C   C
       Well!

  D                            G                            C
Didn't you look sharp in your boots when you met me on the path? Oh
 D                       G                     C
Two tone to downtown Beirut but only half way back. Oh
Em                                 G*
Stealing bits of wisdom from the shelf
Em                                  C      D
Turned prisons into prisms on the self. Oh Oh


 D                                G                    C
And what do they know about the spring time of me and you? Ooh
 D                        G                          C
Born in the midst of the long hot summer we lived through. Ooh
 Em                              G*
Did they see you run for every rhyme?
 Em                             C      D
Did we run for running out of time? Oh Oh


Chorus:
When even heroes have to die
No one lives forever, love
And no one's wise to try

D5             E5
Oh oh oh       Ah ah ah
D5             E5
Oh oh oh       Ah ah ah     etc.

Play D5 / E5 through the solo


 Em                            G*
Adding our own wisdom to the shelf
 Em                              C        D
Stealing bits of paper, we had health. Oh Oh

 D                   G                        C
Working away did we miss the passing of the time? Oh
 D                         G                                   C
In your own flame you can wither, but your passions still outshine. Oh
 Em                              G*
Did you read the writing on the wall?
 Em                         C      D
Prophesying a doom upon us all. Oh Oh


Chorus:
That even heroes have to die
No one lives forever, love
And no one's wise to try


D5             E5
Oh oh oh       Ah ah ah
D5             E5
Oh oh oh       Ah ah ah     etc.


 Em                               G*
But hidden in the writing on the wall
 Em                           C
Many are the beauties of the fall.
