 LYRICS
**********
Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands
Honour to love you

Still I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

You've got this look I can't describe
You make me feel like I'm alive
When everything else is au fait
Without a doubt you're on my side
Heaven has been away too long
Can't find the words to write this song
Oh... Your love

Still I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

Now I have come to understand the way it is
It's not a secret anymore
'cause we've been through that before
From tonight I know that you're the only one
I've been confused and in the dark
Now I understand, yeah yeah, ooh

I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
I wonder why it is
I wont let my guard down
For anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands

Looks good mate but the chords uv described for the chorus, uv only put 5 strings there,not sure if there muddled up or uv left the high E off or what but does that need corrected?

Thanks for noticing, mate :)
There seems to be some sort of layout function that unfortunately screws up the layout more than it improves it. It simply removed a string there, and thank you for that.
I'll see what I can do to get around it to fix the problem. ;)
