____________________C
Just words on the ether

--Am ----------------- C
A trail, strung out in space

----------Dm----
We never learned

--------C------------Am6-----------F6-G7
Flesh grew on their bones while we slept

-----------C -------------Am
Bluebird singing sweetly, still

-------C-------------Dm
For a mate who won't return

---C ---------F#dim7------F6-G7
An ending the heart won't accept


 ------------------Am --------------Em
As we measure the distance from the sun

-------------F6----- 
Back to the moon in a flash

-----------------Am---------------Em
We misread their meaning and it's done

----------F6--
Ended too soon
------------------G6
It's crashed, it's broken down

Cmaj7-F#dim7
Hey, little bird

F------------------------Am6
What's the word? What's wrong?

Cmaj7-----------F#dim7
Goodnight, Yeah, good afternoon

F ------------------------- C -----------
Miss your wish, I miss your song

C -----------F#dim7
No snowdrop asterisk

F -------------------D7
Your little glyph is gone

------C-----------F#dim7
You've flown, left us all alone

F ----------------C-------
With everyone, so long

Cmaj7----------------------F#dim7 ---
All the early hours and the afternoons

F-------------------Am6--------
Trapped in time and space

-------Cmaj7---------F#dim7 ------------
On the avenue and in crowded rooms

F --------------C --------------
I never find my proper place

C---------------------
Makes me wanna get high

-----D7-------------------
Fly, forget about the world

F----------------------D7
Gonna get over you somehow

--------------C ---------------- D7 --------
And though it hurts to start and be drawn apart

F --------------------C
Got to be without you now

C--------------------D7----------
People are stars, they're so beautiful

F-----------------------------C 
But they'll do what they will do

C --------------D7----------
Life is strange, things change

F -----------------C -------
Hang on to what is true

C ----------------D7-----------------
People are stars, they're so beautiful

F-----------------------------C ---------------
But they'll do what they will do

C ---------------D7 ---------
Life is strange, things change

F ---------------(no chord)
But we can make it through
