So far all we’ve been able hear off of Jack Johnson‘s new album To The Sea is You And Your Heart which was released as a single.

The music video for You And Your Heart is great and I listened to it to figure out the song.

Verse:
A
Watch you when you say
         G
What you are and when you blame
     D
Everyone, You broken king
A
Watch you change the frame or
          G
Watch you when you take your aim
       D
At the sum of everything

Chorus:
      G            A
Cause you and your heart
          D            G
Shouldn't feel so far apart
   (F#) G               A
You can choose what you take
              D                         G    G#
Why you gotta break and make it feel so hard

(repeat 2x)

 A
You lay there in the street
            G                              D
Like broken glass reflecting pieces of the sun

But you're not the flame
            A
You got the people passing by
            G
Because you know what you don't like
          D
It's just so easy, it's just so easy

(repeat 2x and through bridge)

E (pedal G# on E string)

Bridge:
                 A                 D
You just draw so many lines in the sand
         A              D
Lost the fingernails on your hands
           A                 D
How you're gonna scratch any backs?
       A                   D              E
Better hope that time will take our lines away

Take all our lines and
A         D         A        D
Hope that time will take our lines and
A         D         A        D     E
Hope that time will take our lines away
                   A/
Take all our lines away
