C C7 F Fmin

When I was a baby
I had no care in the world
Bb F Bb F C
But now, I'm a man and troubles fill my head
C F Bb C
When I was five, it was good to be alive.
Bb F Bb F Bb
But now I'm a man I wish that I were dead.
D Bb F Fadd4 F (last two quickly)
My how time rushes by.
Eb F Fadd4 F
The moment you're born you start to die
D Bb F
'cause time waits for no man.
And your lifespan is over before it began.
Bb Bb7 Eb
When I sit here at my window
My life comes back to me.
It's been so long since the good days.
It's been so long.
