Love song

Sara Bareilles

 GmBb
 Head under water,
 DmFGm
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while. 
 BbDmF
The breathing gets harder, even I know that.
 GmBbDm
 You made room for me but it's too soon to see,
 FGm
If I'm happy in your hands.
 BbDmF
I'm unusually hard to hold on to.  

 GmF/ABb
 Blank stares at blank pages.  
 CGm
No easy way to say this.  
 F/ABb
You mean well, but you make this hard on me.

 Gm
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
 C
'Cause you asked for it,
 F/ABb
'Cause you need one, you see. 
 Gm
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
 C
'Cause you tell me it's,
 F/A
Make or breaking this.
 Bb
If you're on your way,
 GmBb
I'm not gonna write you to stay.
 Dm
If all you have is leaving,
 G7/BBbC
I'm gonna need a better reason to write you a love song today.

I learned the hard way,
That they all say things you want to hear.
My heavy heart sinks deep down under you,
And your twisted words, your help just hurts.
You are not what I thought you were.
Hello to high and dry.

Convinced me to please you.
Made me think that I need this too.
I'm trying to let you hear me as I am.

I'm not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you asked for it,
'Cause you need one, you see.
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you tell me it's,
Make or breaking this.
If you're on your way,
I'm not gonna write you to stay.
If all you have is leaving,
I'm gonna need a better reason to write you a love song today.

 DmAmBbFDm
    Promise me    you'll leave the light on,  
 AmBbFDm
To help me see    with daylight, my guide, gone. 
 AmBbC
'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me because I say,

I won't write you a love song,
'Cause you asked for it,
'Cause you need one you see.
I'm not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this.
Is that why you wanted a love song,
'Cause you asked for it,
'Cause you need one you see.

I'm not gonna write you a love song,
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this.
If you're on your way,
I'm not gonna write you to stay.
If your heart is nowhere in it,
I don't want it for a minute.
Babe, I'll walk the seven seas
When I believe that there's a reason to,
Write you a love song today.
