[Intro]

Am  Am/G#  Am/G  D/F#  F  E7


[Verse 1][

   Am           Am/G#     Am/G  D/F#
If I could save time in a bottle
      F                          E7
The first thing that I'd like to do
       Am        Am/G
Is to save ev’ry-day 
        F      Dm7    Am
‘Til eternity passes away
         Dm7            E7
Just to spend them with you


[Verse 2]

   Am           Am/G#      Am/G   D/F#
If I could make days last forever
     F                           E7
If words could make wishes come true
     Am          Am/G            F        Dm7
I'd save ev’ry - day like a treasure and then
Am              Dm7            E7
Again, I would spend them with you


[Chorus]

            A            A/G#
But there never seems to  be  enough time
   D/F#                 E
To  do  the things you want to do
          D        A/C#  Bm   E
Once you find them
       A            A/G#
I've looked around enough to know
      D/F#             E
That you're the one I want to go through 
D          A/C#  Bm  E
Time with


[Interlude]

Am  Am/G#  Am/G  D/F#  F  E7 


[Verse 3]

   Am      A/G#           Am/G   D/F#
If I had a box  just for wishes
      F                         E7
And dreams that had never come true
    Am           Am/G     F             Dm7
The box would be empty, except for the mem’ry of 
Am              Dm7       E7
How they were answered by you


[Chorus]

            A            A/G#
But there never seems to  be  enough time
   D/F#                 E
To  do  the things you want to do
          D        A/C#  Bm   E
Once you find them
       A            A/G#
I've looked around enough to know
      D/F#             E
That you're the one I want to go through 
D          A/C#  Bm  E
Time with
