V1 If I have one, I might as well have two If I have two, I might as well have ten Now, I don't need to count the rest I think we both no how the story ends I'm on your front porch I need a place to sleep Oh, love's gonna be the death of me The death of me Love's gonna be the death of me (The death of me, yeah...) V2 I tried hard to play my cards just right Beginner's luck usually gets me through the night But after one kiss it hits the fan A flush of bleeding hearts in my hand I grab a band-aid, but what's the rush? Oh, love's gonna be the death of us The death of us Love's gonna be the death of us (The death of us) BRIDGE Here we rest eternal, here we rest in peace, we Say a little prayer for the love deceased, we Bury our desire, burning all the lust, till it's Ash to ashes Dust to dust V3 Now you will never speak to me again It's all my fault and I cannot pretend There was a sign post I did not see Drivin' the wrong way down A one way street And now the car's wrapped Around a bus Oh, love's gonna be the death of us The death of us Oh, ooh, loves gonna be The death of us Ooh, ooh, loves gonna be The death of us Ooh, ooh, loves gonna be The death of us The death of us

V1 One hundred years from now No one will care about Anything you ever did Anything you ever said And if by chance they do You were probably a jerk Or likely even worse, Kept people down by force But perhaps you were a saint That's an honorable thing Gave your life to help the poor Fought injustices and wars Either way, you get the point We don't have much time to waste, just Find yourself a horse, and Ride it till it breaks Pre Chorus 1 All anyone will say is "Wait, what was their name?" But don't worry, it's ok Actually, it's great, cuz No one's keep score, so... So just get over... CH1 You-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, get over you, get over you. V2 One hundred years from now You'll be floating through the air While the cocaine that you did Decomposes in your hair If you're listening to this song Then, one hundred years from now You'll probably be dead Unless you've figured out How to change the serpentine belt Replace all your stem cells Seven daily health tips Ketosis or kale chips So what's it all about? Can't we figure this shit out? Do we really have to fight If we all still have to die? Pre Chorus 2 All anyone will say is "Wait, what was their name?" But don't worry, it's ok Actually, it's great, cuz No one's keep score, so... So just get over... CH2 You-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, get over you, get over you. BRIDGE V3 A couple years ago My friend took a vacation Thirty days of silence Tried to meditate some — Where in Southeast Asia I think it was Thailand... Either way, he showed me Pictures from his camera, and Written on the wall Of the temple where he sat It said "cut yourself some slack" And then this basic fact, it Made me laugh out loud So deep but yet so simple It said "One hundred years from now, remember: All new people" So just get over... CH3 You-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, get over you, get over You-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, get over you, get over You-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, get over you, get...

V1 Love What did you mean by Love? Is that the word you meant to whisper With kisses down her neck? Love What did you mean by that? And what did you expect would happen? She'd pat you on the back, stand up and Start slow clappin'? Love What did you mean by Love? I think you meant 'like you strongly' Unless you meant 'just your body' Just enough to stay But not enough to fall Instead of giving up What did you mean by Love? V2 Hope What did you mean you hope so? Did you mean you were less than likely To head over your heels, because your heart was Just not there? That's what you could've said No hieroglyphics to decipher No beatin' 'round the bush Just set the bush on fire, but... Love Love What did you mean by Love? I think you meant 'see you later' 'It's really been a bunch of fun but now it's done' I know... You probably have to go But I'd still like to know... CH What did you mean by Love? What did you mean? What did you mean When you said Love? What did you mean when you said Love? V3 Love It's more than just a word You thought that you could test the waters Droppin' the atom bomb... Well, now the water's turning Red And all the fish are dead Floatin' around my head With all the other things I could have said to make you See Just what you mean to me, but The damage has been done... CH What did you mean by Love? What did you mean? What did you mean When you said Love? What did you mean when you said Love? Oh, Love What did you mean? Love What did you mean when you said Love?
