             Am     C      G                   Am    C    G
To be young,                      to be young
             Am               C                    G
Were just leaves, leaves, floating on down the stream
             Am                C             G
My job, my house, my car, my whole social scene
    Dm             G           C        Am
So high are the stakes, every move we make
          F           G             C
Sends us down, down, down in that stream


CHORUS:
              F            Am
Here in the only life I know
               G
Those summer days rush out like warm air from my lungs
                 F             Am
Thats just the way the story goes
           G
All Ive learned I still wish I didnt know
           G                                  Am    C     G    (x2)
All I didnt know, oh, when we were young


VERSE:
             Am          C                    G
When I was young I told myself Id keep my friends
           Am             C                   G
They were good and I was true, didnt need to end
                Dm           G
Oh how theyve risen they fallen
          C           Am
Like the sun circles round
             F           G           Am
Guess Ive done just as well as anyone
            F       G            C
Hard to accept it, Im just anyone
                  F             Am
But here in this only life I know
              G
Those summer days rush out like water from the lawn
               F               Am
Its just the way the story goes
            G
Stand in line now and talk about the day when we were young


INTERLUDE:
Am    C     G    (x4)
Dm  G  C  Am  
F   G    Am
F   G   

VERSE (like intro):
G
My conscious couldve sunbathed
Every day in my bright blue mind
Now its crowded with guilt and purpose and
        G      [ch]F#/G[/ch]     Em
I just want it all aligned
        G      [ch]F#/G[/ch]     Em
I just want it all aligned
        G      [ch]F#/G[/ch]     F/G
I just want it all aligned


             F     G     Am         G
Here in the only life I know
                 F         G      Am
Thats just the way the story goes
               G
And Ill be damned, Ill be damned


CHORUS: 
              F           Am
Here in the only life I know
             G
Not taking notice I dont know which way to go
               F             Am
Its just the way the story goes
           G
Ill be damned if Im to live it out alone
              F    G     Am
Here in the only life I know
             G
With any waste of time it hits so close to home
               F       G      Am
Its just the way the story goes
           G
Ill be damned if Im to live it out alone
I wont live it out alone
Wont live it out alone

VERSE:
            Am                C                      G
Were just leaves, leaves, floating on down the stream
            Am                 C              G
My job my house my clothes my whole social scene
    Dm              G
So high are the stakes
     Dm        G      C    Am
So high are the stakes, every move we make
          F           G             Am
Sends us down, down, down in that stream
         Dm       G         C          Am
And one day, one day, one bright clear day
     F                G          Am
I think we all might just disappear
          F              G           C         Am
Sink on down in that river cold and clear, my dear
               F       G         Am
On down like leaves in an icy stream
              F              G                 C
On down like leaves to the bottom of an icy stream
