You and I

Standard tuning

Am – G

Every now and then, E – F G E

You and I are like soldiers
When the conversation comes around
Except I don’t think that soldiers
Take pleasure in shooting each other down

And when the skirmish is over
We each head back to base
Count the hits that we won and we lost
I count that look on your face.

You and I are like miners
We just keep chipping away
Except I don’t think that miners
Keep chipping when there’s nothing left to take

Though our mine is empty now
It’s as dark as it ever was
And it’s hard to breathe down there
We still go down, just because

You and I are like lovers
Long since fallen out of love
And with nowhere to move on to
Just trying to remember how it was

Well I remember your smile
And I remember your eyes
And I remember the love that you gave me
And I remember when it died
