for love
Em7 Dsus4
Holdin on' for your life

Cadd9                       Em7
All that I wanted was a little touch,
A little tenderness and truth, I didn't ask for much, no
Cadd9
Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time

G
Miss Atomic Bomb
        Dsus4
Making out, we've got the radio on
Cadd9                        Em7
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Cadd9                        Em7 Dsus4
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone


[Chorus]
G
Racing shadows in the moonlight
Dsus4
We're taking chances on a hot night
Cadd9                          Em7
And for a second there we'd won
Cadd9                          Em7 Dsus4
Yeah we were innocent and young


G
The dust cloud has settled, and my eyes are clear
But sometimes in dreams of impact I still hear
G                                Dsus4
Miss Atomic Bomb, I'm standing here
Cadd9
Sweat on my skin
          Em7                 Cadd9
And this love that I've cradled
             Em7 Dsus4              G
Is wearing thin (Miss Atomic Bomb)
                      Dsus4                 Cadd9
But I'm standing here and you're too late
   Em7            Cadd9          Em7 Dsus4
Your shock-wave whisper has sealed your fate

G                                                     Dsus4
It feels just like a dagger buried deep in your back (It's so cruel [?])
You run for cover but you can't escape the second attack (and you turn your back, you're so)
Cadd9                                             Em7
Your soul was innocent, she kissed him and she painted it black (on a losing game)
Cadd9                                             Em7 Dsus4
You should have seen your little face, burning for love,

G
(Miss Atomic Bomb) Holdin' on for your life
Dsus4
But you can't survive (All that I wanted was a little touch)
G                                                     Dsus4
When you want it all (A little tenderness and truth, I didn't ask for much)
Cadd9                                              Em7
There's another side (Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time)

E                      B
 Step out into the Indian dust
C#m
 I can feel the cracks in my spirit
A                     B
 They're starting to bust
E
 Drive by your house
           B
 Nobody's home
C#m                                 A             B
 I'm trying to tell myself that I'm better off alone


[Chorus]
E                   B
 All my friends say I should move on
C#m                       A
 She's just another girl
               B                         E
 Don't let her stick it to your heart so hard
                           B
 And all my friends say it wasn't meant to be
C#m                          A
 And it's a great big world
       B            E
 She's just another girl
 B          C#m    A  B
   (another girl)


[Verse 2]
  E
I went to see a fortuneteller, that was a trip
B
Maybe this confusion's got me losing my grip
  C#m                                                            A  B
I can't believe you're out there flying with someone else uh-huh
    E
Now Jason's getting married in the blink of an eye
  B
I got an invitation but I didn't reply
C#m                                                   A
Tell your little brother that we put down the gloves
             B
And give him all of my love


[Chorus]
E                   B
 All my friends say I should move on
C#m                       A
 She's just another girl
               B                         E
 Don't let her stick it to your heart so hard
                           B
 And all my friends say it wasn't meant to be
C#m                          A
 And it's a great big world
       B            C#m
 She's just another girl


[Bridge]
C#m          B                             Aadd9
 I could be reeling them in left and right
                          B            C#m
 Something's got a hold on me, tonight
            B                                 Aadd9
 Well maybe all of my friends should confront
                 B
 The fact that I don't want another girl

E B C#m

C#m                     A               B
 All of my friends say I should move on
E
 All of my friends say
B
 All of my friends say
C#m                     A
 All of my friends say
       B            E
 She's just another girl

E
 Then why can't I sleep at night
B
 And why don't the moon look right
C#m                            A
 The sound's off but the TV's on
                            B
 And it's a great big world


[Outro]
                   A
She's just another girl,
                                         B
Don't let her stick it to your heart boys
                   A
She's just another girl
                  B                   E     B
All my friends say she's just another girl
        C#m   A B E
Another girl




Song 16: The Way It Was
No Capo

[Intro]

E - C#m - G#m - A - B (x2)


[Verse 1]

E                      C#m        G#m   A B
  I drove through the desert last night
E                C#m                G#m   A B
  I carried the weight of our last fight
 E                      C#m                 G#m
Elvis singing "Don't be Cruel" and I wonder if you feel it too
      A                B
It's like we're going under.
C#m                       F#m                     G#m
   Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda County line,
                    A                 B
The question of my heart came to my mind:


[Chorus]

        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E       B             A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about those golden nights?


[Verse 2]

E             C#m              G#m   A B
  Maybe if thieves stole your heart
E             C#m           G#m
  Or maybe we just drifted apart.
     A       B
I remember driving
E               C#m                   G#m
  In my daddy's car to the airfield, blanket on the hood,
 A                 B
Backs against the windshield.
C#m                          F#m                           G#m
   Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust.
                   A            B
That paradise is buried in the dust.


[Chorus]

        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E       B             A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
(The way it was, it was)


[Bridge]

F#m                               C#m
   All of our plans are falling through.
F#m                                  B A
   Sometimes a dream, it don't come true.


[Instrumental]

A - E - B (x2)


[Verse 3]

    A     E
Darling, Darling
                    A
(If we go on can it be)
       A   E      B               A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about them golden nights?


[Chorus]

        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E      B
Can it be the way it was?
             A                E
My heart is true, girl, it's just you
             B
I'm thinking of
       A              E
Can it be the way it was?


[Outro]

C#m - G#m - A - B

E         C#m              G#m  A  B
 (Maybe thieves stole your heart.)

E - C#m - G#m - A - B (x2)

Song 18: Be Still
Capo 3


[Intro]
C    Em    F    C


C
  Be still
                Em
  And go on to bed
            F               C
  Nobody knows what lies ahead
C
  And life is short
                Em
  To say the least
                F              C
  We're in the belly of the beast

        Am
  Be still
              F
  Wild and young
C                            G
  Long may your innocence reign
                       Am
  Like shells on the shore
                             F
  And may your limits be unknown
                                C
  And may your efforts be your own
                              G
  If you ever feel you can't take it anymore


Am                F
  Don't break character
                C      G
  You've got a lot of heart
Am                         Dm
  Is this real or just a dream?
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done


C
  Be still
                    Em
  One day you'll leave
   F                       C
  Fearlessness on your sleeve
C                                             Em
  When you've come back tell me what did you see
                  F                  C
  Was there something out there for me?

       Am
  Be still
               F
  Close your eyes
C                                G
  Soon enough you'll be on your own
                  Am
  Steady and straight
                                    F
  And if they drag you through the mud
                                     C
  It doesn't change what's in your blood

  Over chains
G
  When they knock you down


Am                F
  Don't break character
                C      G
  You've got a lot of heart
Am                         Dm
  Is this real or just a dream?
C       Em
   Be still
F       C
   Be still
C       Em
   Be still
F       C
   Be still


Am                 F
  Over rock and chain
                C
  Over sunset plain
                  G
  Over trap and snare
                      Am
  When you're in too deep
                     F
  In your wildest dream
                     C
  In your made up scheme
                       G
  When they knock you down
                       Am
  When they knock you down


Am                F
  Don't break character
                C      G
  You've got a lot of heart
Am                         Dm
  Is this real or just a dream?
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done
   F             G  Am
  Rise up like the sun
   F          G   Am   G   F
  Labor till the work is done
