Intro Chords   A D A
A                      E
I can't find a reason to let go

Even though you've found a new love
           F#m                   D
And she's what your dreams are made of
A                    E
I can find a reason to hang on
             F#m           D

      C#m     F#m       A
Some-times I wake up crying at night

Some-times I scream out your name
      C#m            F#m      A      
What right does she have to take 1.)you-ou away 2.3.)your heart away

I took out all the pictures of our wedding day
          F#m               D       F#m         D
It was a time of love and laughter Happy ever after
A                                 E
But even those old pictures have begun to fade
        F#m               D                    F#m           D       A

I can give you two good reasons To show you love's not blind
A                   E             D   
He's two and she's four and you know they adore you
