Distant Star by First Aid Kit (G)uitar (C)hords

[Verse 1]
(G)
Well, a goodbye never seems finished
(C) (G)
Just like these songs that I write
(Em) (C)
They hang aloft like stars in the night
(Em) (C)
But there’s nothing there but the illusion of a light
D (C) (Em)
And you, you could’ve been mine
(G)
Your mother, she’s an actress
(C) (G)
And we’re all putting on a play
(Em) (C)
Here’s some conviction, pretend that’s all real
(Em) (C)
Try to ignore how sad it all feels
D (C) (Em)
Yes, try not to break her heart if you can

[(C)horus]
(C)
Hold o-o-o-n
(Em)
To whatever you can until it’s gone
(C)
(C)arry o-o-o-n
D (C) (G)
For none of us will be here for too lo-o-o-ng

[Verse 2]
(G) (C) (G)
I’ll try not to let the world and its darkness bring me down
(Em) (C)
Think of the love and the beauty I found
(Em) (C)
The simple things that I’ve left behind
D (C) (Em)
Oh the way he make me laugh

[(C)horus]
(C)
But I hold o-o-o-n
(Em)
To whatever I can until it’s gone
(C)
I’ll (C)arry o-o-o-n
D (C) D (C) (G)
For none of us will be here for too lo-ong lo-o-o-ng

E F E
We are a distant star
F E
But darling, you’re so far away
F E
You were never meant to stay
F E
I reach out to see
F E
If you’re still here with me
F (C)
Baby, we could’ve made it easy
(G)
(C)ouldn’t we?

[Outro]
(G)
Now I will never know you
(C) (G)
You are just someone passing by
(Em) (C)
And it makes me sad to think about
(Em) (C)
All the stories and fates I’ll be without
D
But I think I’m getting used to the silence now
