(G) Always (C) wanting you, but never (G) having you,

(Am) know I'll be (D) wanting you (G) again.
(G7) Always (C) loving you, but never (D7) touching you,
some (Am) times hurts (D) me (Am) almost more (D) than
I can (G) stand.

INTERLUDE: ( G, C, G, AM, D, AM, D, G )

I'd been (G) better off if I'd turned (D7) away and never
looked at you the (G) second time. 'Cause I really had
my life all (D7) together till your eyes meet (G) mine.
And there I say a (G7) yearning and a (C) felling 'cross
the room that you (G) felt for me. Wish I'd (Am) had
away of (D) knowing that the (Am) things we had in
(D) mind could never (G) be.
