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