...SONGS OF LOVE...by Ben Folds Five
------------------..................

*from 'Supersunnyspeedgraphic' (2006)*


Intro:

    C               F  C  F
e|---------------|-----------|
B|------1--1--1--|--1--1--1--|
G|------0--0--0--|--0--0--0--|

Verse 1:

C                F
 Pale, pubescent beasts,
                 G                  Am    Am/G
Roam through the streets and coffee-shops.
      Dm             F
Their prey gather in herds,
                     D#                     C#
Of stiff knee-length skirts and white ankle-socks.
    C                       F
But while they search for a mate,
              G        E7/G#      Am   Am/G
My type hiber-nate, in bedrooms a-bove,
    D7           F     G  C
Com-posing their songs of love.

Interlude:

    C               F  C  F

Verse 2:

C               F
 Young, uniform minds,
           G                 Am   Am/G
In uniform lines and uniform ties.
    Dm7                     F
Run round, with trousers on fire,
                D#                   C#
And signs of de-sire they cannot dis-guise.
      C              F
While I, try to find words,
                G           E7/F#    Am   Am/G
As light as the birds, that circle a-bove,
   D7        F     G   C    F, C
To put in my songs, of love.

Bridge 1:

G#maj7        Dm7b5     C         C/B   Am
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong, or right choice.
G#maj7      Dm7b5        C             G
 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

   C                    F
So sing while, you have time,
            G                  Am   Am/G
Let the sun shine, down from a-bove;
    D7            F     G   C
And fill you with songs, of love.

Interlude:

    C               F  C  F

Bridge 2:

G#maj7        Dm7b5     C         C/B   Am
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong, or right choice.

 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

   C                     F
So sing, while you still can,
              G                Am   Am/G
While the sun hangs, high up a-bove;
D7         F        Am    C
 Wonderful songs of love...
D7         F     G  Am    C
 Beautiful songs of love...
D7         F     G   C
 Beautiful songs, of love...

These two C chords in verse three have to be in second inversion. Otherwise, it sounds like it's resolving, but it's not meant to resolve harmonically until the end of the verse.

D7 F Am C/G
Wonderful songs of love...
D7 F G Am C/G
Beautiful songs of love...
