Verse 1:                                                       

A  D (5x)

A
              A                    D
I've got a cupboard with cans of food, 
           A                     D
filtered water, And pictures of you 
         A                    D
and i'm not coming out until this is all over

A  D

         A                    D                       
And i'm looking through the glass 
           A                   D
where the light bends at the cracks
             A                       D                  
And i'm screaming at the top of my lungs pretending
      A                D                                       
The echoes belong 


Pre Chorus:
        Bm       D
to someone 
                                                   
Someone i used to know

A  D


Chorus:
         Bm       E
And we become 

silhouettes when our bodies finally go

A  D  (5x)

A


Verse 2:
             A                      D
I wanted to walk through the empty streets
                     A                D
And feel something constant under my feet,
            A                      D                A     D
But all the news reports recommended that I stay indoors
            A                 D
Because the air outside will make 
            A                    D
our cells divide at an alarming rate 
            A                         D
until our shells simply cannot hold all our insides in,
            A                   D
And that's when, (that's when), that's when


Pre Chorus:
           Bm        D
we'll explode

and it won't be a pretty sight

A  D  


Chrorus:
           Bm        E
And we'll become 

silhouettes when our bodies finally go


A  D  (10x) (la la la la la)

Bm  E


Enjoy!

absolutely wonderful. i love this song. only thing i would add would be a stop of the guitar during the last lines of the choruses, when you sing "and it wont be a pretty sight," or "silhouettes when our bodies finally go" then resuming the guitar at A.

I think when you are adding to the D chord you add 000332. At least it sounds better to me that way

I want to post or [tab]
