The autumn leaves were falling
         G
On these old cathedral walls
           Dm                      C
There were candles in the darkness
               G
Singing in the choir
    Am
And reading out the names
           G
Of all the ones who've gone before
              F
Well, I could tell that you were thinking
          C             G
About the meaning of it all
 
 
CHORUS 1:
        F                    G
And you said to me "Who will open up my eyes
       F                              C            G
To the wonder, and the glory, and the stars in the sky?"
        F                    G
And you said to me "For this road I'm travelling on
  Em       F                C G   F   G F
I need someone beside me forever. Who?  Who?"
 
 
CHORUS 2:
  G          C           Dm       G
I said "It's me, and I'm ready to go
E        Am                    F
Ready to show, that I'll never let you down
      C                           G
And I want you to know, that this power will grow
      Am                    F
Every day, every beat of my heart
                   Am
Forever, forever"
 
 
 
We went down to the river
       G
And we found a small café
               Dm
They said that over in the corner
               C            G
Sat the writer Ernest Hemingway
    Am                            G
And here he made his story of the lovers in the war
               F
And through it all they stayed together
         C           G
'Til the rain had to fall
 
 
CHORUS 1:
        F                     G
And you said to me, "Who will be the one apart
         F                                  C           G
Who will teach me, with conviction, all the ways of the heart?"
        F                    G
And you said to me, "On this journey of my life,
       F                     C G   F   G F
I need someone to love me forever. Who?  Who?"
 
 
CHORUS 2:
          G              C           Dm       G
And I said, listen "It's me, and I'm ready to go
E        Am                    F
Ready to show, that I'll never let you down
      C                           G
And I want you to know, that this power will grow
      Am                    F
Every day, every beat of my heart
                         
I love you, I love you"
      C   Dm  G  E  Am
"It's me
               F
And I'll never let you down
      C                           G
And I want you to know, that this power will grow
      Am                    F
Every day, every beat of my heart
 
Forever, I love you, forever"
