VERSE 1:

                 Abadd9                  Fmadd9
Every breath you take and every move you make
               Dbadd9               Ebadd9                     F#madd9
Every bond you break every step you take I'll be watching you

Badd9         AbAdd9
you belong to me 
    Abadd9        Bbadd9           
how my poor heart aches

BRIDGE:

Eadd9                                      F#add9
Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace
                                     Eadd9
I dream at night I can only see your face
                                   F#add9
I look around but it's you I can't replace
                                   Eadd9
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
                        Abadd9 (Verse 3)
I keep crying baby baby please
