Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Half Life  Too Much Joy



[G]   There [D/F#]is no [Em]space [C]
[G]   For what you [D/F#]need to [Em]know  [C]
[G]   [D/F#]I'm the [Em]forms that [C]I must [G]fill out.[D/F#]      [Em]    [C]
I'm happiest alone
I'm miserable that way
All this stuff just wants to spill out.


Pre-chorus:

C* G (bass: G F# E)
I take pleasure

[Em]   in the simple thi[A]ngs

C* G (bass: G F# E)
I love my headphones

[Em]   and my wedding rin[D]g

Chorus: (same rhythm as verse)

[G]Are you talking [D/F#]to me now or [Em]reading from a [C]script?

[G]What's that supposed to [D/F#]mean you say you [Em]wanna be your[C]self?
[G]I don't think you [D/F#]really know just [Em]who the hell that [C]is.
[Em]   You spend [Am]half your life
C (back to verse pattern)
pretending you're like everybody else.

(like everybody else)


Verse 2:

I tell the same joke
many different ways
but you never seem to get it.

You're jerking off
to catalogs
don't you feel a bit pathetic?

(Pre-chorus)

Chorus:

You spend half your life remembering your life when you were young
half your life dreaming how much better life can get
well everytime you make a choice, hey half your life is gone

All you've got's a few good dreams
divided into many small regrets.
(like everybody else)

Solo (over verse)

Verse 3:

I never take any pictures
just try to remember
all I remember is trying.

Here's a story I like
I think it happened to me
I don't even know
if I'm lying
if I'm lying
if I'm lying


Chorus:

Are you talking to me now or reading from a script?
What's that supposed to mean you say you wanna be yourself?
Well I don't think you really know just who the hell that is
No I don't think you have a clue just who the hell that is
So what's your half life?
So what's your half life?
So what's your half-life?
So what's your half life?

You spend half your life
pretending you're like everybody else.

[G]   [D/F#]      [Em]    [C]                       [G]
