Intro: D Em7 G D

D		Em7
  Just about the time the shadows call
G			D
  I undress my mind and dare you to follow
		   Em7
Paint a portrait of my mystery
G			D
  Only close my eyes and you are here with me
  Em7
A nameless face to think I see
  G				  D
To sit and watch the waves with me till they're gone
  Em7				  G
A heart I'd swear I'd recognize is made out of
	       C	   G	
My own devices.. Could I be wrong?

Chorus:
    D		  Em7	     G
The time that I've taken
  D	      Em7	G
I pray is not wasted
	D      Em7   G		   D   Em7	G
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?


D			Em7
  Sleepless nights you creep inside of me
G			    D
  Paint your shadows on the breath that we share
			  Em7
You take more than just my sanity
G		      D
  You take my reason not to care.
   Em7
No ordinary wings I'll need
     G			     D
The sky itself will carry me back to you
     Em7			      G
The things I dream that I can do I'll open up
		   C
The moon for you
		G
Just come down soon

Chorus:
    D		  Em7	     G
The time that I've taken
  D	      Em7	G
I pray is not wasted
	D      Em7   G		   D   Em7	G
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
  D	  Em7	 G	D	       Em7	G	
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
		      D		Em7    G
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
D    Em7   G
One sweet love.


A		     G
  Savor the sorrow to soften the pain sip on
    Bm
The southern rain
     A					   G
As I do, I don't look don't touch don't do anything
		    Em-Gbm  G
But hope that there is a you.


     Em7
The earth that is the space between,
    G			    D
I'd banish it from under me...to get to you.
    Em7				G
Your unexpected love provides my solitary's suicide...
C	      G
oh I wish I knew

Chorus:
    D		  Em7	     G
The time that I've taken
  D	      Em7	G
I pray is not wasted
	D      Em7   G		   D   Em7	G
Have I already tasted my piece of one sweet love?
  D	  Em7	 G	D	       Em7	G	
Ready and waiting for a heart worth the breaking
		      D		Em7    G
But I'd settle for an honest mistake in the name of
D    Em7   G
One sweet love.

D    Em7   G
One sweet love.
