 D          D6       Gdim
Hide your heart from sight,

Em7       Edim      Gdim
Lock your dreams at night --

D        G         B7
It could happen to you.

G            Em7     A7          DM7
Don't count stars or you might stumble,

Bm7     B7                Em7   A7 Em7/9  A7
Someone drops a sigh, and down you  tum - ble.

D        D6     Gdim
Keep an eye on spring,

Em7       Edim       Gdim
Run when church bells ring --

D        G         B7
It could happen to you.

G  G/F#  Em     G/B     D       F#m        B7
All  I  did was wonder how your arms would be,

G   Em  A7     A7/6  D
And it happened to  me.
