         INTRO:  D - Daug - G/D  (twice)


                 G          A
             I.  you wonder are you welcome
                 D      A
                 in the night to wake me.
                 G              A
                 and you say my name softly
                 D               A
                 like a question you were saving.
                 D         G
                 how can I answer maybe?
                 D           G
                 how could I say perhaps?
                 D           G
                 will I ever say I'm sleepy?


                 D                 Daug   G/D   D   Daug   G/D
      CHORUS A:  you don't have to ask.
                 D                 Daug   G/D   D   Daug   G/D
                 you don't have to ask.


                 G           A
            II.  sometimes I make you worry,
                 D            A
                 will I leave you someday
                 G           A
                 because sometimes I need you
                 D        A
                 when you need some space?
                 D          G
                 but when I look toward you
                 D             G
                 like a flower to the sun,
                 D            G
                 could I ever turn and run?


                 /// REPEAT CHORUS A ///


          Daug(add9)                  Gm/D  Daug(add9) Bb/D Gm/D Daug(add9)
 BRIDGE:  if I can give you something,
          Bb/D        Gm/D  Daug(add9)  Bb/D  Gm/D  Daug(add9)
          anything at all,
            Bb/D            Gm/D  Daug(add9)  Bb/D  Gm/D  Daug(add9)
          including days of freedom
                   Bb/D        Gm/D  Daug(add9)  Bb/D  Gm/D  Daug(add9)
          when you need to be alone...


                 /// REPEAT CHORUS A ///


                 G           A
           III.  will one outlive the other?
                 D              A
                 will fate tear us apart?
                 G        A
                 are we together this day,
                 D        A
                 tomorrow lonely hearts?
                 D                    G
                 and will the outside world destroy us
                 D              G
                 with looks and verbal hail?
                 D            G
                 and will our love prevail?


                 D                 Daug   G/D   D   Daug   G/D
      CHORUS B:  you don't have to ask.
                 D                 Daug   G/D   D   Daug/sus4   G6/D   D
                 you don't have to ask.
