Intro: D|G|D|A|Bm|F#m|G|D A|

D       A        D                G
I don't get many things right the first time
   D          Bm          C     F#m(strum once)  C 
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns,
    D            Bm               F#m  A
And stumbles and falls brought me here

Bm            G            Bm
And where was I before the day
             E               A
That I first saw your lovely face
      F#m          G    F#m  G
Now I see it every day
    D A
And I know
     D A  Bm
That I am
I am
G A      D         A
I am the luckiest

Interlude: D|G|D|A
[ Tab from: ]
        D        A
What if I'd been born
D             G
Fifty years before you
In a house
     Bm               C      F#m(strum once)  C
On a street where you live
Maybe I'd be outside
       D              G
As you passed on your bike
        F#m    A
Would I know?

Bm       G           Bm
And In a wide see of eyes
        E             A      F#m     G
I'd See one pair that I recognize
    D   A
And I'd know

     D A  Bm
That I am
I am
G A      D       D   A
I am the luckiest

Em         Em               Bm
I love you more than I have
     Bm             D      G    D   A
Ever found a way to say to you

Next door
There's an old man
    D            G
Who lived to his nineties
        D           Bm         C         F#m(strum once)  C
And one day, passed away in his sleep

        A         A
And his wife, she stayed
      D         G               D   Bm  F#m  A  Bm
For a couple of days and passed away

I'm sorry, I know that's a 
Bm             E               A
Strange way to tell you that I know
     F#m  G  G
We belong
     D A
That I know

     D A  Bm
That I am
I am
G A      D        A     D
I am the luckiest
