G                     Gsus2           Cadd9             Gsus2      Em7
   Oh Florida please, be still tonight, don't disturb this love of mine 

                 D  Dsus         Cadd9           G
Look how she's so serene, you've gotta help me out

G                      Gsus       Cadd9              Gsus                Em7
   And count the stars to form in lines and find the words we'll sing in time

                D Dsus       Cadd9                    G
I want to keep her dreaming, it's my one wish, I won't forget this


Pre-Chorus

Cadd9         Gsus  D
I'm outdated, overrated

Cadd9            Em7  D
Morning seems so far away


Chorus

G              Gsus
So I'll sing a melody

  Cadd9 
And hope to God she's listening

Em7                   D Dsus
Sleeping softly while I sing

G                Gsus
And I'll be your memories

Cadd9
Your lullaby for all the times

Em7                   D Dsus
Hoping that my voice could get it right


**Now, one guitar repeats the intro and the other does a little diddle.. :D

   If luck is on my side tonight, my clumsy tongue will make it right

                     D Dsus         Cadd9            G
And wrists that touch, it isn't much, but it's enough

G             Gsus   Cadd9                     Gsus         Em7        
   To form imaginary lines, forget your scars, we'll forget mine

                    D Dsus   Cadd9                     
The hours change so fast, oh God, please make this last

Cadd9         Gsus  D
I'm outdated, overrated

Cadd9            Em7  D
Morning seems so far away


Chorus

G              Gsus
So I'll sing a melody

  Cadd9 
And hope to God she's listening

Em7                   D Dsus
Sleeping softly while I sing

G                Gsus
And I'll be your memories

Your lullaby for all the times

Em7                   D Dsus
Hoping that my voice could get it right

Cadd9    Gsus     D Dsus         Cadd9     D ------hold it.
                  Could get it right
