     F                 C (2)

If you were to wake up

F (2)                        C          F   C
     And I were beside you

            F                 C (4)
Would you gently smile dear

                         G   Gsus4   G

and whisper my name

        F                  C (2)
And would you remember

F (2)                          C          F   C
    The way that I held you

F                      C (2)
And would you want me

G (2)                      C     F   C
   To hold you again

  F                  C (2)
Time reaches to you

F (2)                 C          F   C
    Just like a willow

          F                  C (4)
That bends to the water

                            G   Gsus4   G
And clings to the shore

          F              C (2)
And there was a time dear

F (2)                              C          F   C
    That once you did love me

          F              C (2)
And there was a time

G (2)                                 C      F   C
      You loved me no more

  F                  C (2)
Rain on your window

F (2)                        C          F   C
     Light on your pillow

         F                C (4)
The way you lie sleeping

                G   Gsus4   G
Is it like before

         F              C (2)
For there was a time dear

F (2)                                C          F   C
     That once you did love me

          F              C (2)
And there was a time

G (2)                                 C      F   C
      You loved me no more
