[Ab]   [m]     [B]                             
Verse 1:
[F#]The litebrite's now bl[B]ack and whit[F#]e
Cause you t[Ab]ook[m] apart a picture that w[Eb]asn[m]'t right
[Bb]Pit[m]ch burning on a sh[B]ining sheet
[Ab]The[m] only maker that you'd w[B]ant to meet
[Eb]The[m] dying man in a l[B]iving roo[F#]m
Whose sh[Ab]ado[m]w paces the f[Eb]loo[m]r
[Bb]He'[m]ll take you out any [B]open door

Chorus:
[Ab]Thi[m]s is not my l[B]ife
It's just a f[F#]ond farewell to a friend
[Ab]It'[m]s not what I'm l[B]ike
It's just a f[F#]ond farewell to a fr[Eb]ien[m]d
[Ab]Who[m] couldn't get things r[B]ight
A f[F#]ond farewell to a fr[Eb]ien[m]d

Verse 2:
[F#]He said really I just w[B]anna danc[F#]e
Good and [Ab]evi[m]l matched perfect it's a [Eb]gre[m]at romance
[Bb]I c[m]an deal with some ps[B]ychic pain
[Ab]If [m]it'll slow down my h[B]igher brain
[Eb]Vei[m]ns full of disapp[B]earing in[F#]k
[Ab]Vom[m]iting in the k[Eb]itc[m]hen sink
[Bb]Dis[m]connecting from the m[B]issing link

Chorus:
[Ab]Thi[m]s is not my l[B]ife
It's just a f[F#]ond farewell to a friend
[Ab]It'[m]s not what I'm l[B]ike
It's just a f[F#]ond farewell to a fr[Eb]ien[m]d
[Ab]Who[m] couldn't get things r[B]ight
A f[F#]ond farewell to a fr[Eb]ien[m]d

[Ab]   [m]      [B]                            
Verse 3:
[F#]I see you're l[B]eaving me[F#]
[Ab]And[m] taking up with the [Eb]ene[m]my
[Bb]The[m] cold comfort of the i[B]n between
[Ab]A l[m]ittle less than a h[B]uman being
[Eb]A l[m]ittle less than a h[B]appy high[F#]
[Ab]A l[m]ittle less than a [Eb]sui[m]cide
[Bb]The[m] only things that you r[B]eally tried

Chorus:
[Ab]Thi[m]s is not my l[B]ife
It's just a f[F#]ond farewell to a friend
[Ab]It'[m]s not what I'm l[B]ike
It's just a f[F#]ond farewell to a fr[Eb]ien[m]d
[Ab]Who[m] couldn't get things r[B]ight
A f[F#]ond farewell to a fr[Eb]ien[m]d
[Ab]Thi[m]s is not my l[B]ife
It's just a f[F#]ond farewell to a f[Eb]rie[m]nd
