          G     Am                      C                     G
There's a light, a certain kind of light that never shines on me
F                  G            D                    C
 I want my life to be here with you, I wanna be with you
          G  Am                    C                              G
There's a way I hear everybody say, "Just to do everything that I can"
F                      G                  D                    C
 But what good will it do if I can't have you, if I can't have you?

      G                         D        C                         G
Baby, you don't know what it's like, no, you don't know what it's like
G                         D        C                         G
You don't know what it's like, no, you don't know what it's like
            D                 C              G         D
To love somebody, to love somebody the way I love you

I'm a man, can't you see that's what I am? Every breath that I take I take from you
F                             G                  D                    C
 But what good will breathing do if I can't have you, if I can't have you?

You don't know what it's like, no, you don't know what it's like
