    There’s still a little bit of your taste, in my mouth
    Em7                    Cadd9         G       G/F#

    Theres still a little bit of your words, I long to hear
    Em7               Cadd9     G          G/F#  
    You step a little closer to me, so close that I can't see what's 
    / C - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - D11 - - /
    going on

    It's not hard to fall, and I don't wanna lose
     
             / C - - - / - - - - / - - - - / - D11 - - /
    It’s not hard to grow, when you know that you just don't know
