Artist : August Wells
Song : Rest Of My Life

[Intro] : D A
          C G Em A

[Verse] :
D                             A  
I left school at just 14 I'm told I'm paying the price
C                       G    
It's kept me small and kept me mean
Em                       A
Having to be nice when I don't feel nice
D                      A
Stood on many corners, up against many a wall
C                        G                Em     A
Said I'm gonna work much harder but then easy calls
     D                         A
And easy calls me often, and always by my name
        C                      G               
Being called by a name means something to a man 
            Em               A
who's been left out of the game

[Chorus] :
C                          G 
I've got nothing to offer you
D                   C
but the rest of my life
C                          G
Nothing I can really offer you
D                   C
but the rest of my life
       Em   G    A
And a sad love song

[Verse] :
D                             A  
I'm the son of a decent man, a decent mother too
            C                       G    
They were taught suffering and working too hard
      Em              A
It's just what good people do
D                               A
You build two walls of silence, another two of pain
        C                  G                             Em                     A
If you have your own door to close behind you, you can keep yourself halfway sane.
          D                                A
But the only thing that's golden are the crumbs upon the ground
       C                  G               Em           A
They fill your mouth like jewels from an everlasting crown

[Chorus] :
C                          G 
I've got nothing to offer you
D                   C
but the rest of my life
C                          D
Nothing I can really offer you
D                   C
but the rest of my life
       Em   G    A
And a sad love song

[Verse] :
D                             A  
I drive a big blue car, from 1983, 
          C                        G    
It's the only thing I've ever been good to and
           Em                      A
the only thing that's been good to me
D                                   A
Money comes money goes, it doesn't stay around me too long
    C                    G              Em                     A
I don't know much about very much, and less about right and wrong
      D                                   A
If I do go on if I don't go on, well the reasons will be much the same
        C               G                          Em               A
I've lived without the ground beneath me man, I've lived without a name

[Chorus] :
C                          G 
I've got nothing to offer you
D                   C
but the rest of my life
C                          D
Nothing I can really offer you
D                   C
but the rest of my life
       Em   G    A
And a sad love song

[Outro] :
D             A                               C
Stay, stay away from the man, who says that love,
Em              G      A
love comes from outerspace   (x4)
