When I Died

	  		

When I Die 
The Thermals 

    D#m           G#m      C#m         F# 
The Earth was too hot, The air was too thin 
   D#m        G#m        C#m         F# 
I took off my clothes, I took off my skin 
  D#m            G#m          C#m         F#            E 
I crawled to the sea that was calling for me so I could swim... 
                        F# 
Yeah, so I could swim! 


B  F#  E  F#  x2 

B  C#m  B  F# 


     B                F#    E                   F# 
I was sick of the land, I was sick from the heat, 
     B             F#         E                  F# 
I was sick of the sun and the sky and the trees, 
B                   C#m 
Over the air that I needed to breathe 
       F# 
When I held with my hands, when I walked on my feet 
   B                 F#   E              F# 
I took off my clothes, I took off my skin 
       B            F#         E                  F# 
Started shedding my arms to start getting my fins 
B                           C#m                     B 
Crawled to the sea that was calling for me so I could swim,  
              F# 
Swim the ocean wide 
      G#m         C#m        F# 
I was only just past the low tide 


       B     E 
When I died 
       B     E 
When I died 
             B 
Yeah, when I died 
            C# 
My head did swell 
             B 
I said to myself 
             F# 
Nature sure took her sweet time 
      G#m     C#m       F# 
I was already losing my spine 


      B             F#         E            F# 
I was sick with horror when my curtain fell 
        B                F#     E              F# 
It's the end of the story I was certain to tell 
B                            C#m 
Watching their faces as they pulled me from the sea 
F# 
Feeling for the place I thought my gills would be 
B                 F# E           F# 
Busted and wrecked, justly infected 
   B        F#   E    F# 
My body beyond repair 
         B                    C#m 
Had no objection, sir, my only questions were 
F# 
Where do I go and will I know when I'm there? 
      G#m             C#m            F# 
But I really couldn't say that I cared 


       B     E 
When I died 
       B     E 
When I died 
             B 
Yeah, when I died 
            C# 
My head did swell 
             B 
I said to myself 
             F# 
Nature sure took her sweet time 
      E     
I was already losing 
         D#m     G#m  C#m  F#  D#m  G#m 
Yeah, my spine! 

       C#m     F#        D#m   G#m  C#m  F# 
(I was already losing my spine 
            D#m  G#m  C#m          F# 
If life was short, at least it was short) 

    D#m           G#m      C#m         F# 
The Earth was too hot, The air was too thin 
   D#m        G#m        C#m         F# 
I took off my clothes, I took off my skin 
  D#m            G#m          C#m         F#            E 
I crawled to the sea that was calling for me so I could swim... 
                        F# 
Yeah, so I could swim! 


B  F#  E  F#  x2 
B  C#m  B  F# 


       B     E 
When I died 
       B     E 
When I died 
             B 
Yeah, when I died 
            C# 
My head did swell 
             B 
I said to myself 
             F# 
Nature sure took her sweet time 
      E     
I was already losing 
     F#  B 
Yeah, my spine!
