Capo on 4 (or whatever) Didn't see a complete version with the C -> Am transition on line three, so though I repost C G C Love writes a letter and sends it to hate. F C My vacations ending. I'm coming home late. F G C B/C Am The weather was fine and the ocean was great C G F and I can't wait to see you again. C G C Hate reads the letter and throws it away. F C "No one here cares if you go or you stay. F G C B/C Am I barely even noticed that you were a---way. C G F I'll see you or I won't, whatever." C G C Love sings a song as she sails through the sky. F C The water looks bluer through her pretty eyes. F G C B/C Am And everyone knows it whenever she flies, C G F and also when she comes down. C G C Hate keeps his head up and walks through the street. F C Every stranger and drifter he greets. F G C B/C Am And shakes hands with every loner he meets C G F with a serious look on his face. C G C Love arrives safely with suitcase in tow. F C Carrying with her the good things we know. F G C B/C Am A reason to live and a reason to grow. C G F To trust. To hope. To care. C G C Hate sits alone on the hood of his car. F C Without much regard to the moon or the stars. F G C B/C Am Lazily killing the last of a jar C G F of the strongest stuff you can drink. C G C Love takes a taxi, a young man drives. F C As soon as he sees her, hope fills his eyes. F G C B/C Am But tears follow after, at the end of the ride, C G F cause he might never see her again. C G C Hate gets home lucky to still be alive. F C He screams o'er the sidewalk and into the drive. F G C B/C Am The clock in the kitchen says two fifty five, C G F And the clock in the kitchen is slow. C G C Love has been waiting, patient and kind. F C Just wanting a phone call or some kind of sign, F G C B/C Am That the one that she cares for, who's out of his mind, C G F Will make it back safe to her arms. C G C Hate stumbles forward and leans in the door. F C Weary head hung, eyes to the floor. F G C B/C Am He says "Love, I'm sorry", and she says, "What for? C G F I'm your and that's it, Whatever. F G C B/C Am I should not have been gone for so long. C G F I'm yours and that's it, forever." C G F You're mine and that's it, forever.
