                             Still Alive-Portal 
Tabbed by:RoboGeek123

This is Jonathan Coultons version that he plays here.  So don't complain about it 
not being the original game version.  Also this is my first tab so be gentle.  Link Below

Intro: A7   A   A7   A  

A7          A
This was a triumph.
     A7      A        A7       A
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
    Bm            E            A       A7    A 
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
A7       A       A7     A
Aperture Science
   A7         A
We do what we must
A7         A
because we can.
Bm              E
For the good of all of us.
           Dsus? ~~~~~~~~~~ (Let ring)
Except the ones who are dead.

 Chorus 1
            C         G           F         C
But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
C                G               F           C
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
        Dm            G
And the Science gets done.
         C    Csus?  Am   
And you make a neat gun.
         F          E         A     A7   A   A7   A
For the people who are still alive!

A7            A     A7    A
I'm not even angry.
A7        A    A7          A    A7  
I'm being so sincere right now.
Bm               E       
Even though you broke my heart.
    A             A7   A  
And killed me.
A7              A      A7 
And tore me to pieces.
     A7           A    A7     A
And threw every piece into a fire.
Bm                 E                    Dsus? ~~~~~~~~ (Let Ring)
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!

 Chorus 2
C                    G          F          C
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
     C            G 
And we're out of beta.
        F           C
We're releasing on time.
        Dm           G
So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
 C               Csus?       Am
Think of all the things we learned
         F          E         A7    A  
for the people who are still alive.

A7             A     
Go ahead and leave me.
   A7      A         A7    A
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Bm                  E              A7      A
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
A7     A        A7      A
Maybe Black Mesa
A7          A
A7         A
Bm            E
Anyway, this cake is great.
         Dsus? ~~~~~~~ (Ring Out)
It's so delicious and moist.

Chorus 3

        C         G 
Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
        C         G                 F            C
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
       Dm            G
I've experiments to run.
           C      Csus?  Am
There is research to be done.
        F          E         A      A7  
On the people who are still alive.

     A7         A      A7       A
And believe me I am still alive.
           A7          A         A7    A
I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
          A7         A      A7       A
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
     A7         A      A7       A
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
     A7         A      A7       A
And when you're dead I will be still alive.
