Intro: C C C Verse 1 C Just a look in your eyes again Am F Dm Just to lay in your arms G C Just to be the first one always there for you C C Am Just to live in your laughter F Just to sing in your heart Dm G C Just to be everyone of your dreams come true Verse 2 C C Just to sit by your window Am F Dm Just to touch in the night G C Just to offer a prayer each day for you C C Am Just to long for your kisses F Just to dream of your sighs Dm G C C Just to know that I'd give my life for you Chorus C Am *F *G For you for the rest of my life C Am *F *G For you all the best of my life C G *F *E *D C For you alone, only for you Verse 3 C C Just to wake up each morning Am F Dm Just to you by my side G C Just to know that you're never really far away C C Am Just a reason for living F Just to say I adore Dm G C C Just to know that you're here in my heart to stay Chorus C Am *F *G For you for the rest of my life C Am *F *G For you all the best of my life C G *F *E *D C For you alone, only for you C Am F Dm G C C+ Outro verse Refrain C Just the words of a love song Am F Dm Just the beat of my heart G C C+ Just the pledge of my life, my love, for you Notes: * bass note or one strum, you choose Notes: + add extra notes, high octave scale run (Piano notes for C played Arrpegio: CGEGCBGE, low to high) Would have to use alternate tuning (perhaps open C)to play exact note run from piano, don't have the low C on guitar, this is not an exact transcription.
