LYRICS:

[G]                    [Cadd9]           [D]

Another turning point a fork stuck in the road
[G]                          [Cadd9]            [D]

time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go
[Em]       [D]          [C]                [G]

so make the best of this test and don't ask why
[Em]       [D]           [C]                [G]

it's not a question but a lesson learned in time
[Em]               [G]          [Em]            [G]

it's something unpredictable but in the end it's right
 [Em]             [D]       [G]

i hope you had the time of your life

so take the photographs and stillframes in your mind
hang it on a shelf of good health and good time
tatoos and memories and dead skin on trial
for what it's worth it was worth all the while
it's something unpredictable but in the end it's right
i hope you had the time of your life

{play intro ptII, verse and post-verse with no words then chorus with words
then intro ptII, then chorus (words) and finally the outro)

Corrected (25-02-09) rearranged for easier playing (in my opinion) also corrected C9 to Cadd9 (suprised no-one spotted this mistake before - trying to get from open to 8th and back to open is a pain in the hole and C9 doesn't sound right anyway - try it)
edoran (report comment to admin):
I play the intro bit differently myself - just hold the chords (G, Cadd9, D) and play like this: 2x base (first E string, then A and then D)then three lower strings (e, B, G) and then the ower e again. Here's the tab:
