If You Could Only See

	  				  Am		 C
If you could only see the way she loves me
                     G     *      G/F
Then maybe you would understand
                Am             C 
Why I feel this way about our love
                G     *    G/F
And what I must do
                  Am                C                    G     *    
If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says
G/F (break)
     When she says she loves me

*: when you play the G chord mute the A string and hammer on and off second 
fret of the G string for a cool little lick you can here in the recording 
if you listen carefully

Am  - 002210 
C   - x32010 
G   - 3X0033 
G/F - 1X0033

If you don't have someone to play Grt. 2 then you can play it this way 
on  your own and it sounds good

       Well you got your reasons

       And you got your lies
G5 A5              G5 A5      G5 A5    G5 A5
       And you got your manipulations
E5 F5              E5 F5     D
       They cut me down to size
