Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Its Only Your Life  Kevin Devine

you [Am]wrestle your[G]self to the [F]ground
you spring[Dm]board and kick you[C]rself in the [G]mouth
cause [F]all of that d[C]rama, that em[G]barrassed ch[Am]arade
couldn't [Dm]stop you or settle you [G]down

so you [Am]got back with [G]your black [F]hole
and you [Dm]don't care who's [C]out there or who [G]knows
cause you're [F]spent and you're [C]sad
cause you've [G]bronzed it, it's your [Am]badge
and you've f[Dm]ixed it to all your [G]clothes
every t-shirt and o[F]vercoat
so it's with you through [F#madd]hot or cold
but i would [Dm]tear it [C]from the [G]cloth
yeah, i would [Dm]tear it f[C]rom the [Am]cloth  [F]
[G]grow up and knock it [C]off

cause there's a world awake outside
with injustice and music and july, july
with history's arc,
with your family,
with art.
but it don't mean nothing
not to you, not tonight

you can't see past the length of your nose
the biggest problems, well you're sure they're your own
that girl you cut loose
those two friends that cursed you
and all that powder that you can't leave alone

and you say, you know, you know, you know
but i know that you don't, you don't, you don't
cause if you did, you'd really try
if you did, you'd really try to let all that die

( break )
C, G, Am, Em, F x4 (on last circle C ,G, Am, Em, F, Fm)

so marry yourself to your work
and crowd your confusion with words
then round out your life with some records you like
while you bury your love in the dirt

cause it's endless, the ditch you can dig
you're stubborn, and you're prideful, and you're all over it
so i suggest you make sense of the time you've got left
so you don't end up back where you've been

and you say you w[F]on't, you won't, you won't
and i hope that you d[Fmadd]on't, you don't, you don't
but if you [Dm]mean it, then [C]stand up and[G] fight
but if you [Dm]mean it, then s[C]tand up and [Am]fight[F]
G C G, Am, Em , F
i mean, it's only your life

i mean it's only your [C]life
to fix or [G]ruin
to f[Am]igure what to [Em]do with[F]
it's only your [C]life
to fix or [G]ruin
cause no one [Am]else is going [Em]to do [F]it
cause it's only your [C]life

Am, G, F
