[Intro]
G#|-2--------0------|
D#|----3--------3--2|
B |-------2---------|
F#|-----------------|

Play 3 times, G after each time, third time is G, D

[Verse 1]
                Em      G            C
Am I loud and clear or am I breaking up?
                Em          G         C
Am I still your charm or am I just bad luck?
    Em         G              C                   D
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?
              Em          G             C
I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
              Em          G             C
Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse
      Em          G             C                      D
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

[Chorus]
   Em              G                  C
We live on front porches and swing life away
   Em              G                  C
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
   Em              G                  C
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
   Em              G                  C       D
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

[Verse 2]
                  Em              G             C
I've been here so long; think that its time to move
                Em              G       C
The winter's so cold summer's over too soon
   Em             G             C                        D
so let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow
              Em              G             C
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
                   Em              G                C
But we've had some times I wouldn't trade for the world
               Em              G             C                D
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go

[Chorus]
   Em              G             C       
We live on front porches and swing life away
   Em              G             C
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
   Em              G             C
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end
  Em              G             C            D
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

Em    G     C
Swing life away
Em    G     C
Swing life away
Em    G     C
Swing life away
Em    G     C
Swing life away

[Outro]
