Am E7 Am E7 Dm7 Fdim Am Speak softly, love, and hold me warm against your heart; E7 Am Am+7 F#m F#m7 Dm I hear your words, the tender, trembling moments start. Dm+7 Dm7 G7 Am We're in a world, our very own, Dm E7sus4 E7 Am Sharing a love that only few have ever known. Bridge: G7/B G7 C Wine colored days warmed by the sun, Bb Dm E Deep, velvet nights when we are one. Am E7 Am E7 Dm7 Fdim Am Speak softly, love, so no one hears us but the sky. E7 Am Am+7 F#m F#m7 Dm The vows of love we make will live until we die. Dm+7 Dm7 G7 Am My life is yours, and all because Dm E7sus4 E7 Am You came into my world so softly love.
