Words & Music by Carl Sigman & Francis Lai
Recorded by Andy Williams, 1971 (#9)

Am           Am+7   Am7
Where do I begin

             Am6          E
To tell the story of how great a love can be

     E7                       Am            Am+7
The sweet love story that is older than the sea

            Am7            E7
The simple truth about the love she brings to me --

E7    Dm7 E7  Am
Where do  I  start?

Am           Am+7   Am7
With her first hello

              Am6             E
She gave new meaning to this empty world of mine

E7                       Am            Am+7
There'd never be another love, another time

         Am7               E7
She came into my life and made the living fine --

    E7/6  E7  A      AM7   A7
She fills my heart.


    A7   Fdim   Dm    Dm7          G7
She fills  my  heart     with very special things

     Dm7      CM7   CM7/6            CM7         CM7/6
With angels' songs,      with wild imaginings

             Dm  Dm+7     Dm7      Am
She fills my soul    with so much love

     Am+7       Dm7           G7
That anywhere I go I'm never lonely

          CM7    CM7/6             FM7
With her around,      who could be lonely

  Dm7                                E7
I reach for her hand -- it's always there

Am               Am+7   Am7
How long does it last

             Am6              E
Can love be measured by the hours in a day

           E7              Am             Am+7
I have no answers now but this much I can say

             Am7                E7             E7
I know I'll need her till the stars all burn  away

    Dm7    E7  Am
And she'll be there.
