                    Fm6                          G7
                The first thing that I'd like to do
                      Cm         Cm7      A-       Fm7    Cm
                Is to save every day till eternity passes away
                        Fm              G7
                Just to spend them with you.

                   Cm           Cm(maj7)  Cm7    Cm6
                If I could make days last forever
                    Fm6                          G7
                If words could make wishes come true
                      Cm         Cm7      A-       Fm7    Cm
                I'd save every day like a treasure and then
                        Fm              G7
                Again, I would spend them with you.


                          C              Cmaj7
Chorus:         But there never seems to be enough time
     |             C6                C                   F       Fmaj7
     |          To do the things you want to do Once you find them
     |  Dm7  G7      C             Cmaj7
     |          I've looked around enough to know
     |               C6               C                  F         Fmaj7 Dm7 G7
     |          That you're the one I want to go through time with.


                   Cm          Cm(maj7) Cm7    Cm6
                If I had a box just for wishes
                    Fm6                        G7
                And dreams that had never come true
                    Cm           Cm7   A-             Fm7    Cm
                The box would be empty except for the memory
                       Fm              7
                Of how they were answered by you

If I could make days last forever,
If words could make wishes come true,
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again I would spend them with you.

If I had a box just for wishes,
And dreams that had never come true,
The box would be empty except for the memory of
How they were answered by you.
