IN THE FACE OF LOVE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


      INTRO:  Em - Am/E - Em


              Em                          Am
          I.  now if our leaders declared war,
              Em                               B7
              we'd have to shoot each other on sight.
              Em                            Am
              I stand against all you stand for,
                     Em                        B7
              but my body lies against yours tonight.
              C              D7  D#dim         Em
              my friends all say that you're a spy,
              C                 D7      D#dim          Em
              and I'm sure your friends say that so am I.
                  C              D
              but in the face of love,
                               Em    Em7
              all nations disappear.


              (repeat intro)


              Em                       Am
         II.  you have a son as old as me.
              Em                            B7
              your hair is not as dark as before.
              Em                                Am
              you've seen 'most all there is to see.
                         Em                         B7
              but you're patient with this young amateur.
              C         D7   D#dim     Em
              and you ignore my clumsy ways.
              C           D7  D#dim             Em
              and I never see the lines in your face.
                     C                   D
              'cause through the eyes of love,
                                 Em     Em7
              all time just disappears.


              (repeat intro)


              Em                       Am
        III.  now if my face resembled yours,
              Em                            B7
              with not a whisker here on my chin;
              Em                                     Am
              if my shape could fill the clothes you wear,
              Em                           B7
              with the same places fat and thin;
              C           D7   D#dim       Em
              we wouldn't care what people said.
              C             D7   D#dim       Em
              we'd still be here in the same bed.
                     C                   D
              'cause through the eyes of love,
                               Em     Em7
              the soul alone appears.
