Love for a Child  Jason Mraz

capo on 8 !
i'm pretty sure that the capo is on 8.. adjust it to your liking. :)
i came up with these chords myself, so they might be a little off.
[D]There's a picture on my kitchen wall
Looks like J[F#m]esus and his friends involved
There's a p[D7]arty getting started in the y[G]ard
There's a co[Gm]uple getting steamy in the c[D]ar parked in the d[F#m]rive
Was [Em]I too young to see this with my e[A]yes?
By the p[D]ool last night, apparently
The ch[F#m]emicals weren't mixed properly
You [D7]hit your head and then forgot your [G]name
And then you [Gm]woke up at the bottom by the d[D]rain[F#m]
And now your al[Em]titude and memory's a s[A]hame
[D]What about taking this e[F#m]mpty cup and filling it up
With a li[D7]ttle bit more of innocence
I h[Em]aven't had enough, it's pr[A]obably because when you're y[D]oung
It's [F#m]okay to be e[D7]asily ig[G]nored
[Em]I like to believe it was a[A7]ll about love for a [D]child
And when the house was left in s[F#m]hambles
Who was there to h[D7]andle all the broken bits of g[G]lass
Was it [Gm]mom who put my dad out on his [D]ass or the other way a[F#m]round
Well I'm [Em]far too old to care about that n[A]ow
[D]What about taking this e[F#m]mpty cup and filling it up
With a l[D7]ittle bit more of innocence
I h[Em]aven't had enough, it's p[A]robably because when you're y[D]oung
It's o[F#m]kay to be e[D7]asily i[G]gnored
[Em]I'd like to believe it was [A7]all about love for a child
[G]It's kinda nice to work the f[D]loor since the d[F#m]ivorce
I've been en[G]joying both my Christmases and my bi[D]rthday cakes
And ta[G]king drugs and making love at f[D]ar too young an [F#m]age
And they n[Em]ever check to see my grades
What a f[A7]ool I'd be to start complaining now
[D]What about taking this e[F#m]mpty cup and filling it up
With a l[D7]ittle bit more of innocence
I ha[Em]ven't had enough, it's pr[A]obably because when you're y[D]oung
It's [F#m]okay to be e[D7]asily ig[G]nored
[Em]I'd love to believe it's [A7]all about love for a c[D]hild
It was [A7]all about love...
