This is probably the best song Spice Girls have ever done. I'm one
of
those sad bastards who actually likes the Spice Girls (and admits
it)
so I decided to work it out. It's fairly simple in its chord
progressions, and therefore quite easy to interpret in a way that
suits you best.

Chords and lyrics:
[Bm/E/G/D](aah... say you'll be there)
[Bm]I'm giving you [E]everything
All that [G]joy can bring, this I sw[D]ear
[Bm]Last time t[E]hat we had this conversation
[G]I decided we should be fri[D]ends
[Bm]But now we're g[E]oing 'round in circles
Tell me w[G]ill this deja-vu never e[D]nd?
And now you tell me that you've fallen in love
Well I never ever thought that would be
This time you gotta take it easy
Throwing far too much emotions at me

Bridge:
But any f[C]ool can see they're fa[Bm]lling
I gotta m[Bb]ake you unders[A]tand
chorus:
[Bm]I'm giving you [E]everything
All that j[G]oy can bring, this I sw[D]ear
[Bm]And all that I w[E]ant from you
Is a p[G]romise you will be th[D]ere

Bridge 2:
[Bm] [E]Say you will be there
[Bm] [-]Won't you say it with me?
If you put two and two together
You will see what our friendship is four
If you can't work this equation
Then I guess I'll have to show you the door
Bridge: (repeat riff B)
There is no need to say you love me
It would be better left unsaid
Chorus:
I'm giving you everything
All that joy can bring, this I swear
And all that I want from you
Is a promise you will be there
Yeah... I want you
Solo: Bm/E/G/D
(Just play around here, it shouldn't be to hard to get
the
hang of it.)
Bridge: (repeat riff B)
Any f[C]ool can see they're f[Bm]alling
I gotta m[Bb]ake you unders[A]tand
(n.c.)
I'll give you everything, on this I swear
Just promise you'll always be there
Repeat chorus to fade
(add. lyrics: I'm giving you everything/all that joy can
bring/yes
I swear)
