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


Intro: C# | Fm | Bb7 | Ebm | Ebm Ebm F#m F#madd9
       C# Fm7/C Bbm Bbm | Ebm Ebm7 | G#sus4 G#

          C#
There’s a picture on my kitchen wall
           Fm
Looks like Jesus and his friends involved,
          Bb7                          Ebm
There’s a party getting started in the yard,
                             F#m    F#madd9 C#
And there’s a couple getting steamy in the car,
       Fm7/C  Bbm
Parked in the drive.
    Ebm
Was I too young
            Ebm7    G#sus4 G#
To see this with my eyes?

           C#
And by the pool that night, apparently
    Fm
The chemicals weren’t mixed properly,
    Bb7                                 Ebm
You hit your head and then forgot your name
                       F#m
And you woke up at the bottom
F#madd9   C#  Fm7/C Bbm
By the drain
             Ebm
And now your altitude
         Ebm7         G#sus4 G#
And your memory’s a shame.

Chorus:
   C#           Ebm7        Fm7
     What about taking this empty cup
         Ebm7
     And filling it up
            C#                 Ebm7
     With a little bit more of innocence
       Fm7
     I haven’t had enough;
          Ebm7                         C#
     It’s probably because when you’re young
           Adim7     Bbm      B
     It’s okay to be easily ignored.
   F#
     I’d like to believe
                G# A               C#
     It was all about love for a child.

Instrumental: C# | C#

C#
When the house was
          Fm
Left in shambles,
                 Bb7
Who was there to handle
                         Ebm
All the broken bits of glass?
                      F#m     F#madd9 C#
Was it mom who put my dad out on his ass
       Fm7/C      Bbm
Or the other way around?
         Ebm            Ebm7            G#sus4 G#
Well I’m far too old to care about that now.

Chorus:
   C#           Ebm7        Fm7
     What about taking this empty cup
         Ebm7
     And filling it up
            C#                 Ebm7
     With a little bit more of innocence
       Fm7
     I haven’t had enough;
          Ebm7                         C#
     It’s probably because when you’re young
           Adim7     Bbm      B
     It’s okay to be easily ignored.
   F#
     I’d like to believe
                G# A               C#
     It was all about love for a child.

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

Chorus:
   C#           Ebm7        Fm7
     What about taking this empty cup
         Ebm7
     And filling it up
            C#                 Ebm7
     With a little bit more of innocence
       Fm7
     I haven’t had enough;
          Ebm7                         C#
     It’s probably because when you’re young
           Adim7     Bbm      B
     It’s okay to be easily ignored.
   F#
     I’d like to believe
                G# A               C#
     It was all about love for a child.
            F#  G# A   C#
     It was all about love…
