Verse 1:

 Smile an everlasting smile
                        A [2: orchestra implies A6]
 A smile can bring you near to me
 Don't ever let me find you gone
                    C/G     G
 'Cause that would bring a tear to me

Chorus 1:

 This world has lost its glory
 Let's start a brand new story now, my love
 Right now there'll be no other time
                     A       D7
 And I can show you how, my love

Verse 2:

 Talk in everlasting words
 And dedicate them all to me
 And I will give you all my life
 I'm there if you should call on me

Chorus 2:

 You think that I don't even mean
                  D  [N.C.]
 A single word I say
             G                        D7
 It's only words and words are all I have
                     G     D7
 To take your heart away

[repeat verse with wordless vocal]

[repeat chorus 2]


 (2X, second time acapella):

             G                        D7
 It's only words and words are all I have
                     G     D7
 To take your heart away


 G      D7/F#      G  D7    G [arpeggiate]
