GWhen paradise is no Clonger fit for you to live in Cadd9And your adolescent dreams are gone GThrough the days you feel aC little used up Cadd9And you don’t know where your energy’s gone wrong GIt’s just your soul feelin’ a Clittle downhearted Cadd9Sometimes life is too ridiculous to live GYou count your friends all onC one finger Cadd9I know it sounds crazy just the way that we live

Chorus

GBetween a laugh and aD tear CSmile in the mirror as you walk by GBetween a laugh and aD tear CAnd that’s as good as it can get for us And there ain’t no reason to stop trGyin’ D C GWhen this cardboard town can Cno longer amuse you Cadd9You see through everything and nothin’ seems worthwhile GAnd hypocrite used to be such a Cbig word to you Cadd9And it don’t seem to mean anything to you now GJust try to live each and Cevery precious moment Cadd9Don’t be discouraged by the future forget the past GThat’s old advice but Cit’ll be good to you Cadd9I know there’s a balance see it when I swing past

Chorus

x2): GBetween a laugh and aD tear CSmile in the mirror as you walk by GBetween a laugh and aD tear CAnd that’s as good as it can get for us And there ain’t no reason to stop trGyin’ D C GBetween a laugh and aD tear CSmile in the mirror as you walk by GBetween a laugh and aD tear CAnd that’s as good as it can get for us And there ain’t no reason to stop trGyin’ D C GWhen paradise can Cno longer amuse Cadd9you.....
