Intro
C Cadd9 G Am x1


C Cadd9The other day, when we were walking by the graveyard near the house,
G AmYou asked me if I thought we would ever die.
C Cadd9And if life and love both fade so predictably,
G AmWe've made ourselves a kind of predictable life.
C Cadd9And so I pictured us like corpses, lying side by side in pieces,
G AmIn some dark and lonely blood under a bow.
C Cadd9We looked so silly there, all decomposed, half turned to dust,
G AmIn tattered clothes, but we probably look just as silly now.
C Cadd9Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence.
G FI can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next,
AmOr how to be.
C Cmaj9 Am G F CBut you have no idea about me, do you?
C Cadd9And it left me to wonder if people will ever know each other
G AmBy just stumbling around like strangers in the dark.
C'Cause sometimes you seem so strange to me,
Cadd9I must seem strange to you.
G AmWe're like two actors playing our parts.
CDid you memorize your lines?
Cadd9'Cause I did. Here's the part where I get so mad,
G AmI tell you I can't forget the past.
CYou get so quiet now, and you seem, somehow,
Cadd9Like a lost and lonely child.
G AmAnd you just hope that the moment won't last.
C Cadd9Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence.
G FI can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next,
AmOr how to be.
C Cmaj9 Am G FBut you have no idea about me.
C Cmaj9 Am G F CYou have no idea about me, do you?
F CSo there's always a way around.
F CThere's something tying our feet to the ground,
F AmA moment passed, we hate how it sounds.
C Cmaj9 Am G FAnd it seems a little less profound,
C Cmaj9 Am G FLike we're all going the same way down.
C Cmaj9 Am G FYeah we're all going the same way down,
C Cmaj9 Am G FI'm just trying to write it all down.
C G'Cause I write songs, and you write letters,
F GWe are tied like two, in tethers.
F G F G And we talk and read, and laugh and sleep, at night in bed, together.
F GAnd you wake in tears sometimes,
F GI can see the thoughts flash across your eyes.
F GThey say "Darling, will you be kind?
F G AmWill you be a good man, and stay behind if I get old?"
F GAnd then the letters all pass through my head,
C Cmaj9 AmWith the words that I was told,
F G About the fading flesh of life and love,
C Cmaj9 Amthe failures of the bold.
F GI can list each crippling fear l
C Cmaj9 Amike I'm reading from a will.
C Cmaj9 Am G FAnd I'll defy everyone and love you still,
C Cmaj9 Am G FI will carry you with me up every hill.
C G C Cmaj9 AmAnd if you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky,
F G C Cmaj9 AmI'll fall asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie.
F G C GIt may be better to move on, and to let life just carry on,
AmAnd I may be wrong.
CBut still, I'll try.
F G C Cmaj9 Am'Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die,
F G C Cmaj9 AmYeah, It's better to love whether you win or lose or die.
F G C Cmaj9 Am CIt's better to love, and I will love you 'til I die.
