Lyrics and Chords

The song picked up by:   Alan Robinson
Intro:
F#m | F#m | A | Asus4 A Asus2 A | E | E | F#m | F#m
{{*}}
Verse 1:
 F#m
Ticking away the moments
                A       Asus4 A Asus2 A
That make up a dull day
  E                                         F#m
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
{{*}}
 F#m
Kicking around on a piece
                   A        Asus4 A Asus2 A
Of ground in your home town
 E                                                F#m
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
{{*}}
Chorus:
 Dmaj7
Tired of lying in the sunshine
  Amaj7
Staying home to watch the rain
 Dmaj7
You are young and life is long and
  Amaj7
There is time to kill today
{{*}}
Dmaj7
  And then one day you find
C#m7
  Ten years have got behind you
 Bm
No one told you when to run,
E
  You missed the starting gun
{{*}}
[Instrumental] = [Intro] (x2)
{{*}}
Verse 2:
         F#m
And you run and you run to catch up with
                  A      Asus4 A Asus2 A
The sun but it's sinking
 E                                    F#m
Racing around to come up behind you again
{{*}}
     F#m
The sun is the same in a relative
                A     Asus4 A Asus2 A
Way, but you're older
  E                                      F#m
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
{{*}}
Chorus:
Dmaj7
Every year is getting shorter,
 Amaj7
Never seem to find the time
  Dmaj7
Plans that either come to naught or
 Amaj7
Half a page of scribbled lines
{{*}}
 Dmaj7
Hanging on in quiet
      C#m7
Desperation is the English way
     Bm                D
The time is gone, the song is over,
  Dm                   F          Em ->
Thought I'd something more to say
