Now and forever, my love and I.

Rain has to fall if the flower is to grow.

And the night has to come, if the moonlight is to glow.

                C                       D                    G

If the ocean is to breath.

There ain't no broken heart love cannot mend.

         Ab                          Eb
My mamma said no one knows what your life has got in store.
Db                              Eb
You may go walking on the Moon, you may be rich or poor.
      Ab                       Eb
But I know for certain, if you try to reach the stars.
Db                         Eb
Anything is possible, your dreams are what you are.

C7                                              Ab
But when it comes to matters of the heart there is no guarantees.
Db                                   Eb
All that I can say to you is what my mamma said to me.

CHORUS
Db               Ab        Db
So one day in my lifetime, when my world falls apart.
D                              E         A
I won't cry, I'll just tell my heart, my heart. . . . .

Chorus:
         A              D     A                 D 
Love can give, love can take, love can bend and love can break.
                          A                 E          A           D 
When you think it's over, it's not the end. Don't give in, just be strong.
A                   D             E
And please remember son, my mamma said.
      D                          A
There ain't no broken heart love cannot mend.
      D                          A
There ain't no broken heart love cannot mend.

          C                         F             Am G    
I sit and wait. Does an angel contemplate my fate.
            C                                              F   Am G        
And do they know the places were we go when we're grey and old.
                F                              Am           F
Cuz I have been told that salvation lets their wings unfold.
             Bb
So when I'm lying in my bed,
         F
Thoughts running through my head,
      C
And I feel that love is dead.
 Bb        F      C    
I'm loving angels instead.

Chorus:
               G                  Am
And through it all she offers me protection, 
                  F                            C
A lot love and affection, whether I'm right or wrong.
                   G                   Am
And down the waterfall wherever it may take me,
                         F
I know that life won't break me.
               Em                 Dm
When I come to call, she won't forsake me.
Bb         F      C

C                                              F              Am G
When I'm feeling weak and my pain walks down a one way street.
         C                             F                 Am G
I look above and I know I'll always be blessed with love.
    Bb        
And as the feeling grows 
    F
she breathes flesh to my bones
      C            
And when love is dead, 
Bb         F      C
I'm loving angels instead.
