Lifetime

	  		Intro: F   Am   G  (x2) 
 
F                    Am         G 
Allie woke up eight am graduation day 
F                      Am                        G 
got into her car crashed along the way 
F                      Am               G 
we arrived late, to the wake, stole the urn while they looked away 
        F                                         Am                              G 
and drove to the beach, cause I knew you'd want it that way 
Dm                                                     Dm / Em 
We were standing on the hood of the car 
F                                       G 
singing out loud when the sun came up 
 
           F                     Am                      G 
And  I know it wasn't right, but it felt so good 
                F                        Am                          G 
And your mother didn't mind, like I thought she would 
              F                         Am                G 
And that REM song was playing in my mind.  
Dm                       Dm / Em    
And three and a half minutes...  
F       G                          
        felt like a lifetime 
F  Am   G                         F  Am  G (PAUSE) 
               felt like a lifetime 
                              F        Am       G 
And you move like water 
                                F        Am       G 
I could drown in you 
                     F               Am            G       
And I fell so deep once 
                             F            Am   G  
Till you pulled me through                    you would tell me 
Dm                                       Dm / Em 
No one is allowed to be so proud 
         F                                        G 
They never reached in till they'd given up (?) 
 
           F                          Am                  G 
And  I know it wasn't right, but it felt so good 
                F                          Am                       G 
And your mother didn't mind, like I thought she would 
               F                       Am                 G 
And that REM song was playing in my mind.  
         Dm                       Dm / Em    
And three and a half minutes...  
F       G                          
        felt like a lifetime 
 
(LISTEN TO THE CD FOR THE TIMING, IT'S ALL FAST BAR CHORDS) 
Em / Dm /Am / G / Dm / Am / F     G 
 
F     G    Dm  Am  G  Am  F         G 
Are you standing in the light, 
                        Em / Dm /Am / G / Dm / Am / F     G 
combing your hair again 
                       F           G 
and talking in ryhmes 
F   G   Dm   Am  G  Am  F         G (HOLD) 
are you standing in the light 
 
F                           Am                              G 
When I got home heard the phone, your parents had arrived 
          F                              Am                          G 
Your dad set his jaw, your ma just smiled and sighed 
        F                           Am                      G 
But they left soon, so I went to my room played that disc that you'd given me 
F                         Am                              G 
Shut my eyes, I swear I could hear the sea 
 
 
Dm                                                    Dm / Em 
We were standing on the hood of the car 
F                                       G 
singing out loud when the sun came up 
 
            F                       Am                  G 
And  I know it wasn't right, but it felt so good 
                F                         Am                          G 
And your mother didn't mind, like I thought she would 
               F                        Am                G 
And that REM song was playing in my mind.  
Dm                              Dm / Em      F         
And three and a half minutes...  
G 
felt like a life time 
 
<G chord during the song with your index finger but I can't write tabs yet.
