Love For A Child

	  Play an A chord for the intro 

           A 
There's a picture on my kitchen wall 
            C#m 
Looks like Jesus and his friends involved 
          F#                           Bm 
There's a party getting started in the yard 
          Bm              Dm            A        C#m       F#m 
There's a couple getting steamy in the car parked in the drive 
   Bm                               Esus4   E 
Was I too young to see this with my eyes? 

        A 
By the pool last night, apparently 
     C#m 
The chemicals weren't mixed properly 
    F#                                  Bm 
You hit your head and then forgot your name 
              Bm             Dm              A     C#m    F#m 
And then you woke up at the bottom by the drain 
              Bm                      Esus4    E 
And now your altitude and memory's a shame 


A            Bm7        C#m7           Bm7 
 What about taking this empty cup and filling it up 
         A                      Bm7        
With a little bit more of some innocence 
   C#m7                    Bm7                            A 
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young 
       C#7        D       Dm7 
It's okay to be easily ignored 
Dm7                       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string) 
I like to believe it was all about 
             A  
love for a child 

                               C#m 
And when the house was left in shambles 
                    F#                          Bm 
Who was there to handle all the broken bits of glass 
       Bm             Dm              A         C#m        F#m 
Was it mom who put my dad out on his ass or the other way around 
         Bm                              Esus4   E 
Well I'm far too old to care about that now 


A            Bm7        C#m7           Bm7 
 What about taking this empty cup and filling it up 
         A                      Bm7        
With a little bit more of innocence 
   C#m7                    Bm7                            A 
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young 
       C#7        D       Dm7 
It's okay to be easily ignored 
Dm7                       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string) 
I'd like to believe it was all about  
             A 
love for a child 


G              Bm                A                C#m 
   It's kinda nice to work the floor since the divorce 
             G                Bm                          A 
I've been enjoying both my Christmases and my birthday cakes 
     G                Bm             A              C#m 
And taking drugs and making love at far too young an age 
          G 
and they never check to see my grades 
        E                       E/G#      A 
What a fool I'd be to start complaining now 


A            Bm7        C#m7           Bm7 
 What about taking this empty cup and filling it up 
         A                      Bm7        
With a little bit more of innocence 
   C#m7                    Bm7                            A 
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young 
       C#7        D       Dm7 
It's okay to be easily ignored 
Dm7                       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string) 
I'd love to believe it's all about  
             A 
love for a child 
       (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)   A 
It was all about love...
