Na, 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, na   x2



C (Single Strum)                      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                                  G
This is me coming back to get you out to say goodbye, to make amends

C           G            Am
I'm not leaving this place

F          C            G
Unless I'm leaving with you

C               G             Am          Em
You're the only person with a half decent heart here

       F                      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


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      x2


C            G                      Am
And 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


           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
You were always meant for me and you will see

G             Am            F

                C       C/B  Am    F          G
That you're impossible.           Oh na, na, na, na, na, na

         C        C/B  Am    F          G
You're impossible.         Oh na, na, na, na, na, na

         C        C/B  Am    F          G
You're impossible.         Oh na, na, na, na, na, na

         C        C/B  Am    F         G
You're impossible.           Yeah-heeeeeah!


C          G            Am
So 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(Single Strum)          G
What a wonderful world this could be!


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     x2


C           G                      Am
And 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


           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
You were always meant for me and you will see



G             Am             F


                C       C/B  Am    F          G
That you're impossible.           Oh na, na, na, na, na, na

         C        C/B  Am    F          G
You're impossible.         Oh na, na, na, na, na, na

         C        C/B  Am    F          G
You're impossible.         Oh na, na, na, na, na, na

         C        C/B  Am    F         G
You're impossible.           Yeah-heeeeeah


    C(Single Strum)   G             Am
So, how many more examples until we break?

F              C            G
How many sacrifices must we make?

C                      G
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 ('Palm Muted')                 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(Single Strum)   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?"


F     E

F     E

F     E     x3

C (Single Strum)
Na, na, na, na, na, na

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

Am                                 F    G
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na                x2


C            G                      Am
And 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    G   C
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Just a small correction, I think the Em should be a G everywhere
