Verse 1
Dm       Bb
I cannot help it
F                  C
I couldn't stop it if I tried
Dm           Bb
The same old heartbeat
          F        C       Dm    Bb
fills the emptyness I have inside
         F                          C
And I've heard that you can't fight love
           Dm      Bb
so I won't complain
    F                    C                 Bb
Coz why would I stop the fire that keeps me going on

Chorus
                 F
Coz when there's you
       C
I feel whole
            G                        Dm
And there's no better feelin in this world
    Bb      F
But without you
    C
I'm alone
        G            Bb
And I'd rather be in love with you

Verse 2
Dm           Bb
Turn out the lights now
F            C
To see is to believe
Dm              Bb
I just want you near me
F               C         Dm  Bb
I just want you here with me
        F            C              Dm  Bb
And I'd give up everything only for you
         F                  C  Bb
It's the least that I could do

Repeat Chorus, but add on
Dm  Bb      F        C
     and I feel you holding me
Dm  Bb      F        C

Bridge
G              Bb            G
  Why are we afraid to be in love?
      Bb     G
To be loved
          Bb
I can't explain it
            G          Bb
I know it's tough to be loved

Dm  Bb     F        C
     and I feel you holding me
Dm  Bb     F        C
Bb
   Oh

Repeat Chorus X2 but add on
        G            Bb
Yes I'd rather be in love
       G            Bb
Oh I'd rather be in love with you
Dm  Bb      F        C
     and I feel you holding me
Bb      F
  Oh

This tab is for a girl I saw on the Northern Line, London
Underground on June 22nd 2002, with her mum been shopping
around 7pm. Before I could get a chance to talk to her, I
realised I was on the wrong f   ing train. I didn't even
catch her name!!! Neways, enough of my tales of love and
loss. This is my 1st tab, and this is one of my fav songs
on Michelle Branch's album. If there any mistakes, give
me a break, I'm only 16!!!

If you do have any enquires feel free to e-mail me at
froilan@legaspi.fsnet.co.uk
Plz, no stalkers!!!
