Verse:
   Dm           Dm        Dm7    Dm6
If I could save time in a bottle
    Gm6                          A7
The first thing that I'd like to do
      Dm         Dm7      B        Gm7    Dm
Is to save every day till eternity passes away
        Gm              A7
Just to spend them with you.

Verse:
   Dm           Dm        Dm7    Dm6
If I could make days last forever
    Gm6                          A7
If words could make wishes come true
      Dm         Dm7      B        Gm7    Dm
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
        Gm              A7
Again, I would spend them with you.

Chorus:
          D              Dmaj7
But there never seems to be enough time
   D6                D                   G       Gmaj7 Em7 A7
To do the things you want to do Once you find them
     D             Dmaj7
I've looked around enough to know
     D6               D                  G         Gmaj7 Em7 A7
That you're the one I want to go through time with.

Verse:
   Dm          Dm       Dm7    Dm6
If I had a box just for wishes
    Gm6                        A7
And dreams that had never come true
    Dm           Dm7   B              Gm7    Dm
The box would be empty except for the memory
       Gm              7
Of how they were answered by you

Chorus:
          D              Dmaj7
But there never seems to be enough time
   D6                D                   G       Gmaj7 Em7 A7
To do the things you want to do Once you find them
     D             Dmaj7
I've looked around enough to know
     D6               D                  G         Gmaj7 Em7 A7
That you're the one I want to go through time with.
