                Tuning - Standard

Key: A

Truly underappreciated song.  Sadly, I had to make a tab since there was none.  There 
instrumental parts between verses, but I omitted that for practical purposes of playing 
song by yourself.

        A
You can only talk so much about things
         D
that are never, ever going to happen.
   A
My brother’s at home with his dog and his cat
        D            E
and his wife is at a friend’s.
        A
You can only go on so long about feelings
     D
that never, ever actually touch you.
   A
No matter how much she told him “I love you,”
   D              E
he found it would depend
       Bm                   E    Esus4  E
on the gifts that he bought her,
       Bm            E    Esus4  E
or how badly she was hurt
         Bm                E    Esus4   E
when the boss was cruel at work.
              D                                       E
But he’d just say “I love you,” and he’d reach out to her.


       A
He was feeling like sh*t when I came to visit
    D
and walked through the door of his tiny apartment.
   A
We went for a walk through the park by the market
   D                 E
so we could get some air.
      A
And I told to him all things intended to help him,
 D
especially that, simply because it was ending,
     A
that that didn’t mean she was always pretending.
 D                 E
Real happiness was there.
        Bm              E     Esus4  E
I could see and I could tell:
       Bm                  E    Esus4  E
it was real love that they felt.
        Bm                  E    Esus4  E
And I’m sorry it didn’t end well,
         D                                                        E
but some things just don’t - that’s life, and you shouldn’t blame yourself.

    A
And all of these things, well, I truly believe them.
    D
Our paths and our futures are hidden in mists
         A
that are stretching out over impossible distances,
D          E
 totally obscured.
      A
And I really do think that there’s probably more good
     D
than anger or selfishness, sickness, or sadness
      A
would ever completely allow us to have in this
D                 E
life, I think I’m sure.
         Bm                E   Esus4  E
But that doesn’t mean it’s bad.
        Bm                  E   Esus4  E
We were walking towards our dad,
      Bm                         E   Esus4  E
while getting out of that school bus,
            D                                        E     A
and he just said “I love you,” and he reached out to us
