Intro
D Dsus2 D Dsus2 A7sus (repeat 4x)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
