Life Fades Away
recorded by Roy Orbison
written by
Glen Danzig and Roy Orbison
C                               Am
My time has come the clouds are calling
F                         G7
December wind has come my way
C                       Am
And now I feel the will falling
       F             G7             C
All at once it's too late life fades away
The night is my dream  all thoughts slip away
         F                   G7                  C
And even though I must leave you remember I love you
I'll always be in your memory
F                                      C
And I will always be with you when I'm gone
Fade life fades away
   F        G7         C
Oh yea  yea life fades away
               Am              F
I'm tired of tomorrow lost for today
          G7          C
I long to be at peace forever
My eternal peace and even 
F                             C
Though I will miss you I must leave you
Fade life fades away
   F       G7         C
Oh yea yea life fades away
                 Am                 F     
So please forgive me and try not to cry
          G7                  F     
I long to be at peace forever more
C       Am
Forever more
   F           G7
Oh yea yea yea yea
F           G7
Yea yea yea yea yea
            C                Am
Life fades away, Life fades away
F               Am
Life fades away away
F                 G7              C
One last thing to say life fades away
