This Life (Springsteen Bruce)

D F#m G Gm D F#m G 1. A bang then stardust in your eyes, Gm D a billion years for just this night; A D A in a way it will be alright A blackness then the light of a million stars, as you slip into in my car; the evening sky strikes sparks D G R: This life, this life and then the next, F#m G with you I have been blessed D A What more can you expect? 2. At night at my telescope alone, this emptiness I've roamed; searching for a home The stars, a brief string of shining charms, rushing in right out of our arms; into the drifting dark R: This life, this life and then the next... R1: This life, this life and then the next, I finger the hem of your dress My universe at rest Bm F#m 3. We reach for starlight all night long, G but gravity is too strong; D chained to this earth we go on and on and on and on and on Bm D Then a million sighs cresting were you stood, Bm a beauty in the neighborhood; G D A this lonely planet never looked so good R: This life, this life and then the next... R1: This life, this life and then the next... D G F#m G D A (4x)
