       Your life is         in your     hands 
G#7                      D                                          
       It's up to you to     see the writing's 
E7       A7sus4       D          theme 2

G#7                       D

   Strange we hold      on to     things that have no grace or       power
       D                  Em7b5                    D               Bb7

     A7                   D                    Bm7

E7        A7sus4      D          theme 2                                           
     on          the     wall 

G                      D                                          
   The music's in the      air, mothers
Gm/E                 Gm6/E             D        theme 2                             
       You may have         heard it      call 
G#7                        D                                        
       To you that you may     see the writing's

And      all the time you     thought it would       last
     A7                             D             Bb7 /                 
Your      life, your friends would     always be
