How To Play

[Verse 1: Clean]
C       G                        Am
   The drought was the very worst
F
Oh-oh, oh-oh
C             G                   Am          F              C
   When the flowers that we'd grown together died of thirst
         G                            Am
It was months and months of back and forth
 F
Oh-oh, oh-oh
 
 
C G Am F
 
 
[Pre-Chorus: Clean]
G                 F
Hung my head as I lost the war
G                               F
And the sky turned black like a perfect storm
 
 
[Chorus: Clean]
C           G       Am
  Rain came pouring down
                     F                           C
When I was drowning, that's when I could finally breathe
       G
And by morning
Am                          F                    C
Gone was any trace of you, I think I am finally clean
G                    Am
I think I am finally clean
 
 
[Verse 1: Long Live]
                     C                         F
I said remember this moment, in the back of my mind
                           Am
The time we stood with our shaking hands
    G                         F
The crowds in the stands went wild
                          C
We were the Kings and the Queens
                      F
And they read off our names
                              Am
The night you danced like you knew our lives
      G            F
Would never be the same
                          C
You held your head like a hero
                  F
On a history book page
                    Am      G
It was the end of a decade
                    F
But the start of an age
 
 
[Chorus: Long Live]
     C                         F
Long live the walls we crashed through
                       Am                         G
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
                     C                     F
I was screaming long live all the magic we made
                         Am                    G
And bring on all the pretenders, I'm not afraid
     C                         F
Long live all the mountains we moved
                     Am                           G
I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you
                     C                      F
I was screaming long live that look on your face
                     Am
And bring on all the pretenders
    F               C
One day, we will be remembered
 
 
[Bridge: Long Live]
C          F        G
Hold on to spinning around
C         F           G
Confetti falls to the ground
C
May these memories break our fall
 
 
[Transition: New Year's Day]
C
And hold on...
F           G
To spinning around...
C
Confetti...
F            G
Falls to the ground...
 
 
[Verse 1: New Year's Day]
C Am F
                                       C    Am F
There's glitter on the floor after the party
                                       C    Am F
Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby
                                C        Am F
Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor
 
You and me from the night before, but
 
 
[Chorus: New Year's Day]
C       Am   F    C
  Don't read the last page
C       Am   F                                                   C
  But I stay when you're lost, and I'm scared And you're turning away
   Am  F    C
I want your midnights
C                         Am                  F          C
  But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day
 
 
[Verse 2: New Year's Day]
C Am F
                                                  C    Am F
You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi
                                         C Am F
I can tell that it's gonna be a long road
                                                  C Am F
I'll be there if you're the toast of the town, babe
 
Or if you strike out and you're crawling home
 
 
[Chorus: New Year's Day]
C       Am   F    C
  Don't read the last page
C       Am   F                                               C
  But I stay when it's hard, or it's wrong Or we're making mistakes
   Am  F    C
I want your midnights
C                         Am                  F          C
  But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day
 
 
[Post-Chorus: New Year's Day]
        C Am        F                   G
Hold on      to the memories, they will hold on to you
C        Am      F                   G
  Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
C        Am      F                   G
  Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
Am Em F            G
        And I will hold on to you
 
 
[Bridge: New Year's Day]
C Am F G
C Am F G
 
C      Am     F            G
Please don't ever become a stranger whose
C     Am       F        G
laugh I could recognize anywhere
C      Am     F            G
Please don't ever become a stranger whose
C     Am       F        G
laugh I could recognize anywhere
 
 
[Verse 3: New Year's Day]
C Am F
                                       C    Am F
There's glitter on the floor after the party
                                       C    Am F
Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby
                                C        Am F
Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor
 
You and me from the night before, but
 
 
[Chorus: New Year's Day]
C       Am   F    C
  Don't read the last page
C       Am   F                                                   C
  But I stay when you're lost, and I'm scared And you're turning away
   Am  F    C
I want your midnights
C                         Am                  F          C
  But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day
 
 
[Post-Chorus: New Year's Day]
        C Am        F                   G
Hold on      to the memories, they will hold on to you
C        Am      F                   G
  Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
C        Am      F                   G
  Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you
 
 
[Transition: Long Live]
         C
And Long live
 
(Please don't ever become a stranger)
             F
The walls we crashed through
 
(Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere)
                     Am
I had the time of my life
 
(Please don't ever become a stranger)
     G
With you
 
(Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere)
 
 
[Outro: Long Live]
         C
And Long live
                     F
The walls we crashed through
                     Am
I had the time of my life
     G
With you
