[Intro]
Bm   Bm    D G      A      C# B   D E (x2)

[Verse 1]
Bm                                 G
Hey taxi, take me straight to the heart of it
       Bm         A             G
The nucleus of politics where somebody, somebody started it
Bm                             G
Cause they tax me with a scalpel piece by piece
Bm                    A                 G
they cut me deep and bled me dry 'til there was nothing left to bleed

[Chorus]
D
And this is how I choose to live 
G
As if I'm jumping off a cliff
D
knowing that you'll save me
A                    Bm      G
knowing that you'll save me 
          D
and after all the stupid things I did
         G
There's nothing left there to forgive
            D
'cause you already forgave me 
          A          Bm      G
yeah you already forgave me

[Interlude]
Bm   Bm    D G      A      C# B   D E (x2)

[Verse 2]
Bm
Just keep driving
             G
leave this defeat miles behind me
Bm               A                G
so far back I'd have to wreck my mind  

and just remind me 
Bm                       G
I keep trying to pick myself back up

and then move on 
    Bm              A          
I think about the life I'll have 
          G
when this fragile one is gone.

[Chorus]
D
And this is how I choose to live 
G
As if I'm jumping off a cliff
D
knowing that you'll save me
A                    Bm      G
knowing that you'll save me 
          D
and after all the stupid things I did
         G
There's nothing left there to forgive
            D
'cause you already forgave me 
          A          Bm      G
you already forgave me

[Bridge]
Bm       A
Never forget
G                   D         F#m
there's life after death and taxes
Bm                A
And forgiveness comes
G               D
and all of the rest 
              F#m   G 
is what passes away
           A           F#m         
Death and decay can't touch us now

[Interlude]
Bm   Bm    D G      A      C# B   D E
Bm   Bm    D G      A     F#m

[Bridge 2]
G                      A                        
Every breath that I inhale is followed by exhaling 
Bm                          C
trust the one who never fails
                          G
I know he'll never fail me


[Bridge]
     Bm       A
Just never forget
G                   D         F#m
there's life after death and taxes
Bm                A
And forgiveness comes
G               D
and all of the rest 
              F#m
it just passes away


[Final Chorus]
     Bm
And this is how I choose to live 
    A
As if I'm jumping off a cliff
G
knowing that you'll save me
D                    F#m
knowing that you'll save me 
          Bm
and after all the stupid things I did
         A
There's nothing left there to forgive
            G
'cause you already forgave me 
     D          F#m
you already forgave me
G           A          F#m      Bm
Death and decay can't touch us now
