[Verse 1]
       C         Dm         F          G
Like a... square peg in a round hole,
       C              Dm          F     G
Like a... harp with - out it's strings,
          C        Dm      F     G
Like a sailor who sails no o - ceans,
       C            Dm       F     G
Like a... bird that has no wings!


[Verse 2]
          C            G      F    G
(Without love...) ...I am a desert,
          C              G        F    G
(Without love...) ...my light is dim,
          C              G         F      G
(Without love...) ...I have no treasures,
          C              G     F    G
(Without love...) ...I cannot win!


[Verse 3]
         Am                               F
Without love...we are like ships in the night,
         Am                               G
Without love, selling our souls down the river,
Em                           F                    G    G4 G
    Sailing away, and for - ever our pleasure is blue!

[Verse 4]
       C             Dm        F      G
Like a... dream that has no dreamer,
         C          Dm     F    G
Like a cloud with - out a sky,
           C        Dm       F     G
Like the truth with no be - lie - ver,
         C           Dm      F     G
Like a mother with - out a child!


[Verse 5]
          C              G         F      G
(Without love...) ...I have no pleasures,
          C              G            F
(Without love...) ...my light is dim,
          C              G         F      G
(Without love...) ...I have no treasures,
          C              G               F
(Without love...) ...my chance is slim!


[Verse 6]
         Am                               F
Without love...we are like ships in the night,
         Am                               G

Em                           F                    G     G4 G
    Sailing away, and for - ever our pleasure is blue!
