      G                                   Em
1. I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
     G                          Em
   I on-ly know I nev-er wan-na let you go
        C            D            Am7       D7
  'Cos you start-ed some-thing___ Can't you see that
   G                                Em
   Ev-er since we met you've had a hold on me
       Am             D7       Am7           D7     | G  C  D  - |
   It hap-pens to be true___ I on-ly want to be with you

       G                                Em
2. It does-n't mat-ter where you go or what you do
      G                               Em
   I wan-na spend each mom-ent of the day with you
       C             D                Am7       D7
   Oh look what has hap-pened___ With just one kiss
      G                              Em
   I nev-er knew that I could be in love like this
         Am              D7       Am7           D7     | G  C  G  - |
   It's craz-y but it's true___ I on-ly want to be with you

   D                               Em        A7       D7

   G                            Em
3. I just wan-na be be-side you ev-‘ry-where
