Verse 1: [play A-chord riff throughout]
I've been digging a hole tonight, on my knees beneath the moon
All I need is a place to lie, guess a grave will have to do
Won't you give me two minutes please, just let me cover my eyes
All the hammer and scrape has been chipping away at the lustre of life


Chorus:
A                                      D2
So I (move, move), I would but I'm so tired
A                                          D2
(move, move) If I can shake myself I can dance with you


Interlude: [A] or play A-chord riff


Verse 2: [play A-chord riff throughout]
Though my body is far from old, I'm bound to useless youth
And I can't fake a first to throw through the crust of the earth
If you find me don't wake me, I can't be shaken awake
If you don't stare at the dark you can never feel bleak
Life starts to lose its taste


Chorus:
A                                      D2
So I (move, move), I would but I'm so tired
A                                         D2
(move, move) If I can shake myself I can dance with you
A                                             D2
(I hear drums) The worn out beat of a tired heart
A                                           D2
(you are young) If this is the prime of my life I wish I could skip the blasted youth


Interlude: [A - D2] or play A + D2-chord riffs


Outro chorus chords: [repeat several times until fade-out]
A
Skip the youth, its aging me too much
E
Skip the youth, its aging me too much
D2
Skip the youth, its aging me too much
D2
Skip the youth, its aging me too much
