I'll bring sunshine to you only

Verse 2:

E F#
You better stop, take a look about
E F#
You know what I mean
A D G E
If only you could see the dreams that seem to mean so much to me
A D
Then you'd know the reason why
A E
I would rather say "I do" than say
D A D A
Goodbye and let you go forever

Wouldn't we two be together

Do you know what I mean, can't you read in between the lines

Sometimes I'm talking and it doesn't seem too clear

I'm in love if only you know what I mean
