VERSE 1

        G<->G*
What we have
      G<->G*
is so special to me
     Am                  Am(maj7)
That I can't think of anybody
Dm/F           Em7
bringing to my darkness
        Cmaj7sus2
so much light


VERSE 2

        G<->G*
What we have
G<->G*
transcends the length
                    Am    Riff1
of the union we may have
   Am(maj7)       Dm/F
it reaches out to something
  Em7         XX
beyond who we are
XXX               G<->G*
Oooohhhh, what we have


CHORUS

G!<->Gsus2
When thirst filled my throat
            Em/C#
you brought water to my lips
    A/C#
And now looking back:
              Csus2        Csus2*
It was such a small, small sip,
             B7                   Em               G<->G*
that drowned out doubts about the greatness of the world


VERSE 3

        G<->G*
What we have
      Cadd9  D/F#! G<->G*
is so special to   me
      Cadd9  D/F#! G
is so special to   me
