When I was a baby

I had no care in the world

Bb F Bb F C

But now, I'm a man and troubles fill my head

C F Bb C

When I was five, it was good to be alive.

Bb F Bb F Bb

But now I'm a man I wish that I were dead.

D Bb F Fadd4 F (last two quickly)

My how time rushes by.

Eb F Fadd4 F

The moment you're born you start to die

D Bb F

'cause time waits for no man.

Eb F

And your lifespan is over before it began.

 

Bb Bb7 Eb

When I sit here at my window

Ebmin

My life comes back to me.
