  F
I call you when I need you
                       F  Dm  Am  F
and my heart's on fire,
    F                                     F  Dm  Am  F
you come to me, come to me wild and wired.
            Dm                       A#
You come to me, Give me everything I need,
            F
You bring a lifetime of promises
                       F  Dm  Am  F
and a world of dreams,
              F
you speak the language of love
                             F  Dm  Am  F
like you know what it means.
                Dm
And it can't be wrong,
                  A#              C
take my heart and make it strong.

better than all the rest,

better than anyone,

anyone I ever met.
                  F      F  C  A#  F
I'm stuck on your heart,
                F               F  C  A#  F
I hang on every word you said,
        Dm    Dm  C  A#  F
Tear us apart,
              C
baby, I would rather be dead.


[Verse]
F
Deep in your heart I see the start of every night
               F  Dm  Am  F
and every day,
F
and in your eyes I get lost,
                   F  Dm  Am  F
I get washed away.
        Dm
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
              A#              C
I could be in no better place.


[Chorus]
                         F      F  C  A#  F
'Cause you're simply the best,
                    F      F  C  A#  F
better than all the rest,
            Dm     Dm  C  A#  F
better than anyone,
         C
anyone I ever met.
                  F       F  C  A#  F
I'm stuck on your heart,
                                F  C  A#  F
I hang on every word you said,
        Dm    Dm  C  A#  F
Tear us apart,
              C
baby, I would rather be dead.


[Bridge]
A#
Each time you leave me I start loosing control,
Dm
walking away with my heart and my soul
A#
I can feel you even when I'm alone
C        D
Oh baby, don't let go
