Where it began

^D ^E ^F-^F ^F  ^E-^D
I can't begin to knowing

It's growing strong...

Was in the spring

Then spring became the summer

Who'd have believed

You'd come along...

Touching you...

And when I hurt

^D-^E      ^F   ^F  ^F    ^E-^D
Hurting runs off my shoulders

^C    ^D  ^E  ^E  ^E    ^D-^C   ^D
How can I hurt when holding you?
