G--0-------0----------     Played 3X
D---0--7------------2-
A--------------9----3-
E---------------------

[!] C and D11 chords are played for 2 bars, as everthing else is strummed by one.

               Em    Gb    C             
Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up
                Em   Gb    C   
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck
         Em          Gb     C     D11 
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost
               Em    Gb          C
I'll show you mine, if you show me yours first
      Em             Gb         C
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you who's is worse
 Em              Gb        C     D11    
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words


Chorus:

 Em        Cadd9     G         D
We live on front porches and swing life away
 Em        Cadd9     G         D
we get by just fine here on minimum wage
 Em        Cadd9     G         D
If love is a labour I'll slave til the end
 Em        Cadd9     G         D11
I won't cross thses streets til you hold my hand

continue on for the rest of the song, Verse 2 and chorus,
It's the same chords and strumming pattern all throughout.

Outro:
