Intro: Eb Ab Bb Ab

Eb 
In my mind
                 Ab 
In a future five years from now
     Bb
I'm 120 pounds
      Ab
And I never get hungover
         Eb                       Ab
Because I will be the picture of discipline
                   Bb
Never minding what state I'm in
       Ab
And be someone I admire
         Bb                                 Ab
And it's funny how I imagined that I would be that person now
       Bb
But it does not seem to have happened
           Ab                     Bb
Maybe I've just forgotten how, to see
             Ab                                     Eb
That I'm not exactly the person that I thought I'd be


         Eb
And in my mind
               Ab
In the faraway here and now
                    Bb
I've become in control somehow
      Ab
And I never lose my wallet
        Eb                        Ab
Because I will be the picture of discipline
                 Bb
Never xxxxing up anything
              Ab
And I'll be a good defensive driver
         Bb                                 Ab
And it's funny how I imagined that I would be that person now
       Bb
But it does not seem to have happened
           Ab                     Bb
Maybe I've just forgotten how, to see
          Ab                                       Eb
That I'll never be the person that I thought I'd be


         Eb
And in my mind
         Ab
When I'm old, I am beautiful
                    Bb
Planting tulips and vegetables
             Ab
Which I will mindfully watch over --
             Eb
Not like me, now
                 Ab
I'm so busy with everything
                     Bb
That I don't look at anything
                 Ab               
But I'm sure I'll look when I am older
         Bb                                Ab
And it's funny how I imagine that I could be that person now
                      Bb                                         Ab
But that's not what I want, if that's what I wanted then I'd be giving up somehow
               Bb                             Ab                             Eb
How strange to see ---- that I don't want to be the person that I want to be


          Eb
And in my mind
             Ab
I imagine so many things
                          Bb
Things that aren't really happening
              Ab                                                                      
And when they put me in the ground, 
                        Eb                       Ab
I'll start pounding the lid,  Saying "I haven't finished yet –
                 Bb
I still have a tattoo to get
               Ab
That says 'I'm living in the moment'."
         Bb                                 Ab
And it's funny how I imagined that I could win this winless fight
             Bb                                   Ab
But maybe it isn't all that funny that I've been fighting all my life
            Bb                             Ab
But maybe I have to think it's funny if I wanna live before I die
              Bb                              Ab
And maybe it's funniest of all to think I'll die before I actually see
          Ab                                  Eb
That I am exactly the person that I want to be

Here are some strumming patterns that work for me:

D- DUD
Or
D DUD D D D

TwinkleToestheBerserker

Omg so much thank you for this!!!!!

M.K

Hey…does anybody know the strumming pattern to this song? With my usual one it doesn’t sound that good…please help xx

Alex

D D U D U D

Tani

I agree with Mortimara, it is a bit easier for some people to sing it if it’s +2.

Playing the E chord might be a bit tricky for some people (especially beginners, like me :3) though, so you could also just pop a capo onto the second fret of the ukulele instead so you don’t have to play that E chord.
Excuse me if it’s a little obvious, just thought I’d share :)

Also, it’s really easy to play the song in +5 too :D

I love Amanda Palmer, and I’m so glad her songs are on here. This is one of my favorites, and I can’t wait to play it.

Mortimara

If you’re a higher pitch, +2 works really well!
This is an amazing translation of an awesome song from LiS :D!

Lis (and Pricefield) is my heart and soul

I love this song :)))) It’s beautiful, much like the entire Life is Strange soundtrack. I wish I could thank them for all of the life-changing music they introduced me too, as well as the wonderful impact LiS had on my life.
Also, Amanda Palmer, you’re wonderful and so is your song.

hopalongg

I heard this song because of Life is Strange but I already loved Amanda Palmer and when I really sat down and listened to it with the lyrics open it kind of made me cry it’s such a lovely song.

PricefieldFTW

Here for LiS… :3

killjoy

Am I the only one who was brought here by Life is Strange? Lol x

I think it sounds nice to add G, C, D between the verse an chorus

No

Almost every other comment on here mentions Life Is Strange so yeah, I think you’re the only one.

Chloe

Oh my goodness I didn’t think this would be here!! I love Life is Strange a lot it changed my life and I love this song so much. Thanks for putting this one up!! :)
