Fm9                                             Eb (add 9)

I must have loved you once; a love so deep, so true.

          Dbmaj7                Eb                      Fm9

Your presence now is more than I can bear.

      Fm9                                     Eb (add 9)

My heart cannot be still while I am by your side.

   Dbmaj7        Eb                      Fm9

And I cannot walk away from you.

 

   Eb                  Db             Fm                  Ebadd9

I want to run away. Take back the night and the day.

                   Bbm7 Ab          Eb                  Gbmaj7 Fm7        Eb

But you are still here with me... You are   still     here with me...

   Dbmaj7        Eb                     Fm9

And I cannot walk away from you.

       Ebadd9

From you...

     Db             Eb                     Fm9

No, I cannot walk away from you....
