Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I was upset that it wasn't already up here in completion, so I got the whole thing 
down and decided to share it because I love all of your faces. :D 
            E
Our love is dead but without limit,
         A 
like the surface of the moon
       E                            B7 
or the land between here and the mountains. 
          E          
Well, it is not these hiding places
           A
that have kept us innocent 
                  E                  B7            E
but the way you taught me to just let it all go by.
               E
And so we've learned to be as faithless, 
       A
stand behind bulletproof glass,
          E                           B7
exchanging our affections through a drawer. 
                    E
And it was always horribly convenient
     A
and happening too fast. 
                        E                     B7                E
You should count your change before you're even out the door.

Yes, you should but please...


A                     E
Return, return to the person that you were. 
    C#m          B
And I will do the same 
               A                  E
cause it is too hard to belong to someone who is gone.
F#m                   A                    E
My compass spins. The wilderness remains.


E
Once too often, I have retreated 
         A
into the depths of my despair.
         E                              B7
I built a barricade to block you on the road. 
                            E
I was standing there with all of my possessions 
A
piled higher than a house, 
       E                      B7                      E
I felt closer to you than you ever would have known.
E
So let each tiny acts of charity 
            A
be common ground on which to build 
    E                                       B7
the monument that will commemorate our times. 
                  E 
And though, you swear you've found another 
                A
who will surely speed you on your way,
                 E                   B7                      E
don't let the forest grow over that path you came there by. 
But you will, so...


A                           E              
So hurry up and run to the one that you love.
C#m                    B 
And blind him with your kindness.
                A                              E
And he'll make war, old war, on who you were before.
           F#m         A                   E
And claim all that has spoiled in your heart.


E
Now, I tell myself I've mended 
             A
under these patches of blue sky.
                 E                                 B7
There are still a few holes that let in a little rain. 
              E
And it's been crying on my shingles.
                A
My floorboards moan under my feet. 
                   E                    B7                 E
The refrigerator is whining, so I've got reason to complain. 
E
But I am not gonna bless you with such compliments,
      A
some degrading psalm of praise, 
        E                                        B7
like the kind that converted you to me so long ago.
              E                                 A
Because the truth is that gossip's as good as gospel in this town.
                    E                    B7                 E
You can save your face but you won't ever save your soul. 

Baby that's a fact.


          A                 E              
So hurry up and run to the one that you love. 
    C#m               B
And tie him up in your likeness,
          A                    E           
And he'll become, become the prisoner I was. 
           F#m         A             E
And know all that has spoiled in your heart.
           F#m         A             E
And know all that has spoiled in your heart.
         
          A                 E
So hurry up and run to the one that you love. 
     C#m               B
And blind him with your kindness.
          A                      E
And he'll make war, old war, on who you were before.
           F#m         A             E
And claim all that has spoiled in your heart.
           F#m         A             E
Yeah, he'll claim all that has spoiled in your heart.
