Mandy Moore - When Will My Life Begin chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams

This song uses a lot of open notes. The author did not likely know what the 
chords were. I used the technical name for the chords (in an effort to 
promote the right names). Please don't try to correct me if you don't know 
the difference between a 9th or a 2nd... or a 4th or a sus. Music Theory... 
learn it or stop pretending you know it. 

I learned this for my wife who wanted to learn the right way to play it. I'm 
not a fan of the movie (haven't seen it), or mandy moore (she ruined 
Switchfoot). But other than that, you can write me at 
(please be constructive with criticism).

Intro: Bsus (Bass plays octaves)

Bsus                    E
7 AM, the usual morning lineup
Bsus                                               E
Start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean
C                                       G
Polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up
       Bsus  Bsus/A  G#m13        F#m11  Bsus
Sweep again, and by then it's like 7:15

            E      A
And so I'll read a book
        F#m     E
Or maybe two or three
           C#m7    F#m             A     E
I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery
            C#m7     F#m
I'll play guitar and knit
             A G#m13 C#m7
And cook and basically
            F#m11        Bsus  E             (intro): Bsus
Just wonder when will my life begin?

Bsus                                        E
Then after lunch it's puzzles and darts and baking
Bsus                             E
Paper mache, a bit of ballet and chess
C                               G
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle making
          Bsus    Bsus/A  G#m13         F#m11
Then I'll stretch, maybe sketch, take a climb
Sew a dress!

         E          A
And I'll reread the books
          F#m     E
If I have time to spare
               C#m7       F#m
I'll paint the walls some more
                 A        E
I'm sure there's room somewhere
              C#m7      F#m
And then I'll brush and brush
              A    G#m13  C#m7
and brush and brush my hair
             F#m             A  G#m13  Cm#7
Stuck in the same place I've always been

              F#m           G#m13
And I'll keep wanderin' and wanderin'
    A             G#m13  C#m7
And wanderin' and wonderin'
F#m          Bsus E
When will my life begin?

E5           A5/E
And tomorrow night
E5           A5/E
Lights will appear
E5             A5/E     E5            A5  B
Just like they do on my birthday each year
C#m7       F#m11
What is it like
Bsus                 E7
Out there where they glow?
A            G#m13
Now that I'm older
Mother might just
Let me go...
