[Intro]
Dm  C  A#
Dm  C  A#  C


[Verse]
               Dm          C          A#
Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
                Dm           C      F   A#
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
    Dm         C              A#                C
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?


[Pre-Chorus]
              Dm          C             A#
I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
              Dm          C        A#
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
      Dm            C           A#                      C
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words


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


[Verse]
                  Dm                 C            A#
I've been here so long, I think that it's time to move
                Dm             C    A#
The winter's so cold, summer's over too soon
Dm             C        A#                        C
Let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow
               Dm                C        A#
I've got some friends, some that I hardly know
                   Dm                C             A#
But we've had some times, I wouldn't trade for the world
               Dm             C            A#              C
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go


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


[Interlude]
Dm  C  A#  C  4x
C


[Pre-Chorus]
              Dm          C             A#
I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
              Dm          C        A#
Let's compare scars, I'll tell you whose is worse
      Dm            C           A#                      C
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words


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


[Outro]

Swing life away
Dm    C    A#

Dm    C    A#  C
Swing life away
Dm    C    A#     Dm  G~
