	  		Another one of these amazing simple songs that are Josh's magic. I use a pretty standard 
Travis with a few hammer-ons here and there.  

th fret 

C 
You got a lot of lovers with star-crossed wrists 
     C 
They keep a candle burning on the corner you kissed. 
   Fmaj7                                            C 
One day I might die, until then there's too much to do 
    G           G7          C 
But I'll keep a bonfire for you. 

     C 
I've seen the pretty boys that you're keeping around 
  C 
I know how it goes, I've got a girl in town. 
        Fmaj7                                C 
And she likes me enough to do what I like to do. 
     G           G7          C 
But, I'll keep a bonfire for you. 

        Em 
Let the other lovers talk about who carries the torch 
         F                                            C 
Let them talk about the beauty that they carry it for 
        Em 
Let the other lovers talk about who got what 
       F                           C 
And who got burned and who got cut 

     C 
I'll be in the orchard when you get tired 
C 
Day after day of the shouts from the choir 
Fmaj7  
Eating the apples and eating the peaches, too 
    G             G7          C  
And waiting by my bonfire for you. 

       C 
In the dark anybody will do for love 
          C 
But you're the only one I want when the sun comes up 
   Fmaj7                                   C 
No burning ball of fire set in the sky will do 
  G          G7             C 
Next to my bonfire for you. 

       Em 
Let the other lovers talk about who carries the torch 
        F 
Let them talk about the beauty that they carry it for 
        Em 
Let the other lovers talk about who got what 
    F 
And who got burned and who got cut 

  C 
I need a little motion, need a little relief 
    C 
I get a little lonely at the end of the week 
      Fmaj7                                    C 
And I want it so bad and if you want it so bad, too 
         G                 G7         C 
I'll be over here with my bonfire for you. 

You got a lot of lovers with star-crossed wrists 
They keep a candle burning on the corner you kissed. 
One day I might die, until then there's too much to do 
But I'll keep a bonfire for you.
