||: am dm e7 :||

Verse 1:

Am (/b) c(6)
Oh, for the sake of momentum
Dm f e7
I've allowed my fears to get larger than life
Am (/b) c6
And it's brought me to my current agendum
Dm f e7
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive

Chorus:

F g c dm7
And I know life is getting shorter
F g c d7
I can't bring myself to set the scene
F g c dm7
Even when it's approaching torture
F g f -- c/e -- dm7 -- c
I've got my routine

Verse 2:

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

Chorus

And I know life is getting shorter f g c dm7
I can't bring myself to set the scene f g c d7
Even when it's approaching torture f g c dm7
I've got my routine f g f c/e dm7 c

Bridge 1:

Bbm /c db f7
But I can't confront the doubts I have
Bbm /c db f7
I can't admit that maybe the past was bad
Am /b c6 c6/d
And so, for the sake of momentum
E7
I'm condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

Bridge 2:

When I can't confront the doubts I have bbm /c db f7
I can't admit that maybe the past was bad bbm /c db f7
And so, for the sake of momentum am /b c6 c6/d
I'm condemning the future to death e7
So it can match the past. am /b c6 dm
