Loving You Means Everything Chords: D A G

A
She likes the songs that I don't like
She likes the songs that I don't like G A
She likes the songs that I don't like and I love her, yes I love her

A G A
When we were first friends, well we had these arguments about who was more punk rock
A G A
But things are different now and we've learned to get along and how to let things go

A
She likes the songs that I don't like
She likes the songs that I don't like G A
She likes the songs that I don't like and I love her, yes I love her

A G A
Truth is we're different and it's not unusual to have to sit and talk for a while
A
Some of it's circumstance like I'm from the East Coast, and I'm from the West Coast
G A
But truth is we were made differently

A
She likes the songs that I don't like
She likes the songs that I don't like G A
She likes the songs that I don't like and I love her, yes I love her

A
So in conclusion, well I guess we’re growing up and changing priorities
G A
Because loving you means everything from me

A
So we’ll sing songs that we both like
So we’ll sing songs that we both like
So we’ll sing songs that we both like
G A
Because loving you means everything from me
G A
Because loving you means everything from me
G A
Because loving you means everything from me
