verse:
 D                   E  
Living isn't easy, feeling bright and breezy,
F#m
Everybody has to try
 D                     E                      A
Seeing and believing, never show the reason why 
D                    E                     F#m      
Even when we grow up and the body slow up, no no no
     D              E           A
We think again but do we understand?


chorus:
                   E
That's the way it goes
            A
Everybody knows
                   E                      A
That you can't survive if you ain't got drive
              D                     A
Those velvet wings can't help you fly
              D                                  E                                     
Those velvet wings won't always help you to get by
                   A
But you must carry on

verse:
People try and tell you anything they want to,
Saying that it's only fun
When they got you looking down the barrel of a gun
Never if we know it are we gonna blow it, no no no
We think again and so we understand

chorus:
That's the way it goes
Everybody knows
That you can't survive if you ain't got drive
Those velvet wings can't help you fly
Those velvet wings won't always help you to get by
But you must carry on


bridge:
F#m
I haven't told my secrets *
    A
I swore not to tell any lies *
 F#m
Something inside me is saying *
  D
That's the way it goes
            E 
That's the way it goes

second half of chorus:
Those velvet wings can't help you fly
Those velvet wings won't always help you to get by
But you must carry on

chorus:
That's the way it goes
Everybody knows
That you can't survive if you ain't got drive
Those velvet wings can't help you fly
Those velvet wings won't always help you to get by
But you must carry on
Those velvet wings can't help you fly
Those velvet wings won't always help you to get by
But you must carry on
