Arcade Fire - Ready to Start: chords

D                          A E/G#
Businessmen drink my blood
         F#m                                 Bm
Like the kids in art school said they would
       D                         A E/G#
And I guess I'll just begin again
F#m                              Bm
You say can we still be friends

Chorus:
D          E        D
If I was scared, I would
D             E      A        E/G#
And if I was bored, you know I would
D             E             F#m E
And if I was yours, but I'm not

All the kids have always known
That the emperor wears no clothes
But they bow down to him anyway
Because it's better than being alone

Chorus

Now you're knocking at my door
Saying, "Please come out with us tonight"
But I would rather be alone
Than pretend I feel alright

If the businessmen are drinking my blood
Like the kids at art school said they would
Then I guess I'll just begin again
You say, "Can we still be friends?"

Chorus:
D          E        D
If I was scared, I would
D             E      A        E/G#
And if I was bored, you know I would
D             E             F#m
And if I was yours, but I'm not
E/G#               D
Now I'm ready to start

If I was scared, I would
And if I was pure, you know I would
And if I was yours, but I'm not
Now I'm ready to start

E/G#               D  F#m
Now I'm ready to start
E/G#                D   F#m
I would rather be wrong
     E/G#                    D
Than live in the shadows of your song
           F#m
My mind is open wide
    E/G#               D  F#m
And now I'm ready to start
    E/G#               D
And now I'm ready to start
           F#m
My mind is open wide
    E/G#               D
And now I'm ready to start
                 F#m
Your mind surely opened the door
   E/G#               D  F#m
To step out into the dark
E/G#
Now I'm ready
