DD|D       A|D

         A |Bm                 A   |Bm     
A love born once must soon be born again
 |D                   A |D                         A |Bm        
A spark that burned, then died, leaving cinders to be fanned by the wind 
          A |Bm 
And thrown to flame
|G                    |A                  
 Flames like tongues impassioned in a moment's burst
|G                             |A    
   Tell me friend - why do you stand aloof from your own heart?

|D      A|D       A|Bm      A|Bm     |D

The truth confronts you 
The truth confronts you as the sea crushing without detail
Impassioned and detached, killing with love and power in God's name

|D                   |      
 People, stop hurting people
|D                   |        
 People, stop hurting people

|G                |A                  |Bb
   Love conquers poses, love smashes stances
      |G                         |D       |A       |D      |A     
Love crushes angles into black
  |D           |A                  |D                 |A
So you, without question, know your first love is your last
   |D       |A             |D      |A                         |D    
And you will never - you'll never - never - you'll never love again

I always wished to walk with her into restaurants (it's a clammy tale)
To be seen beside her at the public bar footrail
I always wanted to be matched with her
Yet her beauty was so different to mine
My beauty needs an understanding and a knowledge of what I am
Hers is enough, earned through eons; for that is what true beauty is:
Time's gift to perfect humility

May I be matched with you again
I know the match is bad
But God help me, may I be matched with you again
I know the match is bad
But God help me, may I be matched with you again
I know the match is bad
God help me, may I be matched with you again
Without your match, there is no flame

|D    A|D     A|Bm    A|Bm   |D    A|D     A|Bm    A|Bm    |

|D                   |      
 People, stop hurting people
|Bm                  |        
 People, stop hurting people
|D                   |      
 People, stop hurting people
|Bm                  |        
 People, stop hurting people
