                       Em            Bm                C  
It's not the long, flowing dress that you're in  
                 Em           Bm                 C  
Or the light coming off of your skin  
             C                                                      G  
The fragile heart you protected for so long  
                C                                                  G    D 
Or the mercy in your sense of right and wrong  
               Em              Bm                               C  
It's not your hands searching slow in the dark  
         Em                      Bm                  C  
Or your nails leaving love's watermark  
                   C                                     G 
It's not the way you talk me off the roof  
                  C                                           G    D  
Your questions like directions to the truth  

C G It's knowing that this can't go on forever C G D Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone C G Maybe we'll get forty years together D C But one day I'll be gone C G D Or one day you'll be gone
verse 2 Em Bm C If we were vampires and death was a joke Em B C We'd go out on the sidewalk and smoke C Am Em Laugh at all the lovers and their plans C Am G I wouldn't feel the need to hold your hand Em Bm C Maybe time running out is a gift Em Bm C I'll work hard 'til the end of my shift C G And give you every second I can find C G D And hope it isn't me who's left behind
C G It's knowing that this can't go on forever C G D Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone C G Maybe we'll get forty years together D C But one day I'll be gone C G D Or one day you'll be gone C G It's knowing that this can't go on forever C G D Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone C G Maybe we'll get forty years together D C But one day I'll be gone C G D Or one day you'll be gone
