1.       Maybe you talk too high, man,

C                              F

    maybe I talk too slow,

C                             Em    Am

    but you've got to live a little bit faster 

D                                  F                        C     - F

    'cause you've got a little less time to go. 

 

     C                                    F

2.      I ain't lost and I ain't searching,

C                                                F

    but then you know me very well. 

C                      Em                           Am

    And I can't change the wind and make it blow the other way,

D            F                   C

    I'm a fool and I can tell ...

 

                 D                   G                    D                                 G

That I'm alive and that's all, that I can get up just as fast as I fall.

                   D                                       G

And I can walk and run but I'll never crawl,

                  D                                  G

and in the end it doesn't matter at all. 

              C                       F                 G                    F

I don't know about the people that I read about in books.

              C                              F

and the kings and queens around  my room 

           G                            F

with their quiet and dirty looks. 

             C                       F                         - G                       F

But I know I should be going somewhere,       I just can't arrive. 

                  C                  F                       C                       - F   C      - F

There's a reason for believing that I've never been alive.      Alive.
