Version 1 -version 2 below-:

Intro: E B F# G#m

Verse:
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#
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
        G#m
Of the afterglow


G#m
I've gotta know…

Chorus:
F#             E
Can we work it out?
                 G#m                    B      F#
If we scream and shout 'till we work it out
                     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 -same chords as first-:
Afterlife, I think I saw what happens next
Oh it was just a glimpse of you, like looking through a window
Or a shallow sea
Could you see me?
And after all this time
It's like nothing else we used to know
And after all the hangers-on are done hanging on to the dead light
Of the afterglow
I've gotta know…

Chorus:
F#              E
Can we work it out?
                  G#m                    B
Let's 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?

F#  E
Oh
               G#m
When love is gone
               B
Where does it go?

And you say
F#  E
Oh
              G#m
When love is gone
               B
Where does it go?
                 E
And where do we go?
             G#m
Where do we go?
             F#
Where do we go?
             E
Where do we go?

Verse -same as first-:
And after this
Can it last another night?
After all the bad advice
Had nothing at all to do with life
I've gotta know

Chorus:
F#              E
Can we work it out?
                  G#m                    B
Let's 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?

Bridge:

But you say

When love is gone
              B
Where did it go?

Oh
              G#m
When love is gone
              B
Where did it go?
                 F#   E
And where do we go?
