Bastille - Quarter Past Midnight: chords

        G#                                          C#
It's a quarter past midnight as we cut through the city (yeah, yeah, yeah)
      G#                                            C#
The streets are getting restless, good times, bad decisions (yeah, yeah)
        G#                                       C#
It's a quarter past midnight and the sirens are mending some hearts
               G#                                          C#
But we're the losers on the back seats singing "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

                     G#                        C#
It's a quarter past midnight, still avoiding tomorrow
                     G#                                C#
It's a quarter past midnight, but we're just getting going

Chorus:
    C#               G#
We keep on running, running through a red light
 D#                            Fm
Like we're trying to burn the night away
 C#                 G#
Away-ay-ay, away-ay-ay, oh
 D#                 Fm
Away-ay-ay, away-ay-ay, oh oh

C#                   G#
This is my favorite part, oh
D#                      Fm
Help me piece it all together darling
C#                G#
Before it falls apart, oh
D#
Help me piece it all together

It's a quarter past midnight
And the speakers are blowing
Yeah, yeah, we want the bodies on the billboards
Not the lives underneath them
Yeah, yeah, yeah, and now we're crawling up the walls again
And it's a quarter past twelve
And you said we'd leave this place in dust
And fall from heaven straight through hell
We never know what we have
We never knew what we had

Chorus:
We keep on running
Running through a red light
Like we're trying to burn the night away
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh
Why are we always chasing after something
Like we're trying to throw our lives away?
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh

This is my favourite part, oh
Help me piece it all together, darling
Before it falls apart, oh
Help me piece it all together

G#                C#
I can't remember, I can't remember
G#                C#
I can't remember, I can't remember

       G#                                    C#
It's a quarter past midnight and the secrets are flowing
    G#                                         C#
Our lips are getting looser, I don't know what I'm saying
                         G#
We never knew what we had, never know what I've had

Chorus:
We keep on running
Running through a red light
Like we're trying to burn the night away
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh
Why are we always chasing after something
Like we're trying to throw our lives away?
Away-way, oh, away-way, oh

This is my favourite part so
Help me piece it all together, darling
Before it falls apart
Help me piece it all together
