Bm7 E7-9 Never let me go, love me much too much; Am7 Cdim If you let me go life would lose it's touch. G6 GM7 F#7 What would I be without you? F7 FM7 E7 There's no place for me without you. Bm7 E7-9 Never let me go, I'd be so lost Am7 Cdim If you went away, G6 GM7 F#7 There'd be a thousand hours in the day Fdim E7 D9 AM7 D9 Cm7-5 AM7 Without you, I know. E7-9 AM7 Bm7 E7-9 Because of one caress, my world was overturned; Bm7-5 E7-9 Am7 Cdim At the very start, all my bridges burned by my flaming heart. G6 GM7 F#7 You'd never leave me, would you? F7 FM7 B7 You couldn't hurt me, could you? D9 Fdim E7/6 Cdim A Never let me go, never let me go.
