[Intro]
C  |  G  |  Em  |  D
C  |  G  |  Em  |  D
[Verse I]
C           G           Em   D
I was left to my own devi------ces
 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 that we lo------ve
        C                   G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                         Em     D
Bringing darkness from abo-------ve

[Chorus]
(Pause)                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 feel like
 Em                 D
You've been here before?
          C             G             D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this? (2x)

[Verse II]
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 that we lo------ve
        C                   G
Great clouds roll over the hills
                         Em     D
Bringing darkness from abo-------ve

[Chorus]
(Pause)                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 feel like
 Em                 D
You've been here before?
          C             G             D
How am I gonna be an optimist about this? (2x)

C  |  G  |  Em  |  D

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 that we lo------ve
        C                   G

Nothing changed at all
