D        Bm
The star,
               F#m    E
that gives us light
                  D   Bm
Has been gone a while
                  F#m     E
But it’s not an illusion
     D      Bm
The ache
        F#m  E
In my heart
             D Bm          F#m   E
Is so much a part of who I am

Something in your eyes
          F#m                 E
Took a thousand years to get here

A                  Bm
Something in your eyes

Took a thousand years, a thousand years

Hold me close, hold me close and don’t let me go.

Hold me close like I’m someone that you might know

Hold me close the darkness just lets us see
       D    Bm  
Who we are

I’ve got your life inside of me

Once we are born, we begin to forget
                   F#m  E
The very reason we came
    D   Bm
But you
              F#m  E
I’m sure I’ve met
                  D                   Bm
Long before the night the stars went out
                   F#m    E
We’re meeting up again

[Chorus]

Hold me close, hold me close and don’t let me go.

Hold me close the darkness just lets us see
       D    Bm  
Who we are
               F#m          E
I’ve got your life inside of me

D Bm F#m E x2
Iris… Iris…

[MIDDLE]

        The stars are bright but do they know
A Bm F#m                    E
        The universe is beautiful but cold

                    D
You took me by the hand
    Bm                       F#m      
I thought that I was leading you

Where you are

Don’t fear the world it isn’t there

She buries the boy beneath the sand,

Iris says that I will be the death of her
E
It was not me
