Intro: C G Am F

Verse 1:
C                                            G
I'm waking up at the start of the end of the world,
                                                Am
But its feeling just like every other morning before,
                                                   F
Now I wonder what my life is going to mean if it's gone,

C                                                  G
The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour and I
                                                    Am
Started staring at the passengers who're waving goodbye
                                              F
Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?


Chorus:
Am                                        F
But I believe the world is burning to the ground
F
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out

C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come

Am                                       F
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
F
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,

C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come


Verse 2:
C                                                G
I think it turned ten o'clock but I don't really know
                                            Am
Then I can't remember caring for an hour or so
                                     F
Started crying and I couldn't stop myself

I started running but there's no where to run to

C                                             G
I sat down on the street and took a look at myself
                                                          Am
Said where you going man you know the world is headed for hell

Say your goodbyes if you got someone you can
F
Say goodbye to


Chorus:
Am                                        F
But I believe the world is burning to the ground
F
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out

C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come

Am                                       F
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
F
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,

C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come


Bridge:
Am
Gone, gone baby, it's all gone
There's no one in the corner
And there's nobody home
Well it was cool, cool
It was just all cool
Now it's over for me
And it's over for you
G


Chorus:
Am                                        F
But I believe the world is burning to the ground
F
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out

C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come

Am                                       F
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
F
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,

C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come
C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come
Am
Let's see how far we've come
F
Let's see how far we've come
C
Let's see how far we've come
G
Let's see how far we've come
Am
Let's see how far we've come
F
Let's see how far we've come
