If A Promise Aint Enough  Hall and Oates

Don't wanna [A9]open your [A]heart
You're [A9]afraid from the [A]start
That a [DM7]new love's gonna get you down,
There was [A9]something you should [A]know
Before you [A9]give up and [A]go
I don't [DM7]believe in a run-around  [Bm7]
I just wanted to [C#m7]find myself
And s[DM7]how you [C#m7]how I [Bm7]feel.

If a promise ain't [DM7]enough[E]
A9 A 2x
Then a touch says everything
Gotta hold you in my [DM7]arms   [E]
A9 A 2x
Do you feel what I mean
Know that my [DM7]heart just tells me [E]what to say
But words can [C#m7]only prove so [F#m]much
If a promise ain't [DM7]enough [E]
Hold on to my l[A]ove.
Though my wo[A9]rds can't [A]describe
How I'm [A9]feelin' all i[A]nside,
Does my [DM7]touch say anything to you,
I'm not [A9]afraid to take [A]time
'Cause I[A9] know you'll [A]find,
That I'm [DM7]real and my touch is true,[Bm7]
It's taken a lifetime to [C#m7]find my heart
And I [DM7]give it [C#m7]all to [Bm7]you.

(Repeat Chorus) A DM7 2x
[DM7]Oh yeah
[Bm7]Oh, it took a lifetime to [C#m7]find what I want
I won't [DM7]let it [C#m7]get a[Bm7]way.
(Repeat Chorus)
If a promise ain't [DM7]enoug[E]h
..... Hold on!

A C#m7 Bm7 E...
If a promise ain't enough
Promises - promises - promises - hold on to my love,
Promises - promises - promises - hold on to my love .....
(Repeat and Fade)
