My first tab -- I'm fairly new to this -- but it's a good jump-off point. Not too 
with how long the C is held before moving to Cadd9, but play around and find what you like.


G                   C
When paradise is no longer fit for you to live in
Cadd9
And your adolescent dreams are gone
G                          C
Through the days you feel a little used up
Cadd9
And you don’t know where your energy’s gone wrong
G                             C
It’s just your soul feelin’ a little downhearted
Cadd9
Sometimes life is too ridiculous to live
G                            C
You count your friends all on one finger
Cadd9
I know it sounds crazy just the way that we live


Chorus:

G                    D
Between a laugh and a tear
C
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
G                    D
Between a laugh and a tear
C
And that’s as good as it can get for us
                                    G          D   C
And there ain’t no reason to stop tryin’


G                            C
When this cardboard town can no longer amuse you
Cadd9
You see through everything and nothin’ seems worthwhile
G                               C
And hypocrite used to be such a big word to you
Cadd9
And it don’t seem to mean anything to you now
G                         C
Just try to live each and every precious moment
Cadd9
Don’t be discouraged by the future forget the past
G                     C
That’s old advice but it’ll be good to you
Cadd9
I know there’s a balance see it when I swing past


Chorus (x2):

G                    D
Between a laugh and a tear
C
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
G                    D
Between a laugh and a tear
C
And that’s as good as it can get for us
                                    G          D   C
And there ain’t no reason to stop tryin’

G                    D
Between a laugh and a tear
C
Smile in the mirror as you walk by
G                    D
Between a laugh and a tear
C
And that’s as good as it can get for us
                                    G          D   C
And there ain’t no reason to stop tryin’


G                 C               Cadd9
When paradise can no longer amuse you.....
