............

[Verse 1]
    F                      C
Oh Death, oh Death, I was just getting dressed

The place is a mess

I was hoping you'd forget
           Gm                          Bbm                  F
But I can feel you in my chest, I can feel you in my chest....

[Verse 2]
    F
Oh yes, oh yes
  C   
Death never rests
                           
I can see you've done your best
                                   Gm
The problem is just this, it's too late for regrets
Bbm              F
I am here to collect

[Chorus]
            Bb       C
It takes a lifetime to find
   F                       Bb  
A life like the life you had in mind
             Bb      C   
It takes a lifetime to find
   F                          Bb  
A life like the life you had in mind
       C    
Now you're mine

[Interlude]

[Verse 3]
    F                               C     
Oh Death, I confess, I should have known what to expect

But you're so hard to accept

Last time I checked
Gm
I was neck and neck
    Bbm                F
As healthy as the next..

[Verse 4]
    F                              C  
Oh yes, you were blessed, blessed in the past tense

But it's too late now
                                 Gm
To make it make sense, it's too late to pretend
      Bbm            F
This day won't ever end

[Chorus]
            Bb        C
It takes a lifetime to find
   F                          Bb 
A life like the life you had in mind
            Bb       C  
It takes a lifetime to find
   F                          Bb
A life like the life you had in mind
            C
And now you're mine

[Bridge]
      F                            C
So alright, today's the day and tonight is the night

There's no reason, there's no rhyme, just time to go, goodbye
    Gm                    Bbm               F
But why can't you try to ease what's on my poor mind?

[Verse 5]
    F
Oh Jeff, don't obsess
          C 
It's the best that I can do
                                   
To help you see the light and help the light to see you
     Gm              
It's true, there was a truth
         Bbm                     F
That was you and only you ever knew
[Chorus]
            Bb       C
It takes a lifetime to find
     F                          Bb
The life like the life you had in mind
            Bb        C 
It takes a lifetime to find
      F                         Bb
The life like the life you had in mind
            Bbm       C 
It takes a lifetime to find
     F                           Bb
The life like the life you had in mind
       C    
Now you're mine
