A#
That's all I wanted
                              G#
Something special, something sacred
          A#
In your eyes

For just one moment
                G#
To be bold and naked

At your side
F#                             G#
Sometimes I think that you'll never
       A#
Understand me
F#                    G#
Maybe this time is forever
        F
Say it can be


That's all you wanted
Something special, someone sacred
In your life
Just for one moment
To be warm and naked
At my side
Sometimes I think that you'll never
Understand me
But something tells me together
We'd be happy


(Baby)
A#
I will be your father figure
(Oh baby)
Put your tiny hand in mine

(I'd love to)
G#
I will be your preacher teacher
(Be your daddy)
Anything you have in mind

(It would make me)
A#
I will be your father figure
(Very happy)
I have had enough of crime

(Please let me)
G#
I will be the one who loves you
                  A#
Until the end of time



That's all I wanted
But sometimes love can be mistaken
For a crime
That's all I wanted
Just to see my baby's
Blue eyed shine
This time I think that my lover
Understands me
If we have faith in each other
Then we can be
Strong


I will be your father figure
Put your tiny hand in mine
I will be your preacher teacher
Anything you have in mind
I will be your father figure
I have had enough of crime
I will be the one who loves you
Until the end of time


F#              G#
If you are the desert
             F#
I'll be the sea
F#           G#
If you ever hunger
            F#
Hunger for me
F#                G#
Whatever you ask for
                  F   F#
That's what I'll be
               G#                       F#
So when you remember the ones who have lied
                    G#
Who said that they cared?
                          F#
But then laughed as you cried
           G#
Beautiful Darling
F
Don't think of me
                    A#  (solo) G#
Because all I ever wanted
              A#               G#
It's in your eyes baby, baby
                A#
And love can't lie, no...
   F#              G#              A#
(Greet me with the eyes of a child)
                             F#
My love is always tell me to...
                          G#
(Heaven is a kiss and a smile)
          F
Just hold on, hold on
                        A#
I won't let you go, my baby




I will be your father figure
Put your tiny hand in mine
I will be your preacher teacher
Anything you have in mind
I will be your father figure
I have had enough of crime
(So I am gonna love you)
Until the end of time
I will be your father
I will be your preacher
I will be your daddy
I will be the one who loves you until the end of time



A#                      G#   A#                                F#G#A#

I am not sure solo is correct but it's better than nothing, don't you
think?

Thank you for this lovely tab, Dmitri from 1997. I will investigate this "hot mail" you so graciously suggest.

I think it sounds a little better if you transpose down to A, rather than A#,

I want to post or [tab]
