Intro Riff x 4

Verse 1:
D
I got the call today
      A
And I didn't want to hear
      G
But I knew that it would come
D
An old true friend of ours
    A
Was talking on the phone
               G
She said you'd found someone

      A
And I thought of all the bad luck
        A7
And the struggles we went through
    G
How I lost me, and you lost you
A
What are all these voices
   A7
Outside love's open door
        G
Make us throw off our contentment
    A
And beg for something more


Chorus:
D               A/E              Bm/F#
I'm learning to live without you now
      G
But I miss you sometimes
D                    Bm
The more I know, the less I understand
        G
All the things I thought I knew
    A
I'm learning again

D
I've been trying to get down
A/E
To the heart of the matter
       Bm/F#
But my will gets weak
G
And my thoughts seem to scatter
                 D
But I think it's about
             Bm
Forgiveness, Forgiveness
G                A
Even if, Even if you don't love me anymore

Intro Riff X2

(same pattern as first verse):
Ah these times are so uncertain
There's a yearning undefined
People filled with rage
We all need a little tenderness
How can love survive
In such a graceless age
Oh the trust and self-assurance
That lead to happiness
They're the very things we kill I guess
Oh pride and competition
Cannot fill these empty arms
And the work I put between us
You know it doesn't keep me warm

Chorus:
I'm learning to live without you now
But I miss you baby
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I figured out
I have to learn again

I've been trying to get down
To the heart of the matter
But everything changesgets weak
And my friends seem to scatter
But I think it's about
Forgiveness, Forgiveness
Even if, Even if you don't love me anymore

(instead of riff 1, play 2 bars of D)

Bridge:
          C
There are people in your life
G/B
Who've come and gone
     Am
They let you down
              G
You know they hurt your pride
C
You better put it all behind you babe
     G/B
'Cuz life goes on
         A
You keep carrying that anger

It'll eat you up inside baby


Chorus:
I've been trying to get down
To the heart of the matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it's about
Forgiveness, Forgiveness
Even if, Even if you don't love me

I've been trying to get down
To the heart of the matter
Because the flesh will get weak
And the ashes will scatter
But I think it's about
Forgiveness, Forgiveness
Even if, Even if you don't love me

(follow pattern of chorus and fade out)

Who can show me what laughter means
And we'll fill in the missing colors
In each others paint-by-number dreams"		-- Jackson Browne

But my sorrows they learned to swim"		-- U2
