Verse:
G                                                       Cadd9
If you’re not the one then why does my soul feel glad, today?        
    G                                            Cadd9
If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours, this way?
 G                                               Cadd9
If you are not mine then why does your heart return, my call?
    G                                               Cadd9
If you were not mine would I have the strength to stand, at all?

Bridge:
D                      C
I never know what the future brings,
       D                     Am
But I know your here with me now, 
                 G                                 Cadd9
We’ll make it through and I hope you are the one I share my life with,

Chorus:
G                         Am              Cadd9           G
I don’t wanna run away, but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
G          Am                Cadd9                              Em
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
            D             Am                 Cadd9
Is there any way that I can stay in your eyes?

Verse:
D                                      Cadd9
If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
D                                            Cadd9
If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head?
D                                              Cadd9
If you’re not for me then why does this distance maim my life,
    D                                     Cadd9
If your not for me then why do I dream of you, as my wife?

Bridge:
D                       Cadd9
I don’t know why you’re so far away, 
       D                     Am
But I know that this much is true,
                 G                                  Cadd9             
We’ll make it through and I hope you are the one I share my life with,
       G                         Cadd9             
And I wish that you could be the one I die with,
G                               Cadd9                
And I pray that you’re the one I build my home with,
D           Cadd9                  G
I hope I love you all my life.

Chorus:
G                         Am              Cadd9           G
I don’t wanna run away, but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
G          Am                Cadd9                              Em
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
            D             Am                 Cadd9
Is there any way that I can stay in your eyes?

Bridge:
E               Cadd9                  D                      Cadd9
Cos I miss you body and soul, so strong that it takes my breath away,
        E          Cadd9               D                          G     
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today,
       Em          Cadd9                 D
Cos I love you, whether its wrong or right,
                  G            Cadd9                       D          G
And though I can’t be with you tonight, you know my heart is by your side.

Chorus:
G                         Am              Cadd9           G
I don’t wanna run away, but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
G          Am                Cadd9                              Em
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
            D             Am                 Cadd9
Is there any way that I can stay in your eyes?

  1. nice

    For the second verse that starts with “If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?” I use G again instead of D, and I cheat by using Em instead of E throughout the song (it sounds all right to me :) ).
