[Intro]
A  D/A  A  D/A

[Verse]
        A                     D/A
I was sure growing up I would live the life
    A                  D/A
My mother assumed I'd live
F#m                      F#m/E            D(add9)
Very Jewish, very middle-class, and very straight
       D/E
Where healthy men stayed healthy men
                             A        Dmaj7/A
And marriages were long and great
E7  A   Dmaj7/A   E7  A
I smile, I don't complain
E7  A                           D/A
I'm trying to keep sane as the rules keep changing
A                             D/A
Families aren't what they were
F#m                               F#m/E
Thank God there's a husband and a child
        D(ad9)
Whom I adore
D/E               A
But then there's more
D/A       A
So many more
D/A          D/G#  F#m  F#m/E   D
There's always more

[Chorus]
C#7  B(add9)/D# C#7/E# F#m F#m/E   D
Life is never what you planned
C#7             F#                A#7  B
Life is moments you can't understand
     D/E     A/E  Dmaj7/E  E7  A/E  Dmaj/E
And that is life
E7  A/E   Dmaj7/E  E7 A/E  Dmaj7/E
I'm plain, I don't astound

[Verse]
E7  A
I hold to the ground
        D/A
As the ground keeps shifting
A                   D/A
Keeping my balance square
F#m                       F#m/E                D
Trying not to care about this man who Marvin loves
D/E             A
But that's my life
D/A            A
He shared my life
D/A      D/G#   F#m  F3m/E  D
Yes, that's my life

[Chorus]
C#7 B(add9)/D# C#7/E# F#m  F#m/E    D
Life is never what you planned
C#7              F#               A#7
Life is moments you can't understand
      B  D/E A/E  Dmaj/E  E7  A/E  Dmaj7/E
And that is life

[Verse]
A/E
Holding to the ground
        A7/E                  A(#5)/E  B9/E  B7#9/E
As the ground keeps shifting
A/E
Trying to keep sane
        A7/E                A(#5)/E  B9/E  B(#9)/E
As the rules keep changing
A
Keeping up my head
         A/G#             F#m     A/E  D
As my heart falls out of sight
Eadd9 A/E   Eadd9 A/E
Eadd9 A/E              Eadd9 A/E  Eadd9 A/E  Eadd9 A/E
Everything will be all right
D/E                      A     Dmaj7/A  E9add4  A
Everything will be all right
