C                               G
I thought the candle was gonna go out;
Am                              F 
The wind was blowing and the door was open,
C                           G   Am         F 
But the candle never went out, never went out.
C                                G      Am                              F 
The wave found it's way to the shore, I thought it was a ripple and nothing 
C                          G           Am            F        
But the wave found it's way all the way to the shore 
G          Am       F     C    G      Am     F      G            
Oh, I wanna burn this house. I know, I wanna jump into the fire; 
G          Am        F    C    G          Am        F          C  
Oh, I've got to tear them down; the pinnacles of my invisible empire. 
I know the gamble never works twice, 
All the distractions at the table and the weighted dice 
But the thrill of it feels so nice, you'd do it all again 
But I look to the chips and lose, 
I'm standing on the platform with my neck in the noose 
And I know it's not my time, not my time. 
Oh, I wanna burn this house. I know, I wanna jump into the fire; 
Oh, I want to tear them down; the pinnacle of my invisible empire. 
And if I do all the things I do, well I tell myself that I'm staying true 
I'll never stop, you know I'll never stop, no I'll never think about it 
Put an end to all this time, that I would spend with it on my mind 
I never stopped, you know I never stop, you know I always wondered about 
I wondered about the wonder. 
Oh, I wear a rusting crown; I know this dynasty is falling. 
The crowd shouts for another round; I see the ruin, 
The spectacular, diamonds buried, icebergs, the minarets, and market-places 
And signal fires of my invisible empire. 
Oh, how long? Oh, how long? Oh, how long?
