D
i had one friend in high school recently he hung himself with string

his note said,

G                                                D
"If livin' is the problem, well, that's just baffling."

D
and at the wake i waited around to see my ex first love

G                                                            D
and i barely recognized her, but i knew exactly what she was thinking of

A                            G                      D
we sat quietly in the corner whispering close about loss

A                                     G                           D
and i remembered why i loved her, and i asked her why i drove her off

          G         A       D
she said, "the slow fade of love

    G         A     D
its soft edge might cut you

G                    F#m7
and our poor friend, jim,

      D       A     G
well, he just lived within

G        A       D
the slow fade of love"

D
a woman calls my house once a week she's always selling things

G                                                  D
some charity, a phone plan, a subscription to a magazine
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/r/rilo-kiley/89183.html ]
       A                                        G                          D
and as i turned her down, i always do, there is something trembling in her voice
         A                              G                      D
i said, "hey what troubles you?" she said "i'm suprised you noticed"

D
"well my husband, he's leaving, and i can't convince him to stay

          G                                                      D
and he'll take our daughter with him she wants to go with him anyway

    A                            G                          D
i'm sorry i'm hard to live with, living is the problem for me

A                                         G                           D
i'm selling people things they don't want when i don't know what you need"

         G        A       D
he said "the slow fade of love

     G    A     D
it's mist might choke you

       G       F#m7
its my gradual decent

       D      A     G
into a life i never meant

        G    A       D
its the slow fade of love"

(instrumental interlude for about 30/25 seconds)

i found myself staring at the closed up door like the day she threw me out

D (start strumming normally again)
"diana, diana, diana i would die for you

       G                                                     D

but my mind is made up, and i'll never let you in again"...
