[Intro]: F G  Am

  F                 G                                              Am
Who's gonna save tonight, it is hard to not give in because you're no longer breathing
      F                 G          Am
And who's gonna save tonight if I don't
  F                 G                                         Am
Who's gonna save tonight, I am down on my knees but I'm too proud to say please
      F                 G            Am
And who's gonna save tonight if you won't

         G                     A                                                   Bm
All the roads we're travelling up and down, don't you want our hearts to sing, I know myself
       G                         A Bm
But I wonder where you came from, yeah yeah, oh oh
 G                    A                                        Bm
Following every step, up and down, running hot, still so far away
       G                         A      Bm
And I wonder where you came from, oh oh, yeah yeah

  F                  G                                      Am
Who's gonna save us now when our enemies calling, when I'm down and I'm falling
       F                  G         Am
Baby who's gonna save us now if we won't
       F                    G                                           Am
Oh, I don't want to hurt tonight, there is much good in me and there's much good in you
    F               G                 Am
So we gotta save tonight, cause they won't

         G                     A                                                   Bm
All the roads we're travelling up and down, don't you want our hearts to sing, I know myself
       G                         A Bm
But I wonder where you came from, yeah yeah, oh oh
 G                    A                                        Bm
Following every step, up and down, running hot, still so far away
       G                         A      Bm
And I wonder where you came from, oh oh, yeah yeah

A                  Bm      G
Why start a fire when it's all worth saving
                                       Bm       A
Don't you wanna know, don't you wanna feel me closer too
                      Bm        G
I walk through wires cause it's all worth breaking
                                           Bm       A
And don't you wanna know, don't you wanna feel me closer too

         G                     A                                          Bm
All the roads we're travelling up and down, I would carry anything that's all I know
           G                          A Bm
You gotta tell me where you came from, yeah yeah, oh oh
 G                    A                                      Bm
Following every turn, up and down, wanna learn everything tonight
                G                        A Bm
And I am gonna go to where you came from, yeah yeah, oh oh (oh, oh)

Cause I am gonna go to where you came from (oh, oh)

a bit funky so some chords might not be aligned perfectly with the lyrics
