We Could Be Kings

	  		

VERSE 
   B 
So this is rejection  
         G#m 
 And it's bringing you down  
    E 
 He told you that he'd find work soon  
                            F# 
 Then he stopped coming around  
   B 
 That was the summer of sweet nights  
                        G#m 
 He used to take you for rides  
                         E 
 But it all changed in the backseat  
    F# 
 He came inside  

PREChorus 
           G#m  F#      E          
 Well he's seen enough to know  
    B      G#m  F#             E                 B 
 He's old enough to know what's right from wrong 
   G#m         F#    E     B        F# 
 I know how hard it is to see things through  

Chorus 

B               E 
 Oh no did it rip you apart?  
             G#m 
 To be told we could be kings  
                E                  F# 
 When we were damned from the start  
B              E 
 Oh no did it rip you apart?  
              G#m          F# 
 They told us we could be kings  
                E          F#                 B 
 When we were damned, damned from the start  

VERSE 
 You told him you loved him  
 But pushing come to show  
 There were no easy answers  
 Mixing money and blood  
 He was too young to know better  
 And you were unemployed  
 The sergeant promised a cake walk  
 But then he got deployed  
PREChorus 
 I've seen enough, enough to know  
 It's not about which side you're on  
 I know how hard it is to keep it in  
Chorus 
 Oh no did it rip you apart?  
 To be told we could be kings  
 When we were damned from the start  
 I know that it rips you apart  
 They told us we could be kings  
 When we were damned, damned from the start  

BRIDGE 
B                         E 
 We've been living to the left of the dial  
        G#m                             E 
 Hoping drinks and denial will keep us here  
B                       E 
 I'm not promising you some bright side  
                G#m 
 We're trying to break your stride  
                   E 
 But you asked me, you asked me  

                   B 
 He was gone in an instant  
                        G#m 
 They say nobody was spared  
                        E 
 Not gonna tell you he loved you  
                        F# 
 Not gonna tell you he cared  

PREChorus 
 Well I've seen enough, enough to know  
 Sometimes with the truth you gotta let it go  
 I know how hard it is to keep it in  
Chorus 
 I won't going rip you apart  
 And tell you, you could be king  
 I don't wanna break your heart  
 I won't going rip you apart  
 So open wide and you'll sing  
E 
 Cause we're all damned  
G#m             F 
 Open wide and you'll see  
                E           F#                B         G#m F# E B (2x) 
 Cause we're all damned, damned from the start  
(B)                                     G#m F# E B 
 We're damned from the start
