Verse:

E  F#m  G#m  F#m                              E
I  love you        'cos you tell me things I want to know

 E  F#m  G#m  F#m                       E           G#7
And it's true      that it really only goes to show that I know

     C#m              A                F#m  B7
That I I I I  would never ever ever be blue

 E  F#m    G#m  F#m                      E
Now you're mine      my happiness near makes me cry

 E  F#m G#m  F#m                            E        G#7
And in  time        you'll understand the reason why that I cry

     C#m
It's not because I'm sad

                A                        E    E+   (e.g., 076550)
But you're the only love that I've ever had


Middle:
         A      B7                 E   E+
I can't believe   it's happened to me

          A     B7               E     B7
I can't conceive   of any more misery


Verse:
 E  F#m G#m              F#m
Ask me  why   I'll say I love you   [second time jump to ending]

         G#m                A   E   E+
And I'm always thinking of you

 [now repeat from the middle]


Ending:

           G#m                A    E           A
