                [intro]

C            F            Em7   Am7
  Fare thee well, my bright star
                F6        G                C/B
I watched your taillights blaze into nothingness
C                    F            Em7           Am9
  But you were long gone before I ever got to you
F6           G                  Am9   Am7
  Before you blazed past this address

    Dm7       Em              F6          G
And now I think of having loved and having lost
    Dm7       Em              F6         G
You never know what it's like to never love
    Dm7       Em              F6          G
Who can say what's better when my heart's become the cost
        Am7         D         G          
A mere token of a brighter jewel sent from up above

C            F            Em7   Am7
Fare thee well, my bright star
                F6        G                C/B
The vanity of youth, the color of your eyes
C                    F            Em7           Am9
Maybe if I'd fanned the blazing fire of your day-to-day
F6           G                  Am9   Am7
Or if I'd been older I'd been wise

    Dm7       Em              F6          G
Too thick the heat of those long summer evenings
    Dm7       Em              F6          G
For a cool evening I began to yearn
    Dm7       Em              F6          G
But you could only feed upon the things which feed a fire
        Am7         D         G          
Waiting to see if I would burn

C            F            Em7   Am7
Fare thee well, my bright star
                F6        G                C/B
It was a brief brilliant miracle dive
C                    F            Em7           Am9
That which I looked up to and I clung to for dear life
F6           G                  Am9   Am7
Had to burn itself up just to make itself alive

    Dm7       Em              F6          G
And I caught you then, in your moment of glory
    Dm7       Em              F6          G
Your last dramatic scene against a night sky stage
    Dm7       Em              F6          G
With a memory so clear it's as if you're still before me
        Am7         D         G          

My once in a lifetime star of an age

C            F            Em7   Am7
So fare thee well, my bright star
                F6        G                C/B
Last night the tongues of fire circled me around
C                    F            Em7           Am9
And this strange season of pain will come to pass
F6           G                  Am9   Am7
When the healing hands of autumn cool me down
