((INTRO:)) 
[A-AM7-A7-D/F#-Dm/F-A/E-Dm6-E7 pause]


[      A                AM7]
If a picture paints a thousand
  words,
[     A7                D/F#]
Then why can't I paint you?
[    Dm/F             A/E]
The words will never show
[    Dm6               E7]
The you I've come to know

[      A             AM7]
If a face launch a thousand
  ships,
[     A7            D/F#]
Then where am I to go?
[       Dm/F             A/E]
There's no one home but you
[       Dm6                E7]
You're all that's left me too


((REFRAIN:))
[     F#m     F#m+M7]
 And when my love
[     F#m7            D6]
 For life is running dry
[        C#m7       F#7]
 You'll come and pour
[    Bm7        E7pause]
   yourself on me


[     A]
If a man could be in two
[ AM7]
  places
[       A7               D/F#]
At one time I'd be with you
[ Dm/F         A/E]
Tomorrow and today
[ Dm6                  E7]
Beside you all the way

[       A]
If the world should stop
[    AM7]
  revolving
[         A7             D/F#]
Spinning slowly down to die
[    Dm/F                 A/E]
I'd spend the end with you
[    Dm6                  E7]
And when the world was through


((REFRAIN:))
[      F#m    F#m+M7]
 Then one by one
[     F#m                D6]
 The stars would all go out
[      C#m7   F#7]
 Then you and I
[       Bm7    E7 hold]
 Would simply fly
[    A  D/A  Dm6  A]
   away
