Verse One:

   A               E        D   
As fireworks burst over the land,
           B                                A      B 
I could've sworn I felt the influence of an unseen hand -
A            E              D 
the ghost of someone else's dream,
     B                         A          B 
a forgotten god stopping by to survey the scene.


        A                 E         D 
And the lights were complicated and so we all just
B                       A         B
prayed to the spirits above and below
         A                 E               A
that the water would never reach us in time,
            B                              A   B
but I had a feeling that we'd never get to 2009...

Chorus:

A                        E        A 
Didn't want a wave but a wave was coming, yeah,
   D                           A           E
we didn't want to swim but the cities were sinking
              A                             E           A  
and though we wanted to react we were too busy sleeping through
    D                               A        E
the ground that was shaking and the bass was thumping.
                D                    A
There's a tidal wave coming so you'd better start learning to swim
           D                                 A
(There's a tidal wave coming so you'd better start learning)
    D                         A                 D    E
and now's as good as any as a time and place to begin...

Verse Two:

   A                 E               D
On TV, they said the storms wouldn't last
          B                               A              B 
but their answers didn't correlate to the questions we'd asked.
          A                             E        D
They said "A spark that's gone is not a spark to mourn,
            B                          A     B 
you can't resuscitate a person who was never born."

     A                      E               D
So I climbed to the tallest building in town
           B                           A              B
to see the rain rushing in, to feel my heart breaking down
           A                              E           D        
and as the blue sheen drew nearer I saw a window to another world,
B                                A                B 
strange fish I'd never seen, and in that moment I realized:

A                        E        A
Didn't want a wave but a wave was coming
   D                           A           E               
we didn't want to swim but the cities were sinking
              A                       E        A  
and though we wanted to react we were too busy sleeping through
    D                               A        E 
the ground that was shaking and the bass was thumping.
          D                          A
There's a tidal wave coming so you'd better start learning to swim
           D                          A  
(There's a tidal wave coming so you'd better start learning)
             D                A
and now's as good as any as a time and place to begin...

Bridge:

A
I should have known this was coming, yeah,
   D                        B
it could not have been more obvious.
A
Like the flood that Noah dreamed about
       D               B
except bigger and more ominous.
A
I should have seen this unfolding, yeah,
   D                        B
it could not have been more obvious.
A 
Like the flood that Noah dreamed about
       D               B
except bigger and more ominous.

Solo thing:

OR you could just play A D B the same way you did during the bridge

Verse Three:

A                         E        D
Every moment lost someone else has won,
B                              A       B 
every time you breathe there's another gone.
A                         E      D
Every passing second is a minute late,
B                           A    B
every breath can escalate a hurricane.

    A                              E         D
And do you think we'd realize just what we'd done -
B                         A           B 
tore down the canvas that held up the sun?
   A                           E    D
We ripped down the canvas hung up above,
            B
but what if we were created to gaze, what if we were created to gaze at the 
          
stars up above?

A                        E        D
Didn't want a wave but a wave was coming, yeah,
   B                           A           B  
we didn't want to swim but the cities were sinking
              A                       E        D         
and though we wanted to react we were too busy sleeping through
    B                               A        B 
the ground that was shaking and the bass was thumping.
