This song can be played many ways, and with many different arrangements.
The album version is played with two guitars (rhythm and lead), one bass,
drums, and piano. However, I find that
the arrangement of two guitars (one acoustic for rhythm and one electric
for picking), with
percussion (you can't really call it drums, since the percussion in this
version usually only consists of the drummer, Mickey Curry, keeping the
beat with a marraca). The version being tabbed here (the latter version)
is very easy to play, and sounds great. It is in a different key, so it
may sound a little bit different than normal. I hope you enjoy it.


VERSE I:
C                  G
Look into my eyes, you will see

F                G
What you mean to me
            
            C                  G
Search your heart, search your soul

             F                     C         G
And when you find me there, you'll search no more

      
CHORUS I:
      Dm                     C      Dm    C
Don't tell me it's not worth trying for

          Dm                     C     Dm
You can't tell me it's not worth dying for

              C                G            C
You know it's true, everything I do, I do it for you


VERSE II:
C                     G
Look into your heart, you will find

        F                G
There's nothing there to hide

                  C           G
Just take me as I am, take my life

        F                    C    G
I would give it all, I would sacrifice


CHORUS II:
      Dm                     C        Dm    C
Don't tell me it's not worth fighting for

I can't help it, there's nothing I want more

              C                G             C

BRIDGE:
Bb                   Eb
There's no love like your love

       Bb               F

        C              G
There's nowhere unless you're there

        D             G    C
All the time, all the way, yeah

ALTERNATE SOLO:
There are alternate ways of playing the solo in this song, as demonstrated during
Bryan's
concerts and video/DVD releases. I will list one of them here.
  

ALTERNATE #1:  This is the solo that appears on the album version and most major
releases of the song. If you are playing the song in the same key that it appears
in on the album, simply move each note up two frets.

  1 2   3 4  1 +   2   +   3  +  4  +  1 +    2   + 3 + 4  +    1    +  2 +      3   +   4  +
