Intro: E B Gb Abm

Verse:
E    B     Gb                       Abm
Afterlife, oh my God, what an awful word
E             B                           Gb               Abm
After all the breath and the dirt and the fires are burnt
E                  B     Gb                           Abm
And after all this time, and after all the ambulances go
E                  B                                    Gb
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
        Abm
Of the afterglow


Abm
I've gotta know…

Chorus:
Gb             E
Can we work it out?
                 Abm                    B      Gb
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
                     E
Can we just work it out?
            Abm                      B
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?
                   E                    Abm
'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out
                 Gb                      E
'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out

Verse -same chords as first-:
Afterlife, I think I saw what happens next
Oh it was just a glimpse of you, like looking through a window
Or a shallow sea
Could you see me?
And after all this time
It's like nothing else we used to know
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
Of the afterglow
I've gotta know…

Chorus:
Gb              E
Can we work it out?
                  Abm                    B
Let's scream and shout 'till we work it out
Gb                    E
Can we just work it out?
            Abm                      B
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?

Bridge:

Gb  E
Oh
               Abm
When love is gone
               B
Where does it go?

And you say
Gb  E
Oh
              Abm
When love is gone

And where do we go?
             Abm
Where do we go?
             Gb
Where do we go?
             E
Where do we go?

Verse -same as first-:
And after this
Can it last another night?
After all the bad advice
Had nothing at all to do with life
I've gotta know

Chorus:
Gb              E
Can we work it out?
                  Abm                    B
Let's scream and shout 'till we work it out
Gb                    E
Can we just work it out?
            Abm                      B
Scream and shout 'till we work it out?

Bridge:

But you say
Gb  E
Oh
               Abm
When love is gone
               B
Where does it go?

And you say
Gb  E
Oh
              Abm
When love is gone
               B
Where does it go?
Gb  E
Oh
              Abm
When love is gone
              B
Where did it go?
Gb  E
Oh
              Abm
When love is gone
              B
Where did it go?
                 Gb   E
And where do we go?

Outro -repeat-: Abm  B  Gb  E

B 
It's just an afterlife
It's just an afterlife
It's just an afterlife with you
It's just an afterlife
