[Verse 1]
Bm7
..Down the road
             D 
Where the kids don’t play alone
Em                 G
...Or in your home....
Bm7
....There’s a fog
        D
It’s a shadow, a smoking gun
Em                    G 
...That something is wrong

[Instrumental]
D   Em   A
................
    D   Em   G
Ah!............

[Chorus]
              D
Hysterical us...
            Bm7 
Sucking in oxygen
               C            C7
How did we learn to breathe?....
              D
Are we alone?......
              Bm7
Are we in love again?
                C         C7
What do you want from me?...
              D
Hysterical us......
                   Bm7
Checking the locks again
              C              C7
Remember when we could sleep?...
              D
Are we alone?.....
              Bm7
Are we in love again?
                C        C7
What do you want from me?...

[Verse 2]
Bm7
....Play it cool
          D
Play the man who won’t play the fool
Em                        G
.....But they’re playing you
Bm7
....‘Til in the sky
          D
Thirty-eight green blinding lights
Em                           G
...Are here to take you home....

[Instrumental]
D   Em   A
................
    D   Em   G
Ah!............

[Chorus]
              D
Hysterical us...
            Bm7 
Sucking in oxygen
               C             C7
How did we learn to breathe?....
              D
Are we alone?......
              Bm7
Are we in love again?
                C         C7
What do you want from me?...
              D
Hysterical us......
                   Bm7
Checking the locks again
              C              C7
Remember when we could sleep?..
              D
Are we alone?.....
              Bm7
Are we in love again?
                C        C7
What do you want from me?...

[Bridge]
D   Bm7    C
.............
       D        Bm7
You say I’m a winner
     C                       G
A fanfare rising in the breeze
                D
I’d give it away....
        Bm7        G
For a reason to be.....
       D           Bm7
You say,  I’m a quitter
             G
Well it’s all I ever want to be
                  D         Bm7 
I’ll throw it away for a glimmer
     G
Of something I could try to believe

[Chorus]
              D
Hysterical us...
            Bm7 
Sucking in oxygen
               C    C7
How did we learn to breathe?
              D
Are we alone?......
              Bm7
Are we in love again?
                C         C7
What do you want from me?...
              D
Hysterical us......
                   Bm7
Checking the locks again
              C              C7
Remember when we could sleep?..
              D
Are we alone?.....
              Bm7
Are we in love again?
                C        C7
What do you want from me?...

[Outro]
             D
Hysterical us (I can’t seem to shake it)
             Bm7
Sucking in oxygen (The feeling that I’m breaking)
                C           C7
How did we learn to breathe? (Just give me something I could believe)
              D
Are we alone? (Are we alone? I can’t seem to shake it)
              Bm7
Are we in love again? (The feeling that I’m breaking)
                C        C7
What do you want from me? (Just give me something I could believe)
D       Bm7     A      G
