1. The first snow, first winter of my life,

              G                                    A

    I was told it was the height of me.

             A                                                  Em

    The first dance, well, the first one that counted,

                          G                                          A

    felt like my blood was built from crackling lights.

 

      A                       Em                G                       A

    Oh, this ancient wildness that we don't understand,

            A                     Em               G               A

    the first sound of a heartbeat to riot roaring on.

 

    A                                             Em

This is not a love you've had before,

                                    - G                                         - A

this is something else,        this is something else !

    A                                          Em

This is not the same as other days,

                                    - G                                       - A

this is something else,       this is something else !

        A                                            Em

It shouldn't need to be so fucking hard,

                      G                               A

this is life on earth, it's just life on earth.

       A                                         Em

It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me,

                      G                              A

this is life on earth, it's just life on earth.

2. The first light, first light on the silent shore,

                    G                                     A

    just the ships set anchor, me and you.

              A                                          Em

    The way home, this is always the way home,

                       G                                          A

    so you can rip that map to shreds, my dear.

 

            A                 Em                   G                               A

    But all we ever wanted seems miles and miles from here,

                A                     Em                     G                  A

    in the first days in a strange new land we could be sailors.

 

    A                                             Em

This is not a love you've had before,

                                    - G                                         - A

this is something else,        this is something else !

    A                                          Em

This is not the same as other days,

                                    - G                                       - A

this is something else,       this is something else !

        A                                            Em

It shouldn't need to be so fucking hard,

                      G                               A

this is life on earth, it's just life on earth.

       A                                         Em

It doesn't need to be the end of you, or me,

                      G                              A

this is life on earth, it's just life on earth.
