Verse - I like to arpegiate these chords like Tom does live, it sounds really good

[C]Why do you cry [G]when you know how[Am] the story ends?

[F]How can you laugh[C] when you know that[G] it hurts your friends?
[C]We've all been there on[G]ce, but you never l[Am]eft
[F]This is me coming [C]back to get you out [G]to say goodbye, to make amends
[C]I'm not l[G]eaving this [Am]place    [Em]
[F]    Unless I'm leaving with y[G]ou
[C]Cause you're the[G] only person with a[Am] half decent heart here
And I k[F]now you will p[C]ut it to u[G]se
Until it's [C]gone, [G]gone, g[Am]one
[F]Gone, g[C]one, g[G]one
[C]Gone, g[G]one, g[Am]one, g[Em]one, g[F]one, y[G]eah

Verse

[C]Me and Mr. D[G]ylan on the [Am]ride home

[F]We had a[C] heart-to-heart[G] about life
[C]But neither him or [G]me could de[Am]cide for o[Em]urselves
[F]If we wanted to [G]outlive that night
[C]Like two children on the [G]playground of the u[Am]nconfessed souls
[F]Abandoned by our [C]mothers and our [G]lovers and our foes
[C]If only we were b[G]rave enough to l[Am]ive the lives we[Em] stole
[F]What a wonderful world [G]this could be!

Verse

So[C], how many mo[G]re examples[Am] until we break?

So [F]how many sa[C]crifices must[G] we make?
[C]Because we've all been there [G]once before
[Am]And it looks like we've r[Em]eturned once more
[F]So is this the beginning [G]or the end?
[C]The last two soldiers [G]on the battlefield
[Am]Survivors of the war
[F]They aim at one another [C]while their mothers [G]beg the lord
"If you're l[C]istening, I'm [G]missing him
So s[Am]omehow bring him [Em]home.
[F]How did it come to t[G]his?"
[C]So the soldiers lift their ri[G]fles
[Am]And they're aiming at the head
[F]They think of their first lo[C]ve before they t[G]ake their final breath
[C]And somewhere in the d[G]istance they hear s[Am]omething someone s[Em]aid:
[F]"How did it come to t[G]his?"
