C                           G
I smoked my last cigarette, I drank my last drop
Am                          F 
Quit doing all the things I swore I'd never stop
C                       G
I changed my direction, I sang a different tune
Am                                   F     
Gave up all those childish ways that made me old too soon
Dm                                 G
Things were going good there for a while
  F                   G               C         C/B   Am
I tried to straighten out the crooked road that I was on
       C                           G               C 
It was good while it lasted but it didn't last too long


I used to play down on Broadway, the same song every night
Singing for the tip jar underneath the neon light
Had a good time with the women and the compliments were free
I dreamed of something bigger but it just wasn't meant to be
But I was happy there for a while
Just like a desperado out searching for a song
It was good while it lasted but it didn't last too long


Bridge:
G
Nothing lasts forever
F                    C   
Time knows that it's true
    Am  
But sometimes a little while 
       G
Is the best that we can do


You ended up beside me like some long forgotten dream
You took my hand and showed me colors I had never seen
We both said forever, forever till the end
But forever's something different to a lover and a friend
We thought we had it all there for a while
Just lIke that perfect moment 'tween the darkness and the dawn
It was good while it lasted but it didn't last too long

Tag:
F               G                  C 
One thing I can tell you from this life that's come and gone
       C                           G               Am
It was good while it lasted but it didn't last too long
       C                           G               C 
It was good while it lasted but it didn't last too long
