One Love

by: The Carpenters

((INTRO:)) [Am9-A-D6-(2x)]


[A           AM7]
One love in my young life,
[A7               D             Dm]
Took me somewhere I had never been
[       A              F#m6]
And I want to live again,
[          D            Esus  E]
Breathe again in the shelter of his
[   A         AM7]
Brightly-woven love song,
[ A7               D            Dm]
So long, I have wanted love to be,
[         A                  F#m6]
Sitting just this near to me.
[       Bm            C#]
Now my waiting heart is free.


((REFRAIN:))
[F#            Bm           F#9-F#]
Few are the choices we are given
[                             F#m]
(Few are the choices we are given)
[             Ab7               C#]
The hands of time passed quick by.
[A           AM7]
One dream of my young life,
[A7                  D]
Now stands holding out his
[           Dm]
  hand to me.


[       A                    F#m6]
Now I can't help but believe,
[         DM7   C#m7     DM7]
That my whole life will be
[Esus E    A]
Spent in one love.

  to me
