G        C
The light shines
       Em        D             G C Em D
It's getting hot on my shoulder
G       C
I don't mind,
 Em    D                     G C Em D
This time it doesn't matter
G              C
Cause your friends,
Em          D                   G C Em D
They look good, but you look better
C                    C-D-Em                  G
Don't you know all night I've been waiting for a girl like you to come around, round, round?

             G        C
Under the lights tonight
        Em           D                  G                C
You turned around, and you stole my heart
          Em    D             G                C
With just one look, when I saw your face
  Em      D
I fell in love
          G       C    Em     D      G           C 
It took a minute girl to steal my heart tonight - eh eh eh eh -
          Em    D          G  C
With just one look, yeah - eh eh eh eh -
    Em             D
I waited for a girl like you

      G C
I'm weaker
      Em             D         G      C Em D       
My words fall and they hit the ground
     G C    Em         D             G      C Em D
Oh life, come on head, don't you fail me now?
   G          C
I start to say,
        Em     D               G      C Em D
"I think I love you", but I make no sound
C                       C-D-Em                            G
You know 'cause all my life, I've been waiting for a girl like you to come around

             G        C
Under the lights tonight
        Em           D                  G                C
You turned around, and you stole my heart
          Em    D             G                C
With just one look, when I saw your face
  Em      D
I fell in love
          G       C    Em     D      G           C 
It took a minute girl to steal my heart tonight - eh eh eh eh -
          Em    D          G  C
With just one look, yeah - eh eh eh eh -
    Em             D
I waited for a girl like you

Em                 D                         C
There is no other place that I would rather be
         G              G/Gb
Than right here with you tonight
Em               D                         C
As we lay on the ground I put my arms around you
G
And we can stay here tonight
Em                        D            C              G
Cause there's so much that I wanna say, I wanna say

             G        C
Under the lights tonight
        Em           D                  G                C
You turned around, and you stole my heart
          Em    D             G                C
With just one look, when I saw your face
  Em      D
I fell in love
          G       C    Em     D      G           C 
It took a minute girl to steal my heart tonight - eh eh eh eh -
          Em    D          G  C
With just one look, yeah - eh eh eh eh -
    Em             D
I waited for a girl like you

    This is really good and I like playing because of the easy chords but the quick changes :) just a quick thing, if you listen to the song some of the chords are in the wrong place so the changes don’t happen as often as they should. But other than that great!
