Intro: (Play fig. 1) ......If one could
C Stop time, or make it up Am C If two could realize the best of luck Em F If I could locate a god above G Am
And you only wanted to be loved Dm C Then I'd try to hang on to the past F G But you know that nothing, oh no nothing lasts
(Play fig.1) Nothing lasts .....It's time to
C Move on, let the past go Am C I waited for you here, but you never showed Em F Although I asked you to let me know G Am I only felt a cold wind blow Dm C While I tried to hang on to the past F G But you know that nothing, oh no nothing lasts
(Play first four measures of fig. 1)
Am C Nothing's in your way F G Now you can stand right up and run Am C Wouldn't even change things F Am If you took back what you've done Dm C I have tried to hang on to the past F G But I couldn't keep my grasp, cause nothing lasts
(Play the first four measures of fig.1 3X) Nothing lasts
(Play four measures of C, and end on Cmaj7) Nothing lasts
