[Verse 1] (repeat intro in background)
I'm 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I'm just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I'm 22 for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we're on fire
Making our way back from Mars

[Chorus] (easier playing chords)
G     D                        Cadd9

Time to buy and time to lose
     Cadd9          Em7 D            Cadd9

When you only got 100 years to live...

67 is gone

Hey I just glanced at the first line and this is close to right considering there really isn't any wrong, because this is a piano piece. There is there is two double picks after the first high e. I'll give you more corrections when I look at the sheet music for it.
