♡ 'BUY THE STARS' ♡ | MARINA AND THE DIAMONDS

F    G        Dm            C G   Dm 
  You bought a star in the sky   tonight
       F    G        Dm          C Dm        G
Because your life is dark and it needs some light
        F   G      Dm         C    G        Dm  
You named it after me, but I’m not yours to keep
      F        G    Dm             C G       F 
Because you’ll never see, that the stars are free


   Am        C      G       F
Oh we don’t own our heavens now
   Am   C       Em
We only own our hell
    Am      C         G       F
And if you don’t know that by now
          Am        C       Em
Then you don’t know me that well


C       Dm       Am       F
All my life I’ve been so lonely
C          Dm      Am    F
All in the name of being holy
C            Dm          Am     F
Still, you’d like to think you know me
G          F      Dm
 You keep buying stars
     Am        G     C           Dm
And you could buy up all of the stars,
    Am          G      C      Dm
But it wouldn’t change who you are
        Am           F   C      Dm
You’re still living life in the dark
G            F       Dm
   It’s just who you are
G            F       Dm
   It’s just who you are


F    G        Dm         C G   Am 
 You bought a star in the sky  tonight
       F    G        Dm            
And in your man-made dark
      C      G       Dm 
The light inside you died



   Am        C      G       F
Oh we don’t own our heavens now
   Am   C       Em
We only own our hell
    Am      C         G       F
And if you don’t know that by now
          Am        C       Em
Then you don’t know me that well


C       Dm       Am       F
All my life I’ve been so lonely
C          Dm      Am    F
All in the name of being holy
C            Dm          Am     F
Still, you’d like to think you know me
G          F      Dm
 You keep buying stars
     Am        G     C           Dm
And you could buy up all of the stars,
    Am          G      C      Dm
But it wouldn’t change who you are
        Am           F   C      Dm
You’re still living life in the dark
G            F       Dm
   It’s just who you are
G            F       Dm
   It’s just who you are

Am    E  C    E   Am E   C
You know only how to own me
Am    E  C    E   Am E   C
You know only how to own me


C             F             Em       Am
You’re buying stars to shut out the light
C           F         Em      Am
  We come alone and then we die
    C         F      Em      Am
And no matter how hard you try 
     C     F       Em      C
I’ll always belong in the sky

The last chord on the phrase, "Then you don't know me that well" should be E, rather than G.

I updated the chords. I'm pretty sure they're all 100% correct now. I played it along with the song to make sure it's all correct.

At : ''it needs some light'' should it be C-G-DM instead of C-DM-G ?
