Real Life 
by Lincoln Brewster and Mia Fieldes

If you're not familiar with the song, you may have to arrange the chords exactly 
where they're played since there are a couple spots where the words get kinda 
tricky.  Otherwise, enjoy!

Intro: G   D/F#  C

I still see the kid in me
Building castles by the sea
C 										G
And skipping rocks across those ocean waves
Still building buoy rafts
And sailing on the Kachemak
C 									G
And running wild across Alaskan plains

Bm  			  C  			  G/D    D
And all my yesterdays don't seem so long ago now
Bm  			  C  			  
And all those early years 
G/D    				   D 
will always seem like home somehow

			G		    		   D/F#
And it was real life, and it was real good
It was a place I took for granted 
			G/D			    D
'cause I just never understood
				G		      			D/F#
And there was real pain, there were real tears
But the way my Mama loved me 
			G/D			    D
somehow carried all those years
		G	D/F#  C			     G   D/F#   C
It was real life, 		 Oh it was real life

I still see the kid in jeans
But now he's standing next to me
C 										G
Never thought that I'd have boys to raise
I don't have it figured out
It still feels like playing house
C 										G
And it's something I am learning everyday

Bm  		 C  			  		    G/D    		D
And all of my todays seem like they're rushing by so fast
 Bm  		  C  			    G/D    		     D 
And every time I look around I pray that it will last

		G		    		D/F#
And it's real life, and it's real good
And sometimes I take it all for granted 
	     G/D			     D
even though I never should
			  G		      				D/F#
And there is real pain, and there are real tears
But the way my baby loves me 
			G/D			    D
somehow carries all these years
			G	D/F#   
And this is real life

Interlude: Em  C  G  D (2x)  	C

When I'm old and turning grey
And my boys have moved away
C 									G
When it's time for me to say goodbye
I hope I leave a legacy
I hope that God is proud of me
C 										G
I hope that I leave something good behind

Bm  		 C  			  	   G/D    				D
And all my yesterdays are flashing right before my eyes
  Bm  		  		C  			    G/D    	 D 
And I'm standing in God's presence when I finally realize

		G		    	  D/F#
This is real life, this is real good
	    C									 G/D	D
It's a place I took for granted 'cause I just never understood
				G		      			  D/F#
And there'll be no pain, and there'll be no tears
		 	C					  		   G/D 		 D
'Cause the way my Father loves me is the reason I am here
		G	D/F#  C			     G   D/F#   C
This is real life, oh this is real life
		G	D/F#  C
Oh this is real life
