Bridge:
Dm
  The autumn chill that wakes me up
Bb
  You loved the amber skies so much
F
  Long limbs and frozen swims
        C
  You'd always go past where our feet could touch
Dm
  And I complained the whole way there
Bb
  The car ride back and up the stairs
F
  I should've asked you questions
C
  I should've asked you how to be
F                       Bb
  Asked you to write it down for me
                        F
  Should've kept every grocery store receipt
                C
  'Cause every scrap of you would be taken from me
Gm                           Bb
  Watched as you signed your name Marjorie
                       F
  All your closets of backlogged dreams
               C
  And how you left them all to me
 
Chorus:
Gm                 Bb
  What died didn't stay dead
                    F
  What died didn't stay dead
                            C
  You're alive, you're alive in my head
Gm                 Bb
  What died didn't stay dead
                    F
  What died didn't stay dead
                      C
  You're alive, so alive
 
Post-Chorus:
Gm                     Bb
  And if I didn't know better
                 F                  C
  I'd think you were singing to me now
F                  Bb
  If I didn't know better
F                            C
  I'd think you were still around
F        Bb
  I know better
               F             C
  But I still feel you all around
F        Bb
  I know better
F                        C
  But you're still around
