Capo 2



C          G           Em D
I was left to my own devices
C         G              Em         D
Many days fell away with nothing to show


        C                   G    
And the walls kept tumbling down
                Em D
In the city we love
      C                    G          
Great clouds roll over the hills
                        Em D
Bringing darkness from above


                     C
But if you close your eyes,
        G          
Does it almost feel like
Em                 D
Nothing changed at all
                      C
And if you close your eyes,
        G
Does it almost feels like
Em                 D
You've been here before?
    C                G         D  
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
    C                G         D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?


C              G              Em         D
We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
C            G           Em       D
In your pose as the dust settled around us


        C                   G    
And the walls kept tumbling down
                Em D
In the city we love
      C                    G          
Great clouds roll over the hills
                        Em D
Bringing darkness from above


                     C
But if you close your eyes,
        G          
Does it almost feel like
Em                 D
Nothing changed at all
                      C
And if you close your eyes,
        G
Does it almost feels like
Em                 D

    C                G         D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?


C                 G    
Oh where do we begin?
    Em            D
The rubble or our sins?
C                G
Oh where do we begin?
    Em            D
The rubble or our sins?

 
        C                   G    
And the walls kept tumbling down
                Em D
In the city we love

Would be perfect if you would change the chords at the part where says "How am I gonna be an optimist about this" to [C]-[F#m]-[D] rather...
