Faith by George Michael

  
Intro: 2/2 ||   C   |   %   |  %  |  %  || 

                              C
 1. Well I guess it would be nice__ If I could touch your bo-dy
               F                                    C
    I know not ev’-ry-bo-dy__ Has got a bo-dy like you
                            C
    But I've got to think twice__ Be-fore I give my heart a-way
                F                                             C
    And I know all the games you play__ Be-cause I play them too

              F                       C
 ** Oh but I need some time off from that e-mo-tion
     F                                 C
    Time to pick my heart up off the floor
                  F                    C     Am
    Oh when that love comes down with-out de-vo-tion
             Dm                                 G
    Well it takes a strong man ba-by__ But I'm show-ing you the door

                               C
Chorus: 'Cause I got-ta have faith__ I got-ta have faith

        'Cause I got-ta have a - faith – a – faith – a – faith

         I got-ta have faith – a – faith – a – faith

          
 2. Ba-by__ I know you're ask-ing me to stay
                           F
    Stay please, please, please, don't go a-way
                                  C
    You say I'm giv-ing you the blues
        
    May-be__ You mean ev’-ry word you say
                     F
    Can't help but think of yes-ter-day
                       C
    And a-no-ther who tied me down to lo-ver-boy rules

        F                      C
 ** Be-fore this ri-ver__ Be-comes an o-cean
        F                                    C
    Be-fore you throw my heart back on the floor
               F                   C       Am
    Oh ba-by I re-con-si-der__ My fool-ish no-tion
            Dm                                  G
    Well I need some-one to hold me__ But I'll wait for some-thing more

                            C
Chorus: Yes I got-ta have faith__ I got-ta have faith

       'Cause I got-ta have faith – a – faith – a – faith

        I got-ta have faith – a – faith – a – faith
