Verse 1
G                               D/F#
 You taught me everything and everything you’ve given me 
C 
 I always keep it inside 
G                    D/F#        C
 You’re the driving force in my life, yeah

 There isn’t anything or anyone that I can be
C
 And it just wouldn’t feel right

 If I didn’t have you by my side 

     Bridge
                Am                      G

     When skies were grey 
                 Am                   G
     Whenever I was down, you were always there 
            D/F#
     To comfort me 
                Am                         G 
     And no one else can be what you have been to me 
              D/F# 
     You will always be
