Intro: Gb B Ebm Db 2x

Verse 1
Gb                         B
Woke up in London yesterday
                                      Ebm
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
                        
Don't really know how I got here
Db                             Gb
I got some pictures on my phone
                                     B
New names and numbers that I don't know
                               Ebm
Address to places like Abbey Road
                                     Db
Day turns to night, night turns to live a we want

We're young enough to say

Chorus
Gb                       B
oh, this is gotta be a good life
                    Ebm
This is gotta be a good life
                        Db
This could really be a good life good life
    Gb                         B
say oh this feeling that you cant find
                Ebm
This city is a fine life 
                        Db

Verse 2
Gb                                  B
To my friends in New York, I say hello
                               Ebm
My friends in l.a. they don't know
                                              Db
Where I've been for the past few years or so

Paris to China to Col-or-ado
Gb                                         B
Sometimes there's airplanes I can't jump out
                                           Ebm
Sometimes there's bullxxxx that don't work now
                              Db
We all got our stories but please tell me-e-e-e

What there is to complain about

Bridge
Gb                         B
When you're happy like a fool
                 Ebm
Let it take you over
                   Db
When everything is out
 
You gotta take it in

Chorus
Gb                       B

                    Ebm

This could really be a good life good life
    Gb                         B
say oh this feeling that you cant find
                Ebm

This could really be a good life, good good life
Gb   B   Ebm    Db

Bridge - actually only drums -
         Gb
Hopelessly
I feel like there might be something that I'll miss
         Gb
Hopelessly
I feel like the window closes oh so quick
         Gb
Hopelessly
I'm taking a mental picture of you now
              Gb
'Cuz hopelessly
The hope is we have so much to feel good about
