Verse:
E        E              Dbm     
  Broken bottles in the hotel lobby
A          E                Ab7              Dbm      B   A
  Seems to me like I'm just scared of never feeling it again
    E        Ab7         Dbm       B      A
I know it's crazy to believe in silly things
                B
It's not that easy

Verse:
E              E                   Dbm     
  I remember it now, it takes me back to when it all first started
A             E            Ab7                Dbm   B       A
  But I only got myself to blame for it, and I accept that now
      E      Ab7            Dbm      B      A
It's time to let it go, go out and start again
                   B
But it's not that easy

Chorus:

But I've got        
A      E          E                 Dbm      B   
 high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
A      E              Ab7              Dbm      B 
 High hopes, when you   let it go, go out and start again
A     E      Ab7        Dbm       B       A
 High hopes,   when it all comes to an end
                     B          -E-
But the world keeps spinning around

Interlude:
    E   Dbm 
    A   E    Ab7    Dbm  B 
    A   B

Verse:
E           E                   Dbm     
  And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of all the people who've come and gone
A         E                   Ab7                   Dbm        B       A
  Memories, they seem to show up so quick but they leave you far too soon
    E             Ab7             Dbm     B      A
Naive, I was just staring at the barrel of the gun
            B
And I do believe that

Chorus:

But I've got        
A      E          E                 Dbm      B   
 high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
A      E              Ab7              Dbm      B 
 High hopes, when you   let it go, go out and start again
A    E       Ab7        Dbm       B       A
 High hopes,  oh when it all comes to an end
                     B      
And the world keeps spinning 
A                      B           -E- 
  yeah the world keeps spinning around

Interlude:
    E   Dbm 
    A   E    Ab7    Dbm  B 
    A   B

Chorus:
A      E          E                 Dbm      B   
 High hopes, it takes me back to when we started
A      E              Ab7              Dbm      B 
 High hopes, when you   let it go, go out and start again
A      E           Ab7    Dbm  B 
 High hopes, ooohhh
A                      B
  And the world keeps spinning
A                       B
  Yeah this world keeps spinning

A   B

A                      B         E
  How this world keeps  spinning around

  1. i recommend -4

  2. I’d play an E then an Emaj7 instead of two E:s in a row in the verse. Super easy and it sounds more like the record!

  3. -4 is easier than +3

  4. Ukandance

    +3 is easier

  5. sethhudson19

    Chords for the verses should be E Abm Dbm Dbm A E Ab7 Dbm B A B, it sounds better.

  6. sethhudson19

    It’s “Oh when it all GOES to an end,” not “COMES.”

  7. Great chords really helpful but for the chorus first line,instead of A E E, try using A E B. :)

  8. Have been waiting for this tab for so long!! just tried it myself – fabulous!!! thanks well done :)
