Intro
D  Dsus2  D  Dsus2  A7sus (repeat 4x)

Verse 1
D AI got the call today, I didn't wanna hear
GBut I knew that it would come
D AAn old true friend of ours was talkin' on the phone
GShe said you found someone
AAnd I thought of all the bad luck,
And the struggles we went through
GHow I lost me and you lost you
AWhat are these voices outside love's open door
GMake us throw off our contentment
Asus AAnd beg for something more?
Chorus 1
D Em7 D/F#I've been learning to live without you now
GBut I miss you sometimes
D BmThe more I know, the less I understand
G Asus AAll the things I thought I knew, I'm learning again
D Em7I've been tryin' to get down to the heart of the matter
D/F#But my will gets weak
GAnd my thoughts seem to scatter
DBut I think it's a - bout forgiveness
BmForgiveness
G A D Dsus2 D Dsus2 A7sus (repeat 2x)Even if, even if you don't love me anymore
Verse 2
DThese times are so uncertain
AThere's a yearning undefined
GAnd people filled with rage
DWe all need a little tenderness
A GHow can love survive in such a graceless age
AAnd the trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness
GThey're the very things we kill, I guess
APride and competition cannot fill these empty arms
GAnd the work I put between us
Asus AYou know it doesn't keep me warm
Chorus 2
D Em7 D/F#I'm learning to live without you now
GBut I miss you, baby
D BmThe more I know, the less I understand
G Asus AAll the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again
D Em7I've been tryin' to get down to the heart of the matter
D/F#But everything changes
GAnd my friends seem to scatter
DBut I think it's a - bout forgiveness
BmForgiveness
G A D G DEven if, even if you don't love me anymore
Bridge
C GThere are people in your life who've come and gone
Am G/BThey let you down, you know they hurt your pride
C GYou better put it all behind you, baby; ‘cause life goes on
AYou keep carryin' that anger, it'll eat you up inside, baby
Chorus 3
D Em7I’ve been tryin’ to get down, to the heart of the matter
D/F#But my will gets weak
GAnd my thoughts seem to scatter
DBut I think it's a - bout forgiveness
BmForgiveness
G AEven if, even if you don't love me
Final Chorus
D Em7I've been tryin' to get down to the heart of the matter
D/F#Because the flesh will get weak
GAnd the ashes will scatter
DSo, I'm thinkin' a - bout forgiveness
BmForgiveness
G AEven if, even if you don't love me
D Em7 D/F#(Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness,
G D Bmforgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness)
G A Even if you don't love me anymore
D Dsus2 D Dsus2 A7sus (repeat 2x) D This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to experiment with your own chord voicings.
