[Verse 1]
E               C                 A
  You sang your swan song to the dogs
                 C                 G                          E
‘Cause they make mince meat of the dreams you hung your boots on
              C                    A
So you cut it out, well your sins cost
            C                         G                       E
While money talks to your conscience, looking like a fool for love


[Chorus 1]
E  C  A
C  G  

E      C           G
  Dear life, I’m holding on
E      C           G     A  D#      F
  Dear life, I’m holding on,  ah-ah ah-ah ah
E     C          G
  How long must I wait
E   C         G        A    D#      F
  Before the thrill is gone,  ah-ah ah-ah ah

[Verse 2]
E                C               A
  You drove your Rolls into the swamp
           C                G                         E
You stole away like a thief reeling from the sticker shock
                  C              A
Of the price they put upon your soul
           C                      G                      E
You buy it back from the burning ashes of the devil you know


[Chorus 2]
E  C  A
C  G  

E      C           G
  Dear life, I’m holding on
E      C           G     A  D#      F
  Dear life, I’m holding on,  ah-ah ah-ah ah
E     C          G
  How long must I wait
E   C         G        A    D#      F
  Before the thrill is gone,  ah-ah ah-ah ah


[Bridge]

E                          C 
  Dear life, come and pick me up
                            G
  Dear life, I think the button’s stuck
E                              C 
  Dear life, I think it’s gone too far
                              G
  Dear life, please lower the bar, lower than the stars


[Chorus 3]
E      C           G
  Dear life, I’m holding on
E      C           G     A  D#      F
  Dear life, I’m holding on,  ah-ah ah-ah ah
E     C          G
  How long must I wait
E   C         G        A    D#      F
  Before the thrill is gone,  ah-ah ah-ah ah

E       C        G
  La-la la-la-la
E        C       G     A  D#  F
La-la-la,  la-la la-la
