Am (/b) c (6)
Oh, for the sake of momentum
Dm f e7
IЂ™ve allowed my fears to get larger than life
Am (/b) c6
And itЂ™s brought me to my current agendum
Dm f e7
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive
F g c dm7
And I know life is getting shorter
F g c d7
I canЂ™t bring myself to set the scene
F g c dm7
Even when itЂ™s approaching torture
F g f -- c/e -- dm7 -- c
IЂ™ve got my routine
Oh, for the sake of momentum am /b c6
Even though I agree with that stuff about seizing the day dm f e7
But I hate to think of effort expended am /b c6
All those minutes and days and hours dm I have frittered away. f e7
And I know life is getting shorter f g c dm7
I canЂ™t bring myself to set the scene f g c d7
Even when itЂ™s approaching torture f g c dm7
IЂ™ve got my routine f g f c/e dm7 c Bridge 1:
Bbm /c db f7
But I canЂ™t confront the doubts I have
Bbm /c db f7
I canЂ™t admit that maybe the past was bad
Am /b c6 c6/d
And so, for the sake of momentum
IЂ™m condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

When I canЂ™t confront the doubts I have bbm /c db f7
I canЂ™t admit that maybe the past was bad bbm /c db f7
And so, for the sake of momentum am /b c6 c6/d
IЂ™m condemning the future to death e7
So it can match the past. am /b c6 dm Coda: e7 am
