VERSE
 
C
I need some time, just deliver the things that I
   Am                                             F
need for now.  Everything that I feel's like a warm
                                          G
deep calm casting over me.  And it's taking
 
me to somewhere new.
 
            C
If you believe that everything's all right
       Am
you won't be all alone tonight.  And I'd be 
     F
blessed by the light of your company,
            G
slowly lifting me to somewhere new.
 
 
CHORUS
 
C                            F
Oh, can't you tell I haven't slept very well
          Am          G       F
since the last time that we spoke
         C/E                      F
You said please understand if I see you again
       Am   G     F
don't even say hello.
 
Please...
 
C/E F C G
Am F C G
 
 
VERSE
 
             C/E                 F
What a night it is when you live like this
            C                     G
and you're coming up beneath the clouds
              Am                   F
don't let me down.  All the love's still there
       C                            G
I just don't know what to do with it now
 
              C/E                      F
You know I still can't believe we both did some things
         C                   G
I don't even want to think about
               Am                       F
Just say you love me and I'll say I'm sorry
                 C                     G
I don't want anybody else to feel this way
 
No, no, no.
 
 
CHORUS
 
C                             F
   Can't you tell I haven't slept very well
           Am         G       F
since the last time that we spoke.
         C/E                            F
I said please understand I've been drinking again
    Am     G     F (pause)
and all I do is hope.
 
Please...
 
C/E    F    C    G
Stay
        Am   F    C    G
Please, stay
 
 
BRIDGE
 
          C/E                    F
I'll admit I was wrong about everything
          C                           G
'Cuz I'm high and I don't wanna come down.
          Am                       F
All the fun that we had on your mother's couch
        C                    G
I don't even want to think about
 
          C/E                    F
I'm not strong enough for the both of us
         C             G                Am   F
what was I supposed to do?  You know I love you
  C    G
Whoaoooaa
 
         C/E    F    C   G
Please, stay
Am    F    C    G
Stay
 
OUTRO
 
Am F C G (x2)
