Waiting For My Real Life To Begin  Colin Hay

       Any minute [C]now,
*D G *C G/
my ship is coming in
    [Am7/]   I'[B/]ll keep checking the [C]ho[B]ri[Am7]zon   [G/]
Am7/ B/ C *D G *C
I'll stand on the bow, feel the waves come crashing
G/Am7/B/ C B Am7 G *Am7 G
Come crashing down, down, down, on me

Chorus:

G,Am7,B C G D
And you say, be still my love
      Open up your h[C]eart
      [C]Let the l[Am7]ight shine i[G]n  [G/Am7/B/C/]
      [C]But don't y[G]ou unders[D]tand
      I already have a p[C]lan
D C G *C G
I'm waiting, for my real life, to begin

   [G/D/C]C C/F#/G *C G/Am7/B

Verse:
      When I awoke to[C]day,
*D G *C G/
suddenly nothing happened
[Am7/]     [B/] But in my [C]dr[B]ea[Am7]ms, I slew the dr[G]agon [G/]
Am7/B/ C *D G *C G/
And down this beaten path, and up this cobbled lane
Am7/B/ C B Am7 G *C G
I'm walking in my old footsteps, once again.


Chorus:

       And you s[C]ay, just [G]be here [D]now
       Forget about the p[C]ast,
       your m[Am7]ask is wearing t[G]hin  [G/Am7/B/C/]
       L[C]et me t[G]hrow one more d[D]ice
       I know that I can w[C]in
D C G *C G
I'm waiting, for my real life, to begin

        Any minute n[C]ow,
*D G *C G/
my ship is coming in
[Am7/]     [B/]   I'll keep checking the [C]ho[B]ri[Am7]zon   [G/]
Am7/ B/ C *D G *C G/
And I'll check my machine, there's sure to be that call
[Am7/]     [B/]   It's gonna happen s[C]oon, [B]soon,[Am7]   oh so very [Am7]soon,[G/C/]
        It's just that times are [G/]lean
