VERSE 1

        Fm
When we kiss
        Asus2/F
That way
  C#maj7     
I search for words
	     D#
That might explain
	Fm
How can a love
	Asus2/F
Go so deep
	   C#maj7
Girl, it's in my blood
	          D#
It'll always be a part of me

BRIDGE 1

A#m7
If we stay together
	Cmadd11  D6/9/E 
or if we go our separate ways
  C+add11    C#/G#
I know
	     Cm7/G
Love will last forever


CHORUS 1

C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    Cm7/11   
The sun may someday lose its light
C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    A#m7/9
The moon may not shine one night
C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    Cm7/11
But your heart will always have a home
      A#m7/9     C#maj7
It is written in stone
C#maj7     Cm7
Written in stone

VERSE 2
Fm
Seasons go by
    Asus2/F
and minds have changed
	   C#maj7
but I will never doubt
	 	D#
why I feel this way
	Fm
It goes on
	Asus2/F
So strong
	C#maj7
Like a solid rock,
		     D#
even when the moment's gone

BRIDGE 2

A#m7
Nothin' lasts forever
	       Cmadd11   D6/9/E
but one thing's sure to stay the same
  C+add11       C#/G#
I know
		Cm7/G
Love is getting better

CHORUS 2

C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    Cm7/11   
The sun will someday lose its light
C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    A#m7/9
The moon may not shine one night
C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    Cm7/11
But I know just how the story goes
      A#m7/9     C#maj7
It is written in stone
C#maj7     Cm7
Written in stone

BRIDGE 3

G#
True love is timeless
A#m7
and unconditional
C#m7			G#
you don't need to read or write at all
G#
I can see the future
A#m7
Happiness won't fade away
C#m7
The sun is in the sky 
G#		      G#
just like it was yesterday
           A#m7       C#m7
(heeeeee . . . )
G#	Cm7  

CHORUS 3

The sun will someday lose its light
C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    A#m7/9
The moon may not shine one night
C#maj7             A#7sus4/11    Cm7/11
But your heart will never be alone
      A#m7/9     C#maj7
It is written in stone
C#maj7     Cm7
Written in stone   

POST-CHORUS - This starts immediately after "CHORUS 3," with Daryl's "God, true love is
timeless . . ." After "CHORUS 3" just strum the chord progression of the choruses over
and over again until the end of the song.


NOTE: This is a beautiful song - although there isn't a lick of guitar in the track, this
arrangement should capture the essential sound and feel, especially on an acoustic.
If "INTRO" makes no sense, just ignore it.
