Intro:
F C Dm C Bb F C
F C Dm C Bb F C
 
Verse 1:
F                                 Dm
They met at school, that's how it goes
                       Bb
Some drinks and then a rose
                    C    F
Then plans to meet again
                               Dm
He wrote her poems, songs, and prose
                   Bb
She knew that he'd propose
                  C
She only wondered when
 
Pre-Chorus:
    Dm                        F
One night before they went to bed
                   Bb
He kneeled on both knees
                    C
And this is what he said:
 
Chorus:
  F           Bb  C
I may not be wise
    Dm       C       Bb
But I won't save the day
    F          Bb  C
But look in my eyes
    Dm         C     Bb
And know I'll always stay
    Bbm          F
And I won't run away
Bbm          F C   Dm C Bb F   C
I won't run away
 
Verse 2:
F                             Dm
Some years went by they had a child
                           Bb
He was funny, strange, and mild
                       C     F
Their love for him ran deep
                                       Dm
Some nights his dreams would drive him wild
                Bb                     C
So into bed she piled to help him fall asleep
 
Pre-Chorus:
Dm                           F
One night he couldn't get to bed
                       Bb
So she kneeled on both knees
                     C
And this is what she said:
 
Chorus:
  F           Bb  C
I may not be wise
    Dm       C       Bb
But I won't save the day
    F          Bb
But look in my eyes
    Dm         C     Bb
And know I'll always stay
    Bbm          F
And I won't run away
Bbm          F  C   Dm C Bb F   Dm C
I won't run away
 
Verse 3:
F                          Dm
You say it's safer on your own
                   Bb
You'd rather sleep alone
                     C
Then grow to need me there
F                      Dm
But I hope now you can see
                           Bb
What my mom and dad showed me
              C
I'm not going anywhere
 
Pre-Chorus:
Dm                            F
I love you more and more each day
                  Bb
To love is not to leave
                  C
So hear me when I say:
 
Chorus:
  F           Bb  C
I may not be wise
    Dm       C       Bb
But I won't save the day
    F          Bb
But look in my eyes
    Dm         C     Bb
And know I'll always stay
    Bbm          F  C   Dm C Bb F   C     F C   Dm C Bb
And I won't run away
Bbm          F
I won't run away
