    Intro Riff x 4
    Verse 1:
    D
    I got the call today 
    A
    And I didn't want to hear 
    G
    But I knew that it would come 
    D
    An old true friend of ours 
    A
    Was talking on the phone 
    G
    She said you'd found someone 
    A
    And I thought of all the bad luck 
    A7
    And the struggles we went through 
    G
    How I lost me, and you lost you 
    A
    What are all these voices 
    A7
    Outside love's open door 
    G
    Make us throw off our contentment 
    A
    And beg for something more 
    Chorus:
    DA/EBm/F#
    I'm learning to live without you now 
    G
    But I miss you sometimes 
    DBm
    The more I know, the less I understand 
    G
    All the things I thought I knew 
    A
    I'm learning again 
    D
    I've been trying to get down 
    A/E
    To the heart of the matter 
    Bm/F#
    But my will gets weak 
    G
    And my thoughts seem to scatter 
    D
    But I think it's about 
    Bm
    Forgiveness, Forgiveness 
    GA
    Even if, Even if you don't love me anymore 
    Intro Riff X2
    (same pattern as first verse):
    Ah these times are so uncertain
    There's a yearning undefined
    People filled with rage
    We all need a little tenderness
    How can love survive
    In such a graceless age
    That lead to happiness
    They're the very things we kill I guess
    Oh pride and competition
    Cannot fill these empty arms
    And the work I put between us
    You know it doesn't keep me warm
    Chorus:
    I'm learning to live without you now
    But I miss you baby
    The more I know, the less I understand
    All the things I thought I figured out
    I have to learn again
    I've been trying to get down
    To the heart of the matter
    But everything changesgets weak
    And my friends seem to scatter
    But I think it's about
    Forgiveness, Forgiveness
    Even if, Even if you don't love me anymore
    (instead of riff 1, play 2 bars of D)
    Bridge:
    C
    There are people in your life 
    G/B
    Who've come and gone 
    Am
    They let you down 
    G
    You know they hurt your pride 
    C
    You better put it all behind you babe 
    G/B
    'Cuz life goes on 
    A
    You keep carrying that anger 
    It'll eat you up inside baby
    Chorus:
    I've been trying to get down
    To the heart of the matter
    But my will gets weak
    And my thoughts seem to scatter
    But I think it's about
    Forgiveness, Forgiveness
    Even if, Even if you don't love me
    I've been trying to get down
    To the heart of the matter
    Because the flesh will get weak
    And the ashes will scatter
    But I think it's about
    Forgiveness, Forgiveness
    Even if, Even if you don't love me
