    C ~

 

    C                                     - Dm                           G

1.     Look at me, a woman,         calm and in control,

C                                                       G

    no silly girl whose head's always turning.

C                                           - Dm                            G

    Nobody would guess that,         deep inside my soul

C                                               F

    a brand new flame in me is burning.

 

   G   C   - Em - F               G              C            - Em - F

Only he                has the power to move me,

            G                                 Em                           Am

and together we'd make the whole world move in sympathy.

Dm          G                    C     - Em - F

    But I couldn't see before

        G     C  - Em  - F               G              C           - Em - F

that only he                 has the power to move me,

                 G                              Em                        Am

take me, hold me, mould me, change me and improve me,

Dm           G               C      - C7

    it's not funny anymore.

 

             F

+  Only he can make my burden light,

            C

    only he can make a wrong seem right,

           Dm                          G

    only he can make the shadows bright

              C                             C7

    and make the darkness gleaming white.

     F                  C           Dm               F           Dm    C

    He, him and me, only he has the power to move me !

 

   C                                           - Dm                            G

2.     All the nights I've wasted          dreaming of the time

C                                                 G

    when I'd discover the one to guide me.

C                                      - Dm               G

    Searching the horizon,         didn't realise

C                                            F

    that all the time he was beside me.

 

  G     C   - Em - F              G              C            - Em - F

Only he                has the power to move me,

            G                                 Em                           Am

and together we'd make the whole world move in sympathy.

Dm                  G                   C       - C7

    Hope and pray that I'm in time.

 

             F

+  Only he could stand and wait that long,

                    C

    stand by me when I was going wrong.

                Dm

    What if he couldn't wait ?

 

(orig. moves up half a note to capo 1st here)

 

                 F

    Have I left it too late ?

 

  G    C   - Em - F               G              C            - Em - F

Only he                has the power to move me,

            G                                 Em                           Am

and together we'd make the whole world move in sympathy,

Dm              F                      C       - C7

    him and me we'd be sublime.

 

                     F

+  Can't he see or will he never guess

                    C

    that next time I'm gonna answer “yes“ ?

                    Dm                        F

    Does he know if he comes back today

           C                        C7

    this time I'm gonna make him stay ?

F                 C          Dm

    He, only he, only he has the power,

              G7                            F       C

    ev'ry day, ev'ry hour, he moves me !

 

+  C - Em - F - G - C
