[D]First we’d climb a tree
[D]and maybe then we’d talk
[D]or sit silently
[D]and listen to our thoughts
[Cadd9]with illusions of someday
[D]casting a golden light
[C]no dress rehearsal,
[D]this is our life
Intro Riff (x2)

Pre-Chorus
[D]that’s where the hornet stung me [Cadd9]
and I had a feverish drea[D]m
with revenge and[Cadd9] doubt
tonight, we smoke them [D]out

Chorus
[A]You are ahead by a century[G/B], you are ahead by a century[A], you are ahead
by a century[G/B]

Intro Riff (x4)

Verse 2
[D]Stare in the morning shroud
[D]and then the day began
[D]I tilted your cloud
[D]you tilted my hand
Cadd9(drums enter same time)
rain falls in real time
[D]and rain fell through the night
[C]no dress rehearsal,[D] this is our life

Intro Riff (x2) (really hold on the D chord for the length of two intro riffs and
have an electric w/distortion strum Dsus2, the Dsus2 Csus2 for the next prechorus)

Pre-Chorus
[D]That’s when the hornet stung me[Cadd9]
and I had a serious [D]dream
with revenge and[Cadd9] doubt
tonight, we smoked them [D]out

Outro
[A]You are ahead by a century,[G] you are ahead by a century,[A] you are ahead
by a century,[G]                            [A] you are ahead by a century,[G]
you are ahead by a century,[A] you are ahead by a century [G]     [d]  [d]  [d]  [u]
G Intro Riff (x6)
and disappointing you’s getting me down end with D strum
