Verse 1:
                B                 E
I wish I was a flame dancing in a candle
                  B                      E
Lighting up your living room high on the mantle
                   Dbm                 E
I could bring some romance without any scandal
                B                       E           B
And then when you were done you'd just put me out
 

               B                     E
I wish I was a tune you sang in your kitchen
              B                 E
Putting your groceries away and washing your dishes
        Dbm                                    E
I could float around your tongue and ease the tension
              B                        E            B
And then when you were done you'd just quiet down
 
Chorus:
         E
But if I get too close
         B
Will the magic fade?
        Ebm             Abm
Would I turn you off or away?
      E
If I pull you in
        B
Would I push you out
   Ebm                     E
Of something here you care about?
         Dbm             E
Well I'm at a loss for what to do
        Gb           Gb7
But I'm drawn to you
 
Verse 2:
                B                          E
I wish I was a sweater wrapped around your hips
                    B                   E
And when it got too cold into me you'd slip
             Dbm                        E
And when the sun came back you would hang me up
            B               E           B
And I would watch you while you undress
 
Chorus:
         E
But if I get too close
         B
Will the magic fade?
        Ebm             Abm
Would I turn you off or away?
      E
If I pull you in
        B
Would I push you out
   Ebm                     E
Of something here you care about?
         Dbm             E
Well I'm at a loss for what to do
        Gb              Gb7
But I'm drawn to you

Verse 3:
          B
I'm not a song
           E
I am not a sweater
           B
I'm not a fire
               E
I am something better
      Dbm                       E
I'm a man in love writing you a letter
         B
Will you take it
         E
Will you keep it
         Dbm
Will you read it
E
Believe it
  B
I love you
    E
I'm sorry.
