F  C  Am  G  (x2)

           Am                                     F

All the loneliness has always been a friend of mine
      G                              C

I'm leaving my life in your hand

Am                                      F
People say I'm crazy and that I am blind
G                        C

Risking it all on a chance

Am                                        F

How you got me blind is still a mystery

   G                                C
I can't get you out of my head

Am                                            F
Don't care what is written in your history

     G                                 C
As long as you're here with me

                  F                  C

I don't care who you are, where you're from

Am                     G
What you did, as long as you love me

F                   C
Who you are, where you're from,

                Am                                    G
Don't care what you did as long as you love me

Am                                         F

Every little thing that you have said and done

G                                   C
Feels like it's deep within me

Am                                       F
Doesn't really matter if you're on the run

   G                                     C
It seems like we're meant to be



   Am                         C

I try to hide it so that no one knows

                 F                            F        G       Am
But I guess it shows when you look into my eyes

What you did and where you're coming from (I don't care)

    F                 G
As long as you love me

F  C  Am  G




End on C
