Intro Verse:

 E        A          C#m7-5       F#7
Though I know that we meet ev'ry night

 E      D              F#m              B7
And we couldn't heve changed since the last time,

Fdim    A         F#m          D9           E7            A    Edim  D9  E
 To my joy and delight, it's a new kind of love at first sight.

  E         A          C#m7-5       F#7
Though it's you and it's I all the time,

E      D        F#m        B7
Ev'ry meeting's marvelous pastime.

Fdim       A         F#m          
You're increasingly sweet, 

       D9       E7   Fdim A  Edim  E   Cdim
So whenever we happen to meet I  greet you


 A     Cdim        E7    A     F#m        Edim    E7-9
With a song in my heart,   I behold your adorable face.

  A    E7-9         F#m   A        Edim      F#m           C#7
Just a song at the start,   but it soon is a hymn to your grace.

 Bm     Bm7/E	B7        Cdim         Bm
When the mu - sic swells, I'm touching you hand

   F#m                 D9   Fdim  C#7   D9
It tells that you're stand - ing near, and

A      Cdim           E7    A       F#m         D9       E7-9
At the sound of your voice,   heaven opens his portals to me.

F#m   Bm7         C#7  F#m       E7-9         F#m         Bm7-5
Can I help but rejoice    that a love such as ours came to be?

F#m   C#7      D  A         F#m         B7
Yet I always knew   I would live life through

 A     Cdim        D9   E7   A
With a song in my heart for you.
