[C]Just want something [F]beautif[G]ul, I want to [C]look in[F] your e[G]yes
I want to [C]listen to you [F]sing my f[Am]avorite [G]song and c[C]ry[F] [G]
[C]Want to reach into your [F]ocean[G]s, want to cal[C]m your [F]sea when it [G]storms
I want to [C]let you take h[F]old of this si[Am]nking sh[G]ip and lead me h[C]ome[F] [G]
[F]But I'm n[G]ot what you n[C]eed
[F]I've known y[G]ou so much st[C]ronger
[F]But you are s[G]uch a pleasant f[C]icti[B]on to[Am] me
[F]So I guess that I'll dr[C]eam of you a li[F]ttle lo[G]nger

I want to pack up and move with you, oh and never look behind
I want to take your hand as we chase down the skyline
I want to tell you my stories, wake you up in the middle of the night
I want you to tell me when I'm wrong, and I just want you to smile at me when I'm right
[Am]Don't want to ta[B]ke the lig[C]ht from your [F]eyes[G]
It would be nice if I could [C]hold you ti[F]ght[G]
While I la[C]y in the s[F]and[G]
You could [C]love what's l[F]eft of this [Am]lonely excu[G]se of a man
