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

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

             D#                         A#                         D#
Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I 
                       A#                            Cm   
can tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be. 
             D# A#/D  Cm  A# G#     D#
But you have no idea about me, do you?

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


             D#                         A#                         D#
Bye bye bye bye, bye bye to all this dogged innocence. I cant pretend that I 
                       A#                             Cm               
can tell you what is going to happen next, or how to be. 
             D# A#/D Cm A# G#           D# A#/D Cm A# G#       D#
But you have no idea about me, you have no idea about me, do you?

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

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

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

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

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