v v v v v v v v
 

Though you don’t call anymore

I sit and wait in vain
I guess I’ll rap on your door (knock on)
Tap on your win…dowpane (tap on your windowpane)
 
I want to tell you, baby, changes that I’m going through
 
Missing you, missing you
 
That’s what I’m gonna do / / / /
1, 2: Dm7 G7 3: to coda 

Living for you, my dear

 
 
Cmaj7 
 
Is like living in  
A 
world of constant fear
Hear my plea, I’ve got to make you see
Our love is dying (our love is dying)

 
repeat 2X

v v v v
 

That’s what I’m gonna do

 
continue

I’m gonna rap on your door (rap on)

Tap on your windowpane open up, baby

 
Tap on your windowpane
