[Intro]
G  G/F#  Asus4  D
G G/F# Asus4
G  G/F#  Asus4  D
G  G/F#  Asus4  A

[Verse 1]
    A                       G            D
Oh, baby don't it feel like heaven right now
         A                          G  D
Don't it feel like something from a dream
      A                  G          D
Yeah, I've never nothing quite like this
         Bm        
Don't it feel like tonight might never be again
      G
Baby, we know better than to try and pretend
       A
Honey, no one could've ever told me about this
I said yeh, yeh, yeah yeah yeah yeah

[Chorus]
    G   G/F#       A       D
The waiting is the hardest part
G     G/F#         A       
Every day you see one more card
    G          G/F#       A              D
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
    G   G/F#       A       D       G  G/F#  A  D
The waiting is the hardest part

[Verse 2]
Well yeah I might've chased a couple women around
All it ever got me was down
Yeah, then there were those that made me feel good
But never as good as I feel right now
Baby you're the only one that's ever known how
to make me wanna live like I wanna live now
I said yeh, yeh, yeh yeh yeh yeh

[Chorus]
The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more yard
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

[Bridge]
Bm               Bar2
Oh don't let 'em kill you babe
Bm            Bar2
Don't let 'em get to you
Bm            Bar2
Don't let 'em kill you babe
Bm            Bar2
Don't let 'em get to you
A
I'll be your bleedin' heart
D
I'll be your cryin' fool
G
Don't let this go too far
F#
Don't let it get to you

[Solo]
A G D
A G D
A G D Bm G A

Yeh, yeh, yeh yeh yeh yeh

[Chorus]
The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more yard
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part
The waiting is the hardest part

In the bridge, and videos exist to back this up,Tom actually plays Bm7 to A during the first two lines in the bridge,more noticable in the Pack Up The Plantation live video than any others.
