Half Life
by Too Much Joy (from the album "...finally")

(transcribed by Jason Finestone [jasonf@bu.edu])

NOTE:  C* is played like [x32033]
       D/F# is an open D chord with an F# in the bass

Verse:

G        D/F#  Em    C
   There is no space

G               D/F#    Em    C
   For what you need to know

G  D/F#    Em         C      G        D/F#  Em  C
   I'm the forms that I must fill out.


I'm happiest alone
I'm miserable that way
All this stuff just wants to spill out.


Pre-chorus:

C*         G    (bass: G  F#  E)
I take pleasure

Em                  A
   in the simple things

C*            G     (bass: G  F#  E)
I love my headphones

Em                   D
   and my wedding ring


Chorus: (same rhythm as verse)

G               D/F#         Em             C
Are you talking to me now or reading from a script?

G                       D/F#             Em           C
What's that supposed to mean you say you wanna be yourself?

G                 D/F#             Em                C
I don't think you really know just who the hell that is.


Em           Am
   You spend half your life

   C                                  (back to verse pattern)
pretending you're like everybody else.

(like everybody else)


Verse 2:

I tell the same joke
many different ways
but you never seem to get it.

You're jerking off
to catalogs
don't you feel a bit pathetic?

[Pre-chorus]

Chorus:

You spend half your life remembering your life when you were young
half your life dreaming how much better life can get
well everytime you make a choice, hey half your life is gone

All you've got's a few good dreams
divided into many small regrets.
(like everybody else)

Solo (over verse)

Verse 3:

I never take any pictures
just try to remember
all I remember is trying.

Here's a story I like
I think it happened to me
I don't even know
if I'm lying
if I'm lying
if I'm lying


Chorus:

Are you talking to me now or reading from a script?
What's that supposed to mean you say you wanna be yourself?
Well I don't think you really know just who the hell that is
No I don't think you have a clue just who the hell that is
So what's your half life?
So what's your half life?
So what's your half-life?
So what's your half life?

You spend half your life
pretending you're like everybody else.

G  D/F#  Em  C
