[Verse 1]

D
First we’d climb a tree
D
and maybe then we’d talk
D
or sit silently
D
and listen to our thoughts
Cadd9
with illusions of someday
D
casting a golden light
C
no dress rehearsal, 
D
this is our life

[Pre-Chorus]

D                                Cadd9
that’s where the hornet stung me
                         D
and I had a feverish dream
                Cadd9
with revenge and doubt
                       D
tonight, we smoke them out


[Chorus]

A                         G/B                         A 
You are ahead by a century, you are ahead by a century, you are ahead

by a century

E|-----------------------| x4


[Verse 2]

D
Stare in the morning shroud
D
and then the day began
D
I tilted your cloud
D
you tilted my hand
Cadd9(drums enter same time)
rain falls in real time 
D
and rain fell through the night
C                  D
no dress rehearsal, this is our life

(really hold on the D chord for the length of two intro riffs and
have an electric w/distortion strum Dsus2, the Dsus2 Csus2 for the next prechorus)


[Pre-Chorus]

D                              Cadd9
That’s when the hornet stung me
                    D
and I had a serious dream
                Cadd9
with revenge and doubt
                        D
tonight, we smoked them out


[Outro]

A                          G                           A
You are ahead by a century, you are ahead by a century, you are ahead 
             G                           A                           G
by a century,                             you are ahead by a century, 
                           A                           G    D D D u 
you are ahead by a century, you are ahead by a century                  
G                    Intro Riff [x6]
