End of The Empire I III Chord Arcade Fire

Capo 0 with

INTRO
One last dance
Here at the end of the empire
Makes me cry
Watching the moon on the ocean

CHORUS
Where California used to be, it’s not half bad
Oh, spend half your life being sad
Woah, well, don’t be scared
Oh-oh, just chronically impaired
Oh-oh, just take my hand, oh-oh
Standing at the end of the American Empire

VERSE
One last song
Here at the end of the movie
They seemed so sure
At lеast that’s the way I remembеr the war

CHORUS
When New York used to be, it’s not half bad
Oh-oh, spending half your life being sad
Woah, don’t you weep
Oh-oh, half your life fast asleep
Oh-oh, feeling uninspired
Oh, standing at the end of the American Empire

POST-CHORUS
And we know that it’s time to go
Heard the news on the radio
One last round before we go
Through the pale atmospheric glow
And the oxygen’s getting low
Sing a song that we used to know
One last round before we go
One last round before we go

SOLO

VERSE
Didn’t use to get high didn’t use to drink and I
Didn’t use to think I could ever dream about losing you
Didn’t use to get low this time of night and I
Didn’t use to walk home in the morning light
Without you, without you
Didn’t use to get high, didn’t use to drink
Didn’t use to think I could ever dream
About losing you, you, but I do

CHORUS
It’s you and I, it’s do or die
Suicide mission, baby by my side
We got one life and half of it’s gone
You know I can’t sleep with the television on

OUTRO
Didn’t use to get high
With you by my side
(Leave the light on)
