       C

1. Yes I do, I believe that one day I will be, where I was,

                                           F

   right there, right next to you.

 

    And it's hard, the days just seem so dark,

 

    the moon, the stars, are nothing without you.

 

               C

2. Your touch, your skin, where do I begin ?

                                                                           F

    No words can explain, the way I'm missing you.

 

    The night, this emptiness, this hole that I'm inside,

 

    these tears, they tell their own story.

 

            Dm                  F                           Am       - G

    You told me not to cry when you were gone,

                 Dm                   F                                   C       - G7

    but the feeling’s overwhelming, it's much too strong.

 

       C                   Am              Dm    F

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you ?

          C                         Am                             Dm

And make sure you're alright, I'll take care of you.

            F                               G                            - C

And I don't want to be here if I can't be with you        tonight.

 

           Em                                                       F

3. I'm reaching out to you, can you hear my call ? Oh.

            Em  

    This hurt that I've been through,

                                                                  F       - G

    I'm missing you, I’m missing you like crazy.

 

       C             G   Am              Dm     F

Can I lay by your side, next to you, you ?

          C                       G  Am                          Dm

And make sure you're alright, I'll take care of you.

            F                               G                            - Dm

And I don't want to be here if I can't be with you           tonight.
