[Verse]

                          Em  
I guess this time you're really leaving
G                              D 
I heard your suitcase say goodbye 
                             Em
Well as my broken heart lies bleeding 
G                          D
You say true love, it's suicide 
                               Em 
You say you cried a thousand rivers
G                        D   
And now you're swimming for the shore 
                           Em
You left me drowning in my tears 
G                         A
And you won't save me anymore 
A
I pray to God you'll give me one more chance, girl 


[Chorus]

D
I'll be there for you 
D/C# - Bm                            
       These five words I swear to you 
           G
When you breathe I want to be the air for you 
A       C       G   D
I'll be there for you 
                            
I'd live and I'd die for you 
D/C# - Bm                                 
       Steal the sun from the sky for you 
  G                    
Words can't say what a love can do 
A       C       G   D
I'll be there for you

[Verse]

                                  Em
I know you know, we've had some good times.
G                            D
Now they have their own hiding place
                    Em
I can't promise you tomorrow
G                           A
But I can't buy back yesterday
                               G                                     A    
And baby you know my hands are dirty (oh woman you know my hands are dirty)
                              D  D/C# Bm
But I wanted to be your valentine
                          G
I'll be the water when you get thirsty baby 
                             A
When you get drunk I'll be the wine


[Chorus]

D
I'll be there for you 
D/C# - Bm                            
       These five words I swear to you 
           G
When you breathe I want to be the air for you 
A       C       G   D
I'll be there for you 
                            
I'd live and I'd die for you 
D/C# - Bm                                 
       Steal the sun from the sky for you 
  G                    
Words can't say what a love can do 
A       C       G   D
I'll be there for you

And I wasn't there when you were happy (I wasn't there to make you happy)
                             D  D/C# Bm
I wasn't there when you were down 
                           G
I didn't mean to miss your birthday, baby 
                                        A
I wish I'd seen you blow those candles out (Scream)


[Chorus]

I'll be there for you

Words can't say what a love can do 
A       C       G   D
I'll be there for you

B       D      A   E
