[Intro] 
A            Bm7         A     

[Verse]
    A            D                             
I'm sitting here flipping through 
Bm              E            A         D        Bm       F#m   E
Excuses for why I shouldn't call you 
      A             D
Every muscle, every fibre, 
      Bm          E            A           D        
Every hair object to the very idea 
Bm                F#m     E
     I just can't put my finger on 
A       D              Bm            E     A        D        Bm       F#m   E
However hard I try to slap away the halo around you 
         A             D
Still it lingers and abruptly 
        Bm             E         A         D        Bm       F#m   E
Without warning bitter memories appear

[Pre-chorus]
D                      E
When I think on it for long enough 
   D                         E
Of all the time we wasted on each other's love 
         F#m         A                 Bm            D  E
It's a wonder that I still believe the sun is coming up tomorrow 
Bm                Bm        A                       E               
         What was once so fine, has been broken and burned 
Bm            Bm               A                       E
         So I wait here in the dark, for the light to return

[Chorus]
F#m            D                   A                     E
Blinded, I was blinded 'til I knew only the good love survives 
F#m             D               A                     D
Blinded, 'til I understood that only the good love survives 
A                     D
Only the good love survives 
    E            D       A           D        Bm        E                    
But we were only wasting time   
A        D        Bm       F#m   E        

[Verse 2] 
A                  D
All those wringing hands
          Bm             E            A        D        Bm       F#m   E
And cheap ideas we could reason as failures
       A               D
But to run it through again 
           Bm          E         A        D        Bm 
Would only serve to do nobody no good 
   F#m     E
So let the universe decide
A          D              Bm        E               A        D        Bm       F#m   E 
How we can loosen all the knots and tangled ways we came to 
    A          D                 Bm
And resolve to never speak of it again 
   E               A        D        Bm       F#m   E
Oh love if only we could

[Pre-Chorus] 
D                      E
When I think on it for long enough 
   D                         E
Of all the time we wasted on each other's love 
         F#m         A                 Bm            D  E
It's a wonder that I still believe the sun is coming up tomorrow 
Bm                Bm        A                       E               
         What was once so fine, has been broken and burned 
Bm            Bm               A                       E
         So I wait here in the dark, for the light to return

[Chorus]
F#m            D                   A                     E
Blinded, I was blinded 'til I knew only the good love survives 
F#m             D               A                     D
Blinded, 'til I understood that only the good love survives 
A                     D
Only the good love survives 
    E            D       A           Bm7                   
But we were only wasting time   
A       Bm7          A        Bm7       A
We were only wasting time
