Intro: F Bb F Bb F Bb F Bb

Verse:
       F                                   Bb
Well I woke up to the sound of silence and guns
                              F                  Bb
were cutting like knives in a fist fight
      F          
And I found you with a bottle of wine
     Bb                                                F          Bb
your head in the curtains and heart like the 4th of July

                   F
You swore and said we are not
           Gm
we are not shining stars
       F
This i know
              Bb
cause i never said we are

            F
Though I've never been through hell like that
     Bb                                                F         Bb   
I've closed enough windows to know you can never look back

Chorus:
          F                         Bb             C
If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      F         Bb        C
Carry on
         F                         Bb             C
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
      F         Bb        C
Carry on
                 F       Bb       F        Bb
Carry on carry on

Verse:
     F                                           Bb
So I met up with some friends at the edge of the night
              F          Bb
at a bar off 75
       F                                            Bb
And we talked and talked about how our parents will die
          F                       Bb
All our neighbors and wives

Pre-Chorus:
        F
But i'd like to think
      Gm
I can cheat it all
        F                         Bb
to make up for the times i've been cheated on
         F
And it's nice to know
           Gm
when i was left for dead
      F
I was found and I know not these streets
     Bb                C
I am not the ghost you want to be

Chorus:
          F                         Bb             C
If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      F         Bb        C
Carry on
         F                         Bb             C
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
      F         Bb        C
Carry on

Interlude:
C
ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

Bridge:
   Bb          F            C            
My head is on fire, but my legs they're fine
            Bb             F        C
Cause after all, they are mine     
                 Bb           F                C
Lay your clothes down on the floor, close the door, hold the phone
        Bb             C
show me how, no one's ever gonna stop us tonight

Interlude:
    F   Gm   F  Bb
    F   Gm   F  Bb

Pre-Chorus:
      F              Gm
Cause we are, we are shining stars
         F               Bb
We are invincible, we are who we are
       F                       Gm
On our darkest day, when we're miles away
         F                         Bb     C
Sun will come, we will find our way home

Chorus:
          F                         Bb             C
If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      F         Bb        C
Carry on
         F                         Bb             C
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
      F         Bb        C
Carry on

Outro:
               F         Bb
Carry on carry on
               F         Bb
Carry on carry on

  1. during the verses i would strum once for each note and draw it out and then during the chorus i would do i simple strum pattern.

  2. 2+ has easier chords, yet I dont know a good strumming pattern that fits well enough

  3. I don’t understand, why are there letters above this strange poetry?

  4. Or take it to -3 for easier chords and, probably, the ability to actually sing with the song if you have trouble with those high notes.

  5. DarkLinkRises

    ko

  6. transpose it +2 for easier notes

  7. zoe_aislinn

    it sounds like there should be a few more chords here, but most of it sounds great!
