work out the chords. i have included the voice changes i use and will
shortly be uplaoding a cover of this song at www.youtube.com/user/lolololni

D                       D/F#
Where did we come from, Why are we here? 
G                      D     D/C#
Where do we go when we die?
Bm                Bm/A
What lies beyond, And what lay before?
   E/G#                A
Is anything certain in life?

           D                        D/F#
They say, "Life is too short", "The here and the now"
     G                     D      D/C#
And "You're only given one shot"
    B5                        Bm/A
But could there be more, Have I lived before,
   E/G#                         Asus4    A
Or could this be all that we've got?

G          A                  D       D/C#      Bm
If I die tomorrow, I'd be all right because I believe
                 G         Em             D
That after we're gone, The spirit carries on

  D                        D/F#
I used to be frightened of dying
  G                           D     D/C#
I used to think death was the end
    Bm                       Bm/A
But that was before, I'm not scared anymore
  E/G#                       A
I know that my soul will transcend

  D                      D/F#
I may never find all the answers
  G                    D     D/C#
I may never understand why
  Bm                     Bm/A
I may never prove what I know to be true
      E                         A
But I know that I still have to try

G            A                D       D/C#      Bm
If I die tomorrow, I'd be all right because I believe
                 G         A     (ORGAN)  D     C/D
That after we're gone, The spirit carries on

Em                 D#                        D                    E
Move on, be brave, Don't weep at my grave, because I am no longer here
    G                     Em                Bm
But please never let your memory of me disappear

Safe in the light that surrounds me
G                        D    D/C#
Free of the fear and the pain
    Bm                    Bm/A
The question in mind, Has helped me to find
    E/G#                A
The meaning in my life again

   D               D/C#

At peace with the girl in my dreams

And now that I'm here, it's perfectly clear

I found out what all of this means

G          A                  D       D/C#      Bm    Bm/A
If I die tomorrow, I'd be all right because I believe
