D       C            Am     Em              G
Live or die before I get it done will you decide?
D       C                   Am   Em                 G
Take my words and turn them into signs they will survive
          D    C        Am Em            G
because a long time ago I  knew not to deprive
     D        C              Am   Em                  G
It's safe out there now your everywhere just like the sky
    D     C                     Am    Em                G
And you I love you, you are the lucid dream you are the ride
             D    C                  Am   Em                G
And when you hear this you know it's your jam it's your goodbye


G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                        Cmaj7                 Em
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                      Cmaj7               Em
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong


D      C                  Am      Em                 G
We all cross when we were feeling lost it's just the time
      D     C               Am    Em            G
Could terry cry the day her lover died she recognized
            D    C             Am   Em              G
Because you gave her a life of real love it's no surprise
    D          C            Am        Em               G
The nights are long but the years are short when your alive
D        C                Am  Em            G
Way back when we’ll never be again it was a time,
           D   C              Am  Em              G
It's gonna get you; so glad I met you to walk the line


G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                        Cmaj7                 Em
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                      Cmaj7               Em
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong


G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                        Cmaj7                 Em
and when the drummer drums it's gonna play my song to carry me along
G                        Cmaj7                     Em
Like I said you know I'm almost dead, you know I'm almost gone
             G                      Cmaj7               Em
and when the boatman comes to ferry me away to where we all belong


G                        Cmaj7                Em
Let me live so when it's time to die even the reaper cries
G                       Cmaj7                Em
Let me die so when it's time to live another sun will rise


       G         Cmaj7      Em
I said Yeah  YeahYeah   YeahYeah
       G         Cmaj7      Em

G                        Cmaj7                     Em
