[Intro]
C   C   Em  Em
C   Am  Em  D/F#

C   C   Em  Em
C   Am  Em  D/F#

C   C   Em  Em
C   Am  

[Verse 1]
Em          Em                   G   D/F#
 The bells again... someone has died 
Em                Em             G   D/F#
 The bells of the end toll to remind 
     Am           C           Em     Em
that life's but a race against time 

[Verse 2]
Em        Em                 G   D/F#
 At your back you'll always hear 
Em               Em            G   D/F#
 The chariot of time hurrying near 
    D          C              G        G
The faster you run the closer it comes 
  D       C              G Am
A pursuer you can not outrun 

[Chorus]
Em                 Am     
Hear these words I say: 
C                 D   
Make the most out of your day 
    Em                    Am        
For brief is the light on our way 
        G           D/F# 
on this momentary trail 

Em                 Am      
Hear these words, awake: 
C                 D   
Make the most out of your day 
    Em                    Am                
For brief is the time, so brief is the time 
     G                  D/F#  D/F#  C  C  
that we're allowed to stay... 

[Verse 3]
Em           Em                      G     D/F#
 The bells again... whose turn this time? 
Em             Em            G     D/F#
 To reach the end, yours or mine? 
     D            C           G    G
Each funeral just makes us realize 
     D            C             G Am
that life's but a series of goodbyes 

[Chorus]
Em                 Am     
Hear these words I say: 
C                 D   
Make the most out of your day 
    Em                    Am        
For brief is the light on our way 
        G           D/F#  D/F#
on this momentary trail (...too late)

[Solo]
C   C   Em  Em  
C   Am  Em  Em D/F#

C   C   Em  Em  
C   Am  N.C.N.C.

[Chorus]
Em                 Am     
Hear these words I say: 
C                 D   
Make the most out of your day 
    Em                    Am        
For brief is the light on our way 
        G           D/F# 
on this momentary trail 

Em                 Am      
Hear these words, awake: 
C                 D   
Make the most out of your day 
    Em                    Am                
For brief is the time, so brief is the time 
     G                  D/F#  D/F#
that we're allowed to stay... 

[Outro]
            C  C                 Em
Life passes by, melts away like snow in the spring 
Em          C    Am                  Em   D/F#
 We all are blind to the running of time 

C   C   Em  Em  
C   Am  Em
