[Intro]
| F#/G# | C#/G# | D#m/G# | C#/G# |
| F#/G# | C#/G# | G#m7 | % |

[Verse 1]
Am7                         F
Too many broken hearts have fallen in the river
C         Em/B              D
 Too many lonely souls have drifted out to sea
F                               E
 You lay your bets and then you pay the price
    Dm               C
The things we do for love
    Dm7/G            C          LINK
The things we do for love

[Verse 2]
Am7                  F
Communication is the problem to the answer
C                Em/B            D
  You've got her number and your hand is on the phone
F                                  Am/E      E
  The weather's turned and all the lines are down
    Dm               C
The things we do for love
    Dm7/G            C
The things we do for love

[Bridge]
                    C            C/G
Like walking in the rain and the snow when there's
C           C/G          
 Nowhere to go when you're 
Dm             Dm/C           G7/B   G7
Feeling like a part of you is dying
           Am              C/G          F      D9/F#
And you're looking for the answer in her eyes  
    G                  E
You think you're gonna break up
         Am                Fm
Then she says she wants to make up

[Middle 8]
F#/G#           C#/G#
Ooh you make me love you
D#m/G#          C#/G#  
Ooh you've got a way 
F#/G#          C#/G#
Ooh you had me crawling
      | G#m7 | % | % | % |
On the floor   (oooh oooh ...)

[Solo] = [Verse] | Am7 | F | C Em/B | D | F | Am/E E Dm  | C Dm7/G | C (break)

[Bridge]
                    C            C/G
Like walking in the rain and the snow when there's
C           C/G          
 Nowhere to go when you're 
Dm             Dm/C           G7/B   G7
Feeling like a part of you is dying
           Am              C/G          F      D9/F#
And you're looking for the answer in her eyes  
    G                  E
You think you're gonna break up
         Am                Fm
Then she says she wants to make up

[Middle 8]
F#/G#           C#/G#
Ooh you make me love you
D#m/G#          C#/G#  
Ooh you've got a way 
F#/G#          C#/G#
Ooh you had me crawling
      | G#m7 | % |
On the floor

[Verse 3]
Am7                        F
 A compromise would surely help the situation
C         Em/B         D
 Agree to disagree but disagree before
F                           Am/E  E
 When after all it's just a compromise
       Dm               C
Of the things we do for love
     Dm7/G            C         
(The things we do for love)

[Outro]
    Dm7/G            C
The things we do for love
    Dm7/G            C
(The things we do for love)

(repeat and fade)
