Verse 1:
-------
          G          D          G           '
I thought love was only true in fairy tales 
G            	  D                G        '
Meant for someone else but not for me. 
C                 G
Love was out to get me 
C                   G
That's the way it seemed. 
C                G             	D7   D7(hold)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.

            [G     C] [G
Then I saw her face, 
    C ]     [G     C] [G
Now I'm a believer 
    C ]     [G     C] [G
Not a    trace 
    C ]     [G     C] [G
Of doubt in my  mind. 
    C ] G      C            G
I'm in love,  Ooooo  I'm a believer
	    F		 [D: last 2 bars of Intro Riff]
I couldn't leave her if I tried.


Verse 2:
-------

I thought love was more or less a given thing, 
Seems the more I gave the less I got. 
What's the use in tryin'? 
All you get is pain. 
When I needed sunshine I got rain.
