If You Could Only See
Acoustic Version
Originally Record by: Tonic

This is the version I’ve been playing since I first learned the song back in high 
school.  
I’ve added a lot of improvisations since then, so it’s not exactly like you would 
hear when Tonic plays it acoustically.  
So don’t expect it to be dead on.  
This was one of the first songs I learned front to back and to this day, somehow 
manage to impress myself with it.

***Capo on 1*** – This is usually relative to voice, but I can’t stand playing it 
any other way regardless.  
Also, the capo on 1 is normal for this song.

Most of this is open/basic chords, except when the part comes up “Sayin’ you love 
but you don’t”, I like to use bar chords for C & G.  
This is the only time I utilize the bar form. 
Of course most performers use the bar form on the verse chords as well, but I 
prefer open when playing it acoustically.

Lastly, a lot of people have issues figuring out the strumming pattern.  
This cannot be explained.  
You just have to take is slow and work your way up to the speed and rhythm that 
best fits YOU, even if it means adding bars to the song to make it work.  Over 
time though, you’ll figure out the best way to perform it for yourself.

			Am			C
If you could only see the way she loves me

Then maybe you would understand
 	    Am		C
Why I feel this way about our love
G*			G/F
And what I must do

Quick Interlude (G& F are barred)
Am	Em	G	F

G				A
Seems the road less traveled
G				A	C slide up to C*
Shows happiness unraveled
G				A
And you got to take a little dirt
G			A	F
To keep what you love
 			C slide up to C*
That’s what you gotta do


Am		   C
Sayin you love but you don’t
G			 F
You give your love but you won’t
G							  F
You’re stretching out your arms to something that’s just not there

Give your heart when you can
