Ruins by First Aid Kit Guitar Chords

[Intro]
G

[Verse]
  G                                          D
Today, I climbed the highest mountain I have ever climbed
      G                              D
And I turned, to look at ruins I had left behind
    G                      D                         G
And you, where were you so far removed from any truth?
  Bm                C
I lost you, didn't I?
                       G
First I think I lost myself

    G                                  D
Children, then and forever locked in a memory
   G                                            D
Oh then, that mirror searching for some kind of certainty
     G                          D                          G
That you, were just the same as everyone but you were wrong
       Bm                 C
And it hurt you, didn't it?
                 G
All you couldn't be


[Chorus]
  G
Ruins
  C
Ohhh
  G
Ruins

Ohhh


[Verse]
  G                                D
I tried, to hold onto some kind of dignity
    G                                D
Too long, I waded through a vast and endless sea
    G                      D                  G
Thinking, I could find the secret there within
      Bm               C
But I gave up, didn't I?
                G
Seemed the only way

  G                                         D
Ruins, all the things we built assured that they would last
    G                         D                            G
Standing, on ticket stubs and written notes and photographs
                   D                         G
Where are you, and here somewhere I cannot go
     Bm         C
I am sorry, I am
                   G
But I won't take it back


[Bridge]
    C             G                   C                   G
And in the night I hear your voice sometimes but it quickly passes
   C                G                   C               D
In dreams I saw what I had thought could be some kind of answer
    C
You try and try and try until you cannot try no more
G
Captured in our own

[Chorus]
