Verse One:
As [A]fireworks burst [E]over the [D]land,
I could've [B]sworn I felt the influence of an [A]unseen [B]hand -
[A]the ghost of [E]someone else's [D]dream,
a for[B]gotten god stopping by to [A]survey the [B]scene.
And the [A]lights were compli[E]cated and [D]so we all just
[B]prayed to the spirits ab[A]ove and be[B]low
that the [A]water would never [E]reach us in time[A],
but I had a [B]feeling that we'd never get to [A]2009[B]...
Chorus:
[A]Didn't want a wave but a [E]wave was [A]coming, yeah,
we [D]didn't want to swim but the [A]cities were [E]sinking
and though we [A]wanted to react we were too bu[E]sy sleeping [A]through
the [D]ground that was shaking and the [A]bass was [E]thumping.
There's a tidal [D]wave coming so you'd [A]better start learning to swim
(There's a [D]tidal wave coming so you'd better [A]start learning)
and [D]now's as good as any as a [A]time and place to [D]begin[E]...
Verse Two:
On [A]TV, they said the [E]storms wouldn't [D]last
but their [B]answers didn't correlate to the [A]questions we'd [B]asked.
They said [A]"A spark that's gone is not a [E]spark to [D]mourn,
you can't re[B]suscitate a person who was [A]never [B]born."
So I [A]climbed to the tallest [E]building in town[D]
to see the [B]rain rushing in, to feel my [A]heart breaking [B]down
and as the [A]blue sheen drew nearer I saw a [E]window to an[D]other world,
[B]strange fish I'd never seen, and [A]in that moment I [B]realized:
[A]Didn't want a wave but a [E]wave was [A]coming
we [D]didn't want to swim but the [A]cities were [E]sinking
and though we [A]wanted to react we were [E]too busy [A]sleeping through
the [D]ground that was shaking and the [A]bass was [E]thumping.
There's a [D]tidal wave coming so you'd [A]better start learning to swim
(There's a [D]tidal wave coming so you'd [A]better start learning)
and now's as [D]good as any as a [A]time and place to begin...
Bridge:
[A]I should have known this was coming, yeah,
it [D]could not have been more [B]obvious.
[A]Like the flood that Noah dreamed about
except [D]bigger and more [B]ominous.
[A]I should have seen this unfolding, yeah,
it [D]could not have been more [B]obvious.
[A]Like the flood that Noah dreamed about
except [D]bigger and more [B]ominous.

OR you could just play A D B the same way you did during the bridge
Verse Three:
[A]Every moment lost someone [E]else has [D]won,
[B]every time you breathe there's [A]another [B]gone.
[A]Every passing second is a [E]minute [D]late,
[B]every breath can escalate a [A]hurri[B]cane.
And [A]do you think we'd realize just [E]what we'd [D]done -
[B]tore down the canvas that [A]held up the [B]sun?
We [A]ripped down the canvas hung [E]up ab[D]ove,
but what if [B]we were created to gaze, what if we were created to gaze at the
stars up above?
[A]Didn't want a wave but a [E]wave was [D]coming, yeah,
we [B]didn't want to swim but the [A]cities were [B]sinking
and though we [A]wanted to react we were [E]too busy [D]sleeping through
the [B]ground that was shaking and the [A]bass was [B]thumping.
