Intro:
C   G1     C/B1     Am

-Verse 1
          C                                 G1 
The other day when we were walking by the graveyard near the house 
              C/B1                        Am
You asked me if I thought we would ever die
        C                           G1 
And if life and love both fade so predictably
                        C/B1                 Am
We've made ourselves a kind of predictable lie 


          F     
And so I pictured us like corpses
           G2           
Lying side by side in pieces
         C/B2                           Am
In some dark and lonely plot under a bough
              F
We looked so silly there all decomposed
      G2                
Half turned to dust in tattered clothes
           C/B2                         Am
Though we probably look just as silly now


-Chorus
          F                               C            G2
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye to all this dog-eared innocence
         F                                   C               C/B2            Am
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next or how to be
             C  C/B2 Am    G3   F(Remember the high E-string)
But you have no i---de-a about me
     C
Do you? 


-Verse 2
         C                    G1
And it left me to wonder if people ever know each other
          C/B1                                 Am
Or just stumble around like strangers in the dark
           C                                  G1
'Cause sometimes you seem so strange to me, I must seem strange to you
                C/B1                Am
We're like two actors playing our parts


           F
Did you memorize your lines? 'Cause I did
              G2                                
Here's the part where I get so mad 
      C/B1                       Am
I tell you I can't forget the past
             F
You get so quiet now and you seem somehow
        G2
like a lost and lonely child
              C/B1                        Am
And you just hope that the moment won't last


-Chorus
          F                               C            G2
Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye to all this dog-eared innocence
         F                                   C               C/B2            Am
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next or how to be
             C  C/B2 Am    G3   F       \
But you have no i---de-a about me       /    2x
     C
Do you? 


-Bridge
           F                 C
So there's always a way around
                  F                      C
There's something tying our feet to the ground
          C/B2                     Am
A moment passed we hear how it sounds

         C       C/B2   Am  G3   F
Then it seems a little less profound
            C       C/B2    Am   G3    F
Like we're all going the same way down
            C    C/B2    Am   G3    F
Like we're all going the same way down
          C     C/B2     Am  G   F
I'm just trying to write it all down


-Verse 3
                C                    G2
'Cause I write songs and you write letters
         F                G2
We are tied like two in tethers
         C                   G2
And we talk and read, and laugh and sleep
     F             G2
At night in bed together
          C             G2
And you wake in tears sometimes
                  F                      G2
I can see your thoughts flash across your eyes
          C                  G2
They say darling will you be kind, 
                   F               G
will you be a good man and stay behind 
          Am
If I get old?


-Outro 1
               F                G2
And then the letters all pass through my head
           C      C/B2      Am
With the words that I was told 
            F                G2
About the fading flesh of life and love
      C      C/B2    Am
The failures of the bold
       F                   G2
I can list each crippling fear 
           C      C/B2   Am
like I'm reading from a will

          C   C/B2  Am      G3        F
And I'll defy every-one and love you still
        C    C/B2     Am     G3     F
I will carry you with me up every hill
           Am           C/B3                 C      C/B3     Am
And if you die before I die I'll carve your name out of the sky
     Am                    C/B3        C        C/B3       Am
I'll fall asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie

-Interlude
         F           G2              C              C/B2                Am
Maybe better to move on and to let life just carry on and I may be wrong


-Outro 2
          C
Still I try
               F        G2               C      C/B2      Am                             
Because it's better to love, whether you win or lose or die
               F        G2               C      C/B2      Am                             
Because it's better to love, whether you win or lose or die
      C         G2               C      C/B2       Am
It's better to love, and I will love you 'til I die

Ends on C
