Love Song
Sara Bareilles  (www.sarabmusic.com)... so good.

I think these chords are pretty close for piano.  You have the ascending bass line of 
notes F# G, A Bb, C D, E F under the chords during the verses.  This is what I figured out 
to the recording.


[Verse]

Gm         Bb
head under water
         Dm
and they tell me
            F
to breathe easy for a while
Gm                 Bb
but breathing gets harder
     Dm       F
even i know that
Gm                Bb
you made room for me
                    Dm
but its too soon to see
       F
if im happy in your hands
Gm     Bb                 Dm     F
im unusually hard to hold on to


[Pre-Chorus]

Gm           Am
blank stares at blank pages
Bb      Am
no easy way to say this
Gm          Am                    Bb
you mean well,  but you make this hard on me


[Chorus]

                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you asked for it
            F            Bb
'cause you need one, you see
                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you tell me it's
         F
make or break in this
        Bb
if you're on your way
               Gm           F
i'm not gonna write you to stay
   Dm                           G/B
if all you have is leavin' im'a need a better reason
   Bb            C            Gm  Bb  Dm  F
to write you a love song today


[Verse]

Gm         Bb
i learned the hard way
         Dm
that they all say
            F
things you wanna hear
Gm                 Bb
and my heavy heart
Gm         Bb
sings deep down under you
         Dm
and your twisted words
            F
your help just hurts
Gm         
you were not what i thought you were
Bb
hello to high and dry


[Pre-Chorus]

Gm           Am
convinced me to please you
Bb      Am
made me think that i need this too
Gm          Am                    Bb
i'm trying to let you hear me as i am


[Chorus]

                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you asked for it
            F            Bb
'cause you need one, you see
                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you tell me it's
         F
make or break in this
        Bb
if you're on your way
               Gm           F
i'm not gonna write you to stay
   Dm                           G/B
if all you have is leavin' im'a need a better reason
   Bb            C            Gm  Bb  Dm  F
to write you a love song today


[Bridge]

Dm      Am      Bb
promise me
                 F     C
you'll leave the light on
Dm         Am      Bb
to help me see
                  F      C
with daylight, my guide, gone
Dm       A(maj)            Bb
'cause i believe there's a way
        C
you can love me because i say


Chorus:

                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you asked for it
            F            Bb
'cause you need one, you see
                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you tell me it's
         F
make or break in this
                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you tell me it's
         F
make or break in this
                          Gm
im not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you tell me it's make or break in this
        Bb
if you're on your way
               Gm           F
i'm not gonna write you to stay
        Dm
if your heart is no where in it
       C
i dont want it for a minute
         Dm
babe ill walk the seven seas
         G/B
when i believe that there's a reason
   Bb          C         Gm  Bb  Dm  F
to write you a love song today, today


Hopefully that's a little clearer!!

no the original song has the bridge in it, the iTunes version leaves it out

i think the Gm chord is actually a Gm7 chord played on the 3rd fret, the Gm sounds a bit too flat on the guitar
