Tuning:Standard Capo: 3rd fret C: 332010 F: 033210 Cadd9:032030 G: 320033 Am:002210 Cmaj9:020010 Intro C Cadd9 G Am x1 C Cadd9 The other day, when we were walking by the graveyard near the house, G Am You asked me if I thought we would ever die. C Cadd9 And if life and love both fade so predictably, G Am We've made ourselves a kind of predictable life. C Cadd9 And so I pictured us like corpses, lying side by side in pieces, G Am In some dark and lonely blood under a bow. C Cadd9 We looked so silly there, all decomposed, half turned to dust, G Am In tattered clothes, but we probably look just as silly now. C Cadd9 Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. G F I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next, Am Or how to be. C Cmaj9 Am G F C But you have no idea about me, do you? C Cadd9 And it left me to wonder if people will ever know each other G Am By just stumbling around like strangers in the dark. C 'Cause sometimes you seem so strange to me, Cadd9 I must seem strange to you. G Am We're like two actors playing our parts. C Did you memorize your lines? Cadd9 'Cause I did. Here's the part where I get so mad, G Am I tell you I can't forget the past. C You get so quiet now, and you seem, somehow, Cadd9 Like a lost and lonely child. G Am And you just hope that the moment won't last. C Cadd9 Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. G F I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next, Am Or how to be. C Cmaj9 Am G F But you have no idea about me. C Cmaj9 Am G F C You have no idea about me, do you? F C So there's always a way around. F C There's something tying our feet to the ground, F Am A moment passed, we hate how it sounds. C Cmaj9 Am G F And it seems a little less profound, C Cmaj9 Am G F Like we're all going the same way down. C Cmaj9 Am G F Yeah we're all going the same way down, C Cmaj9 Am G F I'm just trying to write it all down. C G 'Cause I write songs, and you write letters, F G We are tied like two, in tethers. F G F G And we talk and read, and laugh and sleep, at night in bed, together. F G And you wake in tears sometimes, F G I can see the thoughts flash across your eyes. F G They say "Darling, will you be kind? F G Am Will you be a good man, and stay behind if I get old?" F G And then the letters all pass through my head, C Cmaj9 Am With the words that I was told, F G About the fading flesh of life and love, C Cmaj9 Am the failures of the bold. F G I can list each crippling fear l C Cmaj9 Am ike I'm reading from a will. C Cmaj9 Am G F And I'll defy everyone and love you still, C Cmaj9 Am G F I will carry you with me up every hill. C G C Cmaj9 Am And if you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky, F G C Cmaj9 Am I'll fall asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie. F G C G It may be better to move on, and to let life just carry on, Am And I may be wrong. C But still, I'll try. F G C Cmaj9 Am 'Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die, F G C Cmaj9 Am Yeah, It's better to love whether you win or lose or die. F G C Cmaj9 Am C It's better to love, and I will love you 'til I die.
