C C Well!
D G CDidn't you look sharp in your boots when you met me on the path? Oh

Em G*Stealing bits of wisdom from the shelf
Em C DTurned prisons into prisms on the self. Oh Oh
D G CAnd what do they know about the spring time of me and you? Ooh
D G CBorn in the midst of the long hot summer we lived through. Ooh
Em G*Did they see you run for every rhyme?
Em C DDid 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 E5Oh oh oh Ah ah ah
D5 E5Oh oh oh Ah ah ah etc.

Em G*Adding our own wisdom to the shelf
Em C DStealing bits of paper, we had health. Oh Oh
D G CWorking away did we miss the passing of the time? Oh
D G CIn your own flame you can wither, but your passions still outshine. Oh
Em G*Did you read the writing on the wall?
Em C DProphesying 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 E5Oh oh oh Ah ah ah
D5 E5Oh oh oh Ah ah ah etc.
Em G*But hidden in the writing on the wall
Em CMany are the beauties of the fall.
