    G                                   D
I wish that I could show you all I've seen
                B
I've been well educated in sadness 
      A
I've learned all I need
          G                             D
and I've felt total vain of being soft-spoken?
                  B
I've watched the hills all burning down
          A
felt the fields spill wide open
      G                                   D
and I used to watch the sun set on the bay
          B                           A
in vivid colors of depression in the light of fading day
       G                         D
and I try so goddamn hard to satisfy
                  B        A
It felt good in my eyes

                       G
I didn't wanna live a long life
                  D
if you'd understand
          B
you only see what you see
           A
it's so impossible to plan
           G
to live a long life
                             D
when the whole world holds you down
           B                      A
and every hope casts a shadow of doubt
                       G
I didn't wanna live a long life
                D          B
but I'll do my best
             A                      G
in any moment to get a little happiness
                                 D    B    A
'cause you get what you get against

            G                                 D
So make me worry and I'll pick it 'til it bleeds
            B                                  A
I carry it with me as I'm driving down these cracked and busted streets
            G                           D
where the kids standin' on the corner smokin'
               B
have all been locked have all been knocked
            A
and grown apart in East Oakland 
       G                                  D
and I know for them that my life must seem tame
                 B                     A
but everybodies heavy so worry it still weighs the same
       G                               D
and I feel the tension rise as I pass by
                        B    A
I can see it in their eyes

                           G
I don't expect to live a long life
                D
the way I understand
          B
you only feel what you feel
           A
it's so impossible to plan
            G
to live a long life
                          D
when the whole world holds you down
           B                      A
and every hope casts a shadow of doubt
                          G
I don't expect to live a long life
             D      B
Me, I do my best
             A                      G
in any moment to get a little happiness
                                  D     B    A
'cause you get what you get against

               G                          D
With all that said I can always say some more
            B                              A
I feel you bustin' off the hinges on this long locked up door
          G                       D
and the stakes never ever felt so high
              B
Wanna factor you into my dreams 
            A
I want you build me in your life
          G                                  D
I wanna know you've got my back through anything
                  B                      A
but you gotta be patient baby this is all new to me
          G                                 D
and I'm scared though you know I wouldn't lie
               B     A
look into my eyes

                          G
You make me wanna live a long life
                 D
if it's by your side
          B
I wanna know you want it to
        A
I want nothing to hide
           G
so live a long life
                 D
well that's the hope
          B                             A
but the future isn't yours or mine to know
                          G
you make me wanna live a long life
                 D     B
and I'll do my best
             A                           G
in any moment to give you a little happiness
                                  D     A     D
'cause you get who you get against




Enjoy!
