Intro: A E (x2) 

   A                                                
     I hear something in the sounds that surround me 
  Bm             E 
     That only seems to remind me, 
       Bm               E       D9            A               E 
     That I'm lost and longing for a different place and time 
   A 
     I want to be walking down the avenue, 
  Bm                  E 
     Tall buildings staring down on me and you 
  Bm            E         D9           A                  D9 
     But all I have is pictures running through my mind 

      E       Bm 
     Sunlight dying 
      D                   A          D9   
     People rushing madly all around 
      E       Bm 
     Sirens crying 
      D                         E        E9/D     C#m7   
     Gotta grab the next thing back to our town, 
  E9/D            E           E9/D          C#m7 E9/D 
     Before the whole thing crumbles to the ground 

A E  

   A  
     Do you remember the promise I gave you, 
  Bm             E 
     The one I swore I would hold to? 
   Bm 
     Well you're there, 
          E        D9          A               E 
     I'm here, and everything I said was wrong 
   A 
     So we're not out with the crowd nights, 
   Bm            E 
     Not walking under the bright lights 
   Bm           E      D9           A               D9 
     All I can do is dream about it, all night long 

      E       Bm    
     Sunlight dying 
      D                   A          D9 
     People rushing madly all around 
      E       Bm 
     Sirens crying 
      D                         E        E9/D    C#m7 
     Gotta grab the next thing back to our town, 
  E9/D            E           E9/D          C#m7 E9/D 
     Before the whole thing crumbles to the ground 
    
    E          E9/D          C#m7     E9/D         E 
     It's the place where we keep our hopes and dreams, 
         E9/D          C#m7     E9/D       E 
     The place where I lost my heart it seems 
               E9/D         C#m7       E9/D 
     All people looking for danger and romance 
   E         E9/D            C#m7           E9/D 
     Drop by there while you still have the chance, 
              E            E9/D        C#m7 E9/D 
     'cause it's all gonna tumble down. 
              E       E9/D          C#m7 E9/D      A      E 
     It's gonna shake apart, and crumble to the ground 

   A 
     Do you remember the promise I gave you, 
   Bm            E 
     The one I swore I would hold to? 
   Bm 
     Well you're there, 
          E        D9          A               E 
     I'm here, and everything I said was wrong 
   A 
     So we're not out with the crowd nights, 
   Bm            E 
     Not walking under the bright lights 
   Bm           E      D9           A               D9 
     All I can do is dream about it, all night long 

E       Bm    
     Sunlight dying 
      D                   A          D9 
     People rushing madly all around 
      E       Bm 
     Sirens crying 
      D                         E        E9/D    C#m7 
     Gotta grab the next thing back to our town, 
  E9/D            E           E9/D          C#m7 E9/D   D 
     Before the whole thing crumbles to the ground,    yeah 


E       Bm    
     Sunlight dying 
      D                   A          D9 
     People rushing madly all around 
      E       Bm 
     Sirens crying 
      D                         E        E9/D    C#m7 
     Gotta grab the next thing back to our town, 
  E9/D            E           E9/D          C#m7 E9/D   D 
     Before the whole thing crumbles to the ground,    yeah
