Aren't we the same two people who lived through years in the dark?
Bm                  A/B       Gmaj7                    F#7sus4  F#7
Every time I try to walk away something makes me turn around and stay
Bm                   A/B     G       F#m7
And I can't tell you why.
Dmaj7                                 Gmaj7
When we get crazy it just ain't right girl I get lonely too

Nothing's wrong as far as I can see we make it harder then it has to be

And I can't tell you why no baby

In the original studio recording, it just keeps repaeating the last few bars and 
fades out. However, on the Eagle's live album and on "Hell Freezes Over," the 
song ends with a little ditty like this at the end...
