I'm Alive  Jackson Browne

 

I'M ALIVE === Jackson Browne
 
 ------------------------------

Here's the latest by Jackson Browne, off
the album of the same name.
Intro:
[E] [A] [E] [A]  
[E] [A] [E] [B]  
It's been a [E]long time since I watched these li[A]ghts alone
I look [E]around my life tonight and [A]you are gone
i might have [E]done something to keep you if I'd [A]known
[E] How unhappy you'd be[B]come
Well I was [E]dreaming of you
With my [A]heart in your hands
And I was [E]following through
With my [C#m]beautiful[B] plans
[E] [C#m] [B]  
[E]Yeah, now I'm [A]rolling down this canyon[E] drive
With your [C#m]laughter in my [B]head
[E]Gonna have to block it o[A]ut somehow to sur[E]vive
B (tacet)
'cuz those dreams are dead
But I'm alive[E] [A] [E] [A]
I want to [E]go where I will never hear your [A]name
I want to [E]lose my sorrow and be [A]free again
And I [E]know I've been in[A]sane
[E]When I think of the places I [B]could've been
But I was [E]dreaming of you
With my [A]heart in your hands
And I was [E]following through
With my [C#m]beautiful[B] plans
[E] [C#m] [B]  
(solo)
[E] [E]  
Standing here by the [A]highway side
Watching these [E]trucks blow by
Inches from my [C#m]face
Yeah, [B]thinking about the time I've waste[E]d
(Dreaming of you)
And the pleasure we once taste[A]d
(Dreaming of you)
Looking up and down this road[E]
(Following through)
I've been [C#m]here befo[B]re
(Following through)
Can't be [C#m]here n[B]o more
(Dreaming of you)
[C#m](Dreaming of you)[B]
[E]Yeah, now I'm [A]rolling down this California [E]five
With your [C#m]laughter in my [B]head
[E]Gonna have to block it o[A]ut somehow to sur[E]vive
B (tacet)
'cuz those dreams are dead
But I'm alive[E] [A] [E] [A]
[E]Look at the way I believed in you and lo[A]ved you all these years
[E]Now you could fill a swimming pool with all [A]my salty tears
You [E]told me what was in your heart but[A] baby you lied
And I [E]thought that it would kill me,[A] but I'm alive!
