Lifetime Piling Up

Talking Heads

 AmG
 I can see my lifetime piling up
 AmG
 I can see the days turn into nights
 AmG
 I can see the people on the street
 Am
Open those windows up
 G
 - A hundred floors below me
 AmG
 Pilin' those houses up
 AmG
Pilin' them higher, higher, higher
 AmG
I can feel them swayin' back and forth
 Am
Building it higher, higher
 G
This tower's learning over

|:Am | G:|
I got bad coordination
Stuck a pencil in my eye
I can hardly wait to get back home
Why is everybody gettin' paranoid ?
I's only havin' fun
Scum bags and superstars
Tell me your names
I'll make a bet, you're
both the same

 AmG
 I can see my lifetime pilin' up
 AmG
 Reaching from my bedroom to the stars
 AmG
 I can see the house where I was born
 AmG
When I was growin' up... they say that
 AmG
I could never keep my trousers up
 AmG
I remember days and crazy nights
 AmG
Are there any pirates on this ship ?
 AmG
And if they sober up - they have us

Home by morning

|:Em :|
 F
Cry, cry, cry
 Am
It's just you and I -
 Em
Like an automobile
 Am
with no one at the wheel
 F
Spinning out of control
 Am
We're all over the road
 Em
In our sexy machine
All the passengers scream
Scream, scream !

|:Am |G :|
I can see my lifetime pilin' up
I can see it smashin' into yours
It was not as accident at all
Open those windows up - I hear you laughin'

Goin' from the bottom to the top
Maybe I'm holding on too tight
And now I'm foldin' up
I got a funny feeling
Pilin' them houses up
Pilin' them higher, higher, higher
Building that highway to the stars
Turning the music up - Hey!
I got a winning number
