[VERSE 1] 
C          CM7           C6      CM7   G
Life’s too short to even care at all - whoa-oh
F                                             G
I’m losing my mind, losing my mind, losing control
      C                                            G
These fishes in the sea they’re staring at me - oh whoa-oh oh whoa-oh oh
F                                        G
A wet world aches for a beat of a drum - whoa-oh


[CHORUS]
           Am
If I could find a way to see this straight
    G
I’d run away
                     F      
To some fortune that I-I
       Am            G
Should have found by now
                 F         Am            G
I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down (come down)

[VERSE 2]
C                                      G
Life’s too short to even care at all - whoa-oh
    F                                        G
I’m coming up now, coming up now, out of the blue - oh-oh oh-oh
      C                                                     G
These zombies in the park they’re looking for my heart - oh whoa-oh oh whoa-oh oh
  F                                          G
A dark world aches for a splash of the sun - whoa-oh


[CHORUS]
Am
If I could find a way to see this straight
    G
I’d run away
                     F          Am            G
To some fortune that I-I should have found by now
                                                 Am  
And so I run right to the things they said could restore me
                 G
Restore life the way it should be
                     F     Am            G
I’m waiting for this cough syrup to come down


[VERSE 3]
C                                      G
Life’s too short to even care at all – whoa-oh
F                                             G
I’m losing my mind, losing my mind, losing control

Note: C6 chord is actually CM7Add6 but UG doesn't highlight that chord. Just leave the B string open.
