Intro: Em -4 bars-, Cadd9 -2 bars-, Am -1 bar-, C -1 bar-

Verse:
       Em
If the fish swam out of the ocean 
and grew legs and they started walking 
        Cadd9
and the apes climbed down from the trees 
         Am                    C  
and grew tall and they started talking 

        Em
And the stars fell out of the sky 
and my tears rolled into the ocean 
        Cadd9
now i'm looking for a reason why 
         Am                C  
you even set my world into motion 

Chorus:
         Em
Cause if you're not really here 
then the stars don't even matter 
        Cadd9
now i'm filled to the top with fear 
         Am                  C  
but it's all just a bunch of matter 
         Em
Cause if you're not really here 
then I don't want to be either 
           Cadd9
I wanna be next to you 
          Am
black and gold
          C   
black and gold
          Em 
black and gold

Verse - same as first -:
i looked up into the night sky 
and see a thousand eyes staring back 
and all around these golden beacons 
i see nothing but black 

i feel a way of something beyond them 
i don't see what i can feel 
if vision is the only validation 
then most of my life isn't real
 
Chorus:
         Em
Cause if you're not really here 
then the stars don't even matter 
        Cadd9
now i'm filled to the top with fear 
         Am                  C  
but it's all just a bunch of matter 
         Em
Cause if you're not really here 
then I don't want to be either 
           Cadd9
I wanna be next to you 
          Am
black and gold
          C   
black and gold
          Em 
black and gold
