Beautiful guitar opening. Just love the guitar harmonies here. Vocalist sings with emotion and great technique. The lyrics are sung with true belief, and written in a style that most people will be able to relate to. The recording is crystal clear and perfectly in balance between guitar and vocal. Great performance here!

- Andy J King

nice work - simple, yet complex. great tempo and sweet guitar.

(COPYRIGHTED 2009)

STEVE DAFOE


CHORUS:

WHEN I KNEW LITTLE PURPOSE, YOU BECAME THE ONLY ONE
AND WHEN THERE WAS RAIN, YOU STAYED THE ONLY ONE....

C (hard strum) Fmaj7 (hard strum C (hard strum) Fmaj7 (hard strum
BRINGING SOME LIGHT, GIVING ME STRENGTH

G (pick low E down to high E) Fmaj7 (G,B,E SOLO)
THROUGH ALL THE STORMS, YOU BEEN THE ONLY ONE
AND I KNOW THERE'LL NEVER BE ANOTHER ONE........


VERSE 1:

Cm7 Fmaj7
LETTING YOU IN....YOU'RE HOLDING MY HEART
Cm7 Fmaj7
SO SCARED TO DEATH, I CAN ONLY HOLD MY BREATH
Cm7
YOU CAME IN THROUGH PLACES
Fmaj7
THAT I HAD LONG SINCE SEALED
G (Hard) Fmaj7
THROUGH THE YEARS AND TOO MANY TEARS
Cm7 Fmaj7
ONLY YOU FROM A MILLION FACES
Cm7 Fmaj7
ONLY YOU FROM A MILLION FACES



VERSE 2:

Cm7
I TRIED TO RESIST YOUR PULL
Fmaj7 Cm7
DON'T KNOW WHY, HAD TO SAY GOOGDBYE
Cm7
BUT I NEVER FELT SO EMPTY
Fmaj7
ALWAYS FELT SO LOST
G Fmaj7
YOU KEPT WALKING AROUND IN MY MIND
Cm7 Fmaj7
OF A MILLION PEOPLE , YOU SEEM TO KNOW ONLY ME
Cm7 Fmaj7
OF A MILLION PEOPLE , I ONLY KNOW YOU

VERSE 3:

Cm7
YOU HOLD THE CODE TO MY HEART
Fmaj7
EVEN WHEN MY HEAD KEEPS US APART
Cm7 Fmaj7
BUT OVER AND OVER, I STILL FEEL THE PAIN
G Fmaj7
I REFUSE TO THINK ANYMORE
Cm7 Fmaj7
BUT MY LOVE DOESN'T WANT TO GO
Cm7 Fmaj7
BUT DOESN'T KNOW WHERE TO START
