21 Guns

Intro: Dm – A# – F – C (x2)

Verse:
Dm A# F C
Do you know what’s worth fighting for,
Dm A# F C
When it’s not worth dying for?
Dm A# F C
Does it take your breath away
A# C
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Dm A# F C
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
Dm A# F C
And you look for a place to hide?
Dm A# F C
Did someone break your heart inside?
A# C5
You’re in ruins

Chorus:
F5 C5* D5
One, 21 guns
C5 A#5
Lay down your arms
F5 C5
Give up the fight
F5 C5* D5
One, 21 guns
C5 A#5 F5 C5
Throw up your arms into the sky,
A#5 F5 C5
You and I

Verse:
Dm A# F C
When you’re at the end of the road
Dm A# F C
And you lost all sense of control
Dm A# F C
And your thoughts have taken their toll
A# C
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Dm A# F C
Your faith walks on broken glass
Dm A# F C
And the hangover doesn’t pass
Dm A# F C
Nothing’s ever built to last
A# C5
You’re in ruins.

Chorus:
F5 C5* D5
One, 21 guns

Throw up your arms into the sky,
A#5 F5 C5
You and I

Bridge:
Dm A# F C
Did you try to live on your own
Dm A# F A
When you burned down the house and home?
Dm A# F A
Did you stand too close to the fire?
A#m C
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

Sins in Hell, as far as I can tell, at least the ones I got away with

———————–
C#                       C                       A#                   G#
I read the graffiti in the bathroom stall like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall
F#                         G#
And so it seemed to confess
C#                              C                  A#                         G#
It didn’t say much, but it only confirmed that the center of the earth is the end of the world
