[Intro]
D  Dsus2  D  Dsus2  A7sus (repeat 4x)

[Verse 1]
D                       A
I got the call today, I didn't wanna hear
      G
But I knew that it would come
D                              A
An old true friend of ours was talkin' on the phone
             G
She said you found someone
      A
And I thought of all the bad luck,

And the struggles we went through
    G
How I lost me and you lost you
A
What are these voices outside love's open door
        G
Make us throw off our contentment
    Asus              A
And beg for something more?

[Chorus 1]
D                     Em7              D/F#
I've been learning to live without you now
      G
But I miss you sometimes
D                    Bm
The more I know, the less I understand
        G                            Asus     A
All the things I thought I knew, I'm learning again
D                            Em7
I've been tryin' to get down to the heart of the matter
       D/F#
But my will gets weak
G
And my thoughts seem to scatter
                     D
But I think it's a - bout forgiveness
Bm
Forgiveness
G                A                         D  Dsus2  D  Dsus2  A7sus  (repeat 2x)
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

[Verse 2]
      D
These times are so uncertain
          A
There's a yearning undefined
    G
And people filled with rage
D
We all need a little tenderness
A                       G
How can love survive in such a graceless age
A
And the trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness
G
They're the very things we kill, I guess
A
Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms
        G
And the work I put between us
            Asus            A
You know it doesn't keep me warm

[Chorus 2]
D               Em7              D/F#
I'm learning to live without you now
      G
But I miss you, baby
D                                     Bm
The more I know, the less I understand
        G                                 Asus          A
All the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again
D                            Em7
I've been tryin' to get down to the heart of the matter
D/F#
But everything changes
G
And my friends seem to scatter
                     D
But I think it's a - bout forgiveness
Bm
Forgiveness
G                A                         D  G  D
Even if, even if you don't love me anymore

[Bridge]
          C                          G
There are people in your life who've come and gone
     Am                               G/B
They let you down, you know they hurt your pride
    C                                    G
You better put it all behind you, baby; ‘cause life goes on
A
You keep carryin' that anger, it'll eat you up inside, baby

[Chorus 3]
D                             Em7
I’ve been tryin’ to get down, to the heart of the matter
D/F#
But my will gets weak
G
And my thoughts seem to scatter
                     D
But I think it's a - bout forgiveness
Bm
Forgiveness
G                A
Even if, even if you don't love me

[Final Chorus]
D                            Em7
I've been tryin' to get down to the heart of the matter
D/F#
Because the flesh will get weak
G
And the ashes will scatter
                     D
So, I'm thinkin' a - bout forgiveness
Bm
Forgiveness
G                A
Even if, even if you don't love me
 D            Em7          D/F#
(Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness,
G            D            Bm
forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness)
G       A 
Even if you don't love me anymore

[Outro]
D  Dsus2  D  Dsus2  A7sus (repeat 2x)
D


This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since
U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have
included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to
experiment with your own chord voicings.

About the artist behind Heart Of The Matter:

The Eagles are an American rock band that was formed in Los Angeles, California, in the early 1970s. With five Number 1 singles and six Number 1 albums, the Eagles were one of the most successful recording artists of the decade. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 and Hotel California, ranked among the ten best-selling albums according to the Recording Industry Association of America. The best-selling studio album Hotel California is rated as the thirty-seventh album in the Rolling Stone list "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", and the band was ranked number 75 on Rolling Stone's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[1] They are also the best-selling American group ever, with Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 being the best-selling album in the U.S. to date.[2][3]

The Eagles broke up in 1980, but reunited in 1994 for Hell Freezes Over, a mix of live and new studio tracks. They have toured intermittently since then, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

In 2007, the Eagles released Long Road out of Eden, their first full studio album in 28 years.
