E[C]v'rything went wrong,[Gdim] a[G7]nd the whole day long,
And f[Dm7]eel [G7]so b[C]lue.[Fdim] [G7]
F[C]or the longest [Gdim]while, [G7] I'd forgot to smile,
Then [Dm7] I [G7]met [C]you[C7].
N[Em]ow that my b[C7]lue days have pa[B7]ssed,
Now that I've found you at [Em]last.[Gdim]
[C]I'll be loving you always, w[G7]ith a love that's true al[C]ways.
[C]When the things you p[C7]lanned n[E]eed a helping hand,
[B7]I will understand [E]always, [G7]always.
[C]Days may not be fair alw[C7]ays; [B7] [Bb7]
[A7]That's when I'll be there al[Dm]ways.
[F6]Not for just an[Dm7-5] hour, [C]not for just a [D9]day,
[G7]Not for just a year, but [C]always.[(G7)]
[C]Dreams will all come [Gdim]true [G7] growing old with you,
And [Dm7]time w[G7]ill f[C]ly.[Fdim] [G7]
[C]Caring each day [Gdim]more [G7] than the day before,
The sp[Dm7]ring r[G7]olls [C]by.[C7]
[Em]Then when the s[C7]pringtime has g[B7]one,
Then will my love linger [Em]on.[Gdim]
