(Starts with descending cascade in Dm (Harmonic Minor) 4 measures)

Dm                                A7
   I`ve been so many places in my life and time,
F                                                 G7
   I`ve sung a lot of songs,   I`ve made some bad rhyme,
     A#                   Am7          Gm7                 Am7
I`ve acted out my love in stages, with ten thousand people watching,
Gm7                Am7          A#                       F
   but we`re alone now, and I`m singing this song to you.

Dm                         A7
I know your image of me is what I hope to be,
F                               G7
   I treated you unkindly,  but darlin`  can`t you see,
        A#                    Am7     Gm7                          Am7
There`s no one more important to me,  darlin` can`t you please see through me,
Gm7                Am7                 A#               F
   Cus we`re alone now and I`m singing this song to you.

Dm                     A7             F                 G
You taught me precious secrets of the truth withholding nothing,
A#                 C               F       F/E
   You came out in front and I was hiding,
    Dm              A7          F                        G
But now I`m so much better, and if my words don`t come together,
A#                Am7              Gm7             C7
    Listen to the melody, cause my love`s in there hiding.
