Lyrics-
When I look at you
Oh, but I don't know what's real
Once in a while
And you make me laugh

And I'll sleep tomorrow
And it won't be long
I won't stand around
Then you took me down
When you walk away

When you say, "I do"
Oh, but I don't believe in you
I can't forget it
No...oooh

When you sleep tomorrow
And it won't be long
Once in a while
When you make me smile
When you turn your long blonde hair

When I look at you
Oh, but I don't know what's real
Once in a while
And you make me laugh

And I'll sleep tomorrow
And it won't be long
I won't stand around
Then you took me down
When you walk away

I think every other part of the verse has a different chord then Gm#7. I just use a C#5ish for now.
