Verse 1: (plucked)
G                       Cadd9             D
Another turning point a fork stuck in the road,
G                                Cadd9                D  
Time grabs you by the wrist, and directs you where to go
Em          D            Cadd9             G
So make the best of this test and don't ask why
Em         D              Cadd9             G
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time

Chorus 1:
Em                    G           Em          G

I hope you had the time of your life.

Verse 2:
G                          Cadd9                D
So take the photographs and still frames in your mind
G                         Cadd9                D
Hang it on a shelf and in good health and good time
Em          D             Cadd9       G
Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial
Em            D            Cadd9         G    
For what it's worth it was worth all the while

Chorus 2:
Em                    G           Em         G             
Its something unpredictable but in the end is right

I hope you had the time of your life.

I hope you had the time of your life.
