Instrumental intro:

FM7     E7     Am    Gm7  -  C7     FM7     E7     Am       Am7

FM7       E7                 Am             Gm7   C7    FM7
I see the crystal rain drops fall, and the beauty of it all 

            E7                 Am    Am7 
Is when the sun comes shining through.

FM7           E7              Am 
To make those rainbows in my mind, 

        Gm7     C7       FM7
When I think of you sometime, 

               E7                  Am  Am7
And I want to spend some time with you. 


FM7                E7          Am     Gm7   C7
Just the two of us,    we can make it if we try, 

         FM7        E7            Am       Am7
Just the two of us,    just the two of us. 

         FM7       E7          Am     Gm7     C7
Just the two of us;  building castles in the sky; 

         FM7        E7        Am 
Just the two of us;   you and I.

We look for love, no time for tears, wasted water's all that is, 
And it don't make no flowers grow.
Good things might come to those who wait, 
But not for those who wait too late
We've got to go for all we know. 

Repeat Refrain:

I hear the crystal raindrops fall on the window down the hall
And it becomes the morning dew.
And Darling, when the morning comes 
And I see the morning sun,
I want to be the one with you. 

Repeat Refrain:
