Am ::|

||:Am Dm E7 :||

Verse 1:

Am (/B) C(6)
Oh, for the sake of momentum
Dm F E7
I've allowed my fears to get larger than life
Am (/B) C6
And it's brought me to my current agendum
Dm F E7
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive

Chorus:

F G C Dm7
And I know life is getting shorter
F G C D7
I can't bring myself to set the scene
F G C Dm7
Even when it's approaching torture
F G F -- C/E -- Dm7 -- C
I've got my routine

Verse 2:

Oh, for the sake of momentum Am /B C6
Even though I agree with that stuff about seizing the day Dm F E7
But I hate to think of effort expended Am /B C6
All those minutes and days and hours Dm
I have frittered away. F E7

Chorus

And I know life is getting shorter F G C Dm7
I can't bring myself to set the scene F G C D7
Even when it's approaching torture F G C Dm7
I've got my routine F G F C/E Dm7 C

Bridge 1:

Bbm /C Db F7
But I can't confront the doubts I have
Bbm /C Db F7
I can't admit that maybe the past was bad
Am /B C6 C6/D
And so, for the sake of momentum
E7
I'm condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

Instrumental Verse 3: ||: Am /B C6 Dm F E7 :||

Instrumental Chorus: F G C Dm7 F G C D7
F G C Dm7 F G F C/E Dm7 C

Bridge 2:

When I can't confront the doubts I have Bbm /C Db F7
I can't admit that maybe the past was bad Bbm /C Db F7
And so, for the sake of momentum Am /B C6 C6/D
I'm condemning the future to death E7
So it can match the past. Am /B C6 Dm

Coda: E7 Am
