Intro -x2-: F  F7  Bb  Bb 

F                    A7                          Dm
Didn't they always say we were the lucky ones?
              Gm       C
I guess that we were once
Gm             C
Babe, we were once
F                  A7
  But luck will leave you cause
It is a faithless friend
Gm            A7                       Dm
And in the end when life has got you down
Dm          Gm7                       C                F
You've got someone here that you can wrap your arms around

         F  F7        Bb     Bb  
So, hold o-o-on to me tight
      F  F7         Bb     C
Hold o-o-on to me tonight
Dm                     Dm7  
We are stronger here together
              Bb        Am6
Than we could ever be alone
G                C
So hold on to me  Don't you ever let me go...

Interlude: F  F7  Bb  Bb  

Verse -same as first-:
There's a thousand ways for things to fall apart
But it's no one's fault, no it's not our fault
And baby all the plans we made might not work out
But I have no doubt, even though it's hard to see
I've got faith in us and I believe in you and me

So hold on to me tight
Hold on, I promise it'll be allright
Cause it's you and me together
And baby all we've got is time
So hold on to me, hold on to me tonight

Gm           F                Eb            Ab
  There's so many dreams that we have given up
Gm       F                 Bb
  Take a look at all we've got
Cm            Gm
And with this kind of love
Cm             Gm        F     F7
What we've got here is enough

        Bb  Bb7      Eb     F7
So hold o-o-on to me tight
     Bb  Bb7                    Eb     F -Gb-
Hold o-o-on, I promise it'll be allright
             Gm            F
Cause we are stronger here together
              Eb        Dm
Then we could ever be alone
          Cm        F
Just hold on to me
          -Gb-        Gm  C7
Don't you ever let me go
     Cm        F   -Gb-         Gm     C7
Hold on to me, it's gonna be alright
     Cm        F
Hold on to me
Bb  Bb7    Eb  F
Bb           Bb7               Eb   F    Bb
  They always say we were the lucky ones
