Valentine    (intro)

 

††† C - F - G - Am - G†††† - C - F - F - G - G7

 

†††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

1. In all the years that we have been together

†††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - Am††††††††††††††††††† Dm††† - G

†† with chocolates and sweets †††††††††Iíve tried to woo,

††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††F

††† the necklaces and rings would number dozens

††††††††† Dm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††G

††† the roses that I bought would fill the room.

†††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††Em

††† But gold and silver tarnish as time passes

†††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††G

††† and chocolate melts in an afternoon,

†††††††††† C††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††F

††† the rosesí perfume easily disperses

††††††††††† Dm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

††† and they donít help to demonstrate the permanence

††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††† C

††† of what I feel for you.

 

+C - F - G - Am - G†††† - C - F - F - G - G7

 

†††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

2 There Ďs so much that is transient around us,

††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††† Dm††† - G

††† relationships can flicker and can die,

†††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

††† the children comfort, soon they, too, will leave us,

††††††††† Dm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† and all along you have been at my side.

††††††††††† Am††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em

††† So I looked around for something that is solid,

††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† to show you how my love cannot be moved,

†††††††††† - C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††F

††† but ††††††††nothing in a shop could ever help me,

††††††††††† Dm

††† for thoughts donít have a hue or form,

††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† C

††† my feelings no material can prove.

 

+C - F - G - Am - G†††† - C - F - F - G - G7

 

 

 

 

 

††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

3. And then at last I came to the conclusion,

†††††††††††† C††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††† Dm†††† - G

††† the places I was looking were all wrong,

†††††††††††† C††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††F

††† the proper gift has no material substance,

†††††††††† Dm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† so I looked into my heart and found this song.

†††††††††† Am††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em

††† For every song once written is immortal,

†††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† and in a song Iíll find it hard to lie.

†††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

††† So even when Iím called to higher portals,

††††††††††† †††Dm

††† youíll know that from this moment on

†††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† C

††† just like my love this song will never die.
