Love For A Child

Song Author Jason Mraz Submitted by: Anonymous
[A]    
There's a p[A]icture on my kitchen wall
Looks like J[C#m]esus and his friends involved
There's a [F#]party getting started in the [Bm]yard   
There's a [Bm]couple getting s[Dm]teamy in the c[A]ar parked[C#m] in the dr[F#m]ive    
Was[Bm] I too young to see this with my [Esus4]eyes? [E]    

By the p[A]ool last night, apparently
The c[C#m]hemicals weren't mixed properly
You [F#]hit your head and then forgot your n[Bm]ame   
And then you w[Bm]oke up at the b[Dm]ottom by the dra[A]in [C#m]    [F#m]    
And now your a[Bm]ltitude and memory's a s[Esus4]hame [E]    


[A] What about t[Bm7]aking this [C#m7]empty cup and f[Bm7]illing it up
With a li[A]ttle bit more of some i[Bm7]nnocence
I h[C#m7]aven't had enough, it's [Bm7]probably because when you're yo[A]ung  
It's ok[C#7]ay to be ea[D]sily ign[Dm7]ored    
Dm7 (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)
I like to believe it was all about
love for a ch[A]ild  

And when the house was left in [C#m]shambles
Who was there to han[F#]dle all the broken bits of g[Bm]lass   
Was it [Bm]mom who put my [Dm]dad out on his a[A]ss or the [C#m]other way a[F#m]round    
Well I'm [Bm]far too old to care about that n[Esus4]ow [E]    


[A] What about t[Bm7]aking this [C#m7]empty cup and f[Bm7]illing it up
With a li[A]ttle bit more of innoce[Bm7]nce    
I h[C#m7]aven't had enough, it's [Bm7]probably because when you're yo[A]ung  
It's ok[C#7]ay to be ea[D]sily ign[Dm7]ored    
Dm7 (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)
I'd like to believe it was all about
love for a ch[A]ild  


[G] It's kinda n[Bm]ice to work the fl[A]oor since the div[C#m]orce    
I've been enj[G]oying both my Chr[Bm]istmases and my birthday cak[A]es  
And t[G]aking drugs and m[Bm]aking love at f[A]ar too young an[C#m] age    
and they n[G]ever check to see my grades
What a f[E]ool I'd be to start comp[E/G#]laining no[A]w  


[A] What about t[Bm7]aking this [C#m7]empty cup and f[Bm7]illing it up
With a li[A]ttle bit more of innoce[Bm7]nce    
I h[C#m7]aven't had enough, it's [Bm7]probably because when you're yo[A]ung  
It's ok[C#7]ay to be ea[D]sily ign[Dm7]ored    
Dm7 (D E F-walk-up notes on the A string)
I'd love to believe it's all about
love for a ch[A]ild  
(D E F-walk-up notes on the A string) A
It was all about love...



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

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

What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
With a little bit more of some innocence
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
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
love for a child

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

What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
With a little bit more of innocence
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
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
love for a child

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

What about taking this empty cup and filling it up
With a little bit more of innocence
I haven't had enough, it's probably because when you're young
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
love for a child
(D E F-walk-up notes on the A string) A
It was all about love...
