The Book Of My Life Chords

   
Great stuff here by a true master, Sting is truly the best.
Standard tuning (sorry about the mystery notes as I am not sure what they are called.)

 Music and lyrics by Sting.  
 The Book of my life.

Let me [F#m]watch by the fire and remember my days


And it [E]may be a trick of the firelight 


But the [B?/D#]flickering pages that trouble my sight


Is a [D]book I'm afraid to write



It's the[F#m] book of my days, it's the book of my life


And it's [E]cut like a fruit on the blade of a knife


And it's[B?/D#] all there to see as the section reveals


There's[D] some sorrow in every life



If it re[A]ads like a puzzle, a wa[Bm]ndering maze


Then I [F#m]won't understand 'til the [D dim7]end of my days


I'm still [D]forced to remember, 


Rem[Bm]ember the words of my life [F?]
 
(sorry that's it for now more to come)


[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/sting/the_book_of_my_life_crd.html ]
There are promises broken and promises kept
Angry words that were spoken, when I should have wept
There's a chapter of secrets, and words to confess
If I lose everything that I possess
there's a chapter on loss and a ghost who won't die
There's a chapter on love where the ink's never dry
There are sentences served in a prison I built out of lies.



Though the pages are numbered 
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life



There's a chapter on fathers a chapter on sons
There are pages of conflicts that nobody won
And the battles you lost and your bitter defeat,
There's a page where we fail to meet



There are tales of good fortune that couldn't be planned
There's a chapter on god that I don't understand
There's a promise of Heaven and Hell but I'm damned if I see



Though the pages are numbered 
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life



Now the daylight's returning
And if one sentence is true
All these pages are burning 
And all that's left is you



Though the pages are numbered 
I can't see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life
