G                         D
She sits at home with the lights out,
Em                        C
seeing life in different colors.
G                       D
I think it's time now we wake up,
Em                   C
so let me take you away


       Em                                   
we can run down the streets, 
       C
with stars in our eyes.
G
Tear down this town, 
         D
in the dark of the night.
      Em
Just open the door,
           C
we've got time on our side.
       D
We can make it out alive.

Chorus:
G            D
Hey! We're taking on the world.
Em              C
I'll take you where you wanna go.
G                    D
Pick you up if you fall to pieces,
Em             C
let me be the one to save you.
G             D
Brake the plans we had before.
Em        C
Let's be unpredictable.
G                   D
Pick you up if you fall to pieces,
Em            C
let me be the one to save you.


G                      D
It took so long to convince you,
Em                       C
I know I had to show my colors.
G                         D
You never wanted to be rescued,
Em                        C
but now we're drifting away.


       Em                                   
we can run down the streets, 
       C
with stars in our eyes.
G
Tear down this town, 
         D
in the dark of the night.
      Em
Just open the door,
           C
we've got time on our side.
       D
We can make it out alive.

Chorus:
G            D
Hey! We're taking on the world.
Em              C
I'll take you where you wanna go.
G                    D
Pick you up if you fall to pieces,
Em             C
let me be the one to save you.
G             D
Brake the plans we had before.
Em        C
Let's be unpredictable.
G                   D
Pick you up if you fall to pieces,
Em            C
let me be the one to save you.

Interlude -2x-: G  D  Em  C

Em                 C
Earthquakes won't wait for another day.
G            D
Don't say, I know I never said it, I never said it, oh.
Em  C             G           D
One day, we can make it out alive!

Chorus:
G            D 
Hey! We're taking on the world.
Em              C 
I'll take you where you wanna go.
G                    D 
Pick you up if you fall to pieces,
Em             C 
let me be the one to save you.
G             D
Brake the plans we had before.
Em        C
Let's be unpredictable.
G                   D
Pick you up if you fall to pieces,
Em            C
let me be the one to save you.


    G                  D
So let go! 'Till we've lost control.
            Em
And we'll stumble through it all.
             C             D                     G 
Let's do something new and unpredictable.

    Love this song! Simple and easy to learn! Only took me a day. :)

    • What is the strumming pattern? I’m trying to figure it out myself but I am terrible at learning by ear.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
