There's somethin I just have
[     Bm]

[Am         G           D    Dsus-D]
Another day knowin' I love you

[   G        C]

If I tell you tonight
[         G/B]
Would you turn out the lights?
[Am       G-           D    Dsus-D]
Walk away  knowin' I love you

Lookin' for the words to say,
[        C]
Do you wanna be free?
[         G/B]
Are you ready for me
[Am               G]
To feel this way? I don't wanna

[G       C                G]
So and maybe too soon I know
[     Em]
The feelin' takes so long to
[  Bm]
  grow,
[     C]
If I tell you today
[         G/B]
Will you turn me away?
[    Am        G]
