Many thanks to Pat Hillis who tabbed most of this with minimal help from
me!  When I play the 12th fret chord I mix in a little harmonics ala Joni
but since my guitar is old and doesn't ring the way it used to it doesn't
sound great all the time.

Tuning:  C G Bb Eb F Bb
         C 7 3  5  2 5

note:  u = up-strum   p=pull-off

Verse 2:

People don't know how to love
They taste it and toss it
Turn it off and on like a bathtub faucet
Oh, sometimes the light
Can be so hard to find
At least the moon at the window
The thieves left that behind.

Repeat intro go to third verse:

Verse 3:

Is it possible to learn
How to care and yet not care
When love has two faces
Hope and despair
Pleasure always turns to fear, I find
At least the moon at the window
The theives left that behind
