Verse 1:
Cmaj7            Fmaj7
Let's get to bed early
                        Cmaj7
Sneak out right before the sunrise
                      Fmaj7
We don't need all the goodbyes
                     C9  C   Cmaj7
We won't be gone for long
                Fmaj7
Oh, baby, don't worry
                    Cmaj7
I hid away a little money
                    Fmaj7
We don't need much, honey
                      Cmaj7
Enough just to get us home

Pre-chorus 1:
            Fmaj      C            G
Let's don't wait 'til love comes undone


Chorus:
                   C
There's life to be lived
               Am
And stories to tell
           Em
Lessons to learn
              Fmaj7   F
We don't know yet
           C
Nothing to lack, looking back
        Am                    F      G
Knowing that we have lived it well
G               Fmaj7
With stories to tell


Interlude:
Fmaj7   Cmaj7   Fmaj7   Cmaj7


Verse 2:
               Fmaj7
What about California
              Cmaj7
LA out by the seaside?
                      Fmaj7
Watch the sun turn to moonlight
                           C9  C   Cmaj7
Then stay up and talk 'til dawn
          Fmaj7
Maybe Carolina
                   Cmaj7
Hide out up in the mountains
                        Fmaj7
A week or two, no one's counting
                     Cmaj7
Come back before too long

Pre-chorus 2:
         Fmaj      C            G
We won't wait 'til love comes undone


Chorus:
                   C
There's life to be lived
               Am
And stories to tell
           Em
Lessons to learn
              Fmaj7   F
We don't know yet
           C
Nothing to lack, looking back
        Am                    F      G
Knowing that we have lived it well
G               F
With stories to tell


Bridge 1:
F
The sea and the cities
C
The runway lights
Am
The highway humming
G
Staying awake all night
F
How all those mountains
C
Turned to desert sand
Am
Let's just disappear
     G
Come on baby, take my hand


Part-chorus:
                   C
There's life to be lived
               Am
And stories to tell
           Em
Lessons to learn
              Fmaj7 (let ring)
We don't know yet


Chorus:
                   C
There's life to be lived
               Am
And stories to tell
           Em
Lessons to learn
              Fmaj7   F
We don't know yet
           C
Nothing to lack, looking back
        Am                    F      G
Knowing that we have lived it well
G               F
With stories to tell

The highway humming

Staying awake all night
F
How all those mountains

Turned to desert sand
Am           C9  C  Cmaj7
Let's disappear
