1. 2000 Light Years Away

C          G      
I sit alone in my bedroom 
Staring at the walls
I've been up all damn night long
My pulse is speeding, my love is yearning

Am                   C  
I hold my breath and close eyes
   Am           G
And dream about her
F             G               C
Cause she's 2000 light years away
She holds my mala kite so tight so
Never let go
Cause she 2000 light years away

I sit outside and watch the sunrise
Lookout as far as I can
I can't see her, but in the distance
I hear some laughter, we laugh together
