D
 First thing we'd climb a tree and maybe then we'd talk
D
 Or sit silently and listen to our thoughts
Csus2                     D
 With illusions of someday casting a golden light
Csus2               D
 No dress rehearsal, this is our life

D                                    Csus2                D
 And that's where the hornet stung me and I had a feverish dream
                 Csus2                          D
With revenge and doubt, tonight we smoke them out

A
 You are ahead by a century (this is our life)
G
 You are ahead by a century (this is our life)
A                            G
 You are ahead by a century

D
 Stare in the morning shroud and then the day began
D
 I tilted your cloud, you tilted my hand
Csus2                   D
 Rain falls in real time and rain fell through the night
Csus2               D
 No dress rehearsal, this is our life

D                                   Csus2               D
 But that's when the hornet stung me and I had a serious dream
                 Csus2                          D
With revenge and doubt, tonight we smoke them out

A
 You are ahead by a century (this is our life)
G
 You are ahead by a century (this is our life)
A                            G
 You are ahead by a century
A
 You are ahead by a century (this is our life)
G
 You are ahead by a century (this is our life)
A                            G
 You are ahead by a century
                        D
And disappointing you's getting me down
