Hi. Just did these chords heaps quickly after listening to imogen
heap's "half life". Theyre easy to play, and they dont sound too bad
(at least i dont think they do :D). I tried timing the chords to her
lyrics so it'll be in tempo with the song. but... probably failed lol.

Hope you enjoy.

          Fm                                G
that i'm the one you really want to grow old with 
          C
i've got a schedule to stick to, got a world to keep sweet
          Em
it's so much to everyone all the time 
          Am
will you ever slow down? will i ever come first? 
          Fm                G

        Fm        G

                C
you know you'll never be lonely no, you'll always be loved 
           Em
and maybe, you'll never need more than that 
           Am
of others sapless little loves, what's to become of us? 
           Fm                     G
does it even register on your conscience? 
          C 
long for one last showdown from a box in a crowd 
     Em     
air compress tight to explode 
    Am
i'm clenching my ticket to the only way out 
             Fm               G
as you disappear in a puff of smoke 

C          Em
its a half life 
               Am
with you as my quarterback
       Fm      G     
a daft life


End on C. Or G. whatever you prefer. C = happy ending, G = Sad ending in my opinion.


HOPE YOU LIKED IT.

In the bridge, it's actually Em F Am three times, and on the last one, Em F G.
