I saw that no one had put the chord progression throughout the whole song so I took that liberty. Credit goes to "Unregistered" for actually finding the chords. lol! Standard tuning Capo on 1st fret D D A D Love writes a letter and sends it to hate. G G A D My vacations ending. I'm coming home late. G A D G The weather was fine and the ocean was great D A G G and I can't wait to see you again. D D A D Hate reads the letter and throws it away. G G A D "No one here cares if you go or you stay. G A D G I barely even noticed that you were away. D A G G I'll see you or I won't, whatever." D D A D Love sings a song as she sails through the sky. G G A D The water looks bluer through her pretty eyes. G A D G And everyone knows it whenever she flies, D A G G and also when she comes down. D D A D Hate keeps his head up and walks through the street. G G A D Every stranger and drifter he greets. G A D G And shakes hands with every loner he meets D A G G with a serious look on his face. D D A D Love arrives safely with suitcase in tow. G G A D Carrying with her the good things we know. G A D G A reason to live and a reason to grow. D A G G To trust. To hope. To care. D D A D Hate sits alone on the hood of his car. G G A D Without much regard to the moon or the stars. G A D G Lazily killing the last of a jar D A G G of the strongest stuff you can drink. D D A D Love takes a taxi, a young man drives. G G A D As soon as he sees her, hope fills his eyes. G A D G But tears follow after, at the end of the ride, D A G G cause he might never see her again. D D A D Hate gets home lucky to still be alive. G G A D He screams o'er the sidewalk and into the drive. G A D G The clock in the kitchen says 2:55, D A G G And the clock in the kitchen is slow. D D A D Love has been waiting, patient and kind. G G A D Just wanting a phone call or some kind of sign, G A D G That the one that she cares for, who's out of his mind, D A G G Will make it back safe to her arms. D D A D Hate stumbles forward and leans in the door. G G A D Weary head hung, eyes to the floor. G A D G He says "Love, I'm sorry", and she says, "What for?" D A G G I'm your and that's it, Whatever. G A D G I should not have been gone for so long. D A G G I'm yours and that's it, forever." D A G G You're mine and that's it, forever.
