The Graveyard near the house - The Airborne Toxic Event

Capo 3

Intro: C G C F

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