Repeat twice

C/G
Whatever happened to the fall of Rome?
       F
What a strange thing to ask when I was taking you home
       C/G
as we walked alone in the parking lot
         F
I said I don’t have much, you said I like what you’ve got

           G                                                 F       C/G
And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t picture you then in your wedding dress
        G                                       F      C/G
And the days I hoped we’d someday spend in our Sunday best
        F          C/G         F        C/G
We were light as a flame, both batshit insane
         Am              G        C/G
We were lost but we were just the same

C/G
Whatever happened to the fall of Rome?
           F
You were a mystery to me but the place felt like home
        C/G
There are no rules when you're fallin’ in love
          F
You just take what you get and you hope it’s enough

            G                                                F       C/G
And I’d be lying if I said I didn’t picture you then in your wedding dress
        G                                      F      C/G
And the days I hoped we’d someday spend in our Sunday best
        F               C/G            F       C/G
We were wrong from the start, with our broken hearts
                Am         G        F      C/G
You played your role and I played my part

F C/G F C/G

                 F   C/G
And the road was so long
            F   C/G
I was never as strong
       Am            G       F    C/G
As the love that you gave to me
               F   C/G               F   C/G
And it all took its toll, you become so cold
           Am                 G       C/G
That you forget what you were born to be

C/G

C/G
Whatever happened to the fall of Rome?
      F (a little bit of strumming)
Those people all turned to ashes and stone
       C/G
It’s a trick of the mind, when you think it won’t end
       F
It’s  contest with time and time always wins

        G         (little bit of strumming)  F        C/G
I saw a picture of you the other day in your wedding dress
      G                                 F            C/G
And I wondered why I walked away like I had with the rest
             F    C/G             F     C/G
You were the only thing that was worth saving
      Am           G      C/G
And I swear that I did my best

Build on C/G

        G                                          F       C/G
And sometimes at night I dream of you now in your wedding dress
      G                                   F        C/G
And I hope it doesn’t seem somehow like I gave you less
       F          C/G              F            C/G
I have nothing to show from these years on the road
          Am            G        C/G
But these songs that I wrote for you
