Capo on 3 if playing with the video

Intro: 4/4 
                       Am
1. Some-times late at night 
  D                             C  - G  | C – G  |
   I lie a-wake and watch her sleep-ing     
          D                  Am
   She's lost in peace-ful dreams
              D                 C                G  – C
   So I turn out the light and lay there in the dark 
  G                            Am   
   And the thought crosses my mind
  D                        C -  G  | C  – G  |
   If I never wake in the morn-ing    
     D              Am
   Would she ev-er doubt 
        D            C            | G  – C  |
   The way I feel a-bout her in my heart 


       G                     C
Chorus: If tomorrow nev-er comes
                                  G
        Will she know how much I love her
                            D       Am             D
        Did I try in ev‘ry way, to show her ev‘ry day
         C              G
        She's my on-ly one 
       G                                C
        And if my time on earth were through
                                      Em
        She must face this world with-out me
                                       Am
        Is the love I gave her in the past 
                              D
        Gon-na be en-ough to last
                            |  G  /  D  C  |
        If to-mor-row nev-er comes...

  G                                   Am
2. 'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
  D                              C -  G   | C  – G  |
    Who nev-er knew how much I loved them
           D                Am        
    Now I live with the re-gret 
                  D                  C             | G  –  C  |
    That my true feel-ings for them nev-er were re-vealed
   G                            Am
    So I made a pro-mise to my-self
   D                               C  -   G  | C  – G  |
    To say each day how much she means to me
           D                 Am                     D            
    And a-void that cir-cum-stance where there's no se-cond chance
        C              G – C
    To tell her how I feel

       G                     C
Chorus: If tomorrow nev-er comes
                                  G
        Will she know how much I love her
                            D       Am             D
        Did I try in ev‘ry way, to show her ev‘ry day
         C              G
        She's my on-ly one 
       G                                C
        And if my time on earth were through
                                      Em
        She must face this world with-out me
                                       Am
        Is the love I gave her in the past 
                              D
        Gon-na be en-ough to last
                            |  G  /  D  C  |
        If to-mor-row nev-er comes...
        
       G                               Am
        So tell that someone that you love
                                  D
        Just what you're thinking of
                            |  G  /  D  C  |  G   |
        If to-mor-row nev-er comes...
