Verse 1:

       E                                   A
Well I woke up to the sound of silence and guns
                              E          A
Were cutting like knives in a fist fight
      E          
And I found you with a bottle of wine
     A                                                E          A
Your head in the curtains and heart like the 4th of July

                   E
You swore and said we are not
           F#m
We are not shining stars
       G#m
This I know
              A
cause I never said we are

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


Chorus:

          E                         A             B
If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      E                    A          B
Carry on
         E                         A             B
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
      E                    A          B
Carry on
                 E          A          E          A
Carry on carry on


Verse 2:

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

Pre-chorus:

        E
But I'd like to think
      F#m
I can cheat it all
        G#m                        A
To make up for the times I've been cheated on
         E
And it's nice to know
           F#m
When I was left for dead
      G#m
I was found and I know not these streets
     A                B
I am not the ghost you want to be


(This riff plays through the pre-chorus)

If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      E                    A          B
Carry on
         E                         A             B
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground

Carry on

Ohhhhh


Bridge:

   A          E            B            
My head is on fire, but my legs they're fine
            A             E        B
Cause after all, they are mine     
                 A           E                B
Lay your clothes down on the floor, close the door, hold the phone
        A             B
Show me how, no one's ever gonna stop us now

      E              F#m
Cause we are, we are shining stars

We are invincible, we are who we are
       E                       F#m
On our darkest day, when we're miles away
         G#m                          A          B
Sun will come, we will find our way home
