feat. John Legend


Emaj
Yes I do, I believe
That one day I will be where I was,
                             Aadd9
Right there, right next to you.
And it’s hard the days just seem so dark,
The moon, and the stars are nothing without you.
     Emaj
Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
                                           Aadd9
No words can explain the way I’m missing you.
Tonight this emptiness, this hole that I’m inside,
These tears, they tell their own story.

 F#m              A            C#m
   Told me not to cry when you were gone,
 B         F#m           A                     E/B  B9sus4
   But the feeling’s overwhelming, it’s much too strong.

Chorus:
         E              C#m          F#m7 A    Asus2 A
     Can I lay by your side, next to you, you?
         E                   C#m
     And make sure you’re alright.
                       F#m7
     I’ll take care of you,
           A                        B9sus4             E
     And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight.

    Emaj
I’m reaching out to you,
              Aadd9
Can you hear my call? Ooh.
     Emaj
This hurt that I’ve been through,
                                     Aadd9        B9sus4
I’m missing you, I’m missing you like crazy, uuh.

Chorus:
         E        G#m/D# C#m         F#m7    A
     Can I lay by your side, next to you, to you?
         E                G#m/D# C#m
     And make sure you’re alright.
                       F#m7
     I’ll take care of you,
           A                        B9sus4             F#m
     And I don’t want to be here if I can’t be with you tonight.

Instrumental: F#m | F#m/A | Dmaj | B7sus2

F#m    F#m/A  Dmaj   B7sus2
Lay me down tonight,
F#m    F#m/A   Dmaj  B7sus2
Lay me by your side.
F#m    F#m/A  Dmaj   B7sus2
Lay me down tonight,
F#m    F#m7/A  B9sus4
Lay me by your side.
    E              C#m          F#m7 Aadd9 B9sus4 E
Can I lay by your side, next to you, you?
