This is a really great song just to strum along with.

One, two,


[Verse 1]

Coming up to the end
These feelings weren't always pretend
         C                            D             Em
Review your whole life and you don't even have to die
Life would never leave me alone
A choice which way I wanted to go
        C                           D                                Em
And everything I've seen is wrong to make me what I'll be

[Verse 2]

Em   D
All men
    C                       G 
You don't need anyone
Just hold on to the end
             C                                Em         D
And you don't even have to look good
Em    D
   C                      G
You do fine on your own
         A                               C                              Em      D      Em
You're free to cry and you don't have to wipe your eyes


Ooh aah la la   (x5)
  G    G    D    D
Ooh aah Ooh ahh
Ooh aah la la   (x3)
  G    G    D    D
Ooh aah Ooh ahh
   Em                  G       D       Em
You once saved me     (x2)
   C                    G
You once saved me
     C                                            G 
And now I'm where you want me to be
    A                                    C                       Em  
Ascending endlessly and I don't even have to try      (x4)

About the artist behind Ascension:

John Anthony Frusciante (pronounced [fruːˈʃɑːnteɪ (info)) (born March 5, 1970) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known as the guitarist of the alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he has recorded five studio albums. Frusciante also maintains an active solo career, having released nine albums under his own name, as well as two collaborations with Josh Klinghoffer and Joe Lally under the name Ataxia. His solo recordings incorporate a variety of elements ranging from experimental rock and ambient music to New Wave and electronica. Drawing influence from guitarists of various genres, Frusciante emphasizes melody and emotion in his guitar playing, and favors vintage guitars and analog recording techniques.

Frusciante joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the age of eighteen, first appearing on the band's 1989 album Mother's Milk. The group's follow-up album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, was a breakthrough success. However, he was overwhelmed by the band's newfound popularity and as a result quit in 1992. He became a recluse and entered a long period of heroin addiction, during which he released his first recordings: Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt (1994) and Smile from the Streets You Hold (1997). In 1998, Frusciante successfully completed drug rehabilitation and rejoined the Chili Peppers for their 1999 album Californication. Since then he has continued to record with the band and has received critical recognition for his guitar-playing, ranking eighteenth on Rolling Stone's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2003.[1]
