*1 The Am/G# could give you some problems to play. Use your pinky to play the G# (4),
it!
You can also play this chord simplified like:

4x22xx

Use your ring finger for the G# (4) and your index finger , barred, for the two '2', the
and a notes. You can mute the A string (the first x) with your ringfinger and the other
'x' with your index finger.
If you chose this way to play it, you might want to play the Am/G and Am/F# in that
simplified way. That makes:

Am/G 3x22xx
Am/F# 2x22xx

Use your middlefinger for the G (3) and your thumb for the F# (2). You
leave your index finger unchanged, like the Am/G# as shown above.
ENJOY

but time is a story and there will be more

chords for next verses and chorus, same as above.

and death in disgrace can seduce anyone
that needs to believe there's judgment at hand
or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb

Or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb

The years see the best of intentions and greed
they come without shame, they'll leave you with some
men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young

Men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young

bridge:
 GAm
The sun is a soldier, out crawling the hills
 GAm
setting fire to every house that's in view
 GAm
 lighting the ruin of my hope and my will
 DmG
till I'm like a shadow and I'm falling on you,
crawling on you..
Oh you know how I do.. (repeat intro)

So sleep here with me and I'll keep you close
for now while i try to live up to you
You can't see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I'm trying to

You can't see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I'm trying to

(repeat chorus chords for the last lines)
time is a dare and I'm trying to ( 3x )

end on Am
