    C         Am7       Dm7      G7     C      Am       Em   C7

Who knows how long I've loved you?  You know I love you still.

       F      G7     Am      C         F       G7    C  Am7  Dm7  G7

Will I wait a lonely lifetime?  If you want me to, I will.


    C    Am7       Dm7   G7     C          Am   Em   C7

For if I ever saw you, I didn't catch your name.

       F       G7     Am      C      F      G7       C   C7

But it doesn't really matter, I will always feel the same.



F           G7   Am7

Love you forever and forever.

Dm            G7     C   C7

Love you with all my heart.

F            G7   Am7

Love you whenever we're together.

D7                   G7

Love you when we're apart.


       C     Am7     Dm7  G7        C         Am7      Em

And when, at last, I find you, your song will fill the air.

C7      F       G7    Am7  F  C         F    G7    Am   F  C

Sing it loud so I can hear you. Make it easy to be near you.


        F          G7   Am       C/G

For the things you do endear you to me.

F       G7     Ab      C  C7

Ah, you know I will. I will.


F                 C/G         G7          Am7

La--- la--- la--- la--- la--- la--- la--- la--- la---

Dm7                           G7          C

La--- la--- la--- la--- la--- la--- la--- la---
