[Verse I]
               Em7         Dsus4      C9
Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
                 Em7         G         C9
Am I still your charm, or am I just ba--d luck?
    Em7          G            C9                 Dadd9    (pause)
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting mo--re lost?
              Em7          Dsus4          C9
I'll show you mine; if you show me yours first
               Em7        G          C9
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you who's, is worse
      Em7            G           C9                   Dadd9
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own.... words

[Chorus]
    Em7           C9           G         Asus4
We live on front porches and swing life away,
   Em7          C9           G       Asus4
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
   Em7        C9          G            Asus4
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
   Em7                C9          Asus4        Dsus4    (Pause)
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand

[Verse]
                  Em7                Dsus4         C9
I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
                Em7                G     C9
The winter's so cold, the summer's over too - – soon
   Em7             G       C9                       Dadd9    (Pause)
So let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow
                Em7             Dsus4       C9
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
                    Em7               G             C9
But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
               Em7             Dsus4       C9               Dadd9
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will.... go

[Chorus]
    Em7           C9           G         Asus4
We live on front porches and swing life away,
   Em7          C9           G       Asus4
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
   Em7        C9          G            Asus4
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
   Em7                C9          Asus4        Dsus4
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
      Asus4        Dsus4
until you hold my hand

[Solo]
Em7 - G - C9 - Dsus4  |  2
Em7 - G - C9 - Dadd4  |  times
Dadd4 (Pause)

             *Em7         *Dsus4         *C9
I'll show you mine; if you show me yours first
              *Em7       *G         *C9
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you who's, is worse
      Em7            G           C9                   Dadd9
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own.... words

[Chorus]
    Em7           C9           G         Asus4
We live on front porches and swing life away,
   Em7          C9           G       Asus4
We get by just fine here on minimum wage
   Em7        C9          G            Asus4
If love is a labor I'll slave till the end,
   Em7                C9          Asus4        Dsus4
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand
