Intro: G  Am  Em  C  D

     G                                           Am
It's times like these where I lose myself in the stories 
                            Em
my old man would tell about life, true love, and war,
    C                     D
the kind of war where you beat yourself.
       G
'Cause now I've got this stomach pain, 
    Am                                              Em
the kind of pain that gets worse when the rain hits hard,
                    C                     D 
like my fist when I try to explain to the wall 


              G       G -Strum just G, B and E-
this mess I'm in.
         G
See, I'm tired now and my mind won't quit 
        Am
since I got the news that you were sick.
             Em
I thought of life, of time and death.
C               D
If I could only use my breathe,
    G
I'd breathe my life into your lungs.
     Am                                              Em
With love and strength, I have faith I will lift you up.

It's a lesson learned.


   C             D                C
As we move on, I still need your around.
       G        D
I'd be lost without you.
                     C         G           D 
I'm not sure I could face this world on my own.
                  C  G  D
No, I don't wanna go on alone.
              C  G  D
I don't wanna go on alone.
              C   G   D
I don't wanna go.


    G
I'm terrified that this fear exists,
        Am                                            Em
and I'm scared I'll come to terms with it, but that's life.

You are what you leave,
         C                 D
like the simple lessons my dad taught me.
  G                                Am
I know we all grow old and die and make our place in another life.
    Em                              C
I'm glad that there's still time to let you know,


  D                C
I still need your around.
       G        D
I'd be lost without you.
                     C         G           D 
I'm not sure I could face this world on my own.
                  C  G  D
No, I don't wanna go on alone.
              C  G  D
I don't wanna go on alone.
              C   G   D
I don't wanna go.

Interlude -x2-: G  Am  Em  C  D

G
   So live it up, live it up.
Am    
   'Cause you'll never know, never know.
Em                C                D                G
   Time is always running, it will always guide you home.

   So live it up, live it up.


Am    
   'Cause you'll never know, never know.
Em                C                D                G
   Time is always running, it will always guide you home.

   So live it up, live it up.
Am    
   'Cause you'll never know, never know.
Em                C                D                        
   Time is always running, it will always guide you ...


   C  G  D
...go on alone.
              C  G  D
I don't wanna go on alone.
              C  G  D
I don't wanna go on alone.
              C  G   D
I don't wanna go on alone.
