Limits to Love lyrics

Pre>
***intro:
Em d/f# g c
Em d c g

*** verse: 1
Em d/f# g c
We've known her ever since she was a kid
Em d c g
She was the kind of girl who repeats her mistakes
Em d/f# g c
Her parents never minded what she did
Em d c g
She was a fallen angel with dirt on her face
Am g/b c d
But past a certain point she stayed behind
Am g/b c d
The two of us could never read her mind
Am g/b c d
The million ways she had of killing time

*** chorus:
Em d c
So we just gave up
Em d c
Yeah we just gave up
Em d
'cause sometimes, you know
C g
There's limits to love
C g c g

*** verse 2:
We'd get impatient with her now and then em d/f# g c
Oh, she'd smile and say, 'now you're not being nice.' em d c g
I guess her definition of a friend em d/f# g c
Was someone long on love, and short on advice em d c g
We gave her money but the money's bad am g/b c d
She took the dollars and just tore them in half am g/b c d
We got so angry, we just had to laugh am g/b c d

*** chorus:
But we still gave up em d c
Yeah we still gave up em d c
'cause sometimes, you know em d
There's limits to love c g | c g | c g

*** instrumental:

** verse 3:
She'll get in trouble but she will scrape through em d/f# g c
Oh, she's the kind of girl who can always find help em d c g
I'd say she's stupid, but it'd be untrue em d/f# g c
Oh, you've got to be smart if you're fooling yourself em d c g
We tried to love her, but our love unwound am g/b c d
(so our love was weak)
We talked about her when she wasn't around am g/b c d
(so our talk was cheap)
And still we felt that we were letting her down am g/b c d

*** chorus:
'cause we just gave up em d c
Yeah we just gave up em d c
'cause sometimes, you know em d
There's limits to love c g

Sometimes you know em d
There's limits to love c g

||: em d c g | c g c g :||
