D C Am Em G

Live or die before I get it done will you decide?

D C Am Em G

Take my words and turn them into signs they will survive

D C Am Em G

because a long time ago I knew not to deprive

D C Am Em G

It's safe out there now your everywhere just like the sky

D C Am Em G

And you I love you, you are the lucid dream you are the ride

D C Am Em G

And when you hear this you know it's your jam it's your goodbye

 

 

G Cmaj7 Em

Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone

G Cmaj7 Em

and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along

G Cmaj7 Em

Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone

G Cmaj7 Em

and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong

 

 

D C Am Em G

We all cross when we were feeling lost it's just the time

D C Am Em G

Could terry cry the day her lover died she recognized

D C Am Em G

Because you gave her a life of real love it's no surprise

D C Am Em G

The nights are long but the years are short when your alive

D C Am Em G

Way back when we’ll never be again it was a time,

D C Am Em G

It's gonna get you; so glad I met you to walk the line

 

 

G Cmaj7 Em

Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone

G Cmaj7 Em

and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along

G Cmaj7 Em

Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone

G Cmaj7 Em

and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong

G Cmaj7 Em

Let me live so when it's time to die even the reaper cries

G Cmaj7 Em

Let me die so when it's time to live another sun will rise

 

 

G Cmaj7 Em

I said Yeah YeahYeah YeahYeah

G Cmaj7 Em

I said Yeah YeahYeah YeahYeah (cont. a while, fading)
