Sting-Whenever I say your name            Transcribed by Fernakas 1.2.2004

[F#m]Whenever I [F#m/A]say your name, when[Hm/Ab]ever I call to [C#5okt]mind your face 
[F#m]Whatever bread's [F-57/A]in my mouth, what[Hm/Ab]ever the sweetest [C#5okt]wine that I taste
[F#m]Whenever your [F#m/A]memory feeds my soul, [Hm/Ab]whatever got [C#5okt]broken becomes whole
[F#m]Whenever I'm [F-57/A]filled with doubts [Hm/Ab]that we will [E7]be together

[Am]Wherever I [Am/F#]lay me down, wher[H°]ever I put my [E5]head to sleep
[Amadd2]Whenever I [A-57/C]hurt and cry, when[H°]ever I got to [E5]lie awake and weep
[Am]Whenever I [Am/F#]kneel to pray, whenever I [H°]need to find a [E5]way
I'm calling [F#m]out your name

Whenever those [Hm]dark clouds [A/C#]hide the [D]moon  [D-5/C#][Hm]
Whenever this [Hm/G#]world has gotten so [E]strange
I know that [F/D]something's- Something's gonna change

[C] [C/E]Whenever I [Gsus4]say your [G]name, I'm already [Dm]praying [F]
I'm already [Asus4]filled with a joy that I [Am]can't explain
[Em]Wherever I lay me down, wher[F/A]ever I rest my [G/H]weary head to [C]sleep
Whenever I [C/E]hurt and cry, when[D/F#]ever I got to [E7/G#]lie awake and [Am]weep
Whenever I'm [Am/C]on the floor
What[Bb/D]ever it was that I[C/E] believed be[F]fore
Whenever I [F/E]say your name, whenever I [Dm7/H]say it [E]loud, I'm already ([Am]praying

[F#m]Whenever this [F#m/A]world has got me [Hm/Ab]down, whenever I [C#5okt]shed a tear
[F#m]Whenever the [F-57/A]TV makes me [Hm/Ab]mad, whenever I'm [C#5okt]paralyzed with fear
[F#m]Whenever those [F#m/A]dark clouds fill the [Hm/Ab]sky, whenever I [C#5okt]lose the reason why
[F#m]Whenever I'm [F-57/A]filled with [Hm/Ab]doubts that we will be to[E7]gether

[Am]Whenever the [Am/F#]sun refuse to [H°]shine, whenever the [E5]skies are pouring rain
[Amadd2]Whatever I [A-57/C]lost I thought was [H°]mine whenever I [E5]close my eyes in pain
[Am]Whenever I [A-57/C]kneel to pray, when[H°]ever I need to [E5]find a way
I'm calling [F#m]out your name

Whenever this [H]dark be[A/C#]gins to ([D]fall)  
Whenever I'm [D]vulner[D-5/C#]able and [Hm]small
Whenever I [Hm/G#]feel like I could [E]die (Whenever I [E/G#]feel like I could) 
Whenever I'm [C#sus4]holding back the tears that I cry (ai i[H5]ai

[A] Whenever I [A/C#]say your name [Esus4] [E], (whenever I call to mind your face)
I'm already [Hm]praying
Whatever bread's [D]in my mouth, what[F#sus4]ever the sweetest [F#m]wine that I taste
[C#m]Wherever I lay me down, wher[D/F#]ever I rest my [E/G#]weary head to [A]sleep
Whenever I [A/C#]hurt and cry, whenever I'm [H/D#]forced to lie a[C#7/E]wake and have to [F#m]weep
Whenever I'm [F#m/A]on the floor 
What[G/H]ever it was that [A/C#]I believed be[D]fore
Whenever I [D/F#]say your name, whenever I [Ab°/H]say it [Asus2]loud, I'm al[E]ready praying

    A    G#   G#     F#  F#      E     E     D#
   E    E    E     D#   H      H     A     A 
E H   H    A     A     G#    G#    F#    F#

Whenever I say your name,
No matter how long it takes,
One day we'll be together

Whenever I say your name,
let there be no mistake
that day will last forever

Lay out is not very nice (chords hidden inbetween the lyrics), and what does the H chord mean? Also, some notations (like F-57) don't make sense to me and I can't find them anywhere on the internet. Sorry.. Is this only me?
