[Intro]
E-B-F#-G#m x4

[Verse 1]
E     B     F#                       G#m
 Afterlife, oh my god, what an awful word
E              B                           F#              G#m
 After all the breath and the dirt and the fires are burnt
E                   B         F#                       G#m
 And after all this time, and after all the ambulances go
E                  B                                     F#                      G#m
 And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on in the dead lights of the afterglow
G#m
I've gotta know...

[Chorus]
F#              E
 Can we work it out?
                 G#m                    B
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
F#                  E
Can we just work it out?
           G#m                    B
Scream and shout 'till we work it out
                 E                     G#m
'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out
                 F#                    E
'Till we work it out, 'till we work it out

[Verse 2]
E     B       F#                       G#m
 Afterlife, I think I saw what happens next
E                  B                                      F#                     G#m  
 Oh, it was just a glimpse of you, like looking through a window or a shallow sea
Could you see me?
E                   B               F#                      G#m
 And after all this time, it's like nothing else we used to know
E                  B                                     F#                      G#m
 And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on in the dead lights of the afterglow
G#m
I've gotta know...

[Chorus]
F#              E
 Can we work it out?
                 G#m                    B
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
F#                  E
Can we just work it out?
                 G#m                    B
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out

[Bridge]
            F#    E
But you say, ohhhhh
             G#m                 B
When love is gone, where does it go?
            F#    E
And you say, ohhhhh
             G#m                 B
When love is gone, where does it go?
                E
And where do we go?
            B
Where do we go?
            F#
Where do we go?
            G#m
Where do we go?
            E
Where do we go?
            B
Where do we go?
            F#
Where do we go?
            G#m
Where do we go?

[Verse 3]
E          B
 And after this
F#                  G#m
Can it last another night?
E              B
 After all the bad advice
         F#                        G#m
That had nothing at all to do with life
G#m
I've gotta know...

[Chorus]
F#              E
 Can we work it out?
                 G#m                    B
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
F#                  E
Can we just work it out?
                 G#m                    B
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out

[Bridge]
            F#    E
But you say, ohhhhh
             G#m                 B
When love is gone, where does it go?
            F#    E
And you say, ohhhhh
             G#m                 B
When love is gone, where does it go?
F#   E
Ohhhhh
             G#m                B
When love is gone, where did it go?
F#    E
Ohhhhhh
             G#m                    B
We know it's gone, but where did it go?
                F#    E    G#m   B
And where do we go?

[Outro]
F# E G#m B x5

(Chords don't really work here, but you can alternate E with B to substitute)
Is this the afterlife?
It's just an afterlife with you
It's just an afterlife
It's just an afterlife with you
It's just an afterlife
