Intro: C chordC G chordG C chordC F chordF

C chordC G chordG
The other day when we were walking by the graveyard near the house
C chordC F chordF
You asked me if I thought we would ever die
C chordC G chordG
And if life and love both fade so predictably
C chordC F chordF
We've made ourselves a kind of predictable life

C chordC G chordG
And so I pictured us like corpses lying side by side in pieces
C chordC F chordF
In some dark and lonely blood under a bow
C chordC G chordG
We looked so silly there all decomposed half turned to dust
C chordC F chordF
In tattered clothes but we probably look just as silly now

C chordC G chordG
Bye bye bye bye bye bye to all this dogged innocence
C chordC F chordF
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next
C chordC
Or how to be
C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC Em chordEm
But you have no idea about me do you

C chordC G chordG
And it left me to wonder if people will ever know each other
C chordC F chordF
By just stumbling around like strangers in the dark
C chordC
Cause sometimes you seem so strange to me
G chordG
I must seem strange to you
C chordC F chordF
We're like two actors playing our parts

C chordC
Did you memorize your lines 'Cause I did
G chordG
Here's the part where I get so mad
C chordC F chordF
I tell you I can't forget the past
C chordC
You get so quiet now and you seem somehow
G chordG
Like a lost and lonely child
C chordC F chordF
And you just hope that the moment won't last

C chordC G chordG
Bye bye bye bye bye bye to all this dogged innocence
C chordC F chordF
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next
C chordC
Or how to be
C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
But you have no idea about me
C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC Em chordEm
You have no idea about me do you

C chordC Em chordEm
So there's always a way around
C chordC Em chordEm
There's something tying our feet to the ground
F chordF
A chordA moment passed we hate how it sounds

C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
And it seems a little less profound
C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
Like we're all going the same way down
C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
Yeah we're all going the same way down
C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
I'm just trying to write it all down

C chordC G chordG
Cause I write songs and you write letters
C chordC G chordG
We are tied like two in tethers
C chordC G chordG C chordC G chordG
And we talk and read and laugh and sleep at night in bed together
C chordC G chordG
And you wake in tears sometimes
C chordC G chordG
I can see the thoughts flash across your eyes
C chordC G chordG
They say Darling will you be kind
C chordC G chordG F chordF
Will you be a good man and stay behind if I get old

Am chordAm G chordG
And then the letters all pass through my head
Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
With the words that I was told
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
About the fading flesh of life and love the failures of the bold
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
I can list each crippling fear like I'm reading from a will

C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
And I'll defy everyone and love you still
C chordC F chordF Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
I will carry you with me up every hill
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
And if you die before I die I'll carve your name out of the sky
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
I'll fall asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie

C chordC G chordG
It may be better to move on and to let life just carry on
C chordC
And I may be wrong
F chordF
But still I'll try

Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
Yeah It's better to love whether you win or lose or die
Am chordAm G chordG Em chordEm G chordG C chordC
It's better to love and I will love you 'til I die
