-Luther Vandross


Tuning: Standard
Capo: Optional (Refer downstairs...)

____________________________________________________________

VERSE
                        F
I thought some time alone
                        C
Was what we really needed
                         F
You said this time would hurt more than it helps
    G           Am
But I couldn't see that
                        F
I thought it was the end
                C  -  Am
Of a beautiful story
                   F                         Em
And so I left the one I loved at home to be alone (alone)
         Am
And I tried and found 
     G                 Em
Out this one thing is true
           Am               Dm
That I'm nothing without you
        Em
I know better now
          F                G
And I've had a change of heart


CHORUS
                F               G              Em                 Am - G
I'd rather have bad times with you, than good times with someone else
                F               G                  Em           Am - G
I'd rather be beside you in a storm, than safe and warm by myself
                F               G            Am  -   G   -  F
I'd rather have hard times together, than to have it easy apart
    Dm   -  Em  -   F   -   G   C
I'd rather have the one who holds my heart
        Dm - Em - F -
Whoo-oo-oo-oo yeah


VERSE
   - G               F
And then I met someone
                        C
And thought she could replace you
                     F
We got a long just fine
                   G            Am
But wasted time because she was not you
                  F
We had a lot of fun
                        C  -  Am
Though we knew we were faking
                 F                                   Em
Love was not impressed with our connection built on lies, on lies
        Am                 G                    Em
So I'm here cause I found this one thing is true
           Am               Dm
That I'm nothing without you
        Em
I know better now
          F                G
And I've had a change of heart


CHORUS
                F               G              Em                 Am - G
I'd rather have bad times with you, than good times with someone else
                F               G                  Em           Am - G
I'd rather be beside you in a storm, than safe and warm by myself
                F               G            Am  -   G   -  F
I'd rather have hard times together, than to have it easy apart
    Dm   -  Em  -   F   -   G   C - G/Bm - Am
I'd rather have the one who holds my heart
      Dm - Em - F - G
Who holds my heart
