C                       Em
I found myself dreaming. Of silver and gold.
Am                            F     Em v2  Dm    Dm/G
Like a scene from movie. That every broken heart knows.

C                            Em
We were walking on moonlight. When you held me close.
Am                                         F     Em v2  Dm    Dm/G
Split second and you disappeared. And then I was all alone.

   C                                    Em                    
I woke up in tears with you by my side. Breathe of relief and I realized.
Am                 F     Em v2  Dm    Dm/G             
    No, we're not promised tomorrow.

             C                       Em
So Im gonna love you like Im gonna lose you.
          Am                        F v2
Im gonna hold you, like Im saying goodbye.

               C                             Em
Wherever we're standing, I won't take you for granted.
                  Am                               F v2
Cause we'll never know when, when we'll run out of time.

            C                        Em
So Im gonna love you like Im gonna lose you.

C                      Em
In the blink of an eye. Just a whisper of smoke.
Am                             F     Em v2  Dm    Dm/G
You could lose everything. The truth is you never know.

C                           Em
So I'll kiss you longer baby. Any chance that I get.
Am                                        F     Em v2  Dm    Dm/G
And I'll make the most of the minutes. And love with no regret.

    C                                    
So let's take the time to say what we want.
Em                                   
Use what we got before it's all gone.
Am             F     Em v2  Dm    Dm/G                 
No, we're not promised tomorrow.

             C                       Em
So Im gonna love you like Im gonna lose you.
