[Chorus]
       C         G/B      Em
Look up, lean back, be strong
                        F
You didn't think you'd live this long
         C      G/B          Em
Be as one, hold on, steady stand
                    F
For as long as you think you can

[Verse 1]
C                     G/B
Old habits die for a couple of weeks
                                  Em
And then I start doing them again....
                                      F   
This sun is making me feel like I'm missing out on something
                        C
But if I went to your barbecue
                                       G/B
I'd feel uncomfortable and not be sure what to say anyway
                Em
It's like when I go to your birthday
                          F
Drinks to congratulate you being the age I already thought you were
     C
Or not, I don't know...
        G/B                            Em
It's a miracle, I've remembered at all.....

When I'm buried in the ground
        F   
I won't be able to make your birthday drinks
                     C 
But I will still feel guilty
                  G/B  
You see, when the air warms up like this
                        Em  
It brings every single memory of you back
                         F 
And it makes me so sick, I can't breathe
       C                              G/B 
Except I am still breathing, aren't I?....
     Em                               F 
Sometimes I think that's the problem.....

[Chorus]
           C         G/B     Em 
So look up, lean back, be strong
                        F  
You didn't think you'd live this long
         C        G/B        Em  
Be as one, hold on, steady stand
                    F   
For as long as you think you can

[Verse 2]
C  
Be very careful out there
G/B  
Stop trying to have so many friends
Em                                           F   
Don't be intimidated by all the babies they have
                                             C   
Don't be embarrassed that all you've had is fun
             G/B  
Prioritise pleasure
                  Em   
Don't send those long paragraph texts
          F   
Stop it, don't
C  
Getting married isn't the biggest day of your life
G/B                                       Em
All the days that you get to have are big....
                                        F   
Be wary of the favours that they do for you
C                                            G/B 
..They'll tell you I'm wrong, they'll tell you (I do this all the time)
Em                                            F 
..They'll tell you I'm wrong, they'll tell you (I do this all the time)

[Chorus]
          C          G/B     Em
So look up, lean back, be strong
                        F   
You didn't think you'd live this long
         C        G/B        Em  
Be as one, hold on, steady stand
                     F    
For as long as you think you can

[Verse 3]
C                                            G/B  
All you need to do, darling, is fit in that little dress of yours
                        Em    
If you weren't doing this you'd be working in McDonald's
             F   
So try and cheer up, I'm not sure
        C     
You're moving around too much, you need to stand still
G/B  
Be more like Mairead, shh
Em  
Stop showing off
          F           
You're a good girl
          
You're a good, tall girl 
          C               G/B   Em    F  
You're a good, sturdy girl...............
C      
One day I would love to tell you
        G/B  
How the best night of your life
                 Em             F  
Was the absolute worst of mine......

[Chorus]
          C          G/B     Em
So look up, lean back, be strong
                        F   
You didn't think you'd live this long
         C        G/B        Em  
Be as one, hold on, steady stand
                     F    
For as long as you think you can

[Verse 4]
C  
Now and again you make complete sense
    G/B                                                Em   
But most of the time I'm sat here feeling stupid for trying
                         F   
My hunger times, my impatience equals the problem
C   
You're beautiful and I want the best for you
G/B                                 Em  
But I also hope you fail without me.....
   F   
It was really rather miserable trying to love you

[Outro]
C                G/B              Em               F  
...I'll take care, I'll read again, I'll sing again, I will
C                G/B              Em               F 
...I'll take care, I'll read again, I'll sing again, I will
C 
We laid there in the darkness and you were asleep
G/B                                            Em          F    
And I wasn't checking my phone for a moment and I felt—........
