 say              Oh__________________
Verse 1 and 4 are the same.
Verse 2:
	Whereever I am, girl,
	I'm always walking with you,
	I'm always walking with you,
	But I look and you're not there,
	Whoever I'm with I'm always,
	Always talking to you,
	I'm always talking to you
	Sad that you can't hear,
	It always adds up to one thing, honey,
	When I look and you're not there.

Verse 3:
	I need to know you,
	Need to feel my arms around you,
	Feel my arms around you,
	Like a sea around the shore.
	Each night and day I pray,
	In hope that I might find you,
	In hope that I might find you,
	Because hearts can do no more,
	Can do no more,
	It always end up to one thing honey,
	Still I kneel upon the floor.

The words written with the tab is a guide line to
where they're supposed to be sung, but it's not very accurate.
The best thing is to listen to the song I you don't know
how it goes.

Questions and comments welcome.
