     G                       D/F#
On a plane to the West Coast, laptop on my tray
C                              D
Papers spread across my seat, a big deadline to make
G                                    D
An older man sitting next to me said, "Sorry to intrude,
C                               D
Thirty years ago my busy friend, I was you.
Em             Bm        C                D
I made a ton of money and I climbed up the ladder,
Em          Bm       C                D
Yeah, I was superman, not what does it matter.

[Chorus]
            G
I missed the first steps my daughter took
   Am                                   C
The time my son played Captain Hook in 'Peter Pan'
                       D
I was in New York, said 'Sorry son, Dad has to work'
G
I missed the father daughter dance
   Am
The first home run, no second chance
     C
To be there when he crossed the plate
   D
The moment's gone now it's too late
C               Bm                       Am
Fame and fortune come with a heavy price
    D               G         D/G  C  D
Son, don't miss your life."

G                               D
Funny you should say that, I was sitting at the gate
  C                                                  D
My daughter called, she made straight A's and they're off to celebrate.
G                                   D
Scrolling through the pictures of my little family
  C                                        D
My daughter with her mom and friends, not a single one with me.
Em         Bm          C                D
They know I love 'em, I know they know I care
Em          Bm             C                   D
The truth is half the time, I'm not even there.

[Chorus]
            G
I missed our fourth and fifth anniversary
   Am
Our girl was early by a week
   C
Her sister had to hold her hand
     D
I was in L.A., she said "I understand"
G
I missed her first day of school
Am
Then what kind of crazy fool
    C
Lets such precious moments pass
  D
We all know time goes way too fast
C                   Bm                     Am  D
Hold on tight ‘cause it don't happen twice 
               G
Don't miss your life.

F                 C/E                D
When I get off this plane, I'll buy a turn-around ticket
F            C/E                  D
Saturday's her eighth birthday and I'm not gonna miss it

              G                  
There'll be balloons and birthday cake
   Am
And I'll clean up the mess they make
  C
My mom and dad are drivin' in
 D
I haven't seen 'em in God knows when
  G
My wife will probably say to me
  Am                                 C
"I thought you were supposed to be in Portland
                          D
For a few more days", I'll take her in my arms and say
  C                     Bm                       Am  D
"I heard some words that hit me hard last night,
                                      G---
A man said: 'Don't miss your life'."
