My love and I,
E7sus4         E7
   We work well together
F#m11/C#                 Dmaj7
   But often we're apart
E7sus4       E7        F#m11/C#  
  Absence makes the   heart lose weight, yeah,
Dmaj7                               
  Till love breaks down,  

 A
   Oh my, oh my,
E7sus4               E7
   Have you seen the weather?
F#m11/C#                  Dmaj7
   The sweet September rain
E7sus4   E7     F#m11/C#
  Rain on me,  like no other
Aadd11
  Until I drown, ...


CHORUS
Aadd11                   E7sus4       E7                  
  When love breaks down,      the things you do
Aadd11                    E7sus4     E7
  To stop the truth from hurting you
Aadd11                   E7sus4   E7           
  When love breaks down, the lies we tell,
Aadd11               E7sus4      E7      
  They only serve to fool ourselves,
Aadd11                   E7sus4       E7               
  When love breaks down,     the things you do
Aadd11                   E7sus4     E7 
  To stop the truth from hurting you
Aadd11                   E7sus4   E7           
  When love breaks down, the lies we tell,
Aadd11               E7sus4      E7      
  They only serve to fool ourselves,

   My love and I,
E7sus4           E7
   We are boxing clever
F#m11/C#                  Dmaj7
   She'll never crowd me out
E7sus4        E7     F#m11/C# 
  Fall, be free as   old confetti
Dmaj7
  And paint the town,  

CHORUS
Aadd11                   E7sus4       E7

Aadd11                    E7sus4     E7
  To stop the truth from hurting you
Aadd11                   E7sus4   E7           
  When love breaks down, the lies we tell,
Aadd11               E7sus4      E7      
  They only serve to fool ourselves,
Aadd11                   E7sus4       E7               
  When love breaks down,     the things you do
Aadd11                   E7sus4     E7 
  To stop the truth from hurting you
Aadd11                     E7sus4   E7           
  When love breaks down, the lies we tell,
Aadd11               E7sus4      E7
