[Verse 1]
G
It's such a beautiful night, to make a change in our lives
D/F#
East Anglian sky, empty bottle of wine
Em
I got you by my side, talking 'bout love and life
Cadd9
Oh how lucky am I, when I look in your eyes?

[Verse 2]
G
What a wonderful way, to spend a moment or two
D/F#
To be lying awake, and be here talking to you
Em
I got something to say, I know what I gotta do
Cadd9
To be making a change, now the moment of truth

[Pre-Chorus]
Am
Why am I feeling so nervous?
C
Things are going so perfect
G
Now I know that it's worth it
D
To spend forever with you

[Chorus]
     G                       D/F#
So I count to three, and get on one knee
          Cadd9            Em7    D
And I ask you, darling honestly
            G                      D/F#
I've waited all this time, just to make it right
            Cadd9                      Em7    D
So I'll ask you, tonight, will you marry me?
         Cadd9
Just say yes
         Cadd9            D         
It's one word, one love, one life

[Verse 3]
G
A gentle touch of the hand, fingers running through hair
D/F#
Lips pressed to my lips, oh I was caught unaware
Em
Oh so many times, I gazed in both of her eyes
Cadd9
What a beautiful way to spend the rest of a life

[Verse 4]
G
Some will reappear, burning auburn and red
D/F#
I'll chest the pill, bring us home to bed
Em
Last night was the night, one last moment of truth
Cadd9
What a wonderful way, to fall in deeper in with you

[Pre-Chorus]
Am
Why was I feeling nervous, when?
C
Things were going so perfect, and
G
Now I know it's worth it, to
D
To spend forever with you

[Chorus]
     G                       D/F#
So I count to three, and get on one knee
          Cadd9            Em7    D
And I ask you, darling honestly
            G                      D/F#
I've waited all this time, just to make it right
            Cadd9                      Em7    D
So I'll ask you, tonight, will you marry me?
         Cadd9
Just say yes
         Cadd9              D 
It's one word, one love, one life

[Outro]
G
Your hand in mine
D/F#
Some things were just meant to be
Em
Hearts intertwined
Cadd9
Some things were just meant to be
G
In perfect time
D/F#
Some things were just meant to be
Em
Oh you and I
Cadd9
Some things were just meant to be
G
Your hand in mine
D/F#
Some things were just meant to be
Em
Hearts intertwined
Cadd9
Some things were just meant to be
G
In perfect time
D/F#
Some things were just meant to be
Em
Oh you and I
Cadd9
Some things were just meant to be
