[Verse 1]

             Em7        D5       Csus 
Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
                Em7       G5   Csus   
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
 Em7          G5         Csus            D5       
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?
             Em7      D5          Csus 
I'll show you mine; you show me yours first
            Em7         G5          Csus      
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you who's....is worse
   Em7              G5       Csus                   D5   
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own....words


[Chorus]

  Em7            Csus       G5        A5 
We live on front porches and swing life away,
 Em7         Csus          G5     A5 
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
  Em7    Csus          G5           A5 
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
  Em7                Csus        A5          D5  
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand


[Verse 2]

D5               Em7              D5          Csus 
I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
               Em7            G5   Csus    
The winter's so cold, summer's over too....soon
Em7            G5   Csus                     D5      
Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow
               Em7            D5      Csus 
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
                     Em7             G5         Csus 
But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
              Em7             D5         Csus             D5    
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will....go


[Chorus]

Em7           Csus        G5        A5 
We live on front porches and swing life away,
 Em7      Csus             G5     A5 
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
  Em7    Csus          G5           A5 
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
  Em7                Csus        A5          D5  
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
 Csus            D5  
..until you hold my hand

Swing life away,    Swing life away,
Em7  G5  A5  Csus   Em7  G5  Csus   
Swing life away,        Swing life away,

Hey guys! It's Project-96, I just found that I made a mistake on the tab in the solo. On all four parts where it shows:
e|-0--------| e|-0--------|
B|----0--1--| ====> B|----3--1--|
G|----------| IT'S THIS! G|----------|
D|----------| ====> D|----------|
A|----------| A|----------|
E|----------| E|----------|

There it is, it should be perfect now. Well, if you guys have any questions or comments or anything, you can email me at
project_96@hotmail.com Thanks guys!!
