      C  Em  C  Em  D 

Verse 1:

Em C G D/F# Once, I had an empire in a golden age Em C G D/F# I was held up so high, I used to be great Em C G D/F# They used to cheer when they saw my face Em C G D/F# Now, I fear I have fallen from grace
Em C G D And I feel like my castle's crumbling down Em C G D And I watch all my bridges burn to the ground Em C G D Em C D And you don't want to know me, I will just let you down You don't wanna know me now
( Em C G D ) ( Em C G D )

Verse 2:

Em C G D/F# Once, I was the great hope for a dynasty Em C G D/F# Crowds would hang on my words and they trusted me Em C G D/F# Their faith was strong, but I pushed it too far Em C G D/F# I held that grudge 'til it tore me apart

Pre-Chorus

Em C G D Power went to my head and I couldn't stop Em C G D Ones I loved tried to help, so I ran them off Em C G D And here I sit alone behind walls of regret Em C G D Falling down like promises that I never kept
Em C G D And I feel like my castle's crumbling down Em C G D And I watch all my bridges burn to the ground Em C G D Em C D And you don't want to know me, I will just let you down You don't wanna know me now

Bridge:

C Em Ooh, ooh C Em Ooh, ooh C Em Ooh (Ah, ah) C Em Ooh (Ah, ah)

Verse 3:

C C C My foes and friends watch my reign end D I don't know how it could've ended this way C Smoke billows from my ships in the harbor C People look at me like I'm a monster D4 Now they're screaming at the palace front gates D Used to chant my name Now they're screaming that they hate me Never wanted you to hate me
G D My castle's crumbling down Em C G D And I watch all my bridges burn to the ground Em C G D Em C G And you don't want to know me, I will just let you down D Em C G My castle's crumbling down D Em C G D You don't wanna know me now
Final Em C G D Em C G D Em C G D Em C G D Em C G D
