1. I know Iíve had you troubled, and I know Iíve seared your mind,

†††† ††††††††††††††Bm†††††††††† G††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

††† But you know that I love you and that our loveís not blind.

†† †††††††††G†††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em

††† Iím sure my dreams lie with you, but Iíve many more beside,

††† ††††††††Bm†††† ††††††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

††† and if I canít see them through, our love will slowly die.

 

†††††††† ††††Em††††††††††††† ††††††C††††††††††††††† ††††††††††G

††† So if you doubt for the time that youíre spending,

†††††††† ††††Em††† †††††††††††††††††††C†††††††† ††††††††††G

††† and if you doubt for the love in your heart,

†††††††† ††††††††††D†††††††††† †††††††††††C†††††††††† ††††Em C

††† think of London and the girl youíre returning,

†††††† †††††††††††††G††††† ††††††††††D†††††††††††† ††††††††G

††† and the days you defend will turn to gold.

 

†††††††††††††††† †††††††††††G†† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

So love with your eyes, love with your mind,

††††††††††† †††††Em †††C†††††††† †††††††G†† †††††- D

love with your, dare I say forever.

††††††††††† †††††††††††G†††††††††††† ††††††††††D

Do it for yourself, do it for the girl,

††††††††† †††Em†† C†††††††† †††††††G†† ††††††- D

do it for you, dare I say forever !

 

††† ††††††††††††††††††G††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em

2. And Iíve known pious women whoíve led such secret lives,

†††† †††Em††††††††††††††††††† G†††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††D

††† shameless in the dark, so shameful in the light.

†††† ††††††††G††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em

††† But you may not be pious, and I may not be saved,

†††† ††††††Em††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††D

††† but we could live quite happily and quietly unfazed.

 

†††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††† †††††††††G

††† So if you doubt for the time that youíre spending,

††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††† G

††† and if you doubt for the love in your heart,

†††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††† Em C

††† think of London and the girl youíre returning,

††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† and the days you defend will turn to gold.

 

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††D

love with your, dare I say forever.

†††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† D

††††††††††††† Em††† C††††††††††††††† G†††††††† - D

do it for you, dare I say forever !

 

††††††† ††††††††Em†††† ††††C†††††G

+I was dreaming of the Liffey,

†††††† †††††††Em†††† ††C††††† †††††G

††† I was thinking of the Thames.

††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††Em†††† ††††††††C†††††† †††††††G

††† And now the East River flows by to the same end.

†††† †††††††D†††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††C

††† Are we too sentimental to not look back and stare ?
