I need some time, just deliver the things that I
   Am                                             F
need for now.  Everything that I feel's like a warm
deep calm casting over me.  And it's taking

me to somewhere new.

If you believe that everything's all right
you won't be all alone tonight.  And I'd be 
blessed by the light of your company,
slowly lifting me to somewhere new.


C                            F
Oh, can't you tell I haven't slept very well
          Am          G       F
since the last time that we spoke
         C                      F
You said please understand if I see you again
       Am   G     F
don't even say hello.


C F Am G (x2)


             C                 F
What a night it is when you live like this
            Am                     G
and you're coming up beneath the clouds
              C                   F
don't let me down.  All the love's still there
       Am                            G
I just don't know what to do with it now

              C                      F
You know I still can't believe we both did some things
         Am                   G      
I don't even want to think about
               C                       F
Just say you love me and I'll say I'm sorry
                 Am                     G
I don't want anybody else to feel this way

No, no, no.


C                             F
   Can't you tell I haven't slept very well
           Am         G       F
since the last time that we spoke.
         C                            F
I said please understand I've been drinking again
    Am     G     F (pause)
and all I do is hope.


C    F    Am    G
        C    F    Am    G
Please, stay


          C                    F
I'll admit I was wrong about everything
          Am                           G
'Cuz I'm high and I don't wanna come down.
          C                       F
All the fun that we had on your mother's couch
        Am                    G
I don't even want to think about

          C                    F
I'm not strong enough for the both of us
         Am             G                C   F
what was I supposed to do?  You know I love you
  Am    G

         C    F    Am   G
Please, stay
C    F    Am    G


C F Am G (x2)

End on C
