Verse1:
D       A        D                G
I don't get many things right the first time
      D         Bm       C           A           A/C#
in fact I am told that a lot.  Now I know all the wrong turns
       D          G               D   Bm   F#m   A
the stumbles and falls brought me here

Chorus:
Bm            G            Bm                E                A
And where was I before the day that I first saw your lovely face?
        F#m       G
now I see it every day

And I    know,    that I am,  I  am,  I am,    the luckiest

What if I'd been born 50 years before you
     D            Bm                 C           A       A/C#
in a house on the street where you live?  Maybe I'd be outside
        D            G            D    Bm   F#m  A
as you pass on your bike would I know?

Bm           G           Bm           E              A      F#m   G
   And in a wide sea of eyes, I'd see one pair that I'd recognize
   D/A   A  A7       D  A   Bm  F#m   G  D/A  A     D       A
And I'd know,   that I am,  I   am,   I  am,    the luckiest

Next door there's an old man who lived to his 90's
        D           Bm          C             A
and one day passed away in his sleep.  And his wife
    A/C#          D         G               D   Bm   F#m  A
she stayed for a couple of days and passed away.

I'm sorry, I know that's a strange way to tell you that I know we belong.
   D/A  A  A7       D  A   Bm F#m  G  D/A  A      Bm    F#m  G  D/A  A  D
