Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Speed Of Life  David Bowie

Intro - D - G - D - Em - D/F# - G 

(Verse 1)
[D]We drove all night to get to Corpus Ch[G]risti
My pa[D]rents slept right through
They never mi[G]ssed me
[Em7]We were far from sleepin'
When the t[G]ruth began to creep in
That[Em7] we weren't goin' home anytime s[G]oo[-]n  [A]

(Verse 2)
The [D]mornin' light sure took us by su[G]rprise
We g[D]rabbed our clothes
Watched a beautiful sun[G]rise
[Em7]We were one together
And we must have ta[G]lked forever
And it [Em7]was then and there I reali[G]zed [A]  that
(Chorus)
[D]I don't want to wait even o[G]ne more night
It's h[D]ard to slow it down when it f[G]eels so right
[D]Knees buckled, w[G]hite knuckled
We're [Em7]holdin' on tight (holdin' on tight)
(We're) t[G]ravelin' at t[A]wice the speed of l[D]ife
(Yea, yea, yeah yeah)
[G](Yea, yea, yeah yeah)
[D](Yea, yea, [Em]yea[-]h [D/F#]yeah [-]ye[G]ah)
(Verse 3)

We worked our way through college waitin' tables

Bought a little white house with a picket fence and cable

I asked if he was ready

To become a Mom and Daddy

And then I found my answer in his eyes

And he said,
(Chorus)
[D]I don't want to wait even o[G]ne more night
It's h[D]ard to slow it down when it f[G]eels so right
[D]Knees buckled, w[G]hite knuckled
We're [Em7]holdin' on tight (holdin' on tight)
(We're) t[G]ravelin' at t[A]wice the speed of li[D]fe
(Bridge)
Now, our o[C]ldest girl is almost grown
She's g[G]ot a boyfriend of her own
I he[Em7]ard her sneakin' out with him last ni[A4]ght[A]
And if s[G]he's anything like me
She's des[D]perate to be wild and free
We know n[G]ow it's just a matter of t[A4]ime[A]
'Til she says...
(Chorus)
[D]I don't want to wait even o[G]ne more night
      [D]                             [E5] [F#5] [G5] [-] [A5]
