Pre-Chorus (strummed)
----------
[C]part. And I [Am]need you now to[F]night
And I [G]need you more than [C]ever
And if you'll [Am]only hold me [F]tight
We'll be [G]holding on for[C]ever
And we'll [Am]only be making it [F]right
Cause we'll [G]never be wrong 

To[F]gether we can take it to the [G]end of the line
Your [Am]love is like a shadow on me [D]all of the time (all of the time)
I [C]don't know what to do and I'm [G/B]always in the dark
We're [Am]living in a powder keg and [D]giving off sparks
I really need you to[C]night, for[G/B]ever's gonna [Am]start to[F]night
For[G]ever's gonna start to[C]night
