Intro: C    D    Dsus    G   C9  G  C9

Verse 1:

C                      D                   G        C9 G C9
   Somewhere between right and wrong is a love song
C                        D
   Its tongue hits the target, 
                          G          C9   G   C9
But its phone number is always wrong
C                      D          G     D/F#    Em
   It speaks through calluses of gent - ler   things
         C         D
   It speaks of kindness
                 G         D/F#            Em
But I don't think you know what that word means
      C          D               G        D/F#     Em
Your love is a bitter seed that only the blind can see
    C                 D   Dsus   D   Dsus
If this is what love is
 C9  C9**    C               D                G  C9 G C9
Then  I    guess there's no love song left in me

Verse 2:

C                      D                   G     C9 G C9
   Somewhere between right and wrong is reality
C                         D                       
Justice and shame speak foolishly 
       G               C9   G   C9
Of impractical things
       C                     D
Your kisses are as kind as candles
       G           D/F#       Em
Your hands are as giving as stone
      C                D
Your mind as kind as Hitler's 
       G                 D/F#    Em
Until night leaves you feeling alone
      C          D               G       D/F#   Em
Your love is something that must do but never   be
    C                 D   Dsus   D   Dsus
If this is what love is
C9  C9**    C               D                G  C9 G C9
Then I    guess there's no love song left in me

Bridge:

Bm 
I didn't mean to fall into darkness
               C 
I just trip in   the light
Bm
Cause oh man it's hard to see that clearly 
            C
And not put up a fight
Bm                    
   I knew then I would break and not bend
C
  Just look at this trouble I'm in
              D    Dsus  D  Dsus
I need to realize
                                  G  C9  G  C9
This is how the unhappy half dies

Verse 3:

C                      D 
   Somewhere between good and bad 
            G                 C9   G   C9
Is every lie I've ever been told
C                              D
  When it all comes down your good deeds don't count
            G             C9   G   C9
It's what cards you hold
C                                D
   Well I'm tired of your grey laughter
     G             D/F#   Em
I'm tired of your hungry eyes
       C          D            G          D/F#       Em
This love is so rotten it's starting to attract the flies
      C          D               G        D/F#      Em
Your love is a bitter seed that only the blind can see
     C         D       G        D/F#   Em
Its blade is made of jealousy and insecurity
       C            D            G       D/F#   Em
Your love is something that must do but never   be
    C                 D   Dsus   D   Dsus
If this is what love is
    C                 D   Dsus   D   Dsus
If this is what love is
C9  C9**    C               D                G  C9 G C9 G** G
Then I    guess there's no love song left in me
