Tabbed by Steve Garner (s_garner@hotmail.com)


Intro: G


Verse #1:

C                  G    G/F#    Em
When you find yourself falling down
 Am             Am7              C                          D    
Your hopes in the sky but your heart like grape gum on the ground
      C         G     G/F#  Em
And you try to find yourself
     Am                Am7             Cmaj7  C             D   
In the abstractions of religion and the cruelty of everyone else
      C       G  G/F#  Em
And you wake up to realize
   Am             Am7        C                   D  
Your standard of living somehow got stuck on survive


Chorus #1:

             G       G/F#     Em
When you're standing in deep water
C                            D   
Bailing yourself out with a straw
               G         G/F#     Em
And when you're drowning in deep water
            C                    D   
And you wake up making love to a wall
          G            G/F#       Em
Well it's these little times that help to remind
      C        D       Em
It's nothing without love


Verse #2:

C         G    G/F#    Em
You realize your only friend
   Am          Am7          C                       D  
Has never been yourself or anyone who cared in the end
            C           G        G/F#   Em
That's when everything fades or falls away
           Am               Am7          
'Cause the chains which once held us 
          Cmaj7  C               D
are only the chains which we've made


Chorus #2:

                 G     G/F#    Em
And when you're standing in deep water
            C                           D
And you're bailing yourself out with a straw
               G         G/F#     Em
And when you're drowning in deep water
            C                     D
And you wake up making love to a wall
          G            G/F#        Em
Well it's these little times that help to remind
       C       D      G   G/F#  Em
It's nothing without love love love
       C       D      Em
It's nothing without love


Bridge:

Am                     G         Am               G
We've compromised our pride and sacrificed our health
Am                     C
We must demand more not from each other
Em            D   Dsus4  D
But more from ourselves


Chorus #3:

                    G       G/F#    Em
'Cause when you're standing in deep water
             C                          D
And you're bailing yourself out with a straw
                G        G/F#     Em
And when you're drowning in deep water
            C                     D
And you wake up making love to a wall
             G          G/F#      Em
Well it's these little times could help to remind
        C       D     G   G/F#   Em
It's nothing without love love love
        C            D    G   G/F#  Em
It's nothing without looooooooooooove
        C       D     Em
It's nothing without love


Outro:

  G         C            Em
Da  dom  dah  da  de  dum
 G          C            Em
Nothing without love, without love (la de dah)
 G          C            Em
Nothing without love, without love (la de dah) . . . . .

And you try
