            (Capo 1st fret.)
D           C
Bernadette, people are searchin' for
Bb                    A
the kind of love that we possess.
D           C
Some go on, searchin' their whole life through,
Bb                           A
and never find the love I've found in you.

F          Dm                  Gm            C
And when I speak of you, I see envy in other men's eyes.
F       Dm                   Gm            C
And I'm well aware of what's on their minds.
Gm              F                  C
They pretend to be my friend, when all the time
Gm        F               C
they long to persuade you from my side.
       Gm                     Am
They'd give the world and all they own
for just one moment we have known.

D           C                     Bb                A       C
Bernadette, they want you because of the pride that it gives.
    D           C                   Bb            A
But Bernadette, I want you because, I need you to live.
[ Tab from: ]
F           Dm   Gm      C
But while I live only to hold you,
F          Dm        Gm         C
some other men, they long to control you.
Gm                  F        C
But how can they control you Bernadette,
     Gm              F                C
when they can not control themselves, Bernadette,
     Gm           Am           C 
from wanting you, needing you, but darling, you belong to me.

D                C                    Bb 
Bernadette, I'll tell the world you belong to me.
A                  C   D
I'll tell the're the soul of me.
     C                       Bb                    A
I'll tell the world you're a part of me..Bernadette!

F              Bb                        Dm
In your arms I find the kind of peace of mind
                       A    Bb
the world is searching for.
    F                             Bb     
But you, you give me the joy this heart of mine
    Dm                  A
has always been longing for.

F        Dm        Gm        C
In you I have what other men long for.
F   Dm                  Gm          C
All men need someone to worship and adore.
Gm           F                 C
That's why I treasure you, and place you high above..
Gm           F                 C
for the only joy in life is to be loved.
Gm     Am           C                   D
So whatever you do, Bernadette, keep on loving me,
C                   Bb           A
Bernadette, keep on needing me...Bernadette!

D                      C                       Bb
Bernadette, you're the soul of me..more than a dream,
       A          C
you're clear to me.
    D                    C                  Bb
And Bernadette, you mean more to me, than a woman was 
ever meant to be...(Fade.)
