[Verse 1]

(Play as intro with the hammer on's)

 F        C    F          C
We might kiss  we are alone
F        C
nobody's watching
               G       C
I might take you home
F           C     F             C
We might make out when nobody's there
F                      C
It's not that we're scared
                    G
It's just that it's delicate


[Chorus]

(Strum the chords)

              F
So why do you fill my sorrow
         C
With the words you've borrowed
         F                     C(with hammer ons)
From the only place you've known
    F
And why do you sing Hallelujah
      C
If it means nothing to you
          F                C
Why do you sing with me at all?


[Verse 2]

 F        C    F          C
We might live like never before
F        C
When there's nothing to give
               G       C
Well how can we ask for more
F           C     F             C
We might make love in some sacred place
F                      C            G
The look on your face is delicate


[Chorus]

(Strum the chords)

              F
So why do you fill my sorrow
         C
With the words you've borrowed
         F                     C(with hammer ons)
From the only place you've known
    F
And why do you sing Hallelujah
      C
If it means nothing to you
          F                G
Why do you sing with me at all?

              F
So why do you fill my sorrow
         C
With the words you've borrowed
         F                     C(with hammer ons)
From the only place you've known
    F
And why do you sing Hallelujah
      C
If it means nothing to you
          F                G
Why do you sing with me at all?


[Outro] 

Just strum down using your thumb

     F                       C                            G

The second chorus ends with "G" not with "C", like this:
F
So why do you fill my sorrow
C
With the words you've borrowed
F C(with hammer ons)
From the only place you've known
F
And why do you sing Hallelujah
C
If it means nothing to you
F G
