F  G  C

VERSE I
            F         G                   C      (C/E)  F
Anywhere you are, I am near, anywhere you go, I'll be there
                        G             Am  (Asus2 Am)
Anytime you whisper my name, you'll see
                 F             G                        C       (C/E) F
How every single promise I'll keep, 'cause what kind of guy would I be
                            G       C
If I was to leave when you need me most

CHORUS
         F                         G                   Cadd9
What are words if you really don't mean them when you say them?
         F                          G                        Am
What are words? If they're only for good times, then they're torn
          F                            G
When it's love, yeah, you say them out loud, those words
    Cadd9  G    Am
They never go away
Em        F                    G
They live on, even when we're gone

VERSE II
             F           G                    C    (C/E)  F
And I know an angel was sent just for me, and I know I'm meant 
                            G    Am (Asus2 Am)
To be where I am, and I'm gonna be
                 F           G                   C   (C/E)    F
Standing right beside her tonight, and I'm gonna be by your side
                               G        C
I would never leave when she needs me most

CHORUS
         F                         G                   Cadd9
What are words if you really don't mean them when you say them?
         F                          G                        Am
What are words? If they're only for good times, then they're torn
          F                            G
When it's love, yeah, you say them out loud, those words
    Cadd9  G    Am
They never go away
Em        F                    G
They live on, even when we're gone

VERSE III
            F            G                C      (C/E)  F
Anywhere you are, I am near, anywhere you go, I'll be there
                         G      Am  (Asus2 Am)
And I'm gonna be here forever more
             F              G                       C       (C/E) F
Every single promise I'll keep, 'cause what kind of guy would I be
                             G       C
If I was to leave when you need me most

OUTRO
                             C
I'm forever keeping my angel close.

Anywhere you are, I am near, anywhere you go, I'll be there

in another video, the lyric is:

What are words if you really don't mean them when you say them?
What are words? If they're only for good times, then they don't?

"don't" as in you mean them only for good times; but then they don't mean anything in other times.

great tab!

some alternatives:


F G C Am Em F
Anywhere you are, I am near, anywhere you go, I'll be there
C (C7) F G Am (Asus2 Am Asus4)
And I'm gonna be here forever more

C C/B Am
They never go away
Em F F-Fm-Am G G-Gmaj7-G7
They live on, even when we're gone
