I won't   sit around    just thinking about the troubles that tomorrow brings

I'm dy - ing  to   be a - live, yeah
C     D   Em   F           D#    A#
Let's not go   through our lives without
     C    D    Em   F      D#    A#
Just dy - ing  to   be a - live, yeah

The people you've touched the way you touched them
I hope they've touched you too
'Cause in this life it's hard to tell what's false and what is true
We're all on the ground just crying out would somebody save me please
I won't sit around just thinking about the troubles that tomorrow brings

I'm dying to be alive yeah
Not trying to just survive
Let's not go through our lives without
Just dying to be alive

Bridge:
       Am    G     F        C
And we all   come  tumbling down
          Am    G             F              C
No matter how   strong we all return to the ground
        Am    G           F         C
Another day   gone, a day closer to fate
    Am                     F
And soon we'll find it's a little bit too late

The things you see the way you see them will never be seen again
Let's go through life living on luck, betting ten thousand to ten
Mistakes I've made in this life I can't say why or when
But the thing that's strange is you only live once, I'll never look back again

    D    Em   F#m   G       F    C
I'm dy - ing   to   be a - live, yeah
Not trying to just survive, yeah
Let's not go through our lives without
Just dying to be alive,  yeah


Bridge: (up a step)
       Bm    A     G        D
And we all   come  tumbling down
          Bm    A               G           D
No matter how   strong we all return to the ground
       Bm      A               G         D
In the days to come you'll say why did I wait
    Bm                         G     A
You can't just leave your life up to fate
              Bm               G             A
You've got to turn it around before it's too late


-Man!  That was a REALLY long song to tab out!  But I did
 it just for you guys!  It's really an amazing song when
 you think about it, and I got the solo!  As always, feel
 free to e-mail me with any questions, comments or suggestions
 you may have.  Enjoy!
