D#  A#  D#  Cm

D# A#The other day, when we were walking by the graveyard near the house, you
D# Cm D# asked me if I thought we would ever die. And if life and love both fade so
A# D# Cmpredictably, we've made ourselves a kind of predictable life.
D# A# D#And so I pictured us like corpses, lying side by side in pieces, in some dark
Cm D# and lonely blood under a bow. We looked so silly there, all decomposed, half
A# Cm turned to dust, in tattered clothes, but we probably look just as silly now.
D# A# D#Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I
A# Cm D# A#/D Cm A# G# D#can tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be. But you have no idea about me, do you?
D# A#And it left me to wonder if people will ever know each other by just
D# Cm D#stumbling around like strangers in the dark. 'Cause sometimes you seem so
A# D#strange to me, I must seem strange to you. We're like two actors playing our
Cm D# A#parts. Did you memorize your lines? 'Cause I did. Here's the part where I get
D# Cm D# so mad, I tell you I cant forget the past. You get so quiet now, and you
A# D#seem, somehow, like a lost and lonely child. And you just hope that the
Cmmoment wont last.
D# A# D#Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I
A# Cm can tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be.
A# G# D# A#/D Cm A# G# D# D# A#/D CmBut you have no idea about me, you have no idea about me, do you?
D# Cm D#So there's always a way around. There's something tying our feet to the
Cm A# Cmground. A moment passed, we hate how it sounds.
D# A#/D Cm A# G# D# A#/D Cm A# G#And it seems a little less profound. Like we're all going the same way down.
D# A#/D Cm A# G# D# A#/D Cm A# G# Yeah we're all going the same way down. I'm just trying to write it all down.
D# A# Cm'Cause I write songs, and you write letters. We are tied like two, in
A# D# A# Cmtethers. And we talk and read, and laugh and sleep, at night in bed,
A# D# A# Cmtogether. And you wake in tears sometimes, I can see the thoughts flash
A# D# A# across your eyes. They say "Darling, will you be kind? Will you be a good
Cm A# Cmman, and stay behind if I get old?"
D# A# D# A#/DAnd then the letters all pass through my head, with the words that I was
Cm D# A# D# A#/D Cmtold. About the fading flesh of life and love, the failures of the bold. I
D# A# D# A#/D Cmcan list each crippling fear like I'm reading from a will.
D# A#/D Cm A# G# D# A#/D Cm A# And I'll defy everyone and love you still. I will carry you with me up every
G# Cm A#/D D# A#/D Cm Cmhill. If you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky. I'll fall
A#/D D# A#/D Cmasleep with your memory and dream of where you lie.
D# A# Cm A#It maybe better to move on, and to let life just carry on. And I may be
Cm D#wrong. But still, I'll try.
Cm A#/D D# A#/D Cm Cm'Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die. Yeah, It's better
A#/D D# A#/D Cm Cm A#/D D#to love whether you win or lose or die. It's better to love, and I will love
A#/D Cmyou 'til I die.
End on D#
