[Intro]

|D A|G A| 
|D A|G A| 


[Verse]

D      A          G             A           D    A G A
It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
D        A         G           A            D   A G A
Without saying a word you can light up the dark
G                     A
Try as I may I could never explain
D       A               G          A
What I hear when you don't say a thing


[Chorus]

      D               A          G             A
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
            D             A          G             A
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
   D              A                 G                  A G A
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
D    G                 A                     
Now you say it best, when you say nothing at all


[Instrumental]

|D A|G A| 
|D A|G A| 


[Verse]

D      A          G             A           D    A G A
All day long I can hear people talking out loud
D      A          G             A           D    A G A
But when you hold me near you drown out the crowd
G                     A
Old Mister Webster could never define
D       A               G          A
What's being said between your heart and mine


[Chorus]

      D               A          G             A
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
            D             A          G             A
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
   D              A                 G                  A G A
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
D    G                 A                     
Now you say it best, when you say nothing at all

Maybe you should just learn chords.

you know, some of the words are completely wrong and some doesn't even belong in the lyric.
I still think you made a great job! but you could've included the intro...the hammer on in the intro, I mean.

This is a good tab of a great song. Use the same cords and capo the 5th fret for the Ronan Keating version which is played with a lovely and simple fingerstyle. In the Keating recording, hammer on the E string when switching from A to D and pluck the B then E string just before changing from the A to G. You can also dress it up by adding a pull off the E string here and there when switching from D to A
