Life number two was given to you, you wouldnít return my call
         D           C          D    C         D            C   G
I was patiently waiting, anticipating, I felt two feet tall

Life number three was taken from me, I was seventeen
D                 C        D             C       D                 C                  D      C
You werenít aware that I was there, you were the homecoming queen
D                C     D                 C      D               C        D      C
Life number four went out the door, when I was twenty one

The perfect setting, the perfect wedding, there was nothing I couldíve done

Life number five, I was barely alive I was holding onto my dreams

I wished you the best but then I confessed to one of my devious schemes
D                 C     D              C           D          C        D        C
Life number six, it hit me like bricks, I saw you on the street
           D                                     D             C               D                      C              G
It was you and your man, you were holding his hand and I swear you were laughing at me

(TO CHORUS)

D                C                 D            C                   D             C         D         C
Life number seven, when I went to heaven, it had nothing to do with you
         D               C          D                    C             D          C            D       C
With shingles like butter, I tripped on the gutter and fell right off of the roof
D                 C            D                  C         D                        C           D       C
Life number eight, you moved out of state, I thought you were gone for good
         D              C         D           C          D      C      G
Then one sunny day you called to say you finally understood (that)
