Intro: Em Am 

Em
Some legends are told
             G
Some turn to dust or to gold
               C
but you will remember me
   Am           D
remember me for centuries
   Em
if just one mistake
   G
is all it will take
                 C
we’ll go down in history
   Am           D
remember me for centuries

Interlude: Em G C

  Am            D
remember me for centuries

Verse:
Em
mummified my teenage dreams
G
no it's nothing wrong with me
C
the kids are all wrong, the story's all off
Am                  D  -Em-
heavy metal broke my  -heart-
Em
come on come on and let me in
G
bruises on your thighs like my fingerprints
C
this is supposed to match, the darkness that you felt
Am                       D
I never meant for you to fix yourself

Interlude: Em Am 

Chorus:
Em
Some legends are told
             G
Some turn to dust or to gold
               C
but you will remember me
   Am           D
remember me for centuries
   Em
if just one mistake
   G
is all it will take
                 C
we’ll go down in history
   Am           D
remember me for centuries

Verse:
Em
I can't stop until the whole world knows my name
G
'cause I was only born inside my dreams
C
until you die for me, as long as theres a light
Am                         D           Em              -Am-
my shadows over you 'cause I-I- am the opposite of amnesia
Em                           G
and you're a cherry blossom, you're about to bloom
C                             Am
you look so pretty but you're gone so soon

Interlude: Em Am

Chorus:
Em
Some legends are told
             G
Some turn to dust or to gold
               C
but you will remember me
   Am           D
remember me for centuries
   Em
if just one mistake
   G
is all it will take
                 C
we’ll go down in history
   Am           D
remember me for centuries

Bridge:
Em              G
we've been here forever
    C                 Am   -D-
and here's the frozen proof
Em             G
I could scream forever
   C                Am    -D-
we are the poisoned youth

Interlude -x2-: Em Am

Chorus:
Em
Some legends are told
             G
Some turn to dust or to gold
               C
but you will remember me
   Am           D
remember me for centuries
   Em
if just one mistake
   G
is all it will take
                 C
we’ll go down in history
   Am           D
remember me for centuries

    Also does anyone know how to do the YEAH YEAH YEAH bit or just guess at it cos I have no clue..

    • BKValueMeal

      I thnk the, “YEAH YEAH YEAH” part is the interlude in some areas (Sometimes it’s different noises) but since they come up after verses and before the chorus where it usually is in the song that’s what it leads me to believe. {I don’t actually know so I could be wrong}

  10. Heavy metal broke my *smashes uke against wall twice* HEART
