   D               G
It used to seem to me
        D               Asus A
that my life ran on too fast
      D              G 
and I had to take it slowly
        D                   Asus A
just to make the good parts last
     D                  G
but when you're born to run
        D                 Asus A
it's so hard to just slow down
   D                     G
so don't be surprised to see me
        D                   Asus A
back in that bright part of town.


        D           Em   D/F# G D/A G
I'll be back in the high life again
                D 
all the doors I closed one time 
     Asus A    D     Asus A
will open up again.
        D           Em   D/F# G D/A G
I'll be back in the high life again
                  D
all the eyes that watched me once
     Asus      A       D     G5 D
will smile and take me in.
         G                    D
And I'll drink and dance with one hand free.
A                  D
Let the world back into me
    G            D
and oh I'll be a sight to see
G    D  A   D    Asus   D    G5
back in the high life again.


You used to be the best
to make life be life to me
and I hope that you're still out there
and you're like you used to be
we'll have ourselves a time
and we'll dance till the morning sun
and we'll let the good times come in
and we won't stop till we're done.

We'll be back in the high life again
all the doors I closed one time 
will open up again.
we'll be back in the high life again
all the eyes that watched us once
will smile and take us in.
And we'll drink and dance with one hand free.
And have the world so easily
and oh we'll be sight to see
back in the high life again.

D  D/F# G    F  Bb
F  F/A  Bb   Eb C

D  G5 D Asus A ...

We'll be back in the high life again
all the doors I closed one time 
will open up again.
we'll be back in the high life again
all the eyes that watched us once
will smile and take us in.
And we'll drink and dance with one hand free.
And have the world so easily
and oh we'll be sight to see
back in the high life again.
