When Mikel plays the G chord in this song,
he only plucks the top 4 strings.
In the into and at some points in the song
he strums the D string and then strums the chord. 
This is subtle, but it makes the chord sound like 
a D chord at first. At other points in the song, 
he does strum the whole G chord. So it's tricky,
 but if you want it to be perfect, you can listen 
closely and see what I mean.

Another side note - The B/C, A/C, and G/C chords 
are C chords with B, A and G on the bottom instead of C. 
I'm sure they have more official names than that, but 
this will do for now. Let me know if you know what 
their official name is, and i'll add them in.

           C                                   G
The other day, when we were walking by the graveyard near the house, you 
          C                          Am          C   
asked me if I thought we would ever die. And if life and love both fade so 
    G                                C                   Am
predictably, we've made ourselves a kind of predictable life.

            C                             G                               C
And so I pictured us like corpses, lying side by side in pieces, in some dark 
                          Am                 C 
and lonely blood under a bow. We looked so silly there, all decomposed, half 
   G                                           Am                        
turned to dust, in tattered clothes, but we probably look just as silly now.

             C                         G                         C
Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I 
                       G                             Am               C  B/C
can tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be. But you have no i- 

A/C  G/C   F     C
dea about me, do you?

         C                               G
And it left me to wonder if people will ever know each other by just 
    C                                   Am              C
stumbling around like strangers in the dark. 'Cause sometimes you seem so 
                  G                                         C
strange to me, I must seem strange to you. We're like two actors playing our 
  Am              C                                            G
parts. Did you memorize your lines? 'Cause I did. Here's the part where I get 
           C                          Am                C               
so mad, I tell you I cant forget the past. You get so quiet now, and you 
                        G                                  C
seem, somehow, like a lost and lonely child. And you just hope that the 
             Am
moment wont last.


             C                         G                         C
Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I 
                       G                             Am               C  B/C
can tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be. But you have no i- 

A/C  G/C  F  C  B/C A/C  G/C  F      C    
dea about me, no i-  dea about me, do you?

             C            Am               C
So there's always a way around. There's something tying our feet to the 
  Am               G                      Am
ground. A moment passed, we hate how it sounds.

        C       B/C   A/C  G/C  F               C   B/C      A/C  G/C  F
And it seems a little less profound. Like we're all going the same way down. 
            C   B/C      A/C  G/C  F              C   B/C A/C   G/A    F        
Yeah we're all going the same way down. I'm just trying to write it all down.

                 C                     G             Am
'Cause I write songs, and you write letters. We are tied like two, in 
  G              C                   G                  Am
tethers. And we talk and read, and laugh and sleep, at night in bed, 
   G               C                 G            Am
together. And you wake in tears sometimes, I can see the thoughts flash 
             G                 C                   G               
across your eyes. They say "Darling, will you be kind? Will you be a good 
Am              G              Am
man, and stay behind if I get old?"

                C               G                         C        B/C
And then the letters all pass through my head, with the words that I was 
 Am               C               G                   C    B/C      Am
told. About the fading flesh of life and love, the failures of the bold. I 
      C                  G              C      B/C    Am
can list each crippling fear like I'm reading from a will.
          C  B/C  A/C      G/C        F             C  B/C      A/C    G/C
And I'll defy everyone and love you still. I will carry you with me up every 
 F           Am           B/C                   C   B/C        Am        Am
hill. If you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky. I'll fall 
                  B/C        C        B/C       Am
asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie.

            C            G              Am             G
It maybe better to move on, and to let life just carry on. And I may be 
 Am                     C
wrong. But still, I'll try.
              Am       B/C              C      B/C    Am                Am
'Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die. Yeah, It's better 
    B/C             C       B/C    Am         Am        B/C              C
to love whether you win or lose or die. It's better to love, and I will love 
     B/C    Am
you 'til I die.

End on C


This is an amazing song, closing an amazing album.
Hope you guys enjoy :)
