C                                         Cadd9
The other day, when we were walking by the graveyard near the house,
            G                             Am
You asked me if I thought we would ever die.
C                                    Cadd9
And if life and love both fade so predictably,
                     G                     Am
We've made ourselves a kind of predictable life.
        C                                          Cadd9
And so I pictured us like corpses, lying side by side in pieces,
        G                                  Am
In some dark and lonely blood under a bow.
           C                                    Cadd9
We looked so silly there, all decomposed, half turned to dust,
                                 G                        Am
In tattered clothes, but we probably look just as silly now.
       C                               Cadd9
Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence.
       G                                   F
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next,
     Am
Or how to be.
C Cmaj9  Am  G F                     C
But you have no idea about me, do you?
       C                                Cadd9
And it left me to wonder if people will ever know each other
      G                                     Am
By just stumbling around like strangers in the dark.
   C
'Cause sometimes you seem so strange to me,
Cadd9
I must seem strange to you.
            G                     Am
We're like two actors playing our parts.
       C
Did you memorize your lines?
                           Cadd9
'Cause I did. Here's the part where I get so mad,
  G                           Am
I tell you I can't forget the past.
         C
You get so quiet now, and you seem, somehow,
  Cadd9
Like a lost and lonely child.
            G                               Am
And you just hope that the moment won't last.
      C                                  Cadd9
Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence.
  G                                      F
I can't pretend that I can tell you what is going to happen next,
    Am
Or how to be.
C Cmaj9  Am  G F
But you have no idea about me.
C  Cmaj9  Am  G  F          C
You have no idea about me, do you?
     F                     C
So there's always a way around.
     F                               C
There's something tying our feet to the ground,
    F                               Am
A moment passed, we hate how it sounds.
C  Cmaj9  Am  G  F
And it seems a little less profound,
C  Cmaj9  Am  G  F
Like we're all going the same way down.
C  Cmaj9  Am  G  F
Yeah we're all going the same way down,
C  Cmaj9  Am  G  F
I'm just trying to write it all down.
          C                                   G
'Cause I write songs, and you write letters,
       F                            G
We are tied like two, in tethers.
      F                         G                F                   G          
And we talk and read, and laugh and sleep, at night in bed, together.
   F                G
And you wake in tears sometimes,
       F                  G
I can see the thoughts flash across your eyes.
     F                           G
They say "Darling, will you be kind?
                   F              G                  Am
Will you be a good man, and stay behind if I get old?"
            F                G
And then the letters all pass through my head,
C  Cmaj9      Am
With the words that I was told,
    F                          G                 
About the fading flesh of life and love, 
C  Cmaj9  Am
the failures of the bold.
    F                  G
I can list each crippling fear l
C  Cmaj9     Am
ike I'm reading from a will.
  C  Cmaj9   Am  G  F
And I'll defy everyone and love you still,
  C  Cmaj9   Am  G  F
I will carry you with me up every hill.
      C               G                 C  Cmaj9       Am
And if you die before I die, I'll carve your name out of the sky,
  F                G                 C  Cmaj9         Am
I'll fall asleep with your memory and dream of where you lie.
   F                       G                 C              G
It may be better to move on, and to let life just carry on,
            Am
And I may be wrong.
         C
But still, I'll try.
   F                G                    C  Cmaj9  Am
'Cause it's better to love whether you win or lose or die,
  F                 G                    C  Cmaj9  Am
Yeah, It's better to love whether you win or lose or die.
  F                 G          C    Cmaj9         Am  C
It's better to love, and I will love you 'til I die.
