VERSE 1
            E/G#        Gadd9           Gadd9        Aadd9
We've been together for quite some time
             E/G#                Gadd9*    Gadd9*    Aadd9
I'd think by now you'd know
                 E/G#            Gadd9       Gadd9   Aadd9
It would take forever to get you off my mind
                E/G#       Gadd9*    Gadd9*     Aadd9
If ever you decide to go
                 E/G#      Gadd9     Gadd9      Aadd9
I guess i got a little insecurity
             E/G#          Gadd9*    Gadd9*     Aadd9
When it's concerning you
                  E/G#              Gadd9       Gadd9   Aadd9
I guess I'm just afraid that if you ever leave
             E/G#              Gadd9*
I'd be in a messed-up state of blue
 
 
CHORUS
N.C.          Aadd9    E/G#     Aadd9    E/G#
And I'd be so lonely
Bsus4     Bsus4
Without you loving me
Bsus4    Bsus4          Aadd9    E/G#     Aadd9    E/G#
I know    it's gonna be lonely
Bsus4     Bsus4       Bsus4              Bsus4
Without you giving me every little single thing that i need
G7(#5)
Lonely
 
 
VERSE 2
Aadd9              E/G#            Gadd9       Gadd9        Aadd9
Whatever's in your kiss, it really turns me on
                E/G#               Gadd9*      Gadd9*       Aadd9
Till I go right out of my mind
                   E/G#        Gadd9           Gadd9        Aadd9
And who could ever resist your accent from Paris
           E/G#            Gadd9*      Gadd9*       Aadd9
It gets me every time
                        E/G#     Gadd9        Gadd9        Aadd9
I betcha that you never knew that in my dreams
    E/G#         Gadd9*      Gadd9*       Aadd9
You are the star
                   E/G#            Gadd9      Gadd9        Aadd9
The only bummer is that you always want to leave
            E/G#           Gadd9*
Who do you think you are
 
 
CHORUS
N.C                          Aadd9    E/G#     Aadd9    E/G#
Don't you know it's gonna be lonely

Without you giving me every little single thing that i need

I never could resist
