    Intro: / C - - - / Am - - - / Em - - - / - - - - / x2

     

    C          Am           Em (2)

       We won't get far

    C      Am              Em (2) 

        Flying in circles inside a jar

    C                  Am              Em (2)

        ‘cause the air we breathe

    C      Am                  Em (2)       

      Is thinning with the words that we speak

     

                    F (2)             C (2)  

    That we speak, you and me

                    F (2)             C    Em   F (4)

    That we speak, you and me

     

    / C - - - / Am - - - / Em - - - / - - - -

     

    C             Am           Em (2)

        You're on the floor

    C     Am                Em (2)

        Fearful of what's outside your door

    C               Am              Em (2)

        But the codes and keys

    C                     Am                    Em (2)

        They can protect you from the pangs of jealousy

     

                                    F (2)               C (2)

    And when you scream, love you see

                F (2)             C                   Em

    Like a child, throwing stones at the sky

                         F (2)                                C (2)

    When they fall back to earth, as minor chords of major works

                    F (2)                              C              Em    F (8)

    Separate rooms of single life, we are one, we are alive

     

               C     Am     Em (2)

    We are alive

               C     Am    Em (2)

    We are alive

               C     Am    Em (2)

    We are alive

               C     Am    Em (hold)

    We are alive
