Verse 1
Gm         Bb
head under water
         Dm
and they tell me
            F
to breathe easy for a while
Gm                 Bb
but breathing gets harder
     Dm       F
even i know that

Gm                Bb
you made room for me
                    Dm
but its too soon to see
       F
if im happy in your hands
Gm     Bb                 Dm     F
im unusually hard to hold on to

Prechorus:
Gm           Am
blank stares at blank pages
Bb      Am
no easy way to say this
Gm          Am                    Bb
you mean well,  but you make this hard on me

Chorus:
                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you asked for it
            F            Bb
'cause you need one, you see
                          Gm
i'm not gonna write you a love song
           C
'cause you tell me it's
         F
make or break in this
        Bb
if you're on your way
               Gm           F
i'm not gonna write you to stay
   Dm                           G/B
if all you have is leavin' im'a need a better reason
   Bb            C            Gm  Bb  Dm  F
to write you a love song today

Verse 2 (Same as verse 1)
i learned the hard way
that they all say
things you wanna hear
and my heavy heart
sings deep down under you
and your twisted words
your help just hurts
you were not what i thought you were
hello to high and dry

Prechorus:
convinced me to please you
made me think that i need this too
i'm trying to let you hear me as i am

Chorus
i'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one, you see
i'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you tell me it's
make or break in this
if your on your way
i'm not gonna write you to stay
if all you have is leavin' im'a need a better reason
to write you a love song today

Bridge:
Dm      Am      Bb
promise me
                 F     C
you'll leave the light on
Dm         Am      Bb
to help me see
                  F      C
with daylight, my guide, gone
Dm       A            Bb
'cause i believe there's a way
        C
you can love me because i say

Chorus:
i wont write you a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one you see
i'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you tell me it's make or break in this
is that why you wanted a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one you see
im not gonna write you a love song
'cause you tell me it's make or break in this
if your on your way
im not gonna write you to stay

        Dm
if your heart is no where in it
       C
i dont want it for a minute
         Dm
babe ill walk the seven seas
         G/B
when i believe that there's a reason
   Bb          C         Gm  Bb  Dm  F
to write you a love song today, today
