Didn't see a complete version with the C -> Am transition on line three, so though I repost

C                        G           C
Love writes a letter and sends it to hate.
   F                                 C
My vacations ending. I'm coming home late.
    F           G            C     B/C Am
The weather was fine and the ocean was great
      C             G       F        
and I can't wait to see you again.

C                         G         C
Hate reads the letter and throws it away.
F                                   C
"No one here cares if you go or you stay.
  F           G            C        B/C Am
I barely even noticed that you were a---way.
     C            G      F 
I'll see you or I won't, whatever."

C                        G                 C
Love sings a song as she sails through the sky.
    F                                    C
The water looks bluer through her pretty eyes.
    F        G            C    B/C Am
And everyone knows it whenever she flies,
    C         G         F 
and also when she comes down.

C                          G                 C
Hate keeps his head up and walks through the street.
F                             C
Every stranger and drifter he greets.
    F                 G     C     B/C Am
And shakes hands with every loner he  meets
       C       G           F 
with a serious look on his face.

C                        G           C
Love arrives safely with suitcase in tow.
F                                    C
Carrying with her the good things we know.
  F         G          C      B/C Am
A reason to live and a reason to  grow.
   C         G        F 
To trust. To hope. To care.

C                      G           C
Hate sits alone on the hood of his car.
    F                                  C
Without much regard to the moon or the stars.
F      G           C       B/C Am
Lazily killing the last of a   jar
       C         G             F 
of the strongest stuff you can drink.

C                    G         C
Love takes a taxi, a young man drives.
   F                                   C
As soon as he sees her, hope fills his eyes.
    F            G             C      B/C Am
But tears follow after, at the end of the ride,
         C           G        F 
cause he might never see her again.

C                       G         C
Hate gets home lucky to still be alive.
   F                                      C
He screams o'er the sidewalk and into the drive.
    F            G            C      B/C Am
The clock in the kitchen says two fifty  five,
        C            G          F 
And the clock in the kitchen is slow.

C                      G           C
Love has been waiting, patient and kind.
     F                                    C
Just wanting a phone call or some kind of sign,
         F            G                C      B/C Am
That the one that she cares for, who's out of his mind,
     C            G           F 
Will make it back safe to her arms.

C                         G            C
Hate stumbles forward and leans in the door.
F                            C
Weary head hung, eyes to the floor.
         F         G           C          B/C  Am
He says "Love, I'm sorry", and she says, "What for?
    C               G   F 
I'm your and that's it, Whatever.

  F               G    C        B/C  Am
I should not have been gone for so   long.
    C                 G   F
I'm yours and that's it, forever."
       C               G   F
You're mine and that's it, forever.
