Lyrics and Music by Jason Mraz, Martin Terefe and Sacha Skarbek


Intro: Bb | Dm | G7 | Cm | Cm Cm Ebm Ebmadd9
       Bb Dm7/A Gm Gm | Cm Cm7 | Fsus4 F

          Bb
There’s a picture on my kitchen wall
           Dm
Looks like Jesus and his friends involved,
          G7                           Cm
There’s a party getting started in the yard,
                             Ebm    Ebmadd9 Bb
And there’s a couple getting steamy in the car,
       Dm7/A  Gm
Parked in the drive.
    Cm
Was I too young
            Cm7     Fsus4 F
To see this with my eyes?

           Bb
And by the pool that night, apparently
    Dm
The chemicals weren’t mixed properly,
    G7                                  Cm
You hit your head and then forgot your name
                       Ebm
And you woke up at the bottom
Ebmadd9   Bb  Dm7/A Gm
By the drain
             Cm
And now your altitude
         Cm7          Fsus4 F
And your memory’s a shame.

Chorus:
   Bb           Cm7         Dm7
     What about taking this empty cup
         Cm7
     And filling it up
            Bb                 Cm7
     With a little bit more of innocence
       Dm7
     I haven’t had enough;
          Cm7                          Bb
     It’s probably because when you’re young
           F#dim7    Gm       Ab
     It’s okay to be easily ignored.
   Eb
     I’d like to believe
                F F#               Bb
     It was all about love for a child.

Instrumental: Bb | Bb

Bb
When the house was
          Dm
Left in shambles,
                 G7
Who was there to handle
                         Cm
All the broken bits of glass?
                      Ebm     Ebmadd9 Bb
Was it mom who put my dad out on his ass
       Dm7/A      Gm
Or the other way around?
         Cm             Cm7             Fsus4 F
Well I’m far too old to care about that now.

Chorus:
   Bb           Cm7         Dm7
     What about taking this empty cup
         Cm7
     And filling it up
            Bb                 Cm7
     With a little bit more of innocence
       Dm7
     I haven’t had enough;
          Cm7                          Bb
     It’s probably because when you’re young
           F#dim7    Gm       Ab
     It’s okay to be easily ignored.
   Eb
     I’d like to believe
                F F#               Bb
     It was all about love for a child.

 Ab           Eb/G
   It’s kinda nice to work
       Bb                 Dm
   The floor since the divorce,
               Ab
   I’ve been enjoying
           Cm                 Bb
   Both my Christmases and my birthday cakes
       Ab               Eb/G
   And taking drugs and making love
      Bb               Dm
   At far too young an age
            Ab
   And they never checked to see my grades
          F                         F/A  F
   What a fool I’d be to start complaining now.

Chorus:
   Bb           Cm7         Dm7
     What about taking this empty cup
         Cm7
     And filling it up
            Bb                 Cm7
     With a little bit more of innocence
       Dm7
     I haven’t had enough;
          Cm7                          Bb
     It’s probably because when you’re young
           F#dim7    Gm       Ab
     It’s okay to be easily ignored.
   Eb
     I’d like to believe
                F F#               Bb
     It was all about love for a child.
            Eb  F F#   Bb
     It was all about love…
