[Intro]
 
Dm Dm Dm
 
[Verse 1]
 
Dm
Two hearts that shouldn't
Gm            Eb     A
Talk to each other become close
A               D7
In a town much like a prison cell
 
Dm                 Gm
People speak our names
Gm                            Bbm
On the street in hushed tones
Bbm               Am
Oh the stories they'd tell
Dm                     Eb
If anyone would listen, anyone would listen
 
Dm
You come from a town where
Eb                          Am
People don't bother saying hello
Am         Dm
Unless somebody's born or dies
 
Dm
And I come from a place where they
Gm                           A
Drag your hopes through the mud
A                            D7
Because their own dreams are all dying
 
[Pre-Chorus]
 
Eb                          F
And when we walk down the street
F                           Eb
The wind sings our name in rebel songs
Eb                              F
The sounds of the night should make us anxious
Eb                      F        D
But it's much to late when the fear is gone
 
[Chorus]
 
Gm      Eb               F            D      Gm
I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Gm    Eb           F       Eb   Dm  Gm
Where we can be together, I promise you
Gm      Eb                 F      Eb  D    Gm
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you
Gm    Eb        F
I promise, I promise
 
[Verse 2]
 
Dm
There's so many fighting
D                 A      D
To get past the Pearly Gates
D     A           D
But nobody ever wants to die or get saved
 
Dm
Their intentions aren't that good
D          Gm
And I can smell the asphalt
A                      D7
That's their personal road to hell being paved
 
[Pre-Chorus]
 
Eb                          F
And when we walk down the street
F                           Eb
The wind sings our name in rebel songs
Eb                     F        D       Gm
But it's much to late when the fear is gone
 
[Chorus]
 
Gm      Eb               F            D      Gm
I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Gm    Eb           F       Eb   Dm  Gm
Where we can be together, I promise you
Gm      Eb                 F      Eb  D    Gm
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you
Gm    Eb        F        D
I promise, I promise... Uhhh

                  [Dave Mustaine / Al Pitrelli]

Two hearts that shouldn't
Talk to each other become close
In a town much like a prison cell

People speak our names
On the street in hushed tones
Oh the stories they'd tell
If anyone would listen

You come from a town where
People don't bother saying hello
Unless somebody's born or dies

And I come from a place where they
Drag your hopes through the mud
Because their own dreams are all dying

And when we walk down the street
The wind sings our name in rebel songs
The sounds of the night should make us anxious
But it's much to late when the fear is gone

I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Where we can be together, I promise you
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you
I promise, I promise

There's so many fighting
To get past the Pearly Gates
But nobody ever wants to die or get saved

Their intentions aren't that good
And I can smell the asphalt
That's their personal road to hell being paved

And when we walk down the street
The wind sings our name in rebel songs
But it's much to late when the fear is gone

I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Where we can be together, I promise you
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you
I promise, I promise

[Solo - Pitrelli / Solo - Mustaine]

I will meet you in the Next Life, I promise you
Where we can be together, I promise you
I will wait till then in Heaven, I promise you
I promise, I promise
