Verse  1
E                              Amaj7           G# - Amaj7(V) - G#7  
Here we are alone in this old smokin' room again
             C#m7       F#7                     A
If your highness is your pleasure it's alright
                 E                                                 
Cause there's an extra added goodness
      Amaj7              G# - Amaj7(V) - G#7                   
In my heart for you tonight
           C#m7        F#7                     
If there's any such a thing as God
      A                E
He must be here tonight

Pre Chorus
E(VII)  
Ain't sayin' I'm right
                  Amaj7(V)
Ain't sayin' I'm wrong
                     E(VII)                      Amaj7(V)   
Ain't sayin' there's any such a thing as short or long
Amaj7(V)                    Amaj7(XII)  G#m7(XI)  
It seems you been here many times before
Amaj7(V)              Amaj7(XII)  G#m7(XI)  
It's too beautiful but true
        C#m7(IX)  G#m7(XI)  C#m7  F#7
And I'm glad I got the chance tonight
A                      E
To share my now with you

Chorus
Emaj7(VII)  A(V)
Emaj7(VII)  A(V)

Verse2
I used to be locked in a closet and I couldn't find the key
Used to be you'd look my way but not see me
But it's happiness to know that from yourself you cannot hide
And that here's where I am and it's you that's by my side

Pre Chorus
Ain't sayin' I'm right
Ain't sayin' I'm wrong
Ain't sayin' there's any such a thing as short or long
It seems you been here many times before
It's too beautiful but true
And I'm glad I got the chance tonight
A	           		A
To share my now, share my now
A	        		A
Oh baby baby ?Oh yeah

Chorus

Emaj7(VII) 

A(V)
So glad I gotcha spend some time
                                  Emaj7(VII) 
Spend some time glad I gotcha baby (repeat)
A(V)
So glad I gotcha share my life
  	                          Emaj7(VII) 
Share my life glad I gotcha baby (repeat)
