[Intro]

[Verse]
                       G/B
You're sleeping son, I know
                        Am
But, really, this can't wait
              Em
I wanted to explain
                   Am
Before it gets too late
                    Fmaj7
For your mother and me
                 Em7
Love has finally died
                 Dm
This is no happy home
                      | E7sus4 | E7 |
But God knows how I've tried


[Chorus]
               Am             Dm
Because you're all I have, my boy
           G                  Cmaj7
You are my life, my pride, my joy
         F#m7-5         B7-9     B7     | E7sus4 | E7 |
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy     (break)


[Verse]
| C |  C                      G/B
     I know it's hard to understand
                Am
Why did we ever start?
                          Em
We're more like strangers now
                  Am
Each acting out a part
                       Fmaj7
I have laughed, I have cried
                  Em7
I have lost every game
                Dm
Taken all I can take
                           | E7sus4 | E7 |
But I'll stay here just the same


[Chorus]
               Am             Dm
Because you're all I have, my boy
           G                  Cmaj7
You are my life, my pride, my joy
         F#m7-5         B7-9     B7     | E7sus4 | E7 |
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy     (break)


[Verse]
| C |      C                       G/B
     Sleep on, you haven't heard a word
                     Am
Perhaps it's just as well
                      Em
Why spoil your little dreams
                        Am
Why put you through the hell
                Fmaj7
Life is no fairytale
                    Em7
As one day you will know
                      Dm
But now you're just a child
                           | E7sus4 | E7 |
I'll stay here and watch you grow


[Chorus]
               Am             Dm
Because you're all I have, my boy
           G                  Cmaj7
You are my life, my pride, my joy
         F#m7-5         B7-9     B7     | E7sus4 | E7 |
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy     (break)


[Chorus]
                     Am             Dm
Yeah, because you're all I have, my boy
           G                  Cmaj7
You are my life, my pride, my joy
         F#m7-5         B7-9     B7     | E7sus4 | E7 |
And if I stay, I stay because of you, my boy     (break)
