Tabbed by Whitney Borisenok
Questions/Comments: wborisen@uvm.edu

Pretty basic song.  This is not exactly how Andy plays it, but these chords work 
You can mess around with some hammer-ons to sort of get the same kind of effect on the album.

So this is how it feels
E                                               B
Lean in to kiss the one that you love and she turns a cheek
        E
Let me tell you how it feels
E                                                       B
Watching the walls of the house that you build start crumbling

         G#m
Yeah you feel
        A       E
Love is passing by
         G#m
One more time
           A       F#
But you’re not surprised

      E               B
Yeah, we’re all amateurs
     G#m                   C#    B
And heaven knows we’re not perfect
E                 B
We try to get it right
   G#m                       C#    B
We keep messing up but we’re learning


A               E        B
When the day is done, oohhh
C#      B
I wanna know
A

A (strum once)
How do you really love someone?

If you’re further down the road
E                                          B
Put up a sign, everyone will show me which way to go
     E
Yeah maybe you can start a fire
                                             B
If your love is strong, we could just follow smoke


         G#m
Yeah you feel
            A         E
Like you’re broken down
         G#m       A         F#
Waiting ‘til the truth comes out


      E               B
Yeah, we’re all amateurs
    G#m                    C#    B

We try to get it right

We keep messing up but we’re learning

When the day is done, oohhh
C#         B
I wanna know

How do you love someone?
A (strum once)
How do you really love someone?
