[Verse 1]
D
Where did we come from?
D/F#
Why are we here?
G                          D D/C#
Where do we go when we die?
Bm
What lies beyond
    Bm/A
And what lay before?
   E/G#
Is anything certain in life?
Asus4 A         D
       They say "Life is too short"
     D/F#
"The here and the now"
    G                      D    D/C#
And "You're only given one shot"
    Bm
But could there be more
     Bm/A
Have I   lived before
   E/G#                             Asus4 A
Or could this be all that we've got?
 
 
[Chorus]
G             A
If I die tomorrow
         D
I'd be alright
  D/C#           Bm
Because I believe
                 G
That after we're gone
    Em             D
The spirit carries on

[Verse 2]
Asus4 A  D                          A/D
       I used to be frightened of dying
  G                              D D/C#
I used to think death was the end
    Bm
But that was before
        Bm/A
I'm not scared anymore
  E/G#                       Asus4 A
I know that my soul will transcend
  D                        A/D
I may never find all the answers
  G                    D  D/C#
I may never understand why
  Bm
I may never prove
       Bm/A
What I know to be true
      E/G#                         Asus4 A
But I know that I still have to try
 
 
[Chorus]
G             A
If I die tomorrow
              D       D/C#
I'd be alright Because
         Bm
I believe
                     G
That after we're gone
    Em             D Am/C
The spirit carries on

"Move on, be brave
      D#
Don't weep at my grave

But please never let
     Em                   Bm
Your me mories of me disappear"

Safe in the light that sur rounds    me
G                            D D/C#
Free of the fear and the pain

My questioning mind

I'd be alright Because

I believe

                  Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?
What lies beyond
And what lay before?
Is anything certain in life?

They say "Life is too short"
"The here and the now"
And "You're only given one shot"
But could there be more
Have I lived before
Or could this be all that we've got?

If I die tomorrow
I'd be alright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened of dying
I used to think death was the end
But that was before
I'm not scared anymore
I know that my soul will transcend

I may never find all the answers
I may never understand why
I may never prove
What I know to be true
But I know that I still have to try

If I die tomorrow
I'd be alright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

"Move on, be brave
Don't weep at my grave
Because I'm no longer here
But please never let
Your memories of me disappear"

Safe in the light that surrounds me
Free of the fear and the pain
My questioning mind
Has help me to find
The meaning in my life again
Victoria's real
I finally feel
At peace with the girl in my dreams
And now that I'm here
It's perfectly clear
I found out what all of this means

If I die tomorrow
I'd be alright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on
