[E]my thoughts now blac[A]k and whit[E]e
they took [Gbm]apart a picture that wasn'[Dbm]t right
Ab barré A
pitch burning on a shining sheet
Gb barré A
the only maker that you'd want to meet
[E]dying man in a livi[A]ng room[E]
[Gb]whose shadow paces the flo[Dbm]or
Ab barré A
i'll take you out any open door

Chorus:
[Gb]this is not my l[A]ife.
it's just a [E]fond farewell to a friend
[Gb]not what i'm li[A]ke
it's just a [E]fond farewell to a friend
[Gb]couldnt get things ri[A]ght
[E]fond farewell to a [Dbm]friend

He said really I just wanna dance
Good and evil matched perfect it's a great romance
I can deal with some psychic pain
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Veins full of disappearing ink
Vomiting in the kitchen sink
Disconnecting from the missing link

1:51 min:

Chorus:
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what i'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
I couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend

2:18 min:

I see you're leaving me
And taking up with the enemy
The cold comfort of the in between
A little less than a human being
A little less than a happy high
A little less than a suicide
The only things that you really tried

2:46 min:

Chorus:
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what i'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
I couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend
[Gb]This is not my[A] life
[E]It’s just a fond farewell to [Dbm]a friend

Outro:
Play the chords of the chorus while humming “mmmmmmmmm”
