D6 Fdim A7 D D6 I never cared much for moonlit skies, Dm6 G6 Dm6 Gm7 I never wink back at fire flies, D F#m B7 But now that the stars are in you eyes, G/B A7 A7+5 D A7 I'm beginning to see the light. D6 Fdim A7 D D6 I never went in for afterglow Dm6 G6 Dm6 Gm7 Or candlelight on the mistletoe, D F#m B7 But now when you turn the lamp down low, G/B A7 A7+5 D I'm beginning to see the light. Bridge: F#7 Used to ramble through the park F7 Shadow boxing in the dark; E7 Then you came and caused a spark Bb7 A7 That's a four-alarm fire now. D6 Fdim A7 D D6 I never made love by lantern shine, Dm6 G6 Dm6 Gm7 I never saw rainbows in my wine, D F#m B7 But now that your lips are burning mine, G/B A7 A7+5 D I'm beginning to see the light.
