There's many who'll tell you they'll give you their love

But when they say "give" they mean "take"

They'll hang 'round just like vultures 'til push comes to shove

They'll take flight when the Earth starts to shake

Some may say that they'll always be true

Then slip out the door 'fore the dawn
**
But I won't leave you hangin' on

Another may stay 'til they find someone new

Then before you know they'll be gone
**
But I won't leave you hangin' on
**
No, I won't be that someone

E |-----0-0--00-0-----|

Em                         C              Am
And come what may, I won't abandon you or leave you behind
Em                                     C             Am
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a moment
Em                           C              Am    
And come what may, I will be standing right here by your side
Em                                           C                 Am
I won't run away, though the storm's getting worse and there's no end in sight



Some talk of destiny, others of fate

But soon they'll be sayin' goodbye
**
But I won't leave you high and dry

Because a ring don't mean nothing if you can't haul the weight

And some of them don't even try
**
But I won't leave you high and dry
**
I won't leave you wondering why

Pre-Chorus

Em                         C              Am
And come what may, I won't abandon you or leave you behind
Em                                     C             Am
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a moment
Em                           C              Am    
And come what may, I will be standing right here by your side
Em                                           C                 Am
I won't run away, though the storm's getting worse and there's no end in sight


Am                     G
And storms will surely come
Am
But true love is a choice you must make
               G       Am                      G
And you're the one that I have set my heart to choose
Am                                       Em
As long as I live, I swear I'll see this through


Em                         C              Am
And come what may, I won't abandon you or leave you behind
Em                                     C             Am
Because love is a loyalty sworn, not a burning for a moment
Em                           C              Am    
And come what may, I will be standing right here by your side
Em                                           C                 Am
I won't run away, though the storm's getting worse and there's no end in sight
