Verse

[C]Me and Mr. [Bm]Dylan on the [Am]ride home

[Dm]We had a [C]heart-to-heart [G]about life
[Am]But neither him [C]or me [C]could decide [Am]for ourselves
[F]If we wanted to [G]outlive that night
[C]Like two children [Bm]on the playground of the [Am]unconfessed souls
[Dm]Abandoned by our [C]mothers and our [G]lovers and our foes
[Am]If only we were [C]brave enough to [C]live the lives [Am]we stole
[F]What a wonderful world [G]this could be!

Verse

So[C], how many mo[Bm]re examples [Am]until we break?
So [Dm]how many sac[C]rifices must [G]we make?

[Am]Because we've all been there [C]once before
[C]And it looks like we've [Am]returned once more
[F]So is this the beginning [G]or the end?
[C]The last two soldiers [Bm]on the battlefield
[Am]Survivors of the war
[Dm]They aim at one another [C]while their mothers [G]beg the lord
[Am]"If you're listening, [C]I'm missing him
[C]So somehow [Am]bring him home.
[F]How did it [G]come to this?"
[C]So the soldiers [Bm]lift their rifles
[Am]And they're aiming at the head
[Dm]They think of their first love [C]before they take their [G]final breath
[Am]And somewhere in the [C]distance [C]they hear s[Am]omething someone said:
[F]"How did it [G]come to this?"
