Alicia Keys

Em/C  -  D/B  -  C/A - Bm/G

Bm/G - C/A - D/B - Em/C

Em/C  -  D/B  -  C/A - Bm/G

1st Verse:

Am7 (C/A), G

Some people live for the fortune
Am7                           Bm7  Bm7-Am7-G
Some people live just for the fame
G                        Am7   
Some people live for the power yeah
Bm7                                 D
Some people live just to play the game

Gmaj7       Am7            Bm7      Am7
Some people think that the physical things
  Gmaj7  Am7     Bm7   Cmaj7(Em/C)-Bm7-Am7-Gmaj7
Define what's within
Gmaj7             Am7
I've been there before
     Bm7          Am7
But that life's a bore
   Gmaj7       Am7     Bm7
So full of the superficial

Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing 
If I ain't got you, yea

Verse 2:
Some people search for a fountain
That promises forever young
Some people need three dozen roses
And that's the only way to prove you love them

Hand me the world on a silver plater
And what good would it be  
No one to share
No one who truly cares for me


Outro: ( is same as Intro)

If I aint got you with me baby, no
Said nothin in this whole wide world dont mean a thing,
If I ain't got you with me, babbbayyyy...(adlibbed)

(chromatic scale beginning preferabbly on high C#, last note at end of song= low G )
