 EAE
 my thoughts now black and white
 GbmDbm
they took apart a picture that wasn't right
Ab barré A
pitch burning on a shining sheet
Gb barré A
the only maker that you'd want to meet
 EAE
 dying man in a living room 
 GbDbm
 whose shadow paces the floor
Ab barré A
i'll take you out any open door

Chorus:
 GbA
 this is not my life.
 E
it's just a fond farewell to a friend
 GbA
 not what i'm like
 E
it's just a fond farewell to a friend
 GbA
 couldnt get things right
 EDbm
 fond farewell to a 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
 GbA
 This is not my life
 EDbm
 It's just a fond farewell to a friend
