-same chord pression throughout the song-

The plane took off and my love went with it.
The chilly wind whipped my both cheeks hard.
And the man next to me said ‘Everything is gonna be alright’.
I said ‘Nothing is gonna be alright, but thank you anyway’.
And then I saw your face in the airplane window.
I waved my hands and I shouted to you:


EE chord
  Tonight tonight tonight tonight
BB chord                     DbmDbm chord
  I wanna be with you Tonight tonight tonight tonight
AA chord            BB chord
  I wanna be with you tonight


I wore a T-shirt and my worn out hat.
Abandoned as a summer cat.
And as I stood there as a broken hearted
I realized you got the car keys still.
So I broke into my own old car.
I fell asleep on the passenger seat.
I dreamed of summer xxx with you
and you whispered in my ear:


EE chord
  Tonight tonight tonight tonight
BB chord                     DbmDbm chord
  I wanna be with you Tonight tonight tonight tonight
AA chord            BB chord
  I wanna be with you tonight


Why can’t you leave me tomorrow instead?
Why can’t you leave me tomorrow instead?

And above the clouds she said to her self
'I can’t believe how naive a man can be.
That’s why I love you so and that’s why I can’t be with you…’


EE chord
  Tonight tonight tonight tonight
BB chord                     DbmDbm chord
  I wanna be with you Tonight tonight tonight tonight
AA chord            BB chord
  I wanna be with you tonight


I kissed you good bye at the airport.
I held you so close to me I said
‘So here we are now and I can’t stop from crying Lilly’.
