Tuning: Standard

-Intro-

A C#m F D A E

-Verse I-

A       C#m            F# 

I get myself up every day

D          A                  E

To fight this "woe is me" demeanor

A            C#m              F# 

If things had gone another way

D             A               E

Now would my grass be any greener?

-Pre Chorus-

Bm          A               E

And as I'm struggling on my own

Bm        A               E

I have to think I'm not alone

-Chorus-

A                    F#

Give and take, we catch our breaks

D               E

We all learn to survive

A                

But don't look now

F#

said don't look now

D

Cuz here we are,

E

Living the best days of our lives

A        F#          D              E

These are the best days of our lives

-Verse II-

A      C#m            F#

I fly around the world to spend

D           A                    E

My nights with strangers and their lovers

A       C#m            F#

I notice happiness depends

D           A                    E

On if we share it with each other

-Pre Chorus-

Bm          A                  E

So when this craziness is through

Bm          A                  E

I'll spend my happiness with you

*Chorus*

-Bridge-

Bm         A                 E

As we're walking through the fire

Bm          A          E

Isn't it great to be alive?

*Chorus*

-Outro/Chorus-

A                          F#

Give and take, we catch our breaks

D                     E

We all learn to survive

A

Oh, but don't look now

F#

I said don't look now

D

Cause here we are,

E

Living the best days of our lives

A        F#           D          E

These are the best days of our lives

Notes:

The chorus should use the barred version of the (A) chord.

The general progression goes something like this:

    A          C#m           F#           D           A           E

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

e|  5          4             2            2           x           x

B|  5          5             2            3           2           x

G|  6          6             3            2           2           1

D|  7          6             4            x           2           2

A|  7          4             4            x           x           2

E|  5          4             2            x           x           x  

------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want, you can add a little lick after the E chord, harder to do on the

guitar than the piano.
