Intro: G Gmaj7 Am C D

        G
Oh it's sitting on the tip of my tongue 
         Gmaj7
as we're quietly strolling along. 
          Am
I've been meaning to tell you for so long now
          C                 D
that it's got me stuck in a hold somehow. 
       G
You're looking me right in the eye. 
        Gmaj7
We stop still and the world rushes by 
         Am
and as I struggle to hide it inside I find that 
     Bb                    G
I lack the courage to tell you. 
    Bb                  G
And all I can manage to say is


F                 C
"You are by far my favourite. 
              F                                 C
and I've been thinking it's about time that you knew. 
     Dm                F
That you are by far my favourite. 
      Dm               F                  C
And I hope that I'm by far your favourite too." 
      Dm               F                  C
And I hope that I'm by far your favourite too." 


       G
You're looking at me ever so strange. 
             Gmaj7
I guess it's time I should really explain. 
            Am
You see I'm ever so glad that I met you now 
    C                 D
I'm constantly being amazed at how you 
    G
make all my troubles dissolve
      Gmaj7
Every problems you easily solve
      Am
Every kiss leaves me wanting another and my 
       Bb                          G
heart hits the floor when I see you. 
    Bb                    G
And I feel so sure when I say that 


F                 C
"You are by far my favourite. 
              F                                 C
and I've been thinking it's about time that you knew. 
     Dm                F
That you are by far my favourite. 
      Dm               F                  C
And I hope that I'm by far your favourite too." 
      Dm               F                  C
And I hope that I'm by far your favourite too." 


   E7
So will you forgive this stuttering fool? 
     E7                  E7
This mess of a girl? Oh, please don't be cruel. 


        F                 C
'Cause you are by far my favourite. 
              F                                 C
and I've been thinking it's about time that you knew. 
     Dm                F
That you are by far my favourite. 
      Dm               F                  C
And I hope that I'm by far your favourite too." 
      Dm               F                  C
And I hope that I'm by far your favourite too."
