The 1st four notes on the D and A strings are played like a
bass just before playing the chord. The other notes are played
just after the chord except for the last note on the D string
which is bass again.

   D                                   F#m
1  I see the headlights shining on the wall.*
2  I thought I heard some footsteps on the floor.*
      Em                               D
1  It seems I've got a visitor, who is kind enough to call.&
2  And tell me if I'm dreaming, or is someone at the door.&

Chorus
D     Bm       F#m    Bm   F#m
And I hope and pray, ev'ry day.
F#m  Bm       F#m        D

And if you were to ask me, about the meaning of my life.
   G                                 A
It kind of lost it's meaning, on the day you went away.
A             D                               F#m  *
You know that when it comes to matters of the heart.

I sometimes wonder baby, if I dreamed it all instead.
A       D                                  F#m  *
You see I've got to feel your hand upon my face.
