-riff-
even when the sky is falling down
even when the earth is crumbling around my feet
even when we try to say goodbye
you can cut the tension with a knife in here


     Gbm                Dmaj7
cause I know what will happen
E
  if we get through this

Chorus:
A                           D
   and if the earth ends up crumbling down to its knees baby
Gbm                       E                     D    
   we just gotta get out, we just gotta get out
A                                D
   and if the skyscrapers tumble down and crash around then baby
Gbm                       E                     D    
   we just gotta get out, we just gotta get out

-riff-

I feel so damn lost

and it comes with a cost
   Dmaj7
of being alone
D             A                  Gbm         E
everything is falling down we're suffering hopeless thought
      D         A                  Gbm          E
and out we sing prayers go to the sky

Chorus:
A                           D
   and if the earth ends up crumbling down to its knees baby
Gbm                       E                     D    
   we just gotta get out, we just gotta get out
A                                D
   and if the skyscrapers tumble down and crash around then baby
Gbm                       E                     D    
   we just gotta get out, we just gotta get out

Bridge:
E           D     
  and if we fall -it's not your fault-
E           D     
  shadow covering -our selfish foes-
E           D                    E        D    
  and as our love -go out of the high note-

-riff-

even when the sky is falling down
even when the earth is crumbling around my feet

Dmaj7
around my feet

Chorus:
A                           D
   and if the earth ends up crumbling down to its knees baby
Gbm                       E                     D    
   we just gotta get out, we just gotta get out
A                                D
   and if the skyscrapers tumble down and crash around then baby
Gbm                       E                     D    
   we just gotta get out, we just gotta get out


D              E            Gbm                A
   and if the earth ends up crumbling down to its knees then baby
D                        E                    A
   we just gotta get out, we just gotta get out

    Would deffo suggest playing -2, sounds way better and is super easy

  2. i agree with @hemmo1999 for the riff

  3. I normally play the riff like this

    —–0——0——0——0——0——0——0——
    —0–0—0–0–0—0–0–0—0–0—0–0—0–0—–
    -2——2——4——4——1——1——2——2—
    ————————————————————

    Also sorry I’m really bad at writing tabs but yeah hope this helps

  4. I think better riff is

    —0—0—0—0—0—0—0—0—
    –0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-4-4-4-4–
    -2—2—4—4—1—1—4—4—–
    ———————————–
