1. Nights in white sa-tin___ Ne-ver reach-ing the end
 C                G          F                   Em
   Let-ters I’ve writ-ten___ Ne-ver mean-ing to send
 Em            D                Em                    D
   Beau-ty I’d al-ways mis-sed___ With these eyes be-fore
  C                G        F                 Em
   Just what the truth is___ I can’t say any-more

   Just what I’m go-ing through___ They can’t un-der-stand
 Em             D       Em                          D
   Some try to tell me___ Thoughts they can-not de-fend
  C               G           F                 Em
   Just what you want to be___ You’ll be in the end

Chorus:  And I love you___ Yes I love you                   (Stop)
