If you’re not fit for survival
And you’re headed on your way
Then you forfeit the revival
Of the songs you used to play
So remember where you came from
‘Cause one day you will be there again

In the face of reminiscing
I think of her as dull
But just in case she’s listening
I’ll admit it was my fault
‘Cause she believes all that I tell her
And I wouldn’t want to hurt her again

And I was never sure
Of the way my life would go
Like many times before
It was all that I would know
And I can’t really tell you
What would happen if I tried
To admit to myself
That a part of me has died

I can see the sun is melting
As she slowly fades away
But there was just no helping
All the words I tried to say
If there was we would have made it
But there can be no turning back now

So it’s off with good intentions
And on with what is best
Until I find a place
Where I belong just like the rest
I should have guessed it would have taken
A couple of times or more before I’d know

But I was never sure
Of the way my life would go
Like many times before
It was all that I would know
And I can’t really tell you
What would happen if I tried
To admit to myself
That a part of me has died

    General CommentI think the opening line is "if you're not fit for survival, then headed on you're way"
    Great song by an unknown band. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post this but if anyone would tab this song out it would be greatly apreciated. The Rhythym is C Am F G fingerpicking (1 3 2 4 - 3 2 4 [string pattern]) with the pinky on the 3rd fret of the high e on the last run of the F and an open high e on the last run of the G. Actually i would be willing to collaborate with anyone who wants to tab it out.
