Writing a love song – Tam Duong 

Official website: http://www.tamduongmusic.com/

Original key – Capo 1 (all chord forms relative to the capo)

I usually play it with capo on 5th fret  because I find it easier to sing

This may not be 100% correct, but it is relatively close (I hope!) and it sounds good

Verse 1 

G                      Cadd9                D
It started out with hopeful thoughts in an empty room 
G                             Cadd9   D
Couldn’t find the right way to say I love you 
G                                       Cadd9                 D
Flipped through the dictionary, but the words were too ordinary 
G                            Cadd9                 D
You deserve so much better, but what can my pen do? 



Chorus 1 
G          Cadd9          Em            D
You are the hardest part of writing a love song 
G           Cadd9                  Em            D
Too hard to work it out when nothing’s quite spot on 
G        Cadd9          Em                D
How can anyone describe, the angel I see in your eyes? 
C         G                    Am             D        G
Even as I write this line, trying to capture you 



Verse 2 
G                     Cadd9    D
At a dead end with a lazy cliché 
G                       Cadd9          D
Wrote a couple down but can’t call it a day, gotta 
G                               Cadd9                   D
Try to think of something witty, nothing that’s been done already 
G                             Cadd9              D
Maybe I’m trying too hard, to say what I need to say? 



Chorus 2 

G            Cadd9          Em            D
You are the hardest part of writing a love song 
G           Cadd9                  Em            D
Too hard to work it out when nothing’s quite spot on 
G          Cadd9          Em                D
How can anyone describe, the angel I see in your eyes? 
C               G                    Am                    D        
Even as I write this line, trying to capture you 




Bridge 
Em
Perfect rhymes and imagery 
Bm
Metaphors and similes 
Am
But what are they good for? 
       A                 G       C
They don’t live up to you. 



Chorus 3 

G            Cadd9          Em            D
You are the hardest part of writing a love song 
G          Cadd9                  Em            D
Too hard to work it out when nothing’s quite spot on 
G          Cadd9          Em                D
How can anyone describe, the angel I see in your eyes? 
C         G                    Am          D        
Even as I write this line, trying to capture you 


Chorus 4 

G              Cadd9          Em            D
You are the hardest part of writing a love song 
G           Cadd9                  Em            D
Too hard to work it out when nothing’s quite spot on 
G         Cadd9          Em                D
How can anyone describe, the angel I see in your eyes? 
C               G                    Am       D        G
Even as I write this line, trying to capture you
