When Mikel plays the G chord in this song, he only plucks the top 4 strings. In the into and at some points in the song he strums the D string and then strums the chord. This is subtle, but it makes the chord sound like a D chord at first. At other points in the song, he does strum the whole G chord. So it's tricky, but if you want it to be perfect, you can listen closely and see what I mean. Another side note - The B/C, A/C, and G/C chords are C chords with B, A and G on the bottom instead of C. I'm sure they have more official names than that, but this will do for now. Let me know if you know what their official name is, and i'll add them in. C G C Am
C GThe other day, when we were walking by the graveyard near the house, you
C Am C asked me if I thought we would ever die. And if life and love both fade so
G C Ampredictably, we've made ourselves a kind of predictable life.
C G CAnd so I pictured us like corpses, lying side by side in pieces, in some dark
Am C and lonely blood under a bow. We looked so silly there, all decomposed, half
G Am turned to dust, in tattered clothes, but we probably look just as silly now.
C G CBye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I
G Am C B/Ccan tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be. But you have no i-
A/C G/C Am Cdea about me, do you?
C GAnd it left me to wonder if people will ever know each other by just
C Am Cstumbling around like strangers in the dark. 'Cause sometimes you seem so
G Cstrange to me, I must seem strange to you. We're like two actors playing our
Am C Gparts. Did you memorize your lines? 'Cause I did. Here's the part where I get
C Am C so mad, I tell you I cant forget the past. You get so quiet now, and you
G Cseem, somehow, like a lost and lonely child. And you just hope that the
Ammoment wont last.
C G CBye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I
G Am C B/Ccan tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be. But you have no i-
A/C G/C Am C B/C A/C G/C Am C dea about me, no i- dea about me, do you?
C Am CSo there's always a way around. There's something tying our feet to the
Am G Amground. A moment passed, we hate how it sounds.
C B/C A/C G/C Am C B/C A/C G/C AmAnd it seems a little less profound. Like we're all going the same way down.
C B/C A/C G/C Am C B/C A/C G/A Am Yeah we're all going the same way down. I'm just trying to write it all down.
C G Am'Cause I write songs, and you write letters. We are tied like two, in
G C G Amtethers. And we talk and read, and laugh and sleep, at night in bed,
G C G Amtogether. And you wake in tears sometimes, I can see the thoughts flash
G C G across your eyes. They say "Darling, will you be kind? Will you be a good
Am G Amman, and stay behind if I get old?"
C G C B/CAnd then the letters all pass through my head, with the words that I was
Am C G C B/C Amtold. About the fading flesh of life and love, the failures of the bold. I
C G C B/C Amcan list each crippling fear like I'm reading from a will.
C B/C A/C G/C Am C B/C A/C G/CAnd I'll defy everyone and love you still. I will carry you with me up every
Am Am B/C C B/C Am Amhill. If you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky. I'll fall
B/C C B/C Amasleep with your memory and dream of where you lie.
C G Am GIt maybe better to move on, and to let life just carry on. And I may be
Am Cwrong. But still, I'll try.
Am B/C C B/C Am Am'Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die. Yeah, It's better
B/C C B/C Am Am B/C Cto love whether you win or lose or die. It's better to love, and I will love
B/C Amyou 'til I die.
