Nearly everything I wanted, everything I ever could have dreamed of,   
       C#m             C#m                    C#7+5 C#dim
got it all right here, oh, in a house full of love

Nearly everything I thought, everything I thought I might try

Almost all came true, ooh, I'm satisfied

When I die (don't cry) remember me with a smile in my eye

It's been a long hard drive     maybe my car caught fire

Nearly everything I wanted, everything I ever could have dreamed of  
       C#m             C#m                    C#7+5 C#dim
Got it all right here, oh, in a house full of love

When I die (don't cry) remember me with a smile in my eye

            F#7                 Bbm
It's been a long hard drive     maybe my car caught fire
           F#7                             C#7+5
But nearly everything, everything came out fine
