Intro: C-Dm7-F/A-F#/Bb~G/B-C-C9,C-Am-G7


C               Am
I guess you've heard
G7           C
I guess you know
                      Am
In time I might have told you 
       G7            C
But I guess I'm too slow
              Am
It's overly romantic 
       G7             C
But I know that it's real
             Am
I hope you don't mind 
      G7          C
If I say what I feel

       F                           G,Gsus4,G
It's like I'm in somebody else's dream
       F                        G,Gsus4,G
This could not be happening to me

C              Dm7
But you were there
F/A           F#/Bb~G/B       C     C9,C
And you were everything I'd never seen
 Am         G7            Dm7              Em7
You woke me up from this long and endless sleep
        F6
I was alone
   Gsus4     G                  C-C9,C-Am-G7
I opened my eyes and you were there.


C           Am         G7         C
Don't be alarmed, no don't be concerned. 
                  Am
I don't want to change things 
            G7           C      
Leave them just as they were. 
                           Am
I mean nothing's really different 
      G7            C
It's me who feel strange. 
                      Am
I'm always lost for words when 
          G7
Someone mentions your name. 
   F                                G,Gsus4,G
I know that I'll get over this for sure 
     F                                      G,Gsus4,G
I'm not the type who dreams there could be more. 


C              Dm7
But you were there
F/A           F#/Bb~G/B       C     C9,C
And you were everything I'd never seen
 Am         G7            Dm7              Em7
You woke me up from this long and endless sleep
        F6
I was alone
   Gsus4     G                  F
I opened my eyes and you were there.


F       G                        C Csus4,C
Can I take your smile home with me, 
F        G            Fm7-Gm7-C-C9,C-Am-G7 hold
or the magic in your hair? 

C               Am          G7         C
The rain has stopped, the storm has passed 
                  Am            G7            C
Look at all the colors now the sun's here at last. 
                           Am        G7             C
I suppose that you'll be leaving but I want you to know 
                   Am           G7
Part of you stays with me even after you go. 
         F                             G,Gsus4,G
Like an actor playing someone else's scene 
  F                            G,Gsus4,G
This could not be happening to me. 

C              Dm7
But you were there
F/A           F#/Bb~G/B       C     C9,C
And you were everything I'd never seen
 Am         G7            Dm7              Em7
You woke me up from this long and endless sleep
        F6
I was alone
   Gsus4      G       Dm7
I opened my eyes and I’m,
          Em7                F6
I'm not alone, no, I'm not alone. 
   Gsus4      G                 C-C9,C-F6/A-Gsus4,G,C-C9,C
I opened my eyes and you were there.
