CM7 A9 Am First the tide rushes in, Dm G6 Plants a kiss on the shore, C C/B G6 Am7 Then rolls out to sea F Em Dm7 Dm7/9 G And the sea is very still once more. CM7 A9 Am So I rush to your side Dm - Dm7 G Like the on - coming tide C C/B With one burning thought: Em7-5 A Will your arms open wide? F E At last, we're face to face, Am Am7 D7 And as we kiss through an embrace, C C/B Am Am7/G I can tell, I can feel, F Fdim G7 C C/B You are love, you are really mine Am Am7/G Fm7 G In the rain, in the dark, in the sun. CM7 A9 Am Like the tide at its ebb, F Fdim G C Fdim C I'm at peace in the web of your arms.
