The violin playing by Clare Trivett on this song is beautiful It was written for my wife for a special anniversary. Hope it has some resonance for you.


Thank you for being who you are


Verse 1
C Dm Em F C G C G
I remember when I first saw you, dressed like a model from your hair to your shoes
C Dm Em F C G C G
And although I wanted to be with you, I just assumed I’d be the one who would lose
Am G F G Am G F G
Sometimes I wonder if I hadn’t met you, how life would be different if I were for hire

C C(+ note B) Am F C G Am F
I know if I were alone, I never would get very far
C C(+ note B) Am F C G C
I wouldn’t change a single thing, so thank you for being who you are.

Verse 2
And when we’re going to a party, you’re pulling out dresses and asking my views
And you ask me which I prefer but I know I must pick the one you would choose
Sometimes I think I’ve got everything sorted and then you make me completely confused


Verse 3
Sometimes your mood is like Winter, I can feel it as soon as I walk in the room,
But at times your laughter is everywhere, sparkling like crystal, reflecting the sun;
Sometimes I think your eyes are like fire, I can’t make out what I said that was wrong


Middle 8
F Em Dm C G
Everything we’ve shared is there in your eye
F Em Dm C G
There’s nothing so wonderful as watching the changing sky


Verse 4
And when I think of the future, I can’t help but wonder how it will end
Diamonds and palaces, all kinds of riches could never replace the touch of your hand
You have been everything I’ve ever needed, a brother, a sister, a lover, a friend

Repeat last line twice.
