3 The Quarrel

In every marriage there is some kind of conflict, at one time or another. Will the couple in this song manage to communicate with one another?

They obviously care for one another, but can they express it? There’s a lot at stake here ~ a whole family’s future.

Intro: Bm/D A/D A2 Bm A/D A2 E

(Lady)

A D E

Don't know if I can look into your eyes

A D E

Can't even reach to hold your hand,

D E A F#m

There's so much to gain if we talk this thing through,

D6 E A

only I am so afraid of losing you

BM7/D A/D A2

Think of the way our love grew

E7 G

Can't imagine life without you

(Man)

C F G

Why is my tongue so silent and so still?

C D G

when I have got so much to say

F G C Am

There's so much to lose if we don't talk this through

F6 G A

only I am so afraid of losing you

F C G E E7

How is it you fail to see Without you where would I be?

(lady)

A D E

We aren't the only ones crying in the dark

A D E

I can hear their whispers in the night

D E A F#m

We'll really hurt them if we don't talk this through

D6 E A D9 E F#m B7

Only I am so afraid of losing you, I am so afraid of losing you

(Both)

E A E

Please don't turn your back on me

A E

I need you don't you see

A B7sus B7

Why can't you talk to me?

(Both)

A D E

Can't bear to be so near yet feel so far away

A D E

Can't stand the stillness of the night

D E A F#m

Can't take the pain of not knowing what to do

D6 E A D6 E A

And I am so afraid of losing you I'm so afraid of losing you

D6 E A F#M D6 E A

I'm so afraid of losing you, I’m so afraid of losing you.
