Verse 1

                     G               Em
I found a love for me
                            C                                                         D
Darling just dive right in, and follow my lead

Well I found a girl beautiful and sweet
                     C                                                                                  D
I never knew you were the someone waiting for me


                                                                                G                                                  Em
'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love, not knowing what it was

I will not give you up this ti-ime
                                   G                                                         Em
But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
                             C                                         D
And in your eyes you're holding mine

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark with you between my arms
C                                 G            D                            Em
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
                         C                                      G                                   D                             Em
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
                    C                                   G                D                   G
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight


G     D    Em     D
C              D

Verse 2

Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own


We are still kids, but we're so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we'll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I'll be your man
I see my future in your eyes


Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
I don't deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight
