How To Play

INTRO
| Bm            | Em            | Bm            | Em            |
| Em*           |
 
VERSE 1
Bm7              Em7
  You used to be my closest ally
Bm7                        Em7
  in this cold, cold world   of deception and lies, ooh.
Bm7                                    Em7
  We would defend and protect one and another
Bm7                            Em7
  now, I can't tell if we're enemies or lovers.
 
CHORUS
    F#m7**      Em7**  F#m7**     Em7**
So, who's gonna rescue us from ourselves?
Dmaj7**       Gmaj7**             Dmaj7**  Gmaj7**
When we gonna wake up? Baby, it's time for lovin'
Dmaj7**       Gmaj7**     Fmaj7**                    A7**
When we gonna wake up, my baby, before it's too late?
 
VERSE 2
    Bm7                          Em7
Oh, baby! Where did we go wrong, baby?
Bm7                                  Em7
  Uh, huh. Did this cold, cold world   turn us into stone?
Bm7                          Em7
  Now all our battle is your ego and you pride.
Bm7                              Em7
  It's ticking like a time bomb, ready to ignite. Hurts me to fight.
 
CHORUS
    F#m7**      Em7**  F#m7**     Em7**
So, who's gonna rescue us from ourselves?
Dmaj7**       Gmaj7**             Dmaj7**  Gmaj7**
When we gonna wake up? Baby, it's time for lovin'.
Dmaj7**       Gmaj7**     Fmaj7**                    A7**
When we gonna wake up, my baby, before it's too late?
        Dmaj7**        Gmaj7**    Dmaj7**  Gmaj7**
When we gonna wake up, baby? It's time for loving.
             Dmaj7**     Gmaj7** Fmaj7**            A7**
Are we gonna wake up, my baby be-fore it's too late?
 
BRIDGE
         F#m7**       Fmaj7**      Em7**                  Dmaj7**
When the smoke clears what will be left for hot tears and pain?
            F#m7**         Fmaj7**             Em7**                Dmaj7**
Why must we argue over the same thing, just to wake up and go back again?
               F#m7**              Fmaj7**
It's never too late, it's been too long,
             Em7**                             Dmaj7**
can't get it right where no one thinks they're wrong.
       F#m7**         Fmaj7**                     Em7**       Dmaj7**
Got to get out of bed   and take a look at what's going on.
 
[End-Chorus]
            Dmaj7**        Gmaj7**    Dmaj7**  Gmaj7**
Oh, when we gonna wake up, baby? It's time for loving.
              Dmaj7**     Gmaj7** Fmaj7**            A7**
When we gonna wake up, my baby, before it's too late?
            Dmaj7**        Gmaj7**    Dmaj7**  Gmaj7**
Oh, when we gonna wake up, baby? It's time for loving.
              Dmaj7**     Gmaj7** Fmaj7**            A7**
When we gonna wake up, my baby, before it's too late?
            Dmaj7**        Gmaj7**    Dmaj7**  Gmaj7**
Oh, when we gonna wake up, baby? It's time for loving.
              Dmaj7**     Gmaj7** Fmaj7**            A7**
When we gonna wake up, my baby, before it's too late?
