Brighten Your Night With My Day

Words & music by James Taylor

D  G  (Play 4x)

D    Bm  Em        A       F#m
Daybreak finds you up and alive 

        Bm               G       D      (Fill #1)
Just as though you could touch a star 

    D   Bm          Em            A  F#m
But sunset seems to leave you weary alone 

    Bm        G       D
And wondering who you are 

F#m        Bm       F#m             Bm
   Don't deny that lonely feeling babe

     Em              A          D            F#m
That keeps stealing on you from deep down inside 

F#m/C#         F#m           Bm         Em
Hey, can't you see that it's no good concealing 

   A            Bm         C
A feeling it hurts you to hide 

(Fill #2)          Bm     F#m
When you can come home to me 

         Em        A               D
Yes, I'm happy to hear what you've got 

               Bm    C
To say to me, baby, all the way 

(Fill #2)     Bm        F#m
Girl, you can count on me 

             C            A
Watch those shadows fade away 

    Em              A           (Fill #3)
And brighten your night with my day 

G   A     D  Bm  Em      A 
Daybreak, sunset hot and cold 

        D          F#m
Running smiles and tears 

E            A        E                  A
 A bright outside to match your foolish pride 

          D             Bm      C
But not a word for the lonely years 

(Fill #2)        Bm      F#m
Please come back home to me 

        Em             A
Now you won't have to say 

            D                Bm             C
That you'll stay with me, baby, no, it's not that way 

(Fill #2)      Bm      F#m
Just come back home to me 

             C            A
Watch those shadows fade away 

    Em              A
And brighten your night with my... 

(Same strumming as intro)
D       G
Daybreak, sunset 

    D                 G
You don't have to cry no more 

      D              G
Now, everything's gonna be just fine 

D               G
Watch out, baby, here it comes 

D                    G
Right around the corner 

Here it comes 

     D              G            (Fill #3)
Just brighten your night with my day babe hey hey yeah yeah yeah
