Verse:
D
Here I am waiting

I'll have to leave soon
G        A
Why am I holding on
D
We knew this day would come

We knew it all along
G          A
How did it come so fast

Pre-Chorus:
Bm               G
This is our last night
         D
But it's late
        G      A        Bm
And I'm trying not to sleep
         G
Cause I know
        D
When I wake
       G        A     D
I will have to slip away

Chorus:
              D                    Bm
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
    G                            D
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
              D                  Bm
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
    G                             D
But tonight I need to hold you so close
D        Bm       G       D
Oh-woah, Oh-woah, Oh-woah Ohhhhhh
D        Bm       G       D
Oh-woah, Oh-woah, Oh-woah Ohhhhhh

Verse:
D
Here I am staring

At you're perfection
G
In my arms
A
So beautiful
D
The sky is getting bright

The stars are burning out
G
Somebody 
A
Slow it down

Pre-Chorus:
        Bm       G
This is way too hard
         D
Cause I know
         G         A
When the sun comes up
        Bm
I will leave
        G        D  
This is my last glance
           G       A    D
That will soon be memory

Chorus:
              D                    Bm
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
    G                            D
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
              D                  Bm
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
    G                             D
But tonight I need to hold you so close
D        Bm       G       D
Oh-woah, Oh-woah, Oh-woah Ohhhhhh
D        Bm       G       D
Oh-woah, Oh-woah, Oh-woah Ohhhhhh

Bridge:
A
I never wanted to stop

Because I don't want to
G                D
Start all over, Start all over
A
I was afraid of the dark

But now it's all that I want
G                           D
All that I want, All that I want

Chorus:
             D                   Bm
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
    G                            D
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
             D                   Bm
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
    G                             D
But tonight I need to hold you so close
             D                   Bm
And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
    G                            D
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
             D                   Bm
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
    G                             D
But tonight I need to hold you so close


D        Bm       G       D
Oh-woah, Oh-woah, Oh-woah Ohhhhhh

Oh-woah, Oh-woah, Oh-woah Ohhhhhh
