I even followed the rules
            G             B7 B7/A   Emin9
I closed my eyes I didn't move
                      C                              
If I was only stronger I wish that I was stronger here

Emin9                                                           C
Could I be more lucky than I've grown to be just knowing that I know her
                G                B7              B7/A
Why shouldn't I show her all the wise of getting older
Emin9                                                     C
Could she be more perfect in perfection her reflection is casting
