[Intro]
Am   C   F   C  2x


[Verse]
Am           C             F         C
Sometimes we fall down and can't get back up
Am           C        F         C
we're hiding behind skin that's too tough
Am          C           F        C
how come we don’t say I love you enough
Am                 C  F            C
Till it's too late,   it's not too late


[Verse]
Am             C            F         C
Our hearts are hungry for a food that won't come
Am       C      F          C
we could make a feast from these crumbs
Am            C                F         C
and we're all staring down the barrel of a gun
Am                        C
so if your life flashes before you
               F                 C
what would you wish you would've done


[Chorus]

Yeah we gotta start
Am                        C
Lookin at the hand of the time we've been given here
F                         C
this is all we got and we gotta start pickin it
Am                       C
every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
F                     C
Cotta live like we're dying
            Am     C
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day to
F                     C
turn it all around or throw it all away
Am
we gotta tell 'em that we love 'em
         C
while we got the chance to say
      F               C
gotta live like we're dying


[Interlude]
Am  C  F  C


[Verse]
(Am)        (C)        (F)       (C)
And if your plane fell out of the skies
Am        C             F         C
who would you call with your last goodbyes
Am           C              F            C
should be so careful who we live out our lives
Am                  C
so when we long for absolution
F                      C
there'll no one on the line


[Chorus]

Yeah we gotta start
Am                        C
Lookin at the hand of the time we've been given here
F                         C
this is all we got and we gotta start pickin it
Am                       C
every second counts on a clock that's tickin'
F                     C
Cotta live like we're dying
            Am     C
We only got 86 400 seconds in a day to
F                     C
turn it all around or throw it all away

while we got the chance to say

Like we're dying oh like we're dying

[Bridge]
Am                                   C
We never know a good thing till it's gone
                F                     C
you never see a crash until it's head on
                 Am                    C
all those people right when we're dead wrong
                 F                    C
you never know a good thing till it's gone
