Am G/A            Am                          G/A
So long I've been looking too hard, I've been waiting too long.
Am                     G/A                Am                 G/A
Sometimes I don't know what I will find.  I only know it's a matter of time.

When you love someone,    when you love someone,
   Em7                D/E             Em7                   D/E     E7
It feels so right, so warm and true.  I need to know if you feel it too.
Fmaj9            G                   Fmaj9                G
      Maybe I'm wrong.  Won't you tell me if I'm coming on too strong?
     Fmaj                       G         Fmaj9                    G
This heart of mine has been hurt before.  This time I wanna be sure.

            Dm                           Bb               Dm C/D
I've been waiting for a girl like you to come into my life.
            Dm                           Bb                    Gm
I've been waiting for a girl like you, a love that will survive.
            Dm                       Bb                Dm C/D
I've been waiting for someone new to make me feel alive.
        Dm                           Bb               Gm
Yeah, waiting for a girl like you to come into my life.


Am            G/A         Am                G/A
   Your'se so good.  When we make love it's understood.
     Am                     G/A           Am                      G/A
It's more than a touch or a word we say.  Only in dreams could it be this
         Em7          DaddE               Em7          D/F# E7
When you love someone,       yeah, really love someone.
Fmaj9                  G               Fmaj9                  G
      Now, I know it's right from the moment I wake up till deep in the
        Fmaj9                       G                   Fmaj9       G
There's nowhere on earth that I'd rather be than olding you tenderly.
