[Verse 1]
     G        D      F#m       G
It's like I'm always searching for
          F#m              G
Something good left in the past
              D        F#m      G
It's not like you were perfect, but
           F#m     D      G
You almost gave me what I had
      Bm        D      G
When skies were always blue
          D       F#m   G
And I had nothing on my back
           Bm       D            G
I had everything to look forward to
                 F#m Bm   G
And I just wanna get that back
[Chorus]
              D
You get built up, you get let down
                G
You give things up to stay above ground
            Bm
You fall in love, then fall back out
          G
Fall back out

[Verse 2]
    G      D        F#m    G
And that's just the way it goes
            F#m    D       G
So I'll try not to linger, babe
          D         F#m      G
Enjoy the highs and take the lows
           F#m      D          G
You got to learn to let things change

[Chorus]
              D
You get built up, you get let down
                G
You give things up to stay above ground
            Bm
You fall in love, then fall back out
          G
Fall back out
[Bridge]
 A                    D
And, God, I know that I'll be right
                              Bm
There must be something in my dream tonight
                       G
Do you remember how it felt
                 A
Before I cut you down?
                    D
Oh, God, I'm such a drama queen
                             Bm
I think I've got a knack for tragedy
                                G
But not all good things have to last
                            A
You can't get stuck on the past

[Chorus]
              D
You get built up, you get let down
                G
You give things up to stay above ground
            D                    Bm
You fall in love, then fall back out
          G A
Fall back out

[Coda]
           D
So turn it up, don't turn it down
        G
Let yourself get let down
       Bm
Let it in, let it out
       G
Let it in
A   D
Ooh...
        Bm
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
        G
Ooh ooh ooh
        A
Ooh ooh ooh

[Outro]
     Bm              D         G
It's like I'm always searching for
          D         F#m    G
Something good left in the past
