Verse 1 (0:00 - 0:26):

G
I close my eyes and I smile 
             Am7               G
Knowing that everything is alright 
        G/E
To the core

So close that door 
          Am7         Am7 
Is this happening?

     G                G/E
My breathe is on your hair 
     Cadd9
I'm unaware 
                      Am7
That you opened the blinds and let the city in 
 G                G/E
God, you held my hand 
       Cadd9
And we stand 
                    Am7        Am7
Just Taking in everything.

    G Cadd9
And I knew it from the start

So my arms are open wide 
      Am7
Your head is on my stomach 
      Am7                               G    Cadd9
And we're, we’re trying so hard not to fall asleep

Here we are

About family pasts 
                Am7
Just getting to know where we came from 
      G               G/E
Our hearts were on display 
           Cadd9
For all to see 
                           Am7
I can't believe this is happening to me and


Verse 4 (1:43 - 2:02):

   G                       G/E           
I raised my hand as if to show you that I was yours 
          Cadd9
That I was so yours for the taking 
    Am7
I'm so yours for the taking and 
G                              G/E
Thats when I felt the wind pick up 
                               Cadd9
I grabbed the rail while choking up 
                                 Am7
These words to say and then you kissed me...(yeah)
