       Dsus4       G   A   Bm         G           D     D/C#  D/B
1. You fill up my sen-ses___ Like a night in the for-est,
            D/A             G    F#m   Em        G           A7    
   Like the moun-tains in spring-time___ Like a walk in the rain,
                        G   A   Bm         G          D     D/C#  D/B
   Like a storm in the des-ert___ Like a sleep-y blue o-cean,
       D/A         G  F#m  Em      A7        D  | Dsus4  |  D  |
   You fill up my sen-ses___ Come fill me a-gain.

   Dsus4        G    A   Bm        G           D     D/C#  D/B

           D/A            G   F#m  Em        G           A7
   Let me drown in your laugh-ter___ Let me die in your arms,
                       G    A   Bm       G           D     D/C#  D/B
   Let me lay down be-side you___ Let me al-ways be with you,

   Come let me love you___ Come love me a-gain.

Note: With the transition from D/C# to D/B, it is much easier to use the 4th finger to play the bass notes with a smooth transition from chord to chord. Technically, the minute you move your first finger to play the D/B chord, the A note becomes G due to the exposed open string. You are actually playing Dsus4/B but it still sounds fine. D/B in its true form requires a complete shift of all fingers which can be a little awkward in this case... the choice is yours.
