VERSE:
D                    Bm     C#m                     Gdim
 I've nothing much to offer,   there's nothing much to take

G                 D       C                    Bm    Em A
I'm an absolute beginner,   but I'm absolutely sane

D                  Bm      C#m                   Gdim
As long as we're together,    the rest may go to hell

G            D         C                     Bm
I absolutely love you,  but we're absolute beginners

G                    D     F#                    A
With eyes completely open,   but nervous all the same

CHORUS:
Em A   D                        G
If our love song could fly over mountain

                   Bm                    F#
Could laugh at the ocean, just like the films

Em      A  D                      G
There's no reason to feel all the hard times

                Bm                          A
To lay down the hard lines, it's absolutely true

MAIN LICK x2

VERSE:
Nothing much could happen, nothing we can't shake
Though we're absolute beginners, with nothing much at stake
As long as you're still smiling, there's nothing more I need
I absolutely love you, but we're absolute beginners
But if my love is your love, we're certain to succeed

CHORUS:
If our love song could fly over mountains
Could sail over heartaches, just like the films
If there's reasons to feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines, it's absolutely true


|: D  |  G  |  Bm  |  F#  | Em A |  D  |  G  |

|  Bm  |  A :| till the drum solo

After drum solo: MAIN LICK till the end (end on D)
