C
about a month before school
F C
We were kids at the pool
F C G
When the diving boards were high
C
There was so much kudzu
F C
There were girls in swimsuits
F G C
and they wanted to see boys fly
F C
I was shaky at best tryin to be like the rest
F C G
As I jumped right off the side (oh my)
C
But my jump was too close
F C
concrete kissing my nose
F G C
made me feel like I almost died

F C
life can be a brand new swingset
F C G
then a struggle to survive (aaa aa a)
F C
when you realize you're dyin
F G
you might finally feel alive

(years later)
C
when the doctor told me
F C
this may be your last week
F C G
and so now it's time to try
C
to get affairs in order
F C
I just stood in the corner
F G C
with a box of oatmeal creampies
F
now there's wind in the trees
C
About 60 degrees
F C G
And it feels so good outside (it's nice)
C
I don't have to pretend
F C
to be happy again
F G C
Probably because I almost died

F C
life can be a wild ass party
F C G
then a struggle to survive (aaa aa a)
F C
when I realized I'm dyin
F G C
I finally felt alive

C
Barring any car wrecks
F C
or armed robberies gone awry
C
the heart of the mouse and the heart of the whale
F G
beat about the same number of times
C F C
a slower metabolic rate means a longer life
Am G C
so I'm takin' it easy at least until Saturday night
