After the rain    (video)

 

    Em - Am

 

    Em

1. All your life has been rambling, scurrying,

    Em

    take your time rather than hurry.

     Am

    Never too late to write the rest of your story,

          Am

    remember to breathe or else you're gonna be sorry.

     Em

    Life's no race, it's a companion,

    Em

    always face with reckless abandonment.

       Am

    A ticket to life as the mother once told me,

     Am

    stick with your pride and you're gonna be lonely.

 

G                     D                           Em                 C                          G

    Everybody says that life takes patience, but nobody wants to wait,

                   D                         Em             C                             G

everybody says we need salvation, but nobody wants to be saved.

                   - D                 - Em               C                        G

The light in       the tunnel         is just another runaway train,

                       - D                - Em                   C                                 G

the blue skies      we wait on      are gonna have to come after the rain.

 

+  D

 

        Em

2.  Spend your days happy and grateful,

       Em

    avoid the taste of wanting and wasteful.

    Am

    Every good thing will come in moderation,

     Am

    envy and greed will only lead to frustration.

        Em

    Choose your friends, carefree and kindly,

       Em

    choose your words, careful and wisely.

    Am

    Always be there to lend a comforting shoulder,

     Am

    one will be there to share and be when you're older.

 

+  CHORUS

 

      G                           D

+  Old mistakes committed upon us

    Em                   C

    always take a toll on the conscience.

      G                        D

    Every regret is a gift that you live with,

     Em                        C

    never forget to remember forgiveness.

 

G                     D                           Em                 C                          G

    Everybody says that life takes patience, but nobody wants to wait,

everybody says we need salvation, but nobody wants to be saved.
