Your Long Year

Intro:  Riff (see below) X4  

Riff 4X
They say that youth is wasted on the young 
Still it's good that you're not jaded
And I'm glad you're having fun

E
Your long year ran right by here
Just another short day to me
So how have you been in your beautiful skin
Did you solve all the mysteries
     riff X2
In   your long year?

Riff 4X
And when time turns the table you'll be me 
Wearing all the tags and labels of an ancient history

E
Your long year ran right by here
Just another short day to me
So how have you been my immortal friend
Did you solve all the mysteries
     riff X2
In   your long year?

      E
"(and oh my) how time flies,"
Say the eyes of the dusty old men
(oh my) the days rush by
You laugh it off
The years get lost
                     Riff X4
'Till (oh my) you're one of them
Your long year

E
Your long year ran right by here
Just another short day to me
So how have you been in your beautiful skin
Did you solve all the mysteries
In your long year?

       E 
Did you love? Were you kind?
Giving thanks for the time
In your long year?
Did you dare to have faith
In goodness and grace
In your long year?

E
So how have you been my immortal friend
Did you solve all the mysteries
Cause your long year ran right by here
Just another short day to me
So how have you been in your beautiful skin
Did you solve all the mysteries
In your long year?  Repeat

RIFF:
A-----7--6--7------11---9--11---
E-----7--7--7------12--12--12---

This song is essentially one chord, E5 in the verse, E major in the chorus, but it rocks!
