Too Far Too Fast
By Katherine Rowlands (604 741 5450)

(Capo Third Fret)

Intro D Emi Ami

D Emi
I can see how hard you’ve tried
Ami G
To keep up with the race
D Ami
You’ve got to be fast enough
F Emi
To take the changing pace

D C
You have wished so fiercely
G C
To forget what you believe
Ami D
But you never counted
C D
On what life had up it’s sleeve

G D C
You’re going too far too fast
D G
Too many barriers to get past
G D C
You know it isn’t going to last
D G
But the dye has already been cast

D Emi
You’ve been offered a lot of drinks
Ami G
And heartfelt compliments
D Ami
You’ve been paid awfully well
F Emi
In dollars and cense

D C
But money isn’t everything
G C
Sure, You tell me that you know
Ami D
While you work for every penny
C D
Just to hand back what you owe

G D C
You’re going too far too fast
D G
Too many barriers to get past
G D C
You know it isn’t going to last
D G
But the dye has already been cast

D Emi
You’ve watched the shades of grey
Ami G
As they’ve turned to black
D Ami
But you know that clarity
F Emi
Is only looking back

D C
You’ve a picked a road you know
G C
Will lead to things you’ve done
Ami D
You’ll always be a number
C D
But you won’t be number one

G D C
You’re going too far too fast
D G
Too many barriers to get past
G D C
You know it isn’t going to last
D G
But the dye has already been cast

F C D
Cheer up it’s only thirty years
G
Until you get a break
F C
And really, in the end
D G
Only half that time is spent awake

G D C
You’re going too far too fast
D G
Too many barriers to get past
G D C
You know it isn’t going to last
D G
But the dye has already been cast

Intro Ami F G Ami

Ami
I had a dream one night
F Gext 12345
I knew you were going to die
Ami
All I could feel was emptiness
F Gext 12345
And all I could do was cry

Ami
You were reading in the living room
F Gext 12345
So clearly then I saw your face
Ami
I hugged you tightly in my arms
F Gext 54321
But I knew this was our last embrace

F C
Don’t you ever go
Gext
I couldn’t be strong
C Ami
Every song would sound the same
C
I need you to know
F
That every word
G (C) C
I ever heard would be your name
F
I’ll pay what I owe
Ami
At the end of the show
Gext
But don’t you dare
Ami
Leave me in a nightmare

Ami
I woke up safely in my bed
F Gext 12345
Alone inside my room
Ami
I listened to an old voice message
F Gext 12345
And just stared into the gloom

Ami
I’d learned it off by heart
F Gext 12345
Before my eyes began to sting
Ami
I knew it had already taken place
F Gext 54321
It didn’t say a thing

Chorus

Ami
I got up and sent you a note
F Gext 12345
I couldn’t shake the dread
Ami
I knew it hadn’t really happened
F Gext 12345
But I couldn’t get it out of my head

Ami
When you finally wrote me back
F Gext 12345
I couldn’t help but feel
Ami
That there was nothing I could do
F Gext 54321
To keep it from becoming real

Am Em
If there ever came a time
G D
When we had to say farewell
Ami Emi
I know you’d go to heaven
G D
While my life became Hell

Chorus
