ALIVE

    A       E      A     E


                        A
    Maybe you talk too high, man. 

E                      A
    Maybe I talk too slow. 

E                            C#m
    But you've got to live a little bit faster 

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


    
    E    A



E                             A
    I ain't lost and I ain't searching,

E                                 A
    but then you know me very well. 

E               B/D#
    And I can't change the wind 

        C#m
    and make it blow the other way. 

F#m            A                E
    I'm a fool   and I can tell... 


    

                  F#                B
    ... that I'm alive and that's all, 

               F#                          B
    that I can get up just as fast as I fall.

              F#                             B
    And I can walk and run but I'll never crawl.

               F#                         B
    And in the end it doesn't matter at all. 


    

              E                A
    I don't know about the peo  ple 

                B              A
    that I read  about in books.

                  E                  A
    And the kings   and queens around  my room 

           B                       A
    with their quiet and dirty looks. 


    

           E                A             B
    I know   I should be go  ing somewhere, 

                       A
    I just can't arrive. 

               E                A
    There's a reason for believ  ing 

               E
    that I've never been alive.

E     A
    Alive.
