    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
