She Believes In Me

Intro: G  C/G  Cm/G  G
While she lays sleeping 
                   G7/B              C 
I stay out late at night and sing my songs 
G/B  Am7              D7         D/C    Bm7 
And sometimes all the nights can be so long 
         Em7                         Am7 
And it's good when I finally make it home  
All alone 
      D7       G 
While she lays dreaming 
             G7/B                  C 
I try to get undressed without the light 
G/B       Am7    D7       D/C      Bm7 
Then she quietly says how was your night 
       Em7                        Am7 
And I come to her and say it was all right -  
D7             G       D4/7 
And I hold her tight 

         G4sus      G 
And she believes in me 
G4sus      G                  F#m5-/7 
I'll never know just what she sees in me 
  B7                      Em     Em7+  Em/D# 
I told her someday if she was my girl 
        Em7 Em/D   Em6 Em/C#     Am7 
I could change the world with my little songs   
I was wrong 
            G4sus    G 
But she has faith in me 
G4sus    G            F#m5-/7 
And so I go on trying faithfully 
B7                           Em 
And who knows, maybe on some special night 
Em7+  Em7     Em6 
If my song is right 
I will find a way 
Find a way 
While she lays waiting 
                 G7/B          C 
I stumble to the kitchen for a bite 
G/B    Am7        D7        D/C  Bm7 
Then I see my old guitar in the night 
     Em7                         Am7 
Just waiting for me like a secret friend  
And there's no end 
      D7       G 
While she lies crying 
               G7/B       C 
I fumble with a melody or two 
G/B      Am7              D7     D/C          Bm7 
Then I'm torn between the things that I should do 
         Em7                           Am7       D7  G 
Then she says to wake her up when I am through 
God her love is true

          G      C/E       Cm/G      G 
While she waits, while she waits for me
