THIS LIFE

 

Bruce Springsteen

 

Capo on 3

 

 

A [C] bang then [Em] stardust in your [F] eyes

A billion [Fm] years for just this [C] night

In a [G] way it will be al-[C]-right [G]

A [C] blackness then the [Em] light of a million [F] stars

As you [Fm] slip into in my [C] car

The [G] evening sky strikes [C] sparks [G]

 

This [F] life, this life and then the [C] next

With you I have been [F] blessed

What more can you ex-[C]-pect [G]

 

[C] At night at my [Em] telescope a-[F]-lone

This [Fm] emptiness I've [C] roamed

[G] Searching for a [C] home [G]

[C]The stars, a brief [Em] string of shining [F] charms

Rushing in right out of our [Fm] arms

Into the drifting [C] dark [G]

 

This [F] life, this life and then the [C] next

With you I have been [F] blessed

What more can you ex-[C]-pect [G]

 

This [F] life, this life and then the [C] next

I finger the hem of your [F] dress

My universe at [C] rest [G]

 

[Am] We reach for starlight all night [Em] long

But gravity is too [F] strong

Chained to this earth we go [C] on and on and on and on and on

[Am] Then a million sighs cresting where you [C] stood

A beauty in the neighbor-[F]-hood

This lonely planet never looked so [C] good [G]

 

This [F] life, this life and then the [C] next

With you I have been [F] blessed

What more can you ex-[C]-pect [G]

This [F] life, this life and then the [C] next

I finger the hem of your [F] dress

My universe at [C] rest [G]
