I Em7-5promise I’m the one for you
Just let me hold you Am7-5in these arms toGmaj7night
I’m Gmaj7lucky to be near you
You can Em7-5*see it in my Dmaj7face

Why would I Em7-5let myself get down in the Am7-5first       pGmaj7lace

Spoken while main chord progression:
And so she sat me down and told me that I didn’t have to cry
Said I didn’t need to get down and feel empty inside
And told me that she love me for as long as she’s alive
And well, maybe she’s right, cause I hate it when I feel like I’m not me
See, I honestly, don’t even know why
I, I honestly don’t even know why

 

Chorus:
I’m trying to Em7-5*keep my mind at Dmaj7bay

Make it F#m7-5do-down, du du Em7du
Em7-5Waiting for a minute till the sun’s seen tAm7-5hrough my Gmaj7eyes
