[Intro]
E A E A E A E A

[Verse 1]
       E                                   A
Well I woke up to the sound of silence and guns
                              E                  A
We're 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
       E
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 neighbours and wives

[Pre-Chorus]
        E
But I'd like to think
      F#m
I can cheat it all
        E                         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
      E
I was found and I know not these streets
     A                B
I am not the ghost you want to be

[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
B
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

[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 tonight
E   F#m   E  A
E   F#m   E  A

[Pre-Chorus]
      E              F#m
'Cause we are, we are shining stars
         E               A
We are invincible, we are who we are
       E                       F#m
On our darkest day, when we're miles away
         E                         A     B
Sun will come, we will find our way home

[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

[Outro]
               E         A
Carry on carry on
               E         A
Carry on carry on
