Life Is A Long Time

	  		This is a pretty basic tab of the most obvious chords, it might be missing a bit but you can play along  
to it easily and the Chorus is fairly accurate. 
play around with it and give me feedback if you get any great ideas 

G                              
My brown eyes, two pools of mud 
Em                                       D           G 
Resting in two dark moons, they turn the tide into a flood 
Em                                    G  
And the bloodshot lines in the whites map every A road in this town, 
Em                                  D                G 
All the glare of the city lights, every cul de sac we've talked down 
G                                         Em 
Over time they build up the city, and our arguments show it all 
G                                Em  
Every ring road, every motorway, displayed in crease and wrinkle 
C                                         D 
Until my face is a map you have folded up one hundred, one thousand times. 


Em                        G              C       G 
You know it starts pretty rough and ends up even worse, 
              Em    G                 C                 G      
And what goes on in between, I try to keep it out of my thoughts 

G 
Your blue eyes are like the deepest and the warmest seas 
Em                                          D                G 
As the salt elevates my body, they float my heart up past my teeth 
Em                                      G 
And with the water and the Cypriot sun, would your psoriasis bleach and be gone? 
Em                                  D                      G   
Would it fix the pallor of my skin? Would my freckles all meld into one? 
G                                 Em 
Your body above me, sobbing down, my cheeks wet from your tears 
G                                   Em 
They extinguish each of the burning thread veins, flow down to my ears 
C                                         D 
Now they rest in two tiny reservoirs that overfed the wedded canals 

Em                        G              C       G 
You know it starts pretty rough and ends up even worse, 
              Em     G                C                 G    
And what goes on in between, I try to keep it out of my thoughts 

Break: Am         C G Em   Am          C Em G   Am          C G Em     Am            C Em G 

    C                                         Em                G 
And life, life is a long time, too long to my mind, too long by far 
           Em                  D                   Em                   G 
Between my waterfalls and your landslides, there's cartography in every scar 
      C                                   Em                G 
Life, life is a long time, too long to my mind, too long by far 

Em                       G              C       G 
Because it starts pretty rough and ends up even worse, 
              Em    G                 C                 G 
And what goes on in between, I try to keep it out of my thoughts 
Em                        G         C            G 
You know it starts pretty rough and ends up even worse, 
              Em     G                C                 G    
And what goes on in between, I try to keep it out of my thoughts
