Stars - Your Ex-lover Is Dead tab

Your Ex-Lover is Dead -- Stars

Out of all the versions to choose from, I found them to be over-simplified or 
unnecessarily complicated. Here's my compilation with full lyrics. Enjoy!  --Travis

             C                  F  -  G
God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said "yes I think we've met before"
In that instant it started to pour
           F                    Am  -  G
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of that time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name

               C                     F  -  G
This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
You tried to reach deep but you couldn't get in
And now you're outside me you see all the beauty
Repent all your sin........
                 F                           Am  -  G
It's nothing but time and a face that you'll lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn't choose
I'll write you a postcard, I'll send you the news
From the house down the road, from real love

Bridge: repeat intro x4, 1st time instrumental
Am   Am/B    C   D/F#      F     F    C
Live through this, and you won't look back. x3    to C, F-G strumming

                    C                      F    -     G
There's one thing I want to say so I'll be brave. You were what I
                    wanted, I gave what I gave. I'm not sorry I
                    met you, I'm not sorry it's over, I'm not sorry
            there's nothing to save....... I'm not sorry (hold)
            there's nothing to save

Outro: F, Am-G instrumental x8, then intro x1
