Brighten Your Night With My Day  James Taylor

Words & music by James Taylor
D G (Play 4x)
[D]Daybr[Bm]eak [Em]finds you [A]up and a[F#m]live
Bm G D (Fill #1)
Just as though you could touch a star
But [D]suns[Bm]et seems to [Em]leave you wear[A]y a[F#m]lone
And [Bm]wondering [G]who you [D]are
[F#m] Don't de[Bm]ny that l[F#m]onely feeling ba[Bm]be
That [Em]keeps stealing o[A]n you from [D]deep down ins[F#m]ide
[F#m/C#]Hey, can't you [F#m]see that it's [Bm]no good con[Em]cealing
A f[A]eeling it hur[Bm]ts you to h[C]ide
(Fill #2) Bm F#m
When you can come home to me
Yes, I'm [Em]happy to h[A]ear what you've [D]got
To say to me, b[Bm]aby, a[C]ll the way
(Fill #2) Bm F#m
Girl, you can count on me
Watch those s[C]hadows fade a[A]way
Em A (Fill #3)
And brighten your night with my day
[G]Dayb[A]reak, [D]sun[Bm]set [Em]hot and [A]cold
Running [D]smiles and [F#m]tears
[E] A bright out[A]side to m[E]atch your foolish p[A]ride
But not a [D]word for the l[Bm]onely ye[C]ars
(Fill #2) Bm F#m
Please come back home to me
Now you [Em]won't have to s[A]ay
That you'll [D]stay with me, bab[Bm]y, no, it's not[C] that way
(Fill #2) Bm F#m
Just come back home to me
Watch those s[C]hadows fade a[A]way
And [Em]brighten your ni[A]ght with my...
(Same strumming as intro)
[D]Daybreak[G], sunset
You [D]don't have to cry [G]no more
Now, e[D]verything's gon[G]na be just fine
[D]Watch out, baby,[G] here it comes
[D]Right around the corn[G]er
Here it comes
D G (Fill #3)
Just brighten your night with my day babe hey hey yeah yeah yeah
