DD chord          GbmGbm chord        AA chord     EE chord
I was left to my own devices
DD chord         GbmGbm chord             AA chord          EE chord
Many days fell away with nothing to show


DD chord                           GbmGbm chord
And the walls kept tumbling down
                    AA chord   EE chord
In the city that we loved
DD chord                          GbmGbm chord
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       AA chord  EE chord
Bringing darkness from above


                      DD chord
But if you close your eyes,
        GbmGbm chord
Does it almost feel like
AA chord                  EE chord
Nothing changed at all?
                      DD chord
And if you close your eyes,
        GbmGbm chord
Does it almost feel like
AA chord                EE chord       
You've been here before?


DD chord                    AA chord        EE chord
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
DD chord                    AA chord        EE chord
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?


DD chord              GbmGbm chord             AA chord          EE chord
We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
DD chord            GbmGbm chord          AA chord              EE chord
In your pose as the dust settles around us


DD chord                           GbmGbm chord
And the walls kept tumbling down
                    AA chord   EE chord
In the city that we loved
DD chord                          GbmGbm chord
Great clouds roll over the hills
                       AA chord  EE chord
Bringing darkness from above


                      DD chord
But if you close your eyes,
        GbmGbm chord
Does it almost feel like
AA chord                  EE chord
Nothing changed at all?
                      DD chord
And if you close your eyes,
        GbmGbm chord
Does it almost feel like
AA chord                EE chord       
You've been here before?

How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
