G                     Dsus4/F#        Cadd9             G          Em7
   Oh Florida please, be still tonight, don't disturb this love of mine 
                  D              Cadd9             G
Look how she's so serene, you've gotta help me out
G                      Dsus4/F#   Cadd9                    G                 Em7
   And count the stars to form in lines and find the words we'll sing in time
                D            Cadd9                     G
I want to keep her dreaming, it's my one wish, I won't forget this
 
 
PRE CHORUS
 
Cadd9         Dsus4   D
I'm outdated, over - rated
Cadd9            Em7      D
Morning seems so far away
 
 
CHORUS
 
G              Dsus4/F#
So I'll sing a melody
  Cadd9
And hope to God she's listening
Em7                   D
Sleeping softly while I sing
G                Dsus4/F#
And I'll be your memories
Cadd9
Your lullaby for all the times
Em7                   D                G
Hoping that my voice could get it right
 
 
**Now, one guitar repeats the intro and the other does a little diddle.. :D

G                Dsus4/F#  Cadd9                    G                Em7
   If luck is on my side tonight, my clumsy tongue will make it right
                       D           Cadd9            G
And wrists that touch, it isn't much, but it's enough
G             Dsus4/F# Cadd9                   G                Em7
   To form imaginary lines, forget your scars, we'll forget mine
                    D        Cadd9
The hours change so fast, oh God, please make this last
