G    D    G    C

G    C    G    D

 

G    D    G    C     You better grab it fast, it ain't gonna last.  It's gonna be gone be for too long.

G    C    G    D     So hold on                     to what you want.

 

G    D    G    C     Nothing       is       permanent.  Nothing forever stays the same.

G    C    G    D     So take it in                            while you can.

 

Chorus:

C D G  D G C      Like a blink of an eye      from the day we're born to the night we die

C D G  C             when we leave the storm          behind.  

D C G                  Like a blink of an eye.

 

G    D    G    C     We're a warm body in a cold world for a brief time we take a whirl.

G    C    G    D     So make the most of what you got.

 

G    D    G    C     We've got one life to make it right.  Before we know it'll be night.

G    C    G    D     So let your light shine inside.

 

{chorus}

 

G    D    G    C     When the game is over and your old don't say you we're never told.

G    C    G    D     So take the time to be bold.

 

G    D    G    C     Maybe our souls will live on.  Forever it'll be dawn.

G    C    G    D     So show the rest why we should come.

 

{chorus}
