***Guitar tuned to half A tone down***  Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

I'll name chords as if they were in standard tuning. E.g, D is actually (Db).

Ab|--------5--------0--------7--------5--------4--------|

(verse 1)
D            F#m      A
  My song is love
D             F#m       A
  Love to the lover's shone
D             F#m      A
  And it goes on
          G       F#m   A
You don't have to be alone



(verse 2)
D             F#m    A
  Your heavy heart
D            F#m       A        G
  Is made of stone
D            F#m      A    
 And it's so hard to see, clearly
          G          F#m       A
You don't have to be on your own
          G          F#m        A
You don't have to be on your own




(chorus 1)
E                       D        A
   And I'm not going to take it back
E                               D              A
   well I'm not going to say I don't mean that
E                              D          A                     
   You're the target that I'm aiming at
      G        F#m       A
And I get that message home

(verse 3)
My song is love
My song is love, I know
And I'm on fire for you, clearly
You don't have to be alone
You don't have to be on your own

(chorus 2)
And I'm not going to take it back
well I'm not going to say I don't mean that
You're the target that I'm aiming at
But I'm nothing on my own
Got to get that message home

(solo) [over chorus chords]

(chorus 3)
and im not gonna stand and wait 
not gonna kneel there until its much to late
on a platform im gonna stand and say
that I'm nothing on my own
and I love you please come home

(outro)
G          F#m
my song is love 
A        G
is love I know
         G       F#m     A       D
and I've got to get that message home
