About this tab version
The main differences between this tab and the versions I have found are: 1. I use a F#dim instead of a C 2. I added another E in the chorus 3. The bridge at the end of the song is different. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
My take on Lover I don't have to love. I feel it's a little more accurate then the tabs I saw here.

The riff that is played throughout the Intro and the first verse goes something like this:

e|---0-----------|---0--------|    |---------------|
H|--1-1p0--1-3-1-|----1p0---1-|    |---------------|
G|-2------1------|--2------2-1|    |-1-2-1-4-1-2-1-|
D|---------------|-4------3---| 2x |2--------------| 2x
A|---------------|------------|    |---------------|
E|---------------|------------|    |---------------|

Am E F#dim F
Am E F#dim F

[Verse 1]
Am           E   F#dim
I picked you out   
     F                   Am
Of a crowd and talked to you
                  E     F#dim
Said I liked your shoes,
           F                    Am
You said, "Thanks, Can I follow you?"
                E      F#dim
So it's up the stairs,
            F              Am
And out of view. No prying eyes.
              E    F#dim
I poured some wine.
I asked your name;
You asked the time.
Am                E  F#dim
Now it's two o'clock.
The club is closed,
We are up the block.
                  E  F#dim
Your hands are on me,
         F                 Am
Pressing hard against your jeans,
                  E     F#dim
Your tongue in my mouth,
                   F                 Am
Trying to keep the words from coming out,
                   E    F#dim
You didn't care to know
             F             E
Who else may have been you before.

Am                     E            F#dim
I want a lover I don't have to love,
                         F      E      Am
I want a girl who's too sad to give a fuck.
                          E        F#dim
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
I thought he said to meet him here,
    E       Am
But I'm not sure.
I've got the money
If you've got the time.
He said, "It feels good."
        F              E
I said "I'll give it a try."

[Verse 2]
Am                 E   F#dim
Then my mind went dark,
               F                  Am
We both forgot where your car was parked.
                    E      F#dim
Let's just take the train.
                      F              Am
I'll meet up with the band in the morning
Am    E          F#dim F
Bad actors, with bad habits...
     Am  E                  F#dim F
Some sad singers, they just play tragic.
         Am      E    
And the phone is ringing,
        F#dim  F
And the van is leaving
           Am    E
Let's just keep touching,
           F#dim   F       E
Let's just keep... keep singing

Am                     E            F#dim
I want a lover I don't have to love,
                         F        E      Am
I want a boy  who's too drunk he doesn't talk.
                          E        F#dim
Where's the kid with the chemicals?
                      F         E      Am
I got a hunger and I can't seem to get full.
                           E       F#dim
I need some meaning I can memorize.
                       F                E
The kind I have always seems to slip my mind.

But you, but you...
C               Em    F
You write such pretty words,
    C          Em   F
But life's no storybook.
          C      Em     F
Love's an excuse to get hurt.
And to hurt.
Do you like to hurt?
I do, I do.
          Am Am/G# Am/G D7/F#
Then hurt me,
          Am Am/G# Am/G D7/F#
Then hurt me,
          Am Am/G# Am/G D7/F#
Then hurt me...
