[Verse 1]

A                                  E
I took a trip but I was not on a vacation
  A                                           E
I sat face to face with my love but I didn't see him
   B
Staring out at the Grand Canyon
         A                                      E
Oh but I was just so busy planning the places I go
    A                                                  E
We race out the door of our youth and wave back to our mothers
    A                                                E
We take on the world and stop taking them telephone calls
    B                                               A
We see them again every Christmas till there's not another
                  E
Oh, I wish I had known

[Chorus]
B     
Birds don't know that they're singing
F#m
Fish don't know that they're swimming
B
No one knows the beginning
C#m                         A   E
We don't know that we're living...
                A
Oh, that we're living

[Verse 2]
A                                                E
I wish I could see my life like it looks in the pictures
    A                                              E
The sky really is that blue and the grass is that green
   B                                  A
I had everything that I wanted, now I wanna go back
                                  E
'Cause it was right there when I wasn't

[Chorus]
B     
Birds don't know that they're singing
F#m
Fish don't know that they're swimming
B
No one knows the beginning
C#m                         
We don't know that we're living
            A
Oh, that we're living

[Chorus]
B     
Birds don't know that they're singing
F#m
Fish don't know that they're swimming
    B
Oh, no one knows the beginning
C#m                       A
We don't know that we're living

    B 
No, we forget that we're spinning
 F#m
Hold onto what you're giving
       B
'Cause no one knows when it's ending
C#m                             E
We don't know that we're living....
                 A
Oh, that we're living
We don't know
          E
We don't know we're living
                 A
Oh, that we're living
