Intro:  G	C
	G	Dsus	D


       G                   C
We all lead such elaborate lives
       D              G
Wild ambitions in our sights
       G     C#m              Em   
How an affair of the heart survives
      C                D
Days apart and hurried nights

                C#m
Seems quite unbelievable to me
                Em
I don't want to live like that
                C#m
Seems quite unbelievable to me
                C
I don't want to love like that
D                       E             C        D      C
I just want our time to be slower and gentler, wiser, free

       G                   C
We all live in extravagant times
        D                  G
Playing games we can't all win
    G     C#m        Em
Unintended emotional crimes
          C                D
Take some out, take others in

                C#m
I'm so tired of all we're going through
                Em
I don't want to live like that
                C#m
I'm so tired of all we're going through
                C
I don't want to love like that
D                      E              C     D         C     G 
I just want to be with you now and forever, peaceful, true

                    C
This may not be the moment
            G
To tell you face to face
                    A
But I could wait forever
                         D
For the perfect time and place

C      G                   C
We all live such elaborate lives
         D                    G
We don't know whose words are true
           G      C#m        Em
Strangers, lovers, husbands, wives
        C                 D
Hard to know who's loving who

                 C#m
Too many choices tear us apart
                Em
I don't want to live like that
                 C#m
Too many choices tear us apart
                C
I don't want to love like that
D                         E                  C       D      C      Dsus...D...G
I just want to touch your heart, may this confession be the start

Good! I find it works better for me with capo on 4 and replacing the C#m for a B.
