VERSE 1:
 Em      C  Em                    C     D4
   Long ago, she was working with dying people
 Em               C   Em             C      D4
   And she let me know some of their lonely wisdom
 Em            C  Em          C        D4
   She'd never met anyone who on their death-bed
 Em            C    Em             C       D4
   Wished they spent more of their time at work

BRIDGE A:
          C            G/B
   It was families and prayer on knees
   Am                 C             D          C             C2
   Smelling roses and walks through trees that meant something

CHORUS:
   G        D4   Em      D
   Spending time growing close
   Am               C
   Thinking of what matters most
   G        D4      Em     D
   Spending time is all we have
         Am                     C
   Let's change our lives while we still can

VERSE 2:
   They were young when they met and fell in love
   He worked hard he was paid well and got promoted
   "It's all for you!" he said he couldn't understand the distance
   She said she felt years alone had killed their romance

REPEAT BRIDGE A AND CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS

VERSE 3:
   You and I we met when things were simple
   You earned the bread and I dreamed of making millions
   How things have changed and tonight I sing for money
   And she's at home immersed in books and study

BRIDGE B:
   You come home and I go out
   Let's not forget what this is all about

REPEAT CHORUS 2X
